Eques products

Eques saddles are designed and produced by the accomplished Danish Icelandic horse trainer and competitor Rasmus Møller Jensen. The saddles are designed to be used for all the daily needs of an Icelandic horse rider or trainer. Before he designed the Eques brand, Rasmus looked long and hard for a saddle with a wider seat than what was available on the market. In addition he was frustrated with the fact that most saddles had the tendency to perch too high above the horses withers. This led him to start his own saddle company, which has grown in popularity and success across Europe. Eques saddles have an adjustable tree width, which allows them to be fitted to the individual horse and fit the shoulders correctly. The trees are more supple than in other saddles allowing the saddle to form better to the back of the horse and enabling the horse to move freely without pressure points.

Rasmus has designed a saddle that impedes balance and movement as little as possible. The center of gravity (deepest point in the saddle seat) is in the middle and the saddle is designed to stay in equal contact with the horses back when the girth is tightened.

Of course, it is never possible to design a single saddle that will be the right fit for every horse and rider. Therefore, Rasmus has developed several different types of Eques saddles to fit the needs of a variety of horses and riders.

All Eques saddles are carefully produced with quality leather.

“The best saddle is not necessarily the most expensive, but the one that fits the horse and rider best.” – Rasmus Möller Jensen

EQUES SELLA PLUS

Eques Sella Plus is a wonderful and very popular saddle with good support for horse and rider. It is the best-selling saddle in Scandinavia currently as it fits most horses. Available are several types of the basic Eques Sella monoflap: The Sella Soft (bolstered with 3 mm latex in the flaps and seat for comfort) , the Sella double flap (inside stirrups) and the Sella Plus.

Characteristics of the Eques Sella Plus:

  • The tree has been flattened slightly which means it fits the majority of horses with a more flat topline
  • Quality leather (made out of soft calf skin) with a grip effect
  • Front riser effect that lifts the front of the saddle up and therefore archives the same influence as a rider pad
  • The shape of the bars of the saddle are designed for a wider surface to better distribute weight increasing the comfort of the horse
  • The bars are bolstered with three layers of latex

Similar to original Sella, the Eques Sella Plus is designed so the rider can be in close contact with the horse. It is a short monoflap saddle and the knee rolls are placed on the outside and give good support. The seat is an average depth. The 17″ saddle touches the horses back over a 44cm area.

The goal of this design is to have the rider be close to the horse but still offer the horse freedom of the spine and back. The design of the saddle, knee rolls, and seat combine to help promote a correct rider position.

All types of the Sella have a supple and adjustable tree. The Sella is bolstered in latex or alternatively wool flocking upon request. Available in three lengths (16,5″, 17″ and 17,5″).

EQUES LEVIS PLUS

The Eques Levis Plus is for the rider that emphasizes comfort and freedom of movement for the horse. Compared to the Sella Plus, the saddle seat is more flat in the Levis Plus as well as knee rolls can be adjusted up or down within minutes.

Characteristics of the Eques Sella Plus:

  • The tree is designed for flat-backed horses
  • Levis Plus is made out of soft leather (calf skin) that gives a better grip
  • The adjustable knee rolls are angled forward to give the riders leg more freedom
  • Saddle is designed specifically to allow for freedom of the horses shoulders
  • Increased 3 layered latex filling in the front that lifts the front of the saddle up and therefore achieves the same influence as a riser pad

The Levis Plus is a versatile and especially supple saddle for both the horse and rider. The close contact design allows the rider to have a good feel for the movements of the horse.

The Levis Plus comes with the Eques adjustable tree and is available in three lengths (16,5″, 17″ and 17,5″). Bolstered in latex or alternatively wool flocking upon request.
