Price as reviewed:
Welcome to our group test of sweat-wicking GP saddle pads. All of the saddle pads in this group test have been put through their paces by Harriet Rimmer, who runs a livery, schooling and sales yard with a particular focus on hunting. Find out what she thought below
The HV Polo Hivano GP saddle pad is lightweight and breathable, featuring a Coolmax lining and mesh backline for increased airflow. The silicone print on the topside keeps the saddle in place and the pad also features a zip pocket for carrying your belongings.
Colours: Black or navy
The product looked lightweight, comfortable and well designed, especially with the zip pocket, which is very handy on a summers day to put your phone in.
Overview of performance
It did however perform well in test — it was very lightweight and flexible and added enough padding and cushioning. It washed very well and dried quickly.
Harriet’s likes and dislikes
I liked how lightweight and padded it was, but I would have preferred it to be slightly higher at the wither. It was more expensive than I expected.
Great design and performed well, but more expensive that I expected.
