Sponsorship or Donation Requests

We greatly value all horse enthusiasts whether you are just getting started, work for a non-profit organization, or will host a charity event. While we would love to give to all those doing admirable work in the equine industry, we are unable to give items to most of the mass requests we receive. You may fill out the Sponsorship Request Form below and we will evaluate your request on a monthly basis. Please ensure that you have submitted your sponsorship request at least one month before the date you would like to receive the sponsorship or donation.

Leather Care with Circle Y

The life of your saddle depends on the care you give it. Take care of your investment with these leather care tips. BRAND NEW Every new Circle Y saddle has been oiled and then lacquered with our own water-based protective finish, which means you don’t need to oil it for about six months. If you’re riding a lot in dry or variable weather conditions, you should oil it sooner. If your saddle is a light color, use a leather conditioner product that is specifically designed for light leather so it will not darken the leather. Helpful tip for show or light colored saddles: oil the back of the leather, not the top, because the leather can darken. ROUTINE CLEANING Unbuckle every buckle on your saddle and tack. Before you start cleaning, remove as much dust and dirt as possible with an air compressor or damp cloth. Leather is a natural material with pores so removal of debris will prevent grinding it into the crevices. Ideally your saddle should be wiped down after each ride. PRODUCTS WE LIKE Use specific leather care products made for cleaning and conditioning leather and follow the instructions. We like a liquid, glycerin based saddle soap to remove mud, grime, mold, and mildew. Follow with a leather conditioner. If your saddle is a light color, use leather care products specifically designed for light colored leather. DO NOT USE: baby wipes, olive or mink oil, turpentine, mineral spirits, waxes, silicones, solvents, bleach STORING YOUR SADDLE After your saddle has been thoroughly cleaned, oiled, conditioned, and air dried, a climate-controlled area is the best place to keep equipment when not in use. If that’s not available, choose a cool, dry location away from heat and sunlight. Never place leather tack in a plastic bag or airtight plastic trunk as this keeps the leather from breathing. REHABILITATE Mold and mildew can form on leather tack when exposed to high humidity. Wipe down the leather everywhere you see the mold/mildew with a glycerin based saddle soap. You’ll be stirring up mold spores when cleaning the tack, so tackle this task outdoors or in a well-ventilated environment. It may take a couple of applications depending on the amount of mold on the saddle. Let it dry and then apply a leather conditioner.
