Nowadays, the name Prestige Italia immediately evokes images of innovative saddles; but that was not always the case. When this business was started in 1974 under the brand name Appaloosa, the most renowned saddle makers were from Germany. Italy had yet to establish a reputation in this arena. But thanks to the passion of the Stocchetti-Rasia family for the equestrian world, the rebranded Prestige Italia company challenged existing concepts and saddle making techniques. To this day Prestige Italia continues to introduce unique saddles that enhance the well-being of horse and rider.
