years of craftsmanship

Welcome to Kieffer

For more than 170 years the name “Kieffer“ has stood for Bavarian craftsmanship.



Unfortunately, we have recently discovered that a batch of our EquiConnect saddle girths is faulty. On some girths, a cross seam was not sewn properly. As a result, the stability of the girth may not be sufficiently guaranteed under high loads. Rider safety is our top priority. We would therefore like to ask all owners of girths that may be affected by this recall to check their girths. If you find that your girth belongs to this batch, please contact us by email at info@kieffer.net – we will then send you a return label, replace the girth and give you a small token of our gratitude for the inconvenience.

Outstanding quality is what we demand of our products – hence this appeal. Just to make sure that we can replace all saddle girths from this batch, we ask for your co-operation now. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and support.

Kind regards,
Your Kieffer Team
