Our mission at Equilly is to develop smart equestrian equipment that improves the welfare of horses and enables the best riding experience for the horse and the rider. As our first product, we are developing a smart saddle pad to measure the pressure distribution from the saddle and the rider, that will check the fit of the saddle on a consistent basis to eliminate unnecessary suffering and injuries for the horse. The pad can also be used as a training tool to improve the rider’s posture.
THE STORY OF EQUILLY
We started our journey in December of 2018 at Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship in Sweden, Gothenburg. Our CEO Alexandra who is a passionate rider and who was studying industrial engineering at the time saw how fast technology was advancing and changing industries but for some reason, none of these innovations were aimed towards horses.
The idea was born to use high-tech solutions to make the life of the horse and the rider easier. Our goal is to enhance the welfare of horses and to support both the rider and the horse to experience the highest performance without sacrificing health, fun or security. Our first product is a smart saddle pad that is designed to facilitate a dialog between the horse and the rider to find the right saddle that allows for a smooth ride.
