OWNER/FOUNDER - SANTA CLARITA, CA
Taylor has always had a great passion for helping four and two legged friends alike. Although her involvement in the hunter/jumper world stems from her pony days – she’s always involved herself in many aspects of the horse industry and beyond. From volunteering heavily in the SPCA in college to working with Junior Compton Posse, Taylor’s passion for giving back to her community is apparent. It was with this same passion and vigor Taylor began The Tried Equestrian in 2016. After dreaming of a way to build a more uncomplicated, economically and environmentally responsible avenue for equestrian retail, Taylor has turned the dream into a multi-faceted reality- including a store front, show pop-ups, e-commerce and an international presence. Taylor not only involves herself in the big-picture aspect of the company but also the day-to-day dealings of The Tried Equestrian. She handles all customer service, and loves getting to meet customers, vendors, and their horses! Feel free to reach out and say “hay!”
The Tried Team

PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHER - CASTAIC, CA
A hunter and equitation rider who pilots her 18HH French Warmblood, Gunner, around is TTE's main product photographer. She's loving learning more about the wide variety of brands carried and how to *REALLY* use that camera on an iPhone!
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER - LOS ANGELES, CA
A Liberal Arts student at LMU and a competitive "Big Eq" Rider, Haylee remotely manages TTE's Instagram and Facebook accounts, gracing the office every several weeks to stock up on pictures. She's always excited to be a beacon at SoCal shows for consignor drop-offs.
SALES ASSOCIATE- CANYON COUNTRY, CA

EMAIL MARKETING MANAGER - BUFFALO, NY
During the week, Kelli is an experienced Digital Marketing professional, and in her spare time she is TTE's marketing consultant. A staple in the horse community from a young age, Kelli is currently getting back to the show ring and spending her free time with her horse, Lexington.
SHIPPING - SANTA CLARITA, CA
An ex-homeland security agent and mom to a daughter, Jolie is the perfect fit to tackle TE's daily shipping of orders and consignment kits. It's been joked she has the "mom's touch" for perfectly wrapping everything up and making sure your products arrive in tip-top shape.
TOBY & PUDDLES

The true back bones of the store, Puddles and Toby put all of their efforts into being TTE's "greeting committee". They spend most of the day napping to make sure they're fresh for customers coming to shop in store!
