after we launched the recycled base layers in 2020, we have been commited to our mission of creating a better world for you and your horse.
the concept of Equipad was started in 2015 in Brisbane, Australia. founded by life-long equestrian, Katie-lea Quigley (hi 👋) out of my childhood bedroom.
we started by creating saddle pads with a point of difference. our initial drop included our limited edition fluffly lined pad closely followed by our beach collection
By choosing the right shipment options we are able to reduce our carbon footprint and for our domestic orders, we completelty offset the carbon on every order. We're aiming to be carbon neutral by 2026.
we use real riders
where possible, we will always opt to use real equestrians in our photoshoots and content.
here for everyone
we're always working to continue to represent diversity across our imagery, socials and campaigns.
we never judge
we beleive the more diversity in the sport of equestrian, the better.
for the community
we're committed to continually providing free and budget events for local equestrian communities.
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.
♻ sustainable horse & rider wear
recycled base layers
our recycled base layers are made from 78% recycled nylon. made from an italian textile that utilised econyl, a nylon thread that's created utilising abandoned "ghost" fishing nets along with other industrial waste such as tulle and carpet fluff.
recycled saddle pads
in late 2022, we launched the latest addition of our recycled range, our recycled saddle pads. made using 38% recycled polyester with a lining that contains partially natural fibres with 24% bamboo charcoal.
to complete the set, we created the recycled breeches. made from 66% recycled nylon sourced from water bottle and other similar plastics. they're stretchy, breathable and posisbly your best pair of riding pants yet.
there's more to come
as Equipad continues to grow, we become even more committed to the creation of your favourite riding essentials in new eco-friendly, sustainable and earth-saving fabrics.
