Founder and President, Alexandra Cherubini, graduated from Bates College, and shortly after she sought a way to combine her career with her love of horseback riding. Within a few months, EquiFit’s first product was born: ShouldersBack™. ShouldersBack is now being marketed to riders as well as non-riders, through HSN and health and beauty outlets, and was featured in an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in recognition of its outstanding function and design. The success of the product encouraged Alexandra to develop a line of products for the equine and equestrian based on a material called T-Foam™, a shock-absorbing material that conforms to each horse’s body for a custom fit, every time.
The EquiFit product line has grown immensely over the company’s 15 years. A solid foundation of material intuition and product design is the heart of EquiFit’s success. From the T-Boot Series to the D-Teq Boot line, the T-Sport Wraps to the GelCompression Therapy line, EquiFit continues to raise expectations by pairing innovative designs with highly advanced materials.
By gradually releasing medical-grade mineral oil to moisturize and condition skin, GelTherapy helps prevent or relieve skin irritations. GelTherapy is used for humans and horses and is featured in GelSox™, GelSquares™ and GelBands. ™
Ionic Silver, a natural element, has been used for thousands of years for its ability to stave off viruses, molds and fungi. The power of silver is not new, but our applications are game changing. Silver is smart element that only releases its antimicrobials properties when microbes are present. It’s an element we respect and have adapted to benefit our horses. You can find AgSilver Power used in our StandingWraps™, SilverSox™ and ImpacTeq Bandage Liners as well as our entire AgSilver line of shampoos, talcs, sprays, balms and more.
Originally invented by NASA, and currently used in hospitals, wheelchairs and athletic equipment, T-Foam Technology provides protection, support, comfort, and a custom fit. This shock-absorbing material reacts to body pressure and heat allowing it to conform for a custom fit, every time it’s used.
It is our love of horses, as well as our experience in the ring, in the barn and on the road that drives every idea and influences every decision we make. But we also see the big picture, as we are the trainers, grooms, managers and owners as well. We know exactly what’s at stake.
We believe in innovation. We are constantly seeking new ideas, technology and ingenuity. We continuously adapt premium innovations in healthcare and fitness and translate them for our horses and riders.
In this sport, we all share a love for the outdoors. At EquiFit, we do our part to protect the planet by always making environmentally conscience choices. Wherever possible, we minimize packaging and opt for natural solutions.
We’re committed advocates and fans. We promise to honor the riders, the horses, and the integrity of our sport. It is our mission and our passion to develop and produce products of the highest quality that will help horses and riders succeed at every level.
And we do it all right here at home. While our inspiration from the field comes from our riders, managers and grooms, we’re extremely proud that nearly every EquiFit product is conceived, prototyped and produced in Dedham, Massachusetts, USA. The real work gets done by our team of researchers, engineers, designers, and skilled craftsmen and women. Together we produce products that you can trust. When you buy EquiFit, you can rest assured your purchase is made with top-quality materials by highly skilled hands, in a fair and ethically sound working environment.
T-Foam absorbs 97% of shock and vibration upon impact, and offers 100% recovery before the next use. Its neoprene-free open-cell structure prevents overheating by self-ventilating which also helps control perspiration. T-Foam is used exclusively by EquiFit in a variety of our products including the T-Boot Series®, T-Foam Saddle Pads, Anatomical Girths, StandingWraps™ and our CurbChain™ Cover.
Classic leather styling engineered to defend. EverLeather is created with a matrix of nylon, polyester and microfiber, granting it phenomenal durability and strength. It’s resistant to scratches, abrasions, punctures and tears. Even with heavy use, EverLeather’s beautiful look and feel is preserved for years with easy cleaning and minimal maintenance. We utilize EverLeather throughout our catalog of products, including D-Teq™ and D-Teq Custom Boots, T-Boot Series, ImpacTeq™ Half Pad, CrownPad™ and more.
To help deliver the benefits of hot and cold therapies, we have developed a line of tools that make treatment simple and effective. Out GelCompression Therapy Line simplifies the application of hot/cold therapy by using GelPacks™ that adhere to an outer shell. Compression is conveniently controlled with a hand pump. IceAir® Cold Therapy Boots are the only ice boots on the market that also provide the benefit of air compression. Our TendonPak™ retains intense heat or cold to help treat accordingly and provides easy-to-adjust compression with its elastic bandages.
Cradle to Cradle
We’re also proud to display the Cradle to Cradle Certification on many of our AgSilver products. Cradle to Cradle is rewarding certification that means our products are designed, produced, packaged and used in an environmentally and socially responsible fashion.
