Year by year

Started out of our founders childhoods bedroom in 2015, Equipad was built from a passion for horses, stand-out saddle pads and design. In these early years it was all about finding our feet, making our products great and most importantly, growing our community, a community with riders who are still with us to this day.

A fast paced few years, we collabed with some of the biggest riders on the internet, made some our most iconic products but most importantly, the vision for Equipad and it's future was unfolding making the years to follow were some of our best yet.

Our "hiatus", between 2019 to 2020 we KNEW we wanted to create the best saddle pads but we also decided, why not make rider wear too? So we did just that, utilising the best, tested and eco-friendly materials, we create a diverse range of cohesive of horse and rider wear also known as our dusk & dawn, essentials and eco collections.

After taking time to visit factories, revise samples and get ready to release our products to the world, the world came to a halt, right when we were about to launch our first ever horse and rider collection. We took the first half of 2020 slow but come years end we released our new branding, products and vision to the world and we are still buzzing for how well receive it was.

After a chaotic 2020 and 2021, we stepped into 2022 and made it, hands-down, our best year yet. We released, what we didn't know at the time, would be some of our best sellers and in November, took them down to Equitana, Melbourne for our biggest trade event to date!

as apart of our initiative to create a better world for you and your horse, we're always working towards incorporating recycled textiles and materials into every product we make.
