The Polished Rider began with Sarah Meyer—THE Polished Rider herself—and her love affair with the elegance of equestrianism. An accomplished horsewoman with an eye for detail, Sarah was frustrated by her lack of choice in beautiful, yet practical riding clothes that would elevate her look and highlight her skill in the ring.
So Sarah set out to solve the problem—not just for herself, but for her fellow riders, and for women enthralled with the time-honored look of equestrian chic.
The Polished Rider is the only choice for modern women with classic taste. From boots to jodhpurs, jackets to jewelry, Sarah hand-selects pieces inspired by classic equestrian style. Whether you ride horses or want simply to express your inner equestrianista, ours is the wardrobe of champions.
The Polished Rider
"I'm not quite sure what came first -- my love of horses or my love of fashion, however, both have shaped my life in more ways than I can count. At the age of 7, I received my first horse, Napoleon, a beautiful, gray pony with a sweet, but spunky demeanor. Let’s just say I feel he found joy in attempting to throw me off a time or two. His attitude on life remained a prominent theme in mine, helping shape the type of brand I’d soon create.
Not long after graduating from Texas A&M University with a major in communications and journalism, I realized that my heart was in fashion and my soul was in riding, rather than writing.
That's when The Polished Rider was born. Ever since, I've strived to create a brand that allows customers a chance to feel fashionable and confident on and off the horse, in and out of the arena." - The Polished Rider.
