My name is Caitlin Scheer and I am 22 years old. I started riding when I was 7 years old, and I haven't stopped since. Starting out, like most kids, I rode lesson ponies. I fell in love with many of them. Walk, trot, canter, and little jumps. As I got older, I got out of jumping, especially after a bad fall off of one of those ponies. I grew up doing mostly flat work, and about 5 years ago, started dressage with my one mare, Paisley. I have 3 horses, all pulled from a kill pen in New Jersey, and they have all been great, despite 2 of the 3 being retired, (one to age, and one to an injury a couple of years ago).
6 years ago, in November of 2013, Caitlin Scheer, age 15 at the time, wanted to give a hand at starting a polo wrap making business. Not knowing how to sew, she self-taught on her mom's sewing machine with some scrap materials. After getting the feel for the machine, she stated making a few practice sets, which she used for herself and for a close friend. Practice makes perfect, so in the meantime, while continuing to get some practice in, she set up an instagram and a paypal account and took orders through email. A few months later, she set up an Etsy shop and listed her all of the color choices she was offering at the time. Selling out in just a short amount of time, back to the store to get some more. And it continued like that for a couple years, getting more well known, and business growing as time went on.
Fast forward to now, she has moved off of Etsy and created her own website with her own web domain. She has shipped orders all over the globe; Japan, Greece, Germany, and Italy- Just to name a few. She also has customers in all 50 states in the USA! Poloz R Us has attended large events for the past four years, and will continue to do so for a long time!!
