Our Story


A lifelong equestrian, Anna launched The PRIDE Equestrian in August 2022 after realizing there was but no frank discussion, support, or acknowledgement of LGBTQ+ equestrians as a whole within the equestrian community.


She felt inspired to create this space for everyone who wanted to show their pride as both a LGBTQ+ individual and their love for horses. LGBTQ+ equestrians had no way to express their pride as both equestrians and members of the LGBTQ+ community for not just the month of June but year-round. So in 2019 as a halfway out-of-the-closet freshman in college she began saving money to someday start a business that would support the interests of the LGBTQ+ equestrian community.


Fast forward to summer 2022 after realizing that continuing to delay on an idea as positive and impactful as this one was foolish. Anna took a leap of faith and launched The PRIDE Equestrian with only four initial products including a basic tee-shirt, two different sweatshirts, and a tank top. Now in less than 6 months, The PRIDE Equestrian has added nearly 30 products, most of which were created in collaboration with other small businesses, all for LGBTQ+ equestrians and their allies with a majority of products for horses.


While the primary goal of The PRIDE Equestrian is offering pride apparel, Anna also wanted to find a way to address of the lack of education surrounding LGBTQ+ issues and general knowledge. So, she created a social media segment called Factual Fridays with educational tidbits on important issues for the LGBTQ+ community and the equestrian community. This business that bridges both the LGBTQ+ community and the equestrian community is why support from both communities is vitally important to The PRIDE Equestrian because of the specific niche within both communities that it fills.
