Equilibrium Products continues to champion for the welfare of horses by developing innovative products that really do make a difference to the wellbeing of horses throughout the world.
It all started when Timmy started frantically shaking his head during ridden work shortly after he turned 5 years old. This led to his owner Margaret Donnelly, now Managing Director of Equilibrium Products, designing the Net Relief Muzzle Net to help him.
Word got out about how the Muzzle Net helped Timmy and many other horses. Horse & Hound featured it and the phones started to go mad! Who would have thought one person trying to solve a problem with their horse could have such a large impact.
After the success of the Muzzle Net, the Field Relief Max prototype was exhibited at the BETA International Trade Show in 2001. The retailers queuing to order these two products was phenomenal!
After this, Margaret realised she had lots of product ideas – Timmy was a source of inspiration! His name was Cause for Optimism – which is some sort of divine inspiration. No matter what happens, you need to stay positive and keep trying to find a solution to move forwards.
Fast forward 20 years and we’re still here with our core message of ‘Making a difference to horses’ lives’ – inspired by Timmy and all the wonderful equines around us. We’re a team of horse owners who are passionate about our jobs, our company and our industry. Our brands cover a broad range of products, from horse boots, massage and magnetic products, all the way to turnout boots, fly masks and healthy horse treats and supplements.
While Timmy is no longer with us, he lived a great life until the grand age of 27, his legacy will live on and its through his courage and determination that so many other horses have been helped around the world.
We can’t wait to meet you all at The National Equine Show!
