Numnahs

At Wroxham Saddlery you will find a comprehensive range of saddlepads and horse numnahs. Our collection features the latest styles from Lemieux, Nuumed, Prolite, Shires and more. There is sure to be the perfect choice to suit your saddle and your horse and at a great price.

If you are a new equestrian, you might be wondering what the difference is between a saddlepad and a numnah and which you should choose. These accessories fulfil similar functions but a numnah is more saddle shaped.

Protection

Both saddlepads and numnah’s protect your valuable saddle and your horse’s back. They soak up sweat which would otherwise damage your saddle’s leather whilst preventing the saddle from rubbing your horse and causing pressure sores. The shock absorbing qualities of saddelpads and numnahs also make life more comfortable for you and the padding will help you to achieve a good fit with your saddle.

Styles

Saddlepads and numnahs are available in a variety of colours and with different levels of padding to suit dressage riding, leisure riding and jumping. Natural fibres are more efficient at soaking up sweat but synthetic numnahs are easier to care for. You may require more than one saddlepad or numnah. Thinner styles are more suitable for the summer months but your horse could benefit from more insulation in the winter. It is also useful to have a spare on hand for when you are doing the washing!

The Name

The somewhat strange sounding word numnah is derived from the Urdu term namda. As with much equestrian terminology, the name originated in India. Although the term numnah is used regularly in the UK and Australia, it is rarely heard elsewhere.
