Equestrian Imports is one of the most highly respected retailers of top-quality European saddles and saddle accessories in the United States today.
Owner Ann Forrest, a native of Scotland, has spent more than 30 years in the horse industry as both award-winning rider and entrepreneur. Growing up on a 300-acre farm partially dedicated to equestrian sport, Ann rode competitively on the Scottish Show Jumping Circuit achieving high levels of success. Later discovering her talent for dressage, Ann concentrated her riding efforts to reach FEI levels.
After relocating to the USA in 1983, Ann rose to Grand Prix status and built Centerline Farm, a full-service dressage training facility, which she operated from 1986 to 1995.
Simultaneously, Ann established Equestrian Imports to import, fit, and sell top-quality saddles and saddle accessories from Europe. The company was so successful that Ann discontinued her training facility to focus full-time on finding and fitting the best equipment for her clients. In a short time, Ann had to begin the process of hand-picking and personally training a staff to handle the growing volume of business.
Ann’s innate talents as a rider, trainer, saddle fitter, and business woman in combination with her many years of technical training and practical experience continue to propel Equestrian Imports forward as a leader in sales and service of equestrian equipment.
