Striving to Benefit the Horse

Premier Equestrian began in 2000 with the goal of making safe and affordable arena products. Heidi Zorn, an amateur dressage rider, saw the need in the market. With her partner, Mark Neihart, they designed a revolutionary line of dressage arenas, then maintenance free jumps, which eventually led to a complete line of synthetic footing and arena surface products.

Heidi is recognized as one of the leading footing experts in North America and a sought-after lecturer on equine biomechanics and the effects of footing on equine health and safety.
