Here at The Comfy Horse Company we recommend Kerrits for their comfortable, technically capable easy-care fabrics. They are extremely stretchy, never lose their shape and last for years. We never ride in anything else, and once you have tried them we are sure you won’t either!

KERRITS’ ROOTS

Kerrits’ roots reach back to 1986, to the most intimate type of women’s active wear: bathing suits. Windsurfer Kerri Kent saw an opportunity to improve the fit and performance of swimsuits that didn’t stay put. With 50 dollars’ worth of fabric from the Jansen outlet store and the pursuit of designing more comfortable active wear for athletic women, she began making her own suits. Windsurfing friends stood for fitting after fitting. When the suits finally met quality standards, Kerri launched from her gear bag on the beach.

Within the year, Kerri opened a retail store, selling custom bathing suits and coordinating bike and active wear. Michele McAlpine brought her retail and merchandising background to the store as manager in 1991. The two loved the challenge of creating custom suits for all different types of bodies. Over the years, Kerri and Michele collected an in-depth library of data and experience about creating comfortable coverage for athletic women that remains the core of Kerrits today.

In 1991, The Oregonian wrote about Kerrits Activewear, followed by a piece in The New York Times. That story mentioned Kerri’s desire to make similar, sport-specific, flattering clothes for women who shared her other passion: horses. The CEO of Eisers, a leading equestrian company, read the article and asked her to design a line. With simple packs of carrot seeds as hangtags, Kerrits Performance Equestrian Apparel took root.

Fabrics and Technology
