Jay-El has long been one of Joseph Lyddy’s most popular products. Here is what our customers have had to say:
What can I say really? I’ve been using Jay-El for most of my life; I’ve been brought up with it alongside the horses! It penetrates deep into the leather, sinking into the pores; nourishing and preserving even the toughest and damaged of grain. I’ve left countless saddles out in the rain before, but the structured layer provided by the beeswax enhances the durability of the leather leaving them as perfect as ever (against all odds!). Not only that; the silky finish left behind maximises comfort in the saddle. I don’t think I could live without it! I don’t think it’s possible to describe something so amazing without going overboard! – Anne H, Altona North, Vic
I used Jay-El along with leathaphane to restore a vvveerrryy old dressage saddle I picked up for $50. I used the Leathaphane to initially condition and ‘feed’ the leather, but I’m pretty Jay-El was the magic item. I used it daily to soften out the sandpaper like skin, bring out a shine from the dull patches, and keep the leather glowing like new. Also loved the wax like coating left by the beeswax, made the saddle so comfortable to sit into. In the end, I lent this saddle to a friend for the Garryowen (it looked that good!) I’ve got Jay-El to thank!– Millie Bryce

Love my Jay-El as it brings leather back to life and the fastest way to soften new gear! – Jane Reid via Twitter
It makes the saddle as comfy as a pillow, as shiny as the sun and more durable than anything. It nourishes and keeps the leather well maintained and keeps it in mint condition. You can’t go wrong with Jay-El – Sharlene Quinn via Facebook
