WE HELP YOU
WE GROW YOU
We are an expertise and innovation centre for the equestrian sports.
We operate in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines:
Showjumping, Dressage and Eventing.
We are in the industry together! Right here, at EquInnoLab, we research, we help create, we innovate and we sustain.
Our aim is to innovate the sport with sustainability in mind. That’s why we believe that sport is a priority and science is a means for progress.
Together with our team, we bring knowledge to the sport, innovate and focus on the performance of the horse and the rider.
The equestrian sport is a team sport where teams are made of two athletes. And everything we do is in service of the sport, involving breeding, raising, caring and keeping the horses.
LET’S WORK TOGETHER
