Modjods are made for equestrians, by equestrians. Owner Lynne Moeller has a four-generation family history with American Saddlebreds….starting with her grandfather and her mother in North Carolina.
And then Lynne showing throughout the Carolinas and later in Missouri where she was graduated from Stephens College. Daughters Katie and Caroline followed with successful careers in equitation and performance in the Midwest and Kentucky under the direction of Max Ciampoli, Brooke Graves and Lillian Shively.
It was in 2005, when the girls started showing that Modjods began. Lynne, along with Jean Mutrux, both horse show moms and Stephens’ grads decided to make fun jods for little girls….with Katie, Caroline and Abby (8 and 10 years old at the time) as the inspiration. The colorful patterns and fun fabrics soon attracted the attention of all ages. So in year two, Modjods were also made in adult sizes. Soon came requests for a “jean jod”, which had the look of the jean but the shape and function of a jod.
The Finest Quality Jod On The Market
The comfort and fit of these patterns, which are original, appealed to all. And in response to professionals who preferred more sedate fabrics, the elite and signature jods in basic colors were created. Shortly thereafter Modjods was asked to be the official supplier of jods to the US and Canadian World Cup Saddleseat Teams, and has done so for more than 10 years.
The super stretchy, sleek Signature jods became extremely popular and are used now as frequently as jods for show as for practice! Many riders will attest to the durability and longevity as well.
“Modjods truly values its’ loyal customers…. The innovations and new patterns we’ve developed have come in response to our clients requests’ and we plan to continue with the introduction of new product lines in the near future,” says Moeller. “We believe that once you buy our jods, you will be our customer forever….and that is our goal, for sure,” she added.
