A love for her horse.
This was Barbara Chemoli’s initial inspiration.
First Barbara invented the innovative Body Bandage. This was followed by a succession of creations designed with horses’ well-being in mind and the introduction of bioceramic technology to promote microcirculation and provide cold-weather protection. Next LoveHorses designed a mesh fabric with the Airnet® system of air tunnels that aid heat dispersion in hot weather. All items are handcrafted exclusively in Italy. This is very important with Barbara placing a strong emphasis on local artisans so she can focus her care and attention to detail on every step of production.
Barbara also has a remarkable talent for matching the core concept of “well-being” with elegance and beauty in every single LoveHorses creation.
Love, passion, respect, research, innovation and elegance.

THE STORY BEHIND THE BODY BANDAGE
“I had to protect my horse and desperately needed to find a solution… but how?
It was a real problem… and then it suddenly occurred to me one day why don’t I wrap him. I bought some elasticated fabric that was 12 cm wide from the haberdashery and roughly sewed two pieces together to create a strip that was 24 cm wide. It was my first attempt… and a complete disaster.
Although tight enough under the girth, it wasn’t attached to anything and within a few minutes slid backwards along Arduy’s (my horse) body who started bucking his way around the sand school like a maniac!
But I didn’t despair and tried again the next day. I attached it to the martingale, but that wasn’t the ideal solution either.
Step by step and week by week I continued making alterations and searching high and low for the best materials and hardware to perfect my new product.
I eventually succeeded with excellent results; I’d finally created the “Body Bandage.”
As soon as Arduy wore the body bandage, his sores were protected by the stretchy fabric and healed up. I was over the moon because I could keep riding without being separated from my four-legged friend.
I’d finally achieved my first goal.”
