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 requirements.

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.

 Tiny Tots Balance Strap

Detachable balance straps for small hands to hold. Simply attaches to the "D" Rings on the front of the saddle pad by means of two small trigger clips.

Some Show Societies do not allow the use of handles in their classes, (please check the societies rules).

Fine Rolled English Leather in Havana or Black £16.00 Each.


Sure Grip Girths

Non Slip, padded, made to measure girths available in Brown or Black. Lined in a sponge like, breathable Neoprene to help keep the saddle in the correct position and help prevent any discomfort, girth galls, rubbing or pressure points.

This is a Dressage style girth, (with buckle guards to prevent pinching of the skin), and has British stainless steel roller buckles and pliable retaining keepers for the girth straps. £26.00

To ensure the correct length of girth, I require the measurement all the way around the pony where a girth or lunging roller normally lies, i.e. the circumference.




Faux Fleece Show Numnahs individually shaped for each size of Saddle Pad in soft lightweight faux fleece. Machine washable on a cool wash.

Brown or Black £19.00

Padded Numnahs are available in sizes, 14.5" Longer Panel and 14.5" XL (other sizes available to order). 3/4" internal wadding gives that little extra cushioning for the older rider. Machine Washable. Brown or Black £20.00

Hand stitched, quality English 3/4" wide Stirrup Leathers with British stainless steel buckles. Havana or Black.

Lead Rein £29.50  ~  First Ridden £31.50  ~   Junior £33.50  ~   Maids £35.50

(The rider's inside leg measurement ensures the correct length of leathers are ordered) 


Peacock Safety Stirrup Irons

Quality British Stainless Steel Safety Stirrup Irons. Leather tabs, and strong rubber loop which should be fitted to the outside edge of the Iron. Complete with black rubber treads. £28.95
