Award-Winning Handcrafted Products
Equimero is a small but quality oriented BioThane products manufacturing company founded in February 2015. By working closely with clients and experts alike in the horse-training arena, we’ve developed an array of great products that combine all the talents and know-how of our experienced team. Saskia Rohn, a hippotherapy riding therapist, and Tina Meier, a horse trainer since 2010, know all the requirements needed to make an outstanding piece of riding equipment. The products are all developed in-house and have been awarded multiple prizes.
The material used, Biothane, has a leather-like structure combined with all the advantages of a synthetic fabric. Crafted in Germany, the products are available in more than 20 colors, very durable, super easy to care for, and cause no chafing. All products are individually personalizable, ie: with the name of your four-legged friend, a telephone number, or even a company logo.
Well-known instructors, therapists, and influencers of the domestic and foreign riding sport scene work with products from Equimero®.
All of our one-of-a-kind products are handmade with care to the specifications of each of our customers. The thread used in our products is extremely durable and sewn with a free-arm sewing machine. That means that each piece, a noseband for example, can be preformed anatomically with no need to pre-fit it to the horse.
BioThane consists of polyester webbing that is covered with a layer of TPU. It resembles leather but is considerably more durable and 100% waterproof.
