Equiline is Italy’s leading manufacturer of accessories and clothing for the equestrian world, established in the early 80’s on the initiative of Paolo Marchetto,The Equiline brand stemmed from the riding passion of its creator as well as his attachment to his horses. Marchetto started by creating a unique saddle pad which is made from natural and highly-breathable fibres (ACS System) and which feature an integrated shock-absorbing system.
Over the years, the experience, knowledge and research into textile fibres led Equiline to develop its own line of technical riding wear. The company’s verve for innovation encouraged focused investment in the areas of research and development, marketing and communication. This has resulted in Equiline developing its own lines of mens, womens and childrens clothing, and now with a complete line of accessories for horses including innovative and highly technical Jumping and Dressage saddles, bridlework and titanium stirrups and lorinery.
