About Us

Our Story...

Hello, Welcome to Equiderma. So glad you're here.

I’m Bethany Padgett, founder and CEO of Equiderma and For the Love of Dogs products. I’ve been an avid horse woman and devoted lover of animals all of my life. I owned and operated a respected equestrian center for dressage and hunter/jumper in central Florida. During that time, I founded a 501c3 rescue for all animals in need. That was twenty years ago and is where this amazing journey began.

Every day, I devoted myself to healing the animals in my care. Over time I became more and more frustrated with the grooming and skin care products available to me. Like many of you can most likely relate, I had a medicine cabinet filled with products that failed to deliver on their claims. Meanwhile there was an animal that continued to suffer from the lack of effective products.

With so many animals relying on me I finally had enough. Necessity truly was the mother of invention and I decided to make it my life’s mission to create products that performed quickly, effectively, predictably and most of all painlessly. Equiderma Skin Lotion was my first product, born for my own personal use in my barns. As fate would have it, there was a business there and at the urging of a great man of vision, Jonathon Greenlaw, our first manufacturer and my early mentor, Equiderma became a business.

In those early days, Equiderma quickly became the "go to" solution at our rescue and equestrian center.  I would often hear voices ringing out, "Hey Bethany, where's your blue stuff?".

Since that time Equiderma has grown in product line and ethos and I’ve found my life’s purpose and passion along the way.  I am now able to help animals on a much broader scale.  Words cannot fully express how rewarding this is. The onus for each product was a particular animal in my care.  I will always remember them, and am grateful for this beautiful business they helped me create.

Each and every one of our products has been carefully and intelligently formulated to deliver superior performance for a specific purpose. They are the absolute best equine grooming products on the market. Period. I would happily put my products up against any other like product with certainty they would outperform.  Helping you become a better caretaker is at the core of everything we do.

In the past you didn't have many effective solutions when dealing with skin issues, wounds, insect bites, sunburn, sheath cleansing, mane, tail and coat care but now you do. The "old and tired" ways are just that, "old and tired" and comparatively ineffective. With Equiderma you’ll find new and incredibly effective ways of caring for your horse. I hope you'll join me in this grooming and skin care revolution.

We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee, so you can shop with confidence. If anything you purchase fails to meet your expectations in any way, just let us know and we’ll refund your money right away. No hassle, no hoops, no kidding.

With Honor and Gratitude,



Our Mission...

"Equiderma is more than just a business.  It’s an opportunity to help an animal.  It’s about compassion.  It’s a way of connecting with people and helping them with the animals they love.  It’s about providing effective, reliable solutions.  They say that all products are the same, but we say different."

"Equiderma may not be able to solve all the world’s problems, but when it comes to making a difference in your horse’s care, there isn’t much it can’t do.  It’s about worrying less and enjoying your horse more.  It’s about peace of mind."

All Things Bright and Beautiful
