Leading Italian saddlery brand Equipe and renowned horse boot manufacturer Veredus have announced a partnership with one of the country's most successful young show jumpers, Robert Murphy.

Fourteen-year-old Robert, who has been competing since he was nine, lives in Preston, Lancashire where he trains with his well-known show jumper father, Peter Murphy.


Although he is only young, Robert has clocked up some impressive wins, which includes securing the individual Gold medal at last year's Children's European Championships in Arezzo, where he was the only rider to jump six clear rounds.
The partnership with both Equipe and Veredus will ensure Robert's horses are kitted out with the latest saddles and accessories to support his rise through the ranks.
Robert comments: 'The saddles are fantastic. Not only do they look smart but they're so soft to ride in. They fit me and my horses comfortably. My dad has been trying to ride in them but I keep telling him they're mine!'
Simon Middleton, managing director at Zebra Products, the UK's exclusive distributor of Equipe and Veredus, says: 'We're thrilled to have Robert on board and it's great to hear his new kit is making a difference. We're sure he will follow in his father's successful footsteps and look forward to working with him.'
