About Us

Kensington is a family owned and operated business known for fashion-forward, high-quality equine products designed in the USA. We began in 1954 by introducing the first Canvas Turnout Blanket as well as the bareback pad to the equine industry. Since then, we’ve been protecting horses from the elements and saving equestrian aficionado time and money. We’re more than another “pretty face”, in fact innovations such as the patented Protective Sheet and the Bug Eye Mask have established Kensington as a leader in the equine apparel industry.

Our team of like-minded individuals share a strong passion for the equestrian lifestyle which reflects even in the smallest tasks we undertake. Our fabrics undergo a rigorous quality inspection here at our Southern California headquarters. From tear tests, to heat exposure; we examine all degrees of durability in order to ensure a quality product that is backed by a Lifetime Guarantee. With such a tight-knit group of employees and a deep understanding of the industry, we’re able to offer all our customers products with unparalleled craftsmanship. As a nationally recognized brand in the equine industry, our eyes are now set on the global stage.
