Which thickness do I need?

We understand that our horse/ponies change shape which could be many reasons – weight gain, weight loss or muscle wastage. The three thicknesses cater for varying levels of fitness, age and workload of your horse.

PolyPads should not be used as a remedy for an ill-fitting saddle; they are ideal for distributing pressure along the back and offering increased back support.

Our thicknesses are ‘Single’, ‘PlusOne’ or ‘Doubler’. The Single is our standard pad, with no additional inserts.

We offer the ‘PlusOne’ option within our pads; this is perfect for those who are slightly underdeveloped along the topline from a lack of fitness, or for those who have reduced from the thickest pad, the ‘Doubler’. The ‘PlusOne’ option includes one extra insert.

The ‘Doubler’ option is designed for horses who need a kinder fit when being re-introduced to work. The gentle, weight-distributing fit is the ideal way to begin recovery and move into a position of fitness. This consists of two inserts. The Doubler is a popular choice for racing yards.

How should my PolyPad fit?

It is important that you fit the PolyPad correctly to achieve the best comfort for your horse and to reduce the chances of the PolyPad slipping back. When you fit your PolyPad, ensure that it is pulled up into the gullet of the saddle to prevent bunching and rubbing, something that could also cause the PolyPad to slip back.

You will need to have approximately an inch of the PolyPad in front of the saddle to allow for it to grip and prevent slipping. This is very important to achieve a secure fit. 

If your PolyPad slips, we would recommend that you speak with your saddle fitter to ensure that your saddle and PolyPad are fitting well together. It may be that your horse has changed shape and that a different fit is required.

Can I have my logo embroidered?

Yes, we can embroider your logo from a JPEG, DST or EMB file. If your logo is supplied as a JPEG, the logo will need digitising. This is available for a cost of £25 per logo – you are able to keep a copy of this logo.
