    Silver Care

    We use sterling silver plate on all of our show equipment.  Sterling silver plate will keep its beautiful shine for years and years and requires the same amount of cleaning and care as sterling silver.
     
    All of the silver has a lacquer coating to protect the silver.  The lacquer coating will protect the silver from air born tarnishing agents.  If the silver should start to turn a yellow or gold color or becomes brittle and appears to flake, that is just aging lacquer.  It is not defective.  The lacquer needs to be removed.  It is easily removed with non-brasive silver polish or sprays, made specifically for cleaning silver products.  It may take up to 5 or 6 times to break through the lacquer.  You will know it is removed when the rub marks on your towel are extremely black and the silver is extremely bright.  Once the lacquer is removed, routine cleaning is necessary.
     
    Your silver should be wiped down after each use and polished on a regular basis to keep its beautiful high gloss shine.  It is important to wipe down any silver, such as Romel reins, that come in direct contact with the horse’s body, to eliminate the buildup of dirt and sweat.  Any brand of silver polish will quickly remove any built up tarnish.  It is best to use sprays on larger areas and creams or wipes on smaller areas.

        Comments about Billy Royal� Reata Show Saddle:

        Extremely comfy!! A few of my friends had a ride in it and they loved it too! Silver is great quality and I finally have a saddle that fits my boy perfectly. I've used it to show in and have had a lot of great comments and will be schooling in it until my billy royal work saddle arrives. I have found it rather light after owning a showman.

            Saddle came dirty and scratched in pre-tried condition. Also had some cuts in the leather under cantle area where you could see the tree. Was done during construction of the saddle. Otherwise liked the saddle and seemed to be of good value and price compared to other brands. Had to return due to these above issues otherwise would have kept it.
