About Us

For the love of horses - a reliable partner with the highest product quality

HISTORY: After a long search for a reining felt pad in a special color, highest quality, fast delivery time and at a reasonable price, the company Horse&Art Bodensee, based on Lake Constance in Baden-Württemberg, was founded by Annette Arnheim in May 2021.

Starting with a shelf in the basement and a small product range of felt pads, today three warehouses ensure that over 50 different AlpenPad Western pad models can be ordered in the online shop and are ready for immediate delivery. Over 1300 customers across Europe ride AlpenPad products.

AlpenPad now stands for more than just western pads of excellent quality at fair prices. The range has been expanded to include further lines – such as show shirts and high-quality saddle girths. The products complement each other and can be optimally combined.

TRUST: Word quickly spread about the high quality of the products, the speed of order processing and the reliability of customer service and we were soon able to win Lars Nebel, our first trainer, as a partner. In addition to Lars, our partners now include Nicole Greb, Emanuel & Elias Ernst, Markus Bächle, Michael Jahncke, Katharina Schmitz and many more. Associations such as VFD Bayern and ARWA (Austrian Ranch Work Association) are also among our partners.

QUALITY: Product quality is our top priority and always forms the basis for our lines. The product must work for the horse and help the horse and rider to master everyday life healthily and with joy. Second is the modern and functional design. With the feedback from our partners and customers, we are constantly developing our range.
