PolyPads can be used any way around or even reversed as there are no straps or loops to restrict you, giving maximum wear and added value. These classically simple saddle pads have been trusted and used since 1987.
The durable polycotton easy-care material with a fibre core will mould to the individual shape of the horse and to the fit of the saddle. It will adapt with ease to your horse’s changing shape over the year. This style is a great all-round choice for a variety of saddles.

- Will I need a Pony Classic or Standard Classic?
This largely depends on the length and style of your saddle, and the fit you want to achieve. The sizing differences are listed below, but as a general guide, the Pony Classic tends to fit ponies with a saddle size up to 15.5", and any larger saddles suiting the Standard Classic.
- Pony Classic - Pad length: 57cm (along the spine). Pad width: 84cm (side to side).
- Standard Classic - Pad length: 66cm (along the spine). Pad width: 94cm (side to side)
- 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 a different fit is required.
