Bringing together the traditional PolyPad comfort with a modern design, the Premier range is set to be one of the key PolyPads for 2020. The Premier range boasts a contoured shape that echoes the shape of the saddle to help reduce bulk and improve fit. This stylish design is ideal for both competition and training.
Three shapes are available - GP, Jump or Dressage. The Premier GP boasts a shaped spine and high wither that aids fit, allowing the PolyPad to sit neatly along the spine without bulk. The front contours gently away from the wither, with just enough of a forward cut to accommodate the knee roll. The shape is similar in the Premier Jump, with more of an exaggerated knee roll that helps to retain the shaped spine. The Dressage style is neat and professional, with a slight curve that sweeps away from the high wither.
PolyPads offer incredible comfort and pressure relief under saddle, without causing excess heat. The cotton outer and fine fill allows for air circulation to ensure your horse is able to work to their full potential.

Since our launch in 1988, PolyPads has set out to keep your horse’s comfort in mind. Every product that bears the PolyPads name has a mark of quality behind it, accompanied by the knowledge that it has been manufactured with the best quality materials and designed with care and attention.
At PolyPads, we know that horses change shapes for many reasons; be it muscle wastage, weight loss or gain, each horse will inevitably go through changes that cannot always be avoided. To cater for the ever-changing needs of the modern horse and rider, PolyPads pads are designed in varied thicknesses to support these changes. Whilst 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.
PolyPads are able to offer three thickness in our saddle pads to create the customised fit that each horse requires. Whilst many other have imitated our designs, few are able to match in both the quality of materials and the unparalleled attention to detail that we can offer. The three thicknesses cater for varying levels of fitness, age and workload of your horse. The thicknesses can be used as platforms to step up and down with as your horse changes shape; for the majority of the time, your horse will be best suited to the ‘Single’ thickness pads. The 'Single' refers to two pieces of fabric being sewn together to create a traditional PolyPad.
We offer the ‘PlusOne’ option within our pads too; 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' consists of the standard two pieces of material, plus an extra piece of material as an 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. The Doubler uses four peice of material; the standard outer two plus two inserts - this is also a popular choice for racing yards.
The multitude of options offered by PolyPads distinguish us as the champion in horse comfort under saddle. Why not explore our range to find a pad in your favourite colours, or make your mark with an embroidered design?
