Research & development for innovation
In a series of ground-breaking innovations, Equimade is taking equine equipment to the 21st century. And is forever changing the way we see these innovative products.
At the core of our R&D lies a deep understanding and respect for the biomechanics of the horse. All products are carefully designed to function in harmony with the horses’ organs, muscles, bones and ligaments.
Material research, development and application
We work with some of the world’s most innovative materials engineers. Creating technically advanced fabrics that meet our high requirements and standards. The choice of materials, buckles, zipper types, padding, type of seams, etc. is also based on knowledge of horses. The different conditions they live in. As well as expertise in technical textiles and other accessories.
We constantly keep ourselves in the forefront through collaboration with university, studies, laboratory tests and various field tests. But above all through cooperation with not only riders, also elite athletes in other sports.
Innovation & design
The ingenuity of Equimade lies in the combination of ground-breaking innovation based on the horses biomechanics, the clever design, leveraging materials completely new to the equine product industry and production governed by the most environmentally friendly regulations existing.
The products are designed to be comfortable and gentle for our high-performing and sensitive horses. While at the same time being easy to handle. An example of how we have designed our products for the horse is the Hocket® Front.
For many years we compared solutions. To find the optimal combination of softness to absorb the pressure from the horse’s natural heads-down position. As well as firmness in movement, and durability during harsh conditions.
A example of how we think about ease-of-handling. Products are designed so you should be able to handle it from one side and with only one hand. Like opening of the belly girths – it is easy with just one hand on the Hocket®.
True comfort for the withers.
Easy handling from the side.
Laboratory & field testing approval
We save the most critical step in our product development process until last. In addition to exposing our products, to a never-ending stream of laboratory tests. We also use the products on different sporthorses to learn how the products work in practice.
After receiving valuable feedback it is time for refining of each product. Until it gets approval from our craftsmen, as well as the equestrian and their sporthorses ensuring happy athletes.
If you need something that is truly good for horses and that’s produced in a sustainable good way – then you should chose Equimade products. We believe it is possible to make better, innovative and more durable products for beautiful sport horses without harming the environment.
Riders constantly challenging their limits has helped us to push the boundaries of design and technology. Equimade equestrians provide feedback on how to improve the performance of the sport horse. We are continuously expanding our database of e.g. sport horse measurements to calibrate the optimal fit. Let us know if you want to contribute!
Equimade always values your opinion – good can always be better. So when you think of an improvement, don’t hesitate to contact us.
