British four-star event rider, Will Rawlin has become the latest addition to #TeamEquitex, as brand ambassador for the revolutionary saddle pads.

Will, who runs a professional yard near Swindon, has been using the Equitex saddle pad throughout the 2022 season and has been consistently impressed with the support they offer the horses.  Working with horses from 4-year-old to 4* Will pays special attention to the impact different partners and products can make on his team.


 “I’m always looking to enhance my performance, whether that is through training or through the products and services we use.  Freedom of movement and comfort for my horses is one of the most important things.  I have my saddles checked regularly and pay particular attention to the way they fit us both, but I always thought there was more we could be doing to support their comfort in the saddle.

I came across Equitex and spent a long time looking at the research and asking questions about how they could work best for my horses.  The moment I tried one I felt the horse lift and take a bigger stride.  The difference was incredible.  They really do allow so much more freedom of movement and clearly aid the comfort of the horse, across their back.

The breathability of the fabrics and quality of the manufacture are also second to none.”

Will’s top 4* campaigner for this season is The Partner, a horse who is part of the Event Horse Owners Syndicate scheme and has already had success at Chatsworth and Burnham Market CCI4*S and Bramham CCI4*S.  The Partner will aim to take Will to his first Badminton CCI5* in 2023.

Amanda Fisher, exclusive distributor of Equitex Saddle Pads in the UK is thrilled to have Will onboard as an ambassador. “Will thoroughly researched our product, wanting to fully understand its impact on horse and rider. It was his focussed determination for his horses to have the best, both for their welfare and to give him a competitive edge, that interested us in having him as a brand ambassador. Will’s approach, commitment and attitude perfectly reflects the values of our brand.”

Equitex highlights the orthopaedic importance of a functional saddle pad and utilises technology and high-quality materials to deliver a saddle pad that protects the horse’s back from the pressures and impact of ridden work.  All components are hand cut and meticulously layered together to give high-performance pads that can endure hours of contact with horses.
