We are happy to announce that Tack Trolley Horse and Pet of Fayetteville, Georgia has become our newest retail partner! We love that Tack Trolley caters to the needs of equestrians, as well as cat and dog owners. It always seems that horse people surround themselves with cats, dogs, and all manner of animal friends, so Tack Trolley is a one stop shop that makes total sense! Be sure to stop by and see Janet and her team soon!

P.S. Did you know that our leather care products also work fabulously for your leather dog collars and leashes? Just sayin’!

Featured in Practical Horseman Magazine

The August issue of Practical Horseman held an exciting surprise. Our products were featured in the prestigious and popular magazine’s Tack Room section!

Animal-friendly and created with essential oils, Sterling Essentials’ Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner are formulated to match the pH of leather and protect your tack with effective, natural food-grade ingredients. The therapeutic essential oils used in these products are said to keep mold and mildew at bay while providing aromatherapy-like fragrances.

Tips for a Tidy Tack Room

Are you trying to keep your tack care "stuff" organized and tidy? Sometimes it seems like a constant battle to keep the inevitable pile of soggy, goopy sponges from piling up in the tack room or tack trunk, making a mess of everything they touch. We got tired of our sponges getting away from us and accidentally conditioning our standing wraps, so we’ve got some tips to share with you on how to corral those pesky sponges once and for all!

1. Store you leather conditioner sponge in a resealable plastic sandwich bag. Instant control and portability!

Or even better…

2. Store your leather conditioner sponge in your empty conditioner jar! No mess! Bonus - you're being green by re-purposing/reusing your old conditioner jar!

With Love, From Horse Junkies United

Yes, we can fight the good fight in the tack cleaning arena! Horse Junkies United believes it, too, and recently wrote an amazing article on us and our products!

I was by far the most impressed with the lack of film or tack left behind on my hands (and on the bridle!) after I was finished. Even after using both products, I was simply able to wash my hands to get rid of the dirty leftovers and I was left with a clean slate. Trust me – this was definitely a first for me.
I really hadn’t found a brand to be loyal to in this niche, but I’m going to have to add Sterling Essentials to the top of that new list after using it.
