Care of your NUUMED numnah or pad

Keep it clean. A dirty numnah or pad is bad news for a horse. NuuMed numnahs and pads can be washed daily - preferably in NuuWash – then dry them naturally, give them a shake and a quick brush with a body or dandy brush and away you go again!


Fitting or putting your NUUMED numnah or pad on

Sounds so simple, but it causes a lot of problems for horses – so just some quick guidelines:

  • Put the numnah onto the horse without the saddle, slightly in front of where the saddle will sit
  • Check the straps are not caught up
  • Check the offside is not caught up
  • Check the numnah is sitting centrally
  • Then put the saddle on the numnah and slide back into the correct position so the horse"s hair is lying flat in the right direction
  • Make sure the numnah sits up into the gullet at the front and the back of the saddle
  • Check the saddle is not sitting on the binding and that there is a clear margin of numnah or pad visible around the saddle
