Saddle Pads

This is the only Suede Saddle Pad designed by me, Zoe Snape. Worn and tested by several of our own ponies in top level competition it is the only Suede Saddle pad I endorse. With over thirty years experience of breeding, showing and judging Shetland ponies the saddle design is the result of practical knowledge, personal experience, a genuine interest and passion for the ridden pony. Please do not hesitate contacting me regarding saddle fitting problems or to discuss your requiremen ts.

Please be aware of this when considering purchasing a Saddle Pad.



THE SUEDE SHETLAND SADDLE PAD designed specifically for the Shetland Pony.
A straight cut, attractive, non-slip, and well padded saddle. Ideal for the show ring, WHP's,  jumping, hunting or just hacking. Available in Havana Brown, Black or Chestnut.
The Saddle Pads are easily cleaned by a quick light steam and a soft brush. The saddles have stainless steel stirrup bars, a discreet knee roll and English leather girth straps. The saddle is sewn using driving harness quality thread and double stitched webbing internally - ensuring safety and years of use.


Five Sizes Available

14.5" With the Standard Panel. To fit ponies 35"- 38"

14.5" Large Panel The most popular size for the deeper bodied, standard Shetland 38"- 42"

15.5" "Up To Height" Shetland Ponies more popular than ever.The majority being schooled and shown by older riders, this pad offers the rider a more comfortable seat area, and a longer and wider leg panel. Like wise, the larger pony is often slightly longer in the back and deeper through the body so the 15.5" Saddle pad proportionally looks more balanced and enhances the overall picture.
