How it all began

Christel Helmstetter-Kaikhosrowi, the managing director of innoHorse, owned a successful dressage horse at the end of the 1990s, but unfortunately it suffered from headshaking syndrome. For many weeks of the year - mainly in spring - the horse was no longer rideable and it was impossible to even think about starting a tournament. Sunlight appeared to be the main trigger of the symptoms.

In search of a solution to this problem, Christel Helmstetter-Kaikhosrowi developed the first light protection mask. She was accompanied by Dr. Christian Bingold, specialist equine veterinarian from the Großostheim Horse Clinic, supported. Encouraged by the positive results when using this mask, Christel Helmstetter-Kaikhosrowi began selling this product shortly afterwards. The new development was very well received by veterinarians and horse owners. Through the exchange of experiences, additional light protection mask models and various nostril covers were created. With the “Nose Cover” Christel Helmstetter-Kaikhosrowi’s dressage horse achieved such a significant improvement that the headshaking symptoms completely disappeared while riding.

In 2005, innoHorse became a GmbH and the special range has been continuously expanded since then. All items are tested extensively before being sold, if necessary in collaboration with veterinarians. Today, innoHorse's own products are still manufactured locally in Germany. This means that special customer requests can also be met, such as: B. Custom-made products or repairs. In addition to numerous horse owners, innoHorse's customer base includes many renowned veterinarians and horse clinics as well as specialist retailers.

All innoHorse employees are active in equestrian sports and most of them are horse owners themselves. That's why we're particularly happy when we can once again help a horse with our products or simply contribute to the joy of this beautiful sport.
