I have had tack (saddles, bridles, breast collars, etc) leather & nylon all my life, I took care of it all.
So I have never had to deal with this before so maybe someone out there knows how and can share…
I recently got a crate full of miscellaneous tack (mainly harness bits-n-pieces), a lot of it is nylon but some is leather.
Either way, it’s not really about that- it’s about the buckles and such (things that can’t just be easily removed and replaced). There’s also a dull snaffle in there as well.
Most of the buckles are rusty, green stuff on them (assume corrosion), or somewhat rusty, etc. ---- Is there any way to save these?
Some of the tack is really nice, I don’t think I could manage to throw it away due to this.
Thinking I might go at some of them with a wire brush or sandpaper and see.
So is there anything that would work short of replacing them the hard way (removing and having to take the pieces somewhere to sew it back up) or tossing them?
