About Arion

The idea of Arion was created by 2 lifelong French friends, competing at a professional level in both Jumping and Eventing.

Their passion and association for the industry brought the two ideas together: to bring an innovative premium product to amateur and professional riders, focused on the well being of the horse.

Our Mission
