Adequate maintenance ofleather products we use in our horse riding is very important. Horse accesories are exposed to dirt, mud, humidity and sweat, factors causing deterioration. With some basic care, you can keep the riding equipment in good condition:
Keep always clean your saddle: use a leather cleaner (step 1) to remove traces of sweat, mud, etc. Enrich and nourish the leather with a leather conditioner (step 2). Apply both products with a sponge for better absorption and a perfect finish.
Apply glycerin bar: in thick leather is convenient to use. When the leather is dry, is very effective leather oil (avoid excess product that will not stain clothes).
If the saddle has suede or suede parts, can brush them with a strong bristle brush (avoid applying products that are not specific to this material can cause damage).
Bridles and other leather products:
1. Clean the leather product with glycerin or use step 1 and step 2 above.
2. Apply leather oil (softens the leather, so it is the right product to beautify the mosqueros of the Spanish saddles).
3. Grease if necessary.
The film adaptation of the popular video game Warcraft reaches the Spanish screens on Friday, June 3 littered with fantastic scenery, special effects, famous actors and… saddles manufactured in Spain.
The production team of the film directed by Duncan Jones chose the company Marjoman (Spain) to make the saddles that would ride the protagonists –and much of the rest of cast of this American blockbuster. Thus, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton and Dominic Cooper (Anduin Lothar, Garona and King Llane in fiction) used in their scenes horse saddles made in Spain but in keeping with the aesthetics of the movie. They also incorporated other accessories like bridles and breastplates.
Jose Luis Castellanos, manager in Marjoman, retains a replica of the saddle made for the character of King Llane, a nice combination of brown leather with royal blue suede leather.
According to Jose Luis Castellanos, “working on this project was a nice experience. The relationship with the production team was very friendly and I think the result was spectacular. The production team of the film Warcraft contacted us in autumn 2013 (shortly before the start of the shoot) for the development of several elements that lead the horses and we were several weeks working closely to get to materialize the designs they had created.”
Marjoman company has extensive experience in developing products for film and television. Another of its major projects was his contribution to the film Prince of Persia. A version of the saddle made for this film belongs to the catalog of Marjoman.

Do you want to know if your saddle was manufactured by Marjoman?
Saddlesmanufactured byMarjomanhas somepeculiaritiesthatmakes it easilyrecognizable.
Traceability: The first and most important is the traceability number, used to to be monitored and controlling the saddle since manufacture. MARJOMAN incorporates it since 2004 in all its saddles. It’s like the “license plate”, each saddle has its own and this reference is different for each.
Where is placed the traceability number of my saddle? In English, Spanish and Portuguese saddles, you can find this number engraved at the inside part of the flap. In English saddles, besides, is placed the model and Marjoman logo.
In “vaqueras” saddles, the traceability number is engraved in the leather that protect the buckles (see picture).
