The Advantages of Uppeal (formerly AppleSkin)

Harnessing the natural beauty of Uppeal, we create durable and eco-friendly horse harnesses. Here’s why Uppeal is a game-changer in equestrian gear: 

Sustainability: Uppeal is a byproduct of the apple juice industry, which would otherwise go to waste. By utilizing this material, we reduce waste and promote a circular economy.

Vegan and Cruelty-Free: Our harnesses are 100% vegan, ensuring no harm to animals. We are proud to offer cruelty-free alternatives that align with modern values.

Durability: Uppeal is remarkably durable and resilient, making it perfect for the rigors of equestrian activities. Your horse’s harness will withstand years of use without compromising quality.

Breathability: Uppeal is naturally breathable, allowing air circulation and preventing discomfort for your horse during extended rides.

Our Sustainable Production Process:

We are committed to sustainability at every stage of our production process:

 Material Sourcing: As manufacturers, we collaborate with environmentally-conscious production partners i.e. who specialize in upcycling apple juice waste into Uppeal.

No Tanning Process: We bypass the tanning process, thereby minimizing environmental impact by reducing chemical usage and conserving precious drinking water resources.

Artisan Craftsmanship: Our skilled artisans handcraft each harness with precision and care, ensuring quality and longevity.

Bio-Compostable Packaging: We use bio-compostable packaging materials to further reduce our environmental impact.

Benefits for Horses and Riders::

Our sustainable horse harnesses offer numerous benefits for both horses and riders:


Comfort: The breathable nature of Uppeal ensures that horses stay comfortable during long rides, reducing the risk of chafing or irritation.

Durability: Our harnesses are designed to last, providing riders with a reliable and long-lasting product.

Plant-based and Ethical: Riders can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that their gear is cruelty-free and aligned with their ethical values.

Eco-Conscious: Riders can take pride in using gear that actively contributes to a greener planet.
