Kate Taylor-Wheat *** Kep Helmets and Amerigo Saddles Review


KEP Italia helmets have been my helmet of choice for daily training and competing for many years. Safety is always front of mind, especially when riding horses that come to me with training issues, or the young ones that are fresh from the breakers. It’s great to know I can have high level safety, style and comfort, all in one helmet.

KEP now also gives you the ability to design your own helmet! You can step out in the competition arena in a helmet you know no one else will have on. I love my competition helmet which I designed down to the last detail.

AMERIGO - Vega Dressage Saddles

I have been training and competing my dressage horses in Amerigo Vega Dressage saddles for many years. I sit in a lot of different saddles when riding clients’ horses, but I always love getting back on my horses and into my Vega’s again!! I can highly recommend these saddles for a number of reasons:

1. They fit horses of different shapes and sizes so well;

2. They can be adjusted to fit your horse perfectly, which is great when riding young horses who change shape so much as they grow and develop in their work;

3. They are super comfy to ride in. I really love the close feel they give you on the horse.

4. They are really durable. I have had my saddles for many years and have spent many hours in them and they still look in great shape.
