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 works 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. She picked up horseback riding in her 20s and took her first lessons under REDINGOTE Co-Founder Connie DeMaio in Brooklyn, New York. Connie and Allison discussed their ideas for specialized equestrian products and discovered a shared passion for bringing new concepts to the equestrian apparel market.
