About Us 

Our mission is to maximise performance and reduce injury and discomfort, by applying science and technology to equestrian equipment. 


We are passionate equestrians.  We've ridden cross-country, gone hacking with friends, and trained and competed performance Quarter Horses in Texas.  Our CEO trained movie horses, rode track work, and came close to taking on a jockey apprenticeship before deciding to pursue business studies. 

Horses are athletes, and like any other athlete they require equipment that allows them to perform unrestricted by pain. By improving saddle technology, we can improve both performance and welfare. The two go hand in hand.
