PolyPads - One Year Later

December is a special month for the PolyPads team. In December 2018 the company was taken over, from which point a new lease of life was injected into the brand, fuelled by the tireless passion of the PolyPads team and the commitment and belief of our wonderful customers. In this past year we’ve changed our logo, created new products, developed an easier to use website and released new colours, bringing excitement and development to the brand – without falling behind on the quality that is so recognisable within PolyPads.

Olympia is the last show of the year, with our first being the wonderful Badminton Horse Trials back in May 2019. The event marks a huge leap in our brand’s recognition and the journey that the brand has been on. Olympia is often described as a ‘magical’ event, with halls upon halls of equestrian shops – you’ll feel like a child again as you explore the shops, find your favourite brands and re-live the magic of Christmas. Beyond the shopping is the entertainment – cheer at the Shetland Grand National, be awe-inspired at Jean-François Pignon’s performances and pick up some top tips at the Dressage masterclass. The countdown to Christmas is truly on with Olympia, with festivities everywhere you look.

When you’re ready to immerse yourself in the shopping experience, you’ll find the PolyPads team standing proud in the halls of Olympia. Our team bring with them a plethora of knowledge about the brand, the product and how it can help you and your horse. They can help you design a bespoke PolyPad, choose the best bed for your dog and help with sizing for your horse or pony – this tailor made service is only available due to the hand-cut nature of each product, made in Britain by our experienced team. You’ll even have a couple of days to make some last-minute orders in time for Christmas – but make sure you head over to the stand early. You can find our team at stand D44 on the ground floor of the Olympia halls. They’ll be there from Monday 16th December to Sunday 22nd December, fuelled by lots of Christmas cheer! If you can’t make it to Olympia, make sure you’re keeping an eye on our social media pages for updates across the week.

We’d like to extend our thanks to all of our customers that have made a purchase on our website, been over for a chat at shows, or even just made an interaction on social media - we’re delighted that PolyPads still has such a loyal fanbase, over 30 years after it was first created. We’re so excited about our next adventure at Olympia and can’t wait to see what 2020 brings us!
