Equestrian Imports is one of the most highly respected retailers of top-quality European saddles and saddle accessories in the United States today.
Owner Ann Forrest, a native of Scotland, has spent more than 30 years in the horse industry as both award-winning rider and entrepreneur. Growing up on a 300-acre farm partially dedicated to equestrian sport, Ann rode competitively on the Scottish Show Jumping Circuit achieving high levels of success. Later discovering her talent for dressage, Ann concentrated her riding efforts to reach FEI levels.
After relocating to the USA in 1983, Ann rose to Grand Prix status and built Centerline Farm, a full-service dressage training facility, which she operated from 1986 to 1995.
Simultaneously, Ann established Equestrian Imports to import, fit, and sell top-quality saddles and saddle accessories from Europe. The company was so successful that Ann discontinued her training facility to focus full-time on finding and fitting the best equipment for her clients. In a short time, Ann had to begin the process of hand-picking and personally training a staff to handle the growing volume of business.
Ann’s innate talents as a rider, trainer, saddle fitter, and business woman in combination with her many years of technical training and practical experience continue to propel Equestrian Imports forward as a leader in sales and service of equestrian equipment.

Ann and Chris are absolutely awesome to work with! My saddle fitter (Kitt) recommended I reach out to them. She had some recommendations for my horse. I was lucky enough to find that they had a saddle coming in that was a strong possibility for what we needed. The Albion K2 Jump arrived and was beautiful! Smitten and I love it! I can't say enough good things about how great Ann and Chris were! They were both so responsive and understanding with dealing with my questions. I worked at Trumbull Mountain with Edie for years and the experience and customer service Ann and Chris provided was exactly like we used to strive to provide. Even the saddle trial instructions were like what we used to send to customers. Kind of a walk down memory lane for me. :)
Hi, Ann. I just wanted to let you know that our saddle fitting experience today with you was a great one. After seven saddles and years of delay in training, it was a great relief to have someone so attentive to the individual horse and her shape.
