I would use murphy's with water to clean off mud and dirt, but to me, it was always a first step....

Lexol is for upholstery??? HUH??? It is sold in every tack shop I have ever been in! And all the online horse equipment vendors it is pretty much the product that is the base leather cleaner for horsepeople....some of the other ones posted like Black Rock and Saddle Food are higher end conditioners and also sold in saddlerys...

Horesmans One Step is like magic Horseman's One Step®
I worked with trotters and we used to use Murphy's but I didn't like the feel after cleaning. With One Step it just made the leather sooooo soft.

Hmm I might have been thinking of a different product then... I still prefer Oakwood. It also smells nicer than Murphy's.

Thanks all for the suggestions! This is my first time using leather and I'm totally clueless how too care for it so you guys have helped a ton. Now to decide which product to try out of all the ones you've suggested.
