Equi Tailor & Togz grew out of a friendship with a Magnetic Therapy practitioner, Debbie Dobson, who treated Colleen Rolland's horse. An avid horsewoman, Debbie had 25 years of experience with horses in various capacities.Debbie had definite ideas about what she wanted in the perfect breech. Colleen had a background in marketing. The pair chose two brands of breeches that met the criteria of comfort and durability- Equissentilas and Tropical Rider.
In July, 2003, Equi Tailor & Togz (ET&T) was born based on Colleen's skills in marketing and sales and Debbie's knowledge of horses. Their goal was to provide a range of fine, affordable, durable and comfortable breeches. The pair's personalized customer service would set them apart from retailers. Colleen and Debbie would go to barns and sell directly to riders and do fittings there, at their premises, or at clients' homes at no extra cost.
In time, Colleen became sole proprietor of the company. With over 25 years of experience in nation-wide marketing and sales, and over 12 years of horse ownership, Colleen prides herself on maintaining quality relationships with her clients and suppliers.
