English Riding Apparel


JPC has launched the winning design from the 8-13 years category of its successful Young Rider Design-a-Breech Competition held last year. Annie Kozlowski's winning entry was a jodhpur with a strip of fabric mesh down the outer side of the legs to keep the rider cool by allowing easy air circulation.

Launched under the TuffRider brand, Annie air-conditioned jodhpurs are the answer to a kids dream. Made in a cool and lightweight Aerocool fabric, these low rise jodhpurs have super-stretch, highly ventilated moisture wicking polyester fabric side panels for enhanced breath ability. The perfect warm weather jodhpurs, Annie air-conditioned jodhpurs come with a side zip for added comfort and styling.

Annie Kozlowski was invited to the February 2006 Atlantic City show and spent time at the JPC Equestrian booth, getting a feel of the equestrian business world. The press in her hometown of Port Republic, NJ, covered her winning achievement and made her into a local celebrity.

"We are delighted to be able to convert a winning concept into a manufactured product", says Varun 'Timmy' Sharma, President, JPC Equestrian Inc.

- Michele Powers, Co-founder of Dover Saddlery, USA.

The winners in the 14-18 years category were:
