Saddle Division is the result of the great sensitivity developed by the Equiline team thanks to the careful observation of the riders on horseback and the continuous game of balance between elegance, strength and effort. From the aesthetic ideal of their movements, the inspiration that gives life to masterpieces of craftsmanship and technique, saddles that create a special relationship and closeness between the rider and his horse. At Equiline we define it as "A saddle for two".
The elegance and style of Made in Italy are once again mixed by our artisanal, expert and at the same time innovative know-how to give life to four lines of saddles, dedicated to the equestrian disciplines of Jumping, Dressage, Hunter and Eventing.
Equiline horse accessories are born from the know-how of important champions and from particular attention to the horse's well-being. Careful research into top quality materials, shapes and technologies are the secret that makes Equiline's line of leather accessories so refined and exclusive.
Equiline saddles are born like this, from the skilful gestures of their master craftsmen, standard-bearers of an entirely Italian know-how that "signs" each saddle and gives the added value of uniqueness to each product. From their experience, from the ability to get the best out of each leather, the perfection of detail, the combination of all those small details capable of making a big difference. From the raw material to the ability to shape each piece, from craftsmanship to the most advanced technologies, passing from the aesthetic value of details, to the pluses of comfort and performance of the exclusive Equiline patents.
In Equiline Saddle Division, tradition and innovation come together in new materials with high technological content: thermosensitive synthetic fibers with memory, gel pads and very high resistance rubbers for a collection with great performance. A perfect mix of materials and construction knowledge, a project obtained with the constant collaboration of a team of professional veterinarians and osteopaths for the creation of "a saddle for two", capable of combining respect for the horse and comfort for the rider.
The work of the master craftsmen is sublimated in the use of excellent quality, aesthetic and functional raw materials, all rigorously Made in Italy: soft full-grain calfskin, oiled, to guarantee optimal grip and greased leather, exclusively vegetable tanned, the result of patient processing obtained with the use of natural tannins. These are processes that require the slow passage of time, during which the raw hides are elevated to a durable and valuable material, with total respect for the environment. Vegetable tanning is the most classic, the most natural and ecological and is the only one capable of giving particular characteristics to the leather, of transforming each saddle into a unique piece.
Each Equiline saddle is born from the meeting between artisanal know-how, high quality of the chosen leathers and innovative technologies, becoming a highly durable product over time. To allow your saddle to maintain all its qualities over time, we recommend carrying out regular cleaning and nourishing treatments for the leather. The leather could suffer the effects of rain, humidity and sun, with the risk of drying out or cracking, which is why a few simple precautions will allow you to prevent its deterioration by extending its life cycle. Equiline recommends regular maintenance of the saddle using the Care Kit products in a few quick steps.
LEATHER EMULSION: Deep cleansing of previously used products, dust, sweat and dirt.
LEATHER OIL: Deep nourishment of the skin and protection from external influences.
LEATHER POLISH: Gives the saddle a healthy look.
We recommend using the sponges contained in the kit or, alternatively, a neutral, soft cloth.
The Equiline saddle frame is made of EQ-ecoelasticfiber, the original Equiline composite fibre. It is a flexible and stable material, and allows the arch of the withers to be modified when the saddle is mounted. The soft leather used is full-grain, oiled calfskin and comes from free-range animals, so small scratches, scars or imperfections on the saddle are a guarantee of the authenticity of the product. Both the leather and the hide used by Equiline are strictly of Italian production. Equiline guarantees the leather and its work for a period of 2 years under normal conditions of use. The frame is guaranteed for life. No guarantee is given for accidents, improper use or use of products not suitable for the type of leather. The warranty automatically expires in the event of tampering or work carried out by unauthorized saddlers. Parts subject to wear are not covered by the warranty. For your personal safety, we recommend periodic checking of the indicators and, if necessary, replacement. Constant care of the leather with suitable products is important for keeping your saddle in excellent condition for a long time.
All Equiline saddles are born equipped with Coreshield, IGS (Integrated Gel System) and, depending on the model, FGT (Flap Grip Technology) technologies; they can also be customized to best respond to the rider's needs for trim and riding style, respecting the morphology and well-being of the horse. Equiline saddles can be made to measure with particular attention to every detail: Seat size, depending on the rider's weight:; Opening of the withers, depending on the morphology of the horse; Length of the quarters, depending on the height of the rider; Projection of the districts, depending on the riding style; Choice of cushion padding type (T-Flex, Synthetic wool or Techno Air Panel); Availability of knuckles in different sizes; To make your saddle more exclusive, Equiline offers the possibility of customizing them in two different ways: by inserting the flag of your country (not available for all models) or with Swarowski crystal inserts to embellish the rear edge of the seat.
