Equipe Emporio

The incredibly popular and comprehensive range of top quality Jumping, Dressage and Endurance saddles from the Italian saddlemakers SelleriaEquipe, or sometimes called EquipeSelleria, has radidly become a top seller worldwide in 2012/2013.

We are especially keen on their 'Emporio' range, with all models built on a superb tree described by Equipe as a " synthetic saddle tree made out of "INTELLIFIBERS", a composite-structure material that offers striking flexibility" .  The Emporio range is the 'base range' from Equipe(!), makingEquipe Emporio Monoflap dressage saddle these very affordable but excellent quality saddles.

The Equipe Emporio Monoflap Dressage became immensely popular in 2012 after Charlotte Dujardin won the Dressage Gold Medal at the London 2012 Olympics, riding this saddle, and other Olympic riders, including Great Britain's Ben Maher, also rode in an Equipe saddle. So in 2013 the riding world has taken great note of this Italian brand, and demand is high.

The Dressage Emporio is offered in 2 styles, the most popular of which appears to be the Monoflap version, as used at the 2012 Olympics, but a more traditional double-flap version is also available.  The Monoflap gives the ultimate in close-contact for the rider's legs.

The Emporio Jumping is a truly close-contact saddle, having a latex foam-filled panel which is  smooth, lightweight and maintenance free.  We see from Equipe's Warranty information that all the synthetic and the E-Carbon saddletrees, which include all Emporio models, have a lifetime guarantee. The Emporio saddletree provides a flat seat, and is fitted with jumping blocks front and rear.
"Only prime choice natural calfskin, drum-tanned in pure aniline, and vegetable-Equipe Emporio jumping saddletanned premium leather are selected for the manufacture of Equipe saddles and accessories" say Equipe Selleria in their promotional material ...which clearly shows the lengths the manufacturer goes to in order to offer a great product, but at an equally great price.

Although the Emporio seems to be Equipe's top selling range, we have found the latest E-Carbon models also very popular.

LATEST NEWS:  Equipe's EK-26 Jumping model and Viktoria Dressage model were both being ridden by Gold and Silver Medal winning International riders at the 2013 FEI European Championships in Denmark. The Equipe E-Carbon composite saddletree combines ultimate strength with flexibility. Success upon success for this great European saddlemaker!
