Kingsley Pads ®, innovative saddle pads with performance-boosting characteristics.

Breathable Structure​

Kingsley Pads® consist of breathable layers of a uniquely 3D-woven, moisture-wicking polyester fibre.​ The moisture-wicking feature has a dual action: it rapidly transfers sweat to the outer layer and dries it out quickly, so that it doesn’t saturate the pad.​

Shock Absorption​

The specific 3D-weaving technique creates an abundance of tiny shock absorbers throughout the entire pad, ​which leads to a significant reduction of peak pressures underneath the saddle.


Optimal pressure distribution

Kingsley Pads® are designed, engineered and assembled in such a way that ​a uniform and optimal pressure distribution is obtained.​


Lightweight Design​

Kingsley Pads® are made of lightweight performance fabrics. They are durable, breathable, non-absorbent yet truly light, ​making the horse-saddle interaction a smooth occurrence.​​

Kingsley’s Saddle Pads®

A pad and saddle cloth combined. All the benefits of the Kingsley Pads® are merged into one single saddle pad, with a thicker dual layered section underneath the saddle and single layered side panels. These Saddle pads are most suitable for dressage and show-jumping and come in black, brown or white.

Single-, double- and triple layered Kingsley Pads®

Cutting-edge saddle pads


Using the latest material innovations with performance-boosting characteristics, ​Kingsley created these pads to improve the overall fit and comfort for the horse under saddle.

Single Layer Kingsley Pad®​


A close contact pad, especially suited for showjumping, cross-country or hunting.​ Preferably used in combination with a perfectly fitted saddle, it further enhances the communication between the rider’s seat and the horse.​

Double Layer Kingsley Pad®​


​The double layer is suitable for any type of saddle and makes it perfectly fit various horsebacks.​ An essential pad for riders and stables who interchange saddles between horses.​​

Triple Layer Kingsley Pad®


​This pad is highly effective when horses are under saddle for an extensive amount of time.​ A staple amongst riding schools, endurance riders, sport stables, polo clubs etc.​

Kingsley Western Pad®​

​The western pad evens out pressure underneath the saddle and distributes the rider’s weight more evenly.​ The moisture-wicking fabric allows continuous ventilation, reduces heat build up and the capillary action of the pad rapidly disperses sweat onto the surface and allows it to evaporate.​ The pad dries remarkably quicker than the average wool felt counterparts and the overall weight of the Kingsley Western Pad® is significantly lower.​ Available in black, brown and white in 3 different sizes that fit most barrel-, roping-, reining-, cutting- and trail saddles.

Kingsley Ortho Pad®​

The Ortho pad has been developed to accommodate the hard to fit horseback.​ By leveling out the layers inside the pad it is possible to generate a perfect saddle fit.​ The standard version of the Kingsley Ortho pad® consists of a single layer in the front part, ​a double layer in the midsection and a triple layer in the back.​ Ortho pads can be custom made to meet specific needs of individual horses.​

Kingsley XL Pad®​

Our standard Kingsley Pad® in a larger version.​ This pad comes with all the original benefits and fits slightly larger saddles.​ Available in our 3 standard colors and in a double- and triple layer version.​​

Kingsley Training Racing Pad®​

A pad, with all the Kingsley Pad® assets, ​lightweight, shock absorbing, moisture-wicking and generating optimal pressure distribution,​ specifically designed for the racing industry.​

Kingsley Equalizer Race Pad®​

Specifically designed for racing​

A five-layered pad to maximally increase the horse’s comfort during a race.​ The middle layer contains a unique thermo-softening polymer that molds to the horse’s exact morphology,​ the outer layers consist of the signature Kingsley Pad® fabric with performance-boosting characteristics.​ Kingsley’s Equalizer pad, equipped with weight pockets, is lightweight, shock absorbing, moisture-wicking and generates optimal pressure distribution.

Easily moldable​

The thermo layer becomes soft and moldable after being heated with a hair dryer. ​When placed on the horse, topped with saddle and rider, the pad will solidify, into the exact shape of the horse’s back within approximately 20 minutes.​ This can be repeated over time to re-shape the pad if necessary.

Extensive pressure relief​

Due to the perfect molding of the pad to both horse and weighted saddle, the pressure distribution is exceptional.​ Add in the feather weight of the pad, just over a pound or half a kilogram, and you are set for extraordinary results.

Kingsley Tendon Boots®​

Thermoregulating

The lightweight, thermo-layered and moisture-wicking fabric allows continuous ventilation and prevents the tendons from overheating whilst exercising.​ The boots weigh roughly 200 grams and are low-maintenance; a subtle rinse will do to clean them,​ and given the fact that the signature fabric doesn’t absorb water, the boots dry almost instantly.

Individually moldable​

The thermo layer becomes soft and moldable after being heated with a hair dryer. ​After snug-fitting the tendon boots, they will solidify into the exact shape of the horse’s legs within approximately 20 minutes.​ This molding process can be repeated over time to re-shape them if necessary.​

To wrap or not to wrap​

​Regular boots and bandages can be challenging when it comes to heat build-up, weight, mobility restrictions and fit.​ Because of the thermoregulating, lightweight and moldable nature, Kingsley Tendon Boots® offer maximum protection without the negative impact of said challenges.
