PolyPads Performer©- Designed by you for you

We have listened carefully to comments made by riders to create the next generation of back protectors for horses - the PI Associates/PolyPads® Performer©.

The Performer© cunningly combines innovative new design with the most popular features of PolyPads® best-selling Classic and Forma saddle pads. The end result, which has been extensively tested by international three-day event star Mary King, is a refined saddle pad, practical enough for everyday exercise yet outstandingly neat and stylish under the saddle for competition use.

" You asked for increased contact and feel so we have introduced non-slip, absorbent, cotton-rich towelling on the underside of each panel, which is thinner and softer but just as durable.
" You asked for a neater fit at the front of the saddle so we have finely tailored the Performer© to give it a Forma-style curved front, reducing bulk for an extra tidy fit.
" You wanted a higher fit under the pommel so we have give the Performer© the Forma's shaped spine which enables it to sit well above the withers during action.
" You wanted longer panels so we have given the Performer© extra length so that it provides a perfect fit under a dressage saddle and allows room for a sponsor's logo for the professional.
" We weren't prepared to compromise on back protection so we have given you a choice of Single© or Plus One© thickness under the saddle-bearing area to maintain maximum comfort.

Washable, durable, shock-absorbing and manufactured from only the best materials, the Performer© retains all the market leading qualities that riders have come to expect from PolyPads® products.

Polypads® Performer is available a wide range of colours and has a suggested retail price starting from £28.
