“I love the Sterling Essentials leather cleaner. I came home from a recent clinic and used it on my paddock boots. Not only did it leave them soft and clean but there was no need to even polish them. And, the added bonus was how soft my hands felt after using the product! What a great idea to combine essential oils with a leather Cleaner!"

Melanie Smith Taylor became one of only two riders to ever win the Triple Crown of Show Jumping—the American Invitational, the International Jumping Derby, and the American Gold Cup—and the only person to win all three on the same horse. After winning the World Cup Final in 1982, she was named the US Olympic Committee Sportswoman of the Year and inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. Two years later, she capped off her show-jumping career with a team gold medal in the Los Angeles Olympic Games.

Today Melanie serves the horse world as a clinician, a television broadcaster for major events, including the Olympics and World Championships, and a recognized judge for hunter/jumpers and hunter seat equitation.
