“I've always been super crazy passionate about horses...”
It was a run-of-the-mill Saturday at the school, and a new couple walked in for their first lesson.
Neither one had ever thrown a leg over a horse, but already, they were dressed to the nines in the most expensive equipment, gear, & clothes money could buy. I felt bad for them.
It was clear that some local store clerk had taken advantage of them. They didn’t need all that stuff. And actually, their riding experience was gonna be a lot harder because of all that gear.
It was then and there that I decided to open a shop where I could take care of riders like you in a way that this couple needed. A store that would answer any and every question you have about riding without talking down to you or making you feel dumb. A store that would offer you what you actually need, at a price point you’re comfortable with. And finally, a store where as soon as you walk in the door, you become a part of our community… our family.
Maryland Saddlery became exactly what I envisioned on that Saturday over 30 years ago. And I can tell you right now, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
