Saddle pad manufacturer PolyPads has bought tack company Libbys.

Libbys was launched in 1996 and has carved out a reputation for top-quality easy-care synthetic tack, equipment and dog leads.

Made in England from high-quality materials, the Libbys range includes webbing bridles, martingales and schooling aids, as well as the BETA Innovation Award-winning RS-tor safety aid.

PolyPads managing director Lee Buck said: “Libbys is a company that perfectly complements our existing ethos of British manufacturing.

“The range of webbing products instantly fits alongside our own well-established brand of saddle pads and accessories and both brands offer consumers a vast choice of colours and sizes, for a truly co-ordinated look.

Libbys products will now be made at our factory in Norfolk and we look forward to taking on this fresh challenge for 2011.”
