What to Expect from Badminton Horse Trials

At the start of the year, Badminton seemed like a far off dream, filled with champagne and strawberries. We had visions of beach-chair relaxing at the ringside, sunglasses and flip-flops, with striped dresses and an air of ambience; a dream that helped us through the cold days and dark nights.

Now, four months on, that delusional fantasy has been swiftly pushed to the side-lines as reality has kicked in. We’ve been incredibly busy at PolyPads HQ, prepping equipment, people, PolyPads and more for our first ever trade show.

With determination and a real team effort, we’re well on our way to making our first show fantastic. A brand-new stand and team will be bringing along brand-new PolyPads, still designed in the famously effective and simple style that we all recognise in a heartbeat. We’ll be joined by our sister company, NEW – so you’ll be able to browse our range of performance boots at the same time.

We will of course be taking along our new Elite PolyPads – these stylish competition pads are designed in Dressage, GP and Close Contact cut, to suit your saddle. The high-duty girth guard ensures that these saddle pads have the longest possible life, a trait typical of PolyPads. We’ve also got an exciting PolyPads/NEW crossover in the XC Sets – the colourful Elite PolyPads have been designed to match bright NEW brushing boots! These products are limited, so be quick.

We also recently added the Shetland PolyPad to our collection, and it’s gone down a storm! Perfectly proportioned for smaller ponies, these PolyPads have been expertly modelled by none other than Teddy the Shetland and Kizzy and Ettie! You’ll be able to see an example at the stand, and order in your favourite colours.

What’s more, we’ve also got an exciting competition to WIN a Classic PolyPad! Just go to our stand (56, Swangrove Street), and enter your email on the iPad. You’ll then be entered in our competition, where one lucky winner will be able to choose their favourite colour, thickness and size of a Classic PolyPad, and have it sent out to them.

There’s another sneaky surprise on the way too – all will be revealed on 1st May 2019. This time, it’s nothing to do with horses….

We’re so excited to meet you all – come and join us at stand 56, Swangrove Street!
