Kensington Protective Products, Inc., is a family owned and operated business. We began in 1954 as Custom Made Saddlery, Inc. known to for introducing the first Canvas Turnout Blanket, as well as the bareback pad to the equine industry.
My father discovered a fabric called Textilene, through his sister, my aunt. He felt the durability and inherent UV protection of the fabric could revolutionize the equine industry and it did. By the end of the decade, Custom Made Saddlery, Inc. was on its way to becoming the gold standard for fly control products, offering unparalleled durability and maximum UV protection to the equine industry.
With the Textilene‚ fabric in some eye catching plaids as our cornerstone, we launched Kensington Protective Products, Inc. in 2000.With a new design, image and, direction; we offered a collection of color coordinated equine protection products.Today, Kensington can dress a horse, tack, gear, barn, stall, and trailer with uncompromised durability and style.
