Heinz Pollay (4 February 1908 in Köslin, Pomerania - 14 May 1979) was a German (later West German) horse rider who competed in dressage from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. Competing in two Summer Olympics, he won two golds (Dressage individual and Dressage team: both 1936) and one bronze (Dressage team: 1952).

Pollay took the Judge's Oath at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, the first for an official in the Summer Olympics to do so.
