Innovative and decidedly chic, Voltaire Design specializes in upscale custom saddles. Recognizable by our blue striped gullet, Voltaire Design saddles are made in France with the finest French leathers and are infinitely customizable. Created in 2010 in the idyllic French town of Espelette, the brand opted to launch first in the United States. As sponsor of the Winter Equestrian Festival in 2011, Voltaire Design has become a huge success and is quickly becoming a must-have across the Atlantic. The Made in France promise, and technical aspects of our products quickly attracted some of the greatest American riders, including double Olympic champion Beezie Madden and top riders such as Darragh Kenny, Shane Sweetnam and Hope Glynn.
With its success in the U.S., the brand then conquered other major countries in the equestrian world such as Germany, England, and of course, France.
Voltaire Design's mission is to enable every rider to fully express their own potential. With the comfort and performance of the horse and rider as our main concern, we have made 'innovation' our motto in order to offer better products to help riders achieve their full potential.
Since each rider and horse is unique, we build custom products that give riders the best opportunity to reach their goals. It is in this light that Voltaire Design has created the first smart saddle in 2016. In addition to being the lightest we've ever created, the Blue Wing is the first ever saddle with technology considered beneficial for the the horse’s neurological system thanks to a revolutionary smart tree and panel system. With eco-friendly leather options offering infinite customization, it meets every possible need.
Blue Wing is also the first connected smart saddle allowing riders to measure and understand the performance of their horse on a daily basis.
To go further in responding to our customer’s needs, Voltaire Design considers our customers more than a simple client, we make our customers our inspiration, and before selling something, above all else, our goal is to understand you!
