About JPC Equestrian
JPC’s story is an international story of passion for horses and determination to make a dream into reality.
In 1992, an accomplished horseman was having second thoughts about the uncomfortable, expensive, synthetic clothing he–and his fellow riders–were always stuck wearing. He knew and they agreed about the need for comfortable, affordable riding apparel.
Therefore, Varun “Timmy” Sharma began researching, designing and working tirelessly to build a new, forward-thinking clothing company called JPC. He took his unconventional apparel–made with comfortable, natural fibers–from his small JPC factory in New Delhi, India and went to the prestigious markets of Europe and America. He sold his comfortable riding clothes at affordable prices and the world took notice.
Soon, the American demand for Timmy’s clothing led him to set up JPC-USA headquarters in Drums, Pennsylvania. In 2006 Laurie and Timmy Sharma joined forces and have continued to create outstanding products at great value for the rider and horse.
