Todhpurs started with a range of little boots for little feet. Riding boots made with toddlers and young children in mind. They have a front zip making them super easy for parents to put on wiggling toes. A padded sports insole for comfort, we all had vivid memories as children of the pain when dismounting our ponies and landing on thin rubber soles.
Created by three sisters Hannah, Jade and Pip who came up with the idea back in 2015 when Hannah (the eldest) had her child George.
Finding the perfect pony, Pixie, was easy, but finding the perfect boots for George was a near impossible challenge. No matter where we looked, there were no riding boots on the market for toddlers and young children that looked as good as regular children’s boots, or were not up to the standard we would want from our own boots.
We were fortunate enough to grow up with a Mother who had a passion and a love for anything with four legs and a tail. A passion which passed on to us all and took Hannah and Pip on to further education at Brooksby College, and Hartpury University to carry on their love for horses.
We have loved growing up horse riding, and we have all been involved in various equestrian activities, from show jumping, dressage, and polo and because of this we wanted any child who is learning to ride from a young age should have all they need to do so – that includes the perfect boots.
What started out as a bit of a dream soon started to turn into a reality with help from a family friend who put us in touch with our amazing suppliers. With endless challenges and changes we were finally presented with a boot we fell in love with.
With the help of amazing children’s footwear experts, we sourced manufacturers who provided the very best materials and created our Todhpurs riding boots. We spent a year experimenting with different samples and styles to ensure that the boots are as parent and toddler friendly as we can make them.
We set out to give your child the best start in their equestrian lives, we want these years to be filled with love and joy like ours were. When they too look back at the memories and the happiness riding gave to them, we will know that we have achieved all we set out to do, providing children with the best equestrian products to support them from an early age.
