We have always prided ourselves on sourcing high quality materials and Equus rubber is no different. Using the best UK-sourced rubber compound our rein grips are flexible, durable, and suitable for all climate conditions.

A quilted fabric is a three-layered fabric, all stitched together, with two cotton outer layers and a fibre based filling in the middle. Quilted fabric is used for the purpose of insulation and protection. The ability of quilting to come in a variety of different weights and thicknesses makes it a versatile material for many applications. The different thickness of the filling and the design of the stitching provide different levels of heat retention and create a durable fabric that retains its shape during use. Popular applications for quilted fabrics are outdoor jackets, handbags, bed linen and saddle pads.
