Ariat Boot Co. History
Ariat Boot Co. was founded with a simple goal: to provide the most technologically advanced riding boots for the world's top equestrian athletes. From its beginnings, Ariat has been driven by design, innovation, & technology – all focused on delivering the highest quality Men's Ariat boots and Women's Ariat Boots possible. Today, Ariat Boot Co. is the leading performance footwear and apparel brand for equestrian athletes around the world. From show jumping to team penning, Ariat boots provide the foundation upon which world-class athletes work, play, ride, and compete. In 1990, Ariat co-founders Beth Cross and Pam Parker set out to create a new company and a new way of thinking about footwear for horseback riders. The two masterminds behind the Ariat legend knew that traditional riding boots weren't very well suited for horse riding. Riding boots were rigid, heavy, and took a toll on the feet. So Ariat assembled a group of top footwear engineers and designers, and set them on the task of creating the world's most technically innovative performance riding boot for horse riders. Ariat started by re-designing the boot outsole, rethinking the arch support system, and finally overhauling the thought process behind the "traditional" boot last shape and fit. While they were establishing the technology platform for Ariat boots, Ariat was also talking to scores of top horse riders who helped in the design and development of Ariat boots. Today, Ariat offers technology-packed horse riding boots, work boots, and stylish casual footwear.
