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.
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.
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.
The le mieux brand is now synonymous with high quality and strong technical expertise throughout an extensive range of products across saddle pads, horse wear, riding wear and accessories. Product range developments launch on a seasonal basis and are renowned for the stunning collections of carefully considered colours to suit all horses and tastes.
