Robert Lemieux became involved in the equestrian world as an event rider, competing at Olympic and World Championship level for Great Britain and later for Canada. He retired from professional riding after a serious injury but continued to compete up to Badminton 2004.
Robert and his wife Lisa started Horse Health in 2003, selling supplements from a van, and continued to grow the business until they launched the LeMieux brand in 2006 when they identified a need for quality lambskin saddle pads and set about making their own range. “We really wanted to make equipment that was innovative, well-made but above all, affordable.” This is the philosophy they still pursue today.
It was the production of Saddle Pads that really put LeMieux on the map. We set out to change the one-size-fits-all approach to saddle pads in the equestrian market, using 100% natural sustainable bamboo on the linings of our pads which has proven very effective in the management of heat and sweat wicking, combined with a high wither design for the best possible comfort for the horse.
We are a team of enthusiastic equestrians with the majority of the office and warehouse team owning horses – some of whom make an appearance in our photography from time to time! We want nothing more than to please our wonderful customers and your horses so please reach out and we will assist you in any matter we can. We love seeing your LeMieux photos as it makes everything we do have meaning, so keep tagging us!
