About Hot Pride
We’re proud to be living in the Pacific Northwest and to be Oregonians. We live in a wonderful country and have been blessed with life in HORSE COUNTRY!
Our family’s love of horses began in California and in 2003 we made Oregon our forever home. We’ve owned, leased, trained, been bucked off, and been made horse poor – – all in the pursuit of the equine lifestyle. We are a mixed family! One of us is a hunter/jumper and the other a once-upon-a-time western rider.
We are passionate about our equine businesses. We started MC2 Marketing & On Fire Websites (which specializes in equine business marketing – branding, websites, social media, SEO, and much more) after escaping the corporate marketing world in 2004. We started Hot Pride clothing in 2016.
Teri, aka The Boss, started Hot Pride as a means to fund-raise for Oregon Horse Country Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, that supports “heroes” of the equine world. Heroes who work to rescue abandoned horses, introduce riding to under-privileged children, offer riding therapy to veterans, create feed-banks, and make so many other vital and valuable contributions to our community.
President of the Foundation, Teri works with the Board and volunteers to fund-raise and then give it back out to the community. Teri says, “It is so easy to get caught up in work and the stresses of life and not take time to give back. I want to know in my heart that I paid-it-forward and helped feed a starving horse, saved a horse from slaughter, and, perhaps, helped a child explode in joy at the sight of a horse.”
Hot Pride was designed to help spread the love of horses and expand the good will and good work of non-profits everywhere, not just in Oregon. Remember, show you’re proud. Wear it!
