Our Story

A History of Quality and Service

KL Select began operations in 1987 as Kensington Leather Company. Over the next decade, the KL Select brand achieved nationwide recognition, offering the finest English leather goods with meticulous attention to detail. As the company grew, our offerings expanded to include many domestic and imported European equestrian products.

In 2004, KL Select introduced a new brand, Red Barn Bridlework, featuring a complete line of bridles, reins, strap goods and training aides – all made of exquisite English leather but moderately priced to serve the full ranges of the equestrian market.

In 2010, KL Select partnered with United Sportproducts Germany (USG) as their exclusive American distributor. USG, one of the fastest-growing equestrian companies in the world, provides products that align perfectly with KL Select’s long history of excellence. Fast forward seven years and today KL Select is the sole distributor of USG products in all of North America.

After two decades of importing high quality, premium riding breeches, in 2020 KL Select released our own breech, under our own brand name.  The KL Select Gabrielle Breech has taken the equestrian market by storm – popular amongst dressage, 3 day, and hunter/jumper riders alike.

Maintaining our high standard of excellence for more than four decades, KL Select continues to provide quality products to the equestrian market, superior customer service, and the finest leather available.  It is our mission to maintain these high standards and continue to serve your needs for decades to come.
