Ece Equestrian Co. was founded by best friends Emily Thompson and Ellen Hart who grew up riding horses together. They found most equestrian attire had changed little since the 1800's - dry-cleanable only, non-breathable and non elastic - like playing tennis in a tuxedo. Inspired Emily and Ellen set their sights on creating a new clothing line that would blend fashion and athletic functionality for today's equestrian community. They commissioned top Manhattan pattern maker Ikuyo Ishitobi to design their innovtive fashions and searched the globe for the perfect technical fabric. In 2010, Ece Equestrian Co. launched its exclusive shirt line which has been extremely well received by everyday riders and world class Grand Prix professionals. Ece Equestrian Co. shirts provide comfort in extreme heat, elasticity without losing form, and are machine washable and quick-drying. Their signature pearl snaps add a touch of class. Ece Equestrian Co. apparel is versatile for any athletic sport and for everyday life.
