HKM - a long standing name in the world of equestrian sports dating back to the 1960s, HKM is a brand steeped in tradition. Klaus Engbers father, Hans Engers originally founded the company in 1967 with an initial focus on nappies. In addition to running the then nappy business and it's 30 employees, Hans Engbers and his wife managed a large riding school, which even today remains in the family. The combination of sewing production and a passion for horses eventually led to the manufacturing of textile items for both horse and rider including the first anti-sweat rugs for personal use. But, by the late 80's it became apparent the items were to good to keep only for personal use so products began to be manufactured for direct sales to end customers by mail order (nearly unheard of at the time). Fast forward to today and HKM is one of the largest equestrian manufacturers in the world with a number of sub-brands falling under it's name including Lauria Garrelli, Cavallino Marino and HKM Pro Team which all offer an incredible range of equestrian products and often dare to be different. HKM truly offer something for all riders and price categories.
