Our Story

The original concept behind the Pro-Motion Equine™ product range was started by the late Mr Bill Garrett - Master Saddler, in the 1970's, with a saddle pad design and system to improve horse welfare. His daughter Julia continued the development, enhancing the system and formula with the help of Paola Fletcher and Lorraine Curtin-Blair. The concepts were developed further by the team and turned into products and Pro-Motion Equine™ was launched.

The business is now run by these women, all with one objective - to continually improve horse welfare, through alleviating hotspots and reducing saddle pressures.

"Our aim at Pro-Motion Equine™ is to develop a brand synonymous with technical equine excellence. Our products are unique to the market and are tailor-made in Somerset."
