Ariat was founded with one simple objective -
to provide the most technologically advanced riding boots to the world's top equestrian athletes.
In 1990, Pam Parker and I set out to create a new company and a new way of thinking about footwear for riders. We realized that traditional riding boots, both English and Western weren't all that well suited for riding. They were stiff, heavy and hard on the feet.
So we 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 both English and Western riders. We started by re-designing the outsole, rethinking the arch support system and finally taking a hard look at the suitability of "traditional" last shape and fit.
While we were establishing the technology platform for Ariat boots, we were also talking to hundreds of top riders who helped in the design and development of the final product. In 1993, we shipped our first pair of boots.
Today, Ariat offers a full range of Western and English riding boots, work boots and casual footwear. Our products are sold around the world in over 3,000 retail outlets. Click on Where to Buy to find a dealer near you or call 1-800-899-8141 for more information.

Ariat boots cushion the foot while stabilizing the heel and arch, dramatically reducing fatigue and stress to feet, legs and the lower back.
