  • Why Equestrian Collections?

     
    Why is it "Equestrian Collections?"
     
    Equestrian Collections got its name from the driving force of the creation of the web site... to bring the complete collections of the major brands in the equestrian industry to the riders.  

    The equestrian industry produces an amazing wealth of fabulously designed products that until the birth or Equestrian Collections, were never seen in their entirety in any one place.   Finding the products that a rider might see in a magazine ad or hear about from a friend was like piecing together a patchwork quilt!  Out would come a bunch of catalogs, lots of toll free numbers and hopefully a lot of patience!

    Equestrian Collections brought the major brands together... Ariat, TuffRider, Ovation, Mountain Horse, Goode Rider, WeatherBeeta, Dublin, Collegiate... hundreds of brands on one site... Collection by Collection!


  • Where is the Website?

    Many people ask us where we are?  Well, physically we are in Manassas, Virgina which IS outside of Washington, DC.  All of our Customer Care, Marketing and Fulfillment is done from here.

    Virtually, we are on servers at the best and most secure professional hosting company in the country.  Our servers are cared for, maintained and protected 24/7/365... so while Manassas may sleep, our website never does.


  • Why Collections?

    We offer a wide range of choices of how you would like to shop on Equestrian Collections.... by Gender, Department, Discipline and if you know the brand that you like to shop by - Collection.

    Most of us settle upon just a few brands that really work for us, that we get to know and trust.  They fit us, they fit our horse, they fit our budget ... so we have made it easy for you to shop that way.

    When we started Equestrian Collections, shopping by brand was unknown on equestrian sites.  We are flattered to say, that now it is almost a given!

    On Equestrian Collections, you can shop by Gender, Department, Collection or Discipline, then choose another way to narrow down to what you specifically need.  So you can choose to shop by Ladies, choose a category, choose a brand and a Discipline.. and you can get say all the Ladies breeches in the Ariat Collection that are focused on Dressage!  The possibilities are endless!

    Equestrian Collections is once again forging ahead to make shopping easier, more intuitive and ever more enjoyable for you.


  • Why Departments?

    We offer a wide range of choices of how you would like to shop on Equestrian Collections.... by Gender, Discipline, Collection... or if you know the kind of item you want, but want to see all the choices available across our brands... then you can shop by Department

    When we started Equestrian Collections, shopping by department was a sp,ewjat cride affair, with Ladies, Men's, Kidss' and Horse items often falling together in your list of choices.

    We changed all of that and we are flattered to say, that intelligent filtering is now almost a given on many equestrian sites. However, we were not satisfied with that and have just set another standard for others to follow and for you to enjoy.

    On our brand new system, you can shop by Gender, Department, Collection or Discipline, then choose another way to narrow down to what you specifically need.  So you can choose to shop by Ladies, choose a category, choose a brand and a Discipline.. and you can get say all the Ladies breeches in the Ariat Collection that are focused on Dressage!  The possibilities are endless!

    Equestrian Collections is once again forging ahead to make shopping easier, more intuative and enjoyable for you.


  • Why Ladies, Men & Young Riders?

    We offer a wide range of choices of how you would like to shop on Equestrian Collections.... Department, Discipline and if you know the brand that you like to shop by - Collection.  We have also always structured Equestrian Collections to keep products organized by Gender.. just like you are used to in department stores.

    We stretch that concept, so that you will never find horse boots with people boots, as well as letting you concentrate on just Ladies, Men or Young Riders.

    When we started Equestrian Collections, shopping by Gender was unknown on equestrian sites.  We are flattered to say, that now it is almost a given!

    On our brand new system, you can shop by Gender, Department, Collection or Discipline, then choose another way to narrow down to what you specifically need.  So you can choose to shop by Ladies, choose a category, choose a brand and a Discipline.. and you can get say all the Ladies breeches in the Ariat Collection that are focused on Dressage!  The possibilities are endless!

  • Why Disciplines?

    We offer a wide range of choices of how you would like to shop on Equestrian Collections.... by Gender, Department, Collections and if you want to stay within your particular Discipline, we do offer shopping by Discipline.

    On our brand new system, you can shop by Gender, Department, Collection or Discipline, then choose another way to narrow down to what you specifically need.  So you can choose to shop by Ladies, choose a category, choose a brand and a Discipline.. and you can get say all the Ladies breeches in the Ariat Collection that are focused on Dressage!  The possibilities are endless!

  • How do I use your navigation?

    Point and Click Away!

    Our new navigation is built to work for how YOU are searching for a particular product.   Everyone shops a supermarket or a department store in a different way.  The same when you come to Equestrian Collections.. you search differently than a friend might, and if you come a few times, you might search differently each time... it will all depend on what you know or don't know about the products that you are trying to find.

    Our objective is to make finding what you are looking for as fast, intuitive and interesting as we can.  We let you know where you are going, let you see where you have come from and where you are.

    We follow all the best and most current web practices, so our navigation follows protocols that you will be used to, so that you can find what you are looking for without thinking about the navigation itself... like driving a car... you don't think of the controls, just where you are going!





  • Why can I sort so many ways?

    We let you do it YOUR way!

    Like the title of the song, we believe that navigation should let you do it YOUR way.  You can use Gender, Departments, Discipline and Collections - or any combination of them to look at product selections and make good selections.

    Once you have a set of products that meet your needs, we even offer you more choices.. to sort and compare them by price, price range, popularity or name of the product.  Why?  Because you told us that is what you want!

    This level of sophistication was way beyond what we could do before, so we have spent 9 months designing a system that will let you dance the light fantastic!   We hope that you have a wonderful shopping experience shopping on the new Equestrian Collections web site.



  • Why are your images so big?

    Technology never stands still, and we are in the process of bringing you dynamic image management provided by the World's leader in the field - Scene 7 by Adobe. This year, you are likely to find some products with "Zoom" ability and some which still have our signature larger images. All our images are now served from extremely high powered Akamai servers by Scene 7, ensuring you the best and fastest loading product views that technology can buy.
     



     


  • Why so many images?

    We go the extra mile to give you lots of views of the products that we feature.  Sometimes it is the little detail that makes the difference and we want to make sure that you have seen all the things that interest us too.
     
    To that end, we have added new product display technology to the site so that you can select even more views that we have selected for you, plus the ability to zoom in close to see whatever interests you too.


  • Pricing

    We try our best! However to err is human!

    Not responsible for typographical errors.

    Prices subject to change without notice - but we do negotiate the very best prices that we can from all our vendors.
