In America in 1993, two ladies set out to create riding footwear that was not stiff, heavy or hard on the feet. They got together with some top footwear engineers and designers and set out to create the world's most technical, innovative, performance riding boot for riders.
Today, Ariat is America's number one equestrian performance footwear brand and is also internationally recognised in Europe and throughout the world as a leading equestrian brand.
Ariat Boot Story
Ariat were the first to bring athletic shoe technology to the riding boots market. They tested the prototype riding boot with professional riders from all equestrian disciplines. Another development was specific riding boots and Ariat shoes for women, with advanced technology in both the English and Western equestrian footwear market.

Some of their technical introductions to the equestrian public are
- Advanced Torque Stability (ATS) Technology
- Hexcel cushioning for shock absorption whilst riding or walking.
- Cobalt technology for an even higher level of superb support, cushioning and stability in their footwear.
- Their breakthrough Cobalt XR, Cobalt Quantum and Cobalt VX technology to support the foot’s natural motion and give optimum stability, flexion and cushioning.
Continuing their innovative design path, Ariat introduced riding boots and riding footwear with the British and European market in mind. This included long riding boots, paddock boots, yard boots and half chaps.
Ariat wellies have also provided even more choice in country footwear. A welly is a necessity for warm, dry feet in extreme conditions, though style and comfort is certainly not forgotten by Ariat designers.
Ariat Country Clothing
With the huge success of Ariat footwear, it was an obvious choice to expand into both performance equestrian clothing and technical country wear.
Firstly Ariat launched their equestrian apparel with technical riding shirts and riding breeches for that perfect fit and feel. A later addition was technical jackets for equestrian and country lifestyle wear that were innovative and designed with the user in mind!
The gilets and sweatshirts from Ariat also provide wonderful choice for those times when country wear clothing is a must. In the arena - training, in the yard - working, out at events - watching or simply enjoying downtime with friends.
Ariat continues to support the equestrian world by sponsoring riders across the disciplines and brings ever more technically impressive and innovative products forward into the marketplace for the benefit of riders and country lovers alike.
