The Ariat Story

Founded in 1990, Ariat is well known among riders of all disciplines for providing durable, stylish boots and apparel to suit every need from pleasure riding to schooling to showing. Ariat’s team of top footwear engineers and designers created the first best-selling Ariat tall riding boot in 1993. Since that time, the product line has expanded to include paddock boots, half chaps, outerwear, schooling and show attire, and Ariat has come to outfit equestrian athletes around the world—including Olympic gold medalists.

A number of performance technologies set Ariat footwear and apparel apart. Most notably, 4LR™ (Four Layer Rebound) entry-level footbed technology cushions and stabilizes the foot. Enhancing comfort for the mid-level footwear range, ATS® (Advanced Torque Stability) supports, cushions and reduces fatigue. Cobalt™ technology, created to match the demands of professional horsemen, combines cushioning with a composite fiber forked shank. Easily the most recognized Ariat technology among consumers, Ariat’s Duratread™ outsole resist barnyard acids and oils while providing traction, support and durability in the stirrup and out.

In Ariat’s riding clothing line, technologies to enhance comfort and fit of breeches include CCT™, tummy-trimming Core Control Technology™, and CFS™, the Calf Fit System designed to accommodate any leg shape without bulky closures. MMT™ (Moisture Movement Technology) offers perspiration management for active riders, pulling moisture away from the skin and moving it to the fabric’s outer surface for quick evaporation.
