Disrupting the Traditional Leather Care Industry: An Interview with Street to Stable

Through a mutual Pacific Northwest equestrian connection, we had the privilege of being introduced to equestrian storyteller, Kristin Thornton, and her amazing brand, Street to Stable. A dedicated horsewoman, Kristin has a passion for sharing the tales of those working behind-the-scenes in the equestrian community - the brands, the artisans, the entrepreneurs, the artists that bring together their love of horses, creating a vibrant equestrian world in the process.

We were lucky enough to be featured by Street to Stable, resulting in an interview and a host of tips just for you! Please view the full article here: https://streettostable.com/blogs/news/sterling-essentials

As I was researching more about the brand, I was impressed by the endorsements of notable sport horse professionals including Melanie Smith Taylor (Olympic Gold Medalist- Show Jumping), Dana and Bob Brawley, Brawley Farms Inc. (AA hunter/jumper show barn) and Matt Brown and Cecily Clark, East West Training Stables (International Eventing Competitors). It was evident that this company was offering an alternative that filled a niche and was appreciated by equestrians of all levels.

After reading more about the ingredients, fragrances, and who stands the brand, I recognized that it is a better solution to my daily equipment cleaning because as their tagline states, it is “GENTLE ON YOUR LEATHER, GENTLE ON YOU.”

No Muss, No Fuss - Clean, Shiny Boots in Less than 30 Seconds

No muss, no fuss - clean, shiny boots in less than 30 seconds! :) How to do it? TIP: Giving your much abused, often overlooked boots some love is so quick and easy with our Leather Cleaner. After you've cleaned your tack, use the same towel to wipe down your boots. You don't even need to spray more product on the towel because the towel is still damp enough from the little bit of cleaner residual left from cleaning your tack. It works and is a snap - save on time, save your boots, AND get the most out of your cleaner!
