Saddle Division is the result of the great sensitivity gained by the Equiline team thanks to the careful observation of riders on horseback and the continuous balance of elegance, strength and effort. The aesthetic ideal of their movements is inspiration that breathes life into masterpieces of craftsmanship and technique, saddles that create a special relationship and closeness between the rider and her horse. In Equiline we call it "A saddle for two".
Italian elegance and style are once more mixed with our artisan know-how, mindful and at the same time innovative, we have created four lines of saddles, dedicated to the equestrian disciplines of Jumping, Dressage, Hunter and Complete.
The Equiline accessories for horses are born from the know-how of important champions and from particular attention to the welfare of the horses. A careful search for the highest quality materials, shapes and technologies are the secret that makes the Equiline's line of leather accessories so refined and exclusive.
Equiline's saddles are thus born from the wise hands of our master craftsmen and women. Artisans implementing traditional Italian expertise to bring time- honoured signature to every saddle and custom uniqueness to every piece. Depth of experience and the expert ability to obtain the best from every leather hide, together with intricate attention to detail, blend to make an extraordinary difference in saddle design. Achieving the benefits of comfort, balance and performance for riders of every level comes from expert craftmanship, a perfect mix of the top raw materials, customizability and using Equiline's exclusive patented technologies.
In Equiline's Saddle Division, tradition and innovation meet to form new, high performance materials. Synthetic heat-sensitive fibres with memory, comforting gel, and high-strength rubber allow for an adaptive saddle. A perfect mix of materials, manufacturing knowledge, and a design endorsed by a team of professional veterinarians and osteopaths for the creation of a "saddle for two", combining respect for the horse and comfort for the rider.
The work of the craft masters is enhanced by using materials of excellent aesthetic and functional quality. Strictly Italian full-grain calf leather hides, oiled with natural tanning procedures, allows optimal grip for the rider. The exclusive vegetable leather tanning process uses natural tannins. The environmentally friendly process requires a very slow maturing time and results in very durable, yet supple hides. Vegetable tanning is the most classic, natural and ecological process available, and the only solution that gives Equiline hides specific characteristics, transforming every saddle into a unique treasure.
Each Equiline saddle is born from artisan know-how, high-quality, select leathers and innovative technologies, making it a highly durable product over time. To allow your saddle to preserve all its qualities over time, we recommend that you perform regular leather cleansing and nourishment treatments. The leather might suffer the effects of rain, humidity and the sun, with the risk of it drying out or cracking, so a few, simple actions will allow you to prevent its deterioration and thus extend its durability. Equiline recommends regular maintenance of the saddle using the Care Kit products in just a few quick steps.
LEATHER EMULSION Deep cleaning from previously used products, dust, sweat and dirt.
LEATHER OIL Deep nourishment of the leather and protection from external elements.
LEATHER POLISH Gives the saddle a healthy look.
We recommend using the sponges contained in the kit or, alternatively, a neutral and soft cloth.
The tree of the Equiline saddle is made of EQ-ecoelasticfiber, an original Equiline composite fiber. It is a flexible and stable material and allows the modification of the tree of the withers-mounted saddle. The soft leather used is oiled full grain calfskin, and comes from animals reared in freedom, so small scars or imperfections on the saddle are a guarantee of the product's authenticity. The leather used by Equiline is 100% Italian. Equiline guarantees the leather and its work for a period of 2 years under normal conditions of use. The tree is guaranteed for life. No guarantee is given for accidents, improper use or use of products not suitable for the type of leather.

Constant care of the leather with appropriate products is important in order to keep your saddle in an excellent condition for a long time.
