"Devoucoux has been wholeheartedly dedicated to the horse and rider partnership since 1985. At Devoucoux, "Made in France" is part of our concern for quality.

Our saddles and accessories have become icons; thriving on elegance, accuracy, and comfort," said Max GRANET, Devoucoux Brand Director.
Devoucoux is a French-based saddlery company whose craftsmanship and innovation has been producing quality products since 1985. They are masters of their craft and strive to make all their saddles show the passion they have for the sport. By combining the latest technology, such as D3D panels and veg-tanning, with hand stitching, Devoucoux has created a saddle that is the epitome of comfort for both horse and rider. With innovation in mind, they focused heavily on making their products as eco-friendly as possible. They have a commitment to sustainability that they show by offering a saddle resale project where they take old or unused saddles and bring new life to them to cut down on wasted material. Recently, to expand their efforts, Devoucoux has developed the GT Option. A revolutionary saddle design that utilizes scrap and recycled cork as a way to cut down on CO2 emissions and promote animal welfare without sacrificing quality.
“The USEA is pleased to partner with Devoucoux again, who have been long-time supporters of eventing,” said USEA CEO, Rob Burk. “We look forward to seeing them at the AEC as both a sponsor and a vendor!”
