Founder of the company and inventor of the RubberGuard products. Simon has been dealing with horses since 1963 and has over the years been active in both warmblood breeding and equestrian sports.0
It was a personal event that back in 2006 gave Simon the idea to use conductive rubber and started a journey towards the invention of KickStop, RubberGuard Wire and RubberGuard Barrier.
“It all started with a horse that sustained injuries due to continuous kicking against the walls of its box. A not unknown phenomenon is that horses can be injured by the kick when staying in the box. Since there was no method to solve this problem, I decided to dedicate my time to finding a way to regulate the behavior of the horse. My goal was to find a method that - without compromising the horse's health, wellbeing or animal ethics rules - could remedy the self - harming behavior of the horse ”.
