In 1982, the company founder and owner Jarda Soumar started producing climbing equipment, mainly for his friends-climbers.
In 1992, we started with our main domain, the manufacture of dog sledding harnesses. After 20 years of continuous partnership with the Czech and foreign leading mushers, we became the world leader in this field. In close co-operation with the leading mushers, we continue to improve our products, look for new materials and technologies.
Since 2002 we have been also focusing on production and sale of specialized horse riding equipment. Based on our experience acquired while manufacturing the dog harnesses that require special materials that are gentle to animal hair, we started developing specialized saddle padds and padded halters for horses.
Nowadays, our company „Manmat“ belongs to the biggest leading specialists for manufacture and sale of patented dog harness and specialized horse riding equipment. Our sales representatives sell genuine “ManMat” products worldwide, “from Alaska through New Zealand to South Africa”.
