After many years in and around the business, from working as a groom, a World Champion Equitation rider, a riding instructor and now as an owner and exhibitor, there was one thing that had remained prevalent to me after all these years. We lead the way in the equine industry, so why are our jodhpurs so far behind? From this, The American Jodhpur Company was founded. Our mission was to provide innovation to the equestrian and bring new, modern and refreshing value back into this traditional garment.
I focused on three key areas; Fabric, Design and Quality. I spent over a year in fabric development to get the right weave, blend, and durability, while maintaining a beautiful appearance and ensuring it was easy to care for. With the design I aligned myself with two equestrian pattern makers from the US and Italy with over 70 years experience. The goal was to incorporate features which addressed the most common complaints. When it came to quality, there was no decision to be made and there was never another consideration other than to have the jodhpurs crafted right here in the United States of America. It is with these fundamentals that I am very proud to bring you The American Jodhpur.
Our fabric is one of the three pillars of our product. It is custom milled to our specifications which yields an extremely classy and professional appearance, while keeping the strength and durability of an athletic garment. Our fabric is 4-way stretch, shrink-free, washable/dryable and does not wrinkle. Our fabric is beautiful and can be worn for academy, show ring, with silks or as an everyday work jodhpur. We mill this fabric from scratch so lead times to restock a particular color, size, or length can require some patience, but they are worth the wait!
We leveraged two pattern makers from Italy and America with over 70 years experience in equestrian garments. Their attention to detail is apparent not only in the fit, but also in the durability of the pattern after construction. Improvement of the pattern was first and foremost, providing additional features to the equestrian that add great value to the rider and the garment. Therefore, adding a thin, breathable athletic lining hidden in the knee patch helps prevent knee burn and bruising to the rider, as well as providing additional grip to enable the rider to have greater contact with the horse and the saddle.
I am most proud to say that our jodhpurs are expertly and skillfully hand crafted right here in the USA. This provides the exceptional and reputable high quality standards, which is the most complimented feature by our customers. They are extremely durable and last well beyond customer expectations. We stand behind our product 100% and our quality is second to none.
