Ko cho line is also sold in saddlers shops and farmers marts or feed merchants that have an equine section. Look in your local yellow pages under those sections and give them a quick ring:supz:

I'm not keen on putting anything on the gloves as it goes through and makes them feel very cold and clammy. I buy gloves more often but when they are dirty or stiff I use a very stiff wire brush and brush the blazes out of them when they are bone dry I have never put a hole in them in all the years I have been doing it!! Raises the knap and gets all the crud off.

If your glove has become very hard, soak it in rain water and work the leather until soft, this will also help clean it. Stuff the glove with kitchen towel and allow to dry in a COOL dark place for a few hours. While still damp work some Johnsons baby oil (you wanted something from the High St.) into the leather. The Stubben preparation referred to in an earlier post is probably "Hamanol" - superb if you want a gleaming bridle and I don't think it smells of fish! There are many excellent leather care products available and those originating in Germany are amongst the best.
