Harmony & Safety - Our Commitment in Therapeutic Riding
The foundation for a successful therapy is a relaxed horse and the safety of both rider and therapist. The knowledge and experience which has fed into the development Kieffer's equipment benefit the therapy itself and support the therapist; it also enables a safe performance and promotes a harmonious working relationship between man and horse.
Since about 1975, the Kieffer company has manufactured therapeutic riding saddles suitable for all kinds of therapy- and disability-related purposes, in close cooperation with doctors, therapists and carrier agencies. Whether for therapeutic applications or at the Paralympics – our saddles and the auxiliary equipment are carefully crafted top-quality products aimed at providing support where it is needed. For the welfare and pleasure of the rider – just as for the horse, which is by nature the special focus of our company.
