Five AM comes far too early in the winter—but the horses don’t care. It’s breakfast time whether it is 40 or negative 40 degrees. Thankfully, Mountain Horse makes the trek from bed to stall that much easier. Mountain Horse is a premiere equestrian brand offering signature riding apparel, innovative outerwear, all-season footwear, and complementary accessories to riders of all disciplines.
In 1988, Mountain Horse founder Lars Sjöswärd created the world’s first winter-lined equestrian riding boots, called the “Winter Rider,” with his young daughter Catherina in mind. Lars wanted Catherina to be warm and comfortable while riding during Sweden’s harsh winters. Now sold around the world, the company is still based on the same solid foundation with fashion, function, comfort, durability, safety, and innovation as its trademark features.
Many things have changed over the 26 years since Mountain Horse has been outfitting equestrians, but there’s a lot that has remained the same. The entire family is involved in the business, still believing in the same philosophy: footwear and clothing must be stylish, of very high quality, and ultimately practical. Nothing is worse than slogging across a half-frozen, half-muck pasture with substandard boots.
Today’s customers are much more knowledgeable than they were when the business first started. Every year, Mountain Horse introduces two new collections, one in the spring and one in the autumn, to meet the demands of their customers. Each season’s collection includes a number of innovations in the form of built-in safety features, smart design solutions, and new, functional materials for clothing, outerwear, boots, and accessories to keep riders comfortable regardless of temperature.
Mountain Horse’s world famous quality is found in every design and detail of their products. They are renowned for cold weather riding gear, but also offer advanced three-season outerwear, all of which are designed to keep riders dry and comfortable.
