In 2011, my mother, Emily, and I embarked on a journey of passion and creativity, establishing Padded Ponies as a small business on Etsy. As skilled artisans and fervent horse lovers, we handcrafted every item with love and dedication, sharing our creations with fellow equestrians around the world.
Starting with unique and high-quality saddle pads, we carved a niche for ourselves by offering custom-made products that celebrate individuality. Our personalized approach allowed us to connect with our customers on a deeper level, understanding their unique preferences and tailoring each piece to perfection.
As the years passed, our dedication to innovation drove us to expand our product range, adding saddle covers, stirrup covers, bags, bonnets, and more. Our commitment to inclusivity led us to create an LGBTQ+ line, ensuring that our products resonate with all horse lovers, irrespective of their diverse backgrounds or identities.
The unwavering support of our loyal customers and the word-of-mouth recommendations helped Padded Ponies transcend boundaries, becoming a global brand that caters to equestrians worldwide. In 2018, I took the reins and opened our own website, propelling our business to new heights while staying true to our core values.
With over a decade of experience in both horses and sewing, we have refined our skills, consistently maintaining the same high standard of quality that defines Padded Ponies. Each item continues to be crafted with meticulous attention to detail, ensuring they meet the expectations of our discerning clientele.
The future of Padded Ponies is brimming with excitement and possibilities. As we grow, our commitment to creativity remains unyielding. We eagerly look forward to introducing new products, innovative designs, and embarking on thrilling adventures that celebrate the profound bond between humans and horses.
Padded Ponies isn't just a business; it's a heartfelt endeavor fueled by our love for horses and the joy they bring to our lives. Our mission to provide superior handmade equestrian gear while fostering inclusivity is at the heart of everything we do. The journey ahead is filled with the joy of pounding hoofbeats and the realization of dreams. We look forward to sharing this adventure with our valued customers and fellow horse lovers.
