How to clean your Tacante INFI-KNIT saddle pad

Tacante tells you everything you need to know to clean and keep your saddle pad immaculate! Your INFI-KNIT saddle pad “Nature” grey will stay grey and white as on the first day and the other colours of the saddle pads will not fade. Have a look at our short video on how to clean your INFI-KNIT saddle pad and say goodbye to stains!


  1. Assess your Tacante saddle pad after several uses. It is time to clean it in order to optimise its breathability and the comfort of your horse.
  2. Prepare your cleaning equipment: latex gloves, a rubber brush with soft bristles, a household soap (Savon de Marseille), and washing powder with an eco-label if possible.
  3. Remove with the latex gloves and then with the rubber brush all the horse’s hair stuck in the saddle pad. To avoid damaging your Tacante saddle pad, don’t use a stiff-brush.
  4. Shake the INFI-KNIT saddle pad to remove the remaining horse’s hair and dust.
  5. Scrub the stains with a damp household soap (Savon de Marseille). For greasy stains don’t wet the fabric as the stains will become embedded.
  6. Wash the saddle pad with washing powder in the washing machine on a 30°C synthetics programme and a spin speed of up to 1400rpm. You can even mix colours!
  7. And leave the INFI-KNIT saddle pad to dry in the open air. It will be as clean as a new pin!


Firstly, the INFI-KNIT saddle pad is completely 3D knitted. Its knitted structure ensures optimum comfort for the back of your horse and prevents overheating during work. Thanks to its flexibility, it is possible to load several saddle clothes at the same time in your washing machine. The saddle pad is made of 30% recycled Newlife® polyester yarn.

Secondly, the saddle pad is machine-washable on a 30°C synthetics programme with a spin speed of up to 1400rpm. We recommend using a soft non-toxic and biodegradable fabric detergent, certified with a European eco-label preferably, and no fabric softener. The INFI-KNIT saddle pad dries in the open air. Do not tumble-dry Tacante saddle pad as you will burn the fibres.

Lastly, Tacante INFI-KNIT saddle pads are made in France. The mixed and dressage cuts make them suitable for dressage as well as for jumping or cross-country riding. Click here to buy an INFI-KNIT saddle pad, and here to match it with your INFI-KNIT ear-net!
