Leather is a natural product and needs regular maintenance. Not only cleaning and greasing is important, but it also needs to be check on loose stitching and cracks. Please save greasing! Greasing leather too much, with grease, Balsam and oil will keep the leather soft and rather cracking. Clean the leather of bridles, saddles and reins regularly with a saddle SOAP, it removes dirt, including skin oils of your horse. Rub the cleaned leather dry with a soft cloth and allow to air dry. Grease only the dry parts of the leather with balm, grease or oil.
