The Story of REDINGOTE
Co-Founder Connie DeMaio is a lifelong equestrian and a professional rider and trainer. She first conceptualized the quintessential equestrian coverall while enduring long, cold days of training at the barn where she worked, and while taking students to compete at horse shows. Connie needed a garment that would keep her warm and clean while spending hours outside in the winter, but could easily be shed when she needed to get on a horse and ride. She needed a coverall, but a coverall that could perform for her specific requirements and look good at the same time.
Co-Founder Allison Malenfant is a retail merchandising and product development expert who has spent her entire career in the active apparel industry, primarily developing SoulCycle’s lifestyle clothing line. She picked up horseback riding in her 20s and took her first lessons under REDINGOTE Co-Founder Connie DeMaio in Brooklyn, New York. Allison wanted to wear the relevant riding apparel brands to the barn, but struggled to find pieces that were fresh and on-trend. After watching the athleisure fashion trend explode in her own industry, she noticed that this trend had not reached the equestrian market, and saw an opportunity to introduce a new spin on traditional equestrian essentials.
We started REDINGOTE because we needed to simplify our lives
In 2017, Connie and Allison realized they are the perfect match.
Connie has a deep understanding of what a rider needs to perform well and comfortably, and knows what type of products and styles will appeal to her fellow equestrians.
Allison has her finger on the pulse of the active wear industry, and understands how to translate fashion trends into performance-driven products.
Connie and Allison decided to put their expertise together and hit the ground running with REDINGOTE’s debut product, the insulated winter coverall. They have since released a rain gear version of the coverall for all seasons, and a schooling collection that honors equestrian tradition while offering a brand new look.
Today, REDINGOTE pieces are worn nationwide by equestrian industry professionals like Connie, and weekend warriors like Allison.
Equestrian sports are steeped in tradition.
REDINGOTE honors that history with some modern day upgrades.
The word "redingote" derived from a French alteration of the English "riding coat". It was a long coat or greatcoat worn in the 18th century.
We reinvented the redingote with today's technical advancements and modern sensibilities for the 21st century equestrian.
“The Redingote jumpsuit is not just my solution for staying warm at the barn for everyday things, it is the most convenient winter wear I have seen at USEF, PHA, and USHJA shows as well! I stay completely clean inside the suite and can take it off (while wearing my tall boots) right before I have to get on and ride!”
