Re: [RC] [RC] [RC] more leather questions?? - Laurie Durgin

There is something English riders use to 'stick' , it is in some english catalogs. Help me here. "staytite' or "sticktite"? or something like that. They put it on their boots and breeches to help stick. I think new saddles are more slippery. My daughter bought one new and it was slippery , till it got conditoned and broken in.
Or velcrow?

Is there something you can put on the seat of your saddle to make it more...'grippy'? I've got a new one but it's pretty smooth and I don't like that loose/sliding/movable feeling that I get in it. My old saddle has some kind of leather on it that gives just a bit of traction - it's still smooth, no suede or rough out, but it sure seems to hold me in place somehow but really doesn't fit Holly well. Any hints?
