Groupe Voltaire are pleased and proud to announce that Equisense has joined the Voltaire family.

The two companies share a common belief in innovation and sustainable development, which are core pillars of business development for both. Groupe Voltaire has, since its formation, made innovation a priority, as shown by the Blue Infinite saddle with its ultra-light “ActiveFlex” tree which adapts to the movements of the horse, and the GreenTech Forestier saddle, designed from recycled and renewable materials.

Collaboration between the two companies over recent years underlined their cultural compatibility and showed what is possible by aligning the technological capabilities and ambitions. This synergy now has the opportunity to develop into a partnership that enables unrestrained innovation fuelled by the brilliant imaginations of both teams.

Brice Goguet, the President and Founder of Groupe Voltaire said “The incredible human qualities of the Equisense team was a decisive reason behind this acquisition. Beyond this we are convinced that both the horse and rider are athletes, as an athlete the horse deserves training supported by scientific data to complement the feeling of the rider.”

Benoît Blancher, Founder of Equisense added “to accelerate our development and be ever more useful alongside our riders, joining an established structure like the Voltaire Group is a key step for Equisense. Equisense will remain an independent brand and that was important to us” 

By bringing Equisense into Groupe Voltaire, Goguet has integrated two companies who have innovation running through their DNA. This alignment will enable development across Groupe Voltaire and ensures that Groupe Voltaire remains at the forefront of connected saddle development. The Group will have the ability to develop new services, products and experiences for riders across their products whilst ensuring client privacy is protected. The only restraint on innovation is the limit of the these extraordinary imaginations.
