Creating the Good Life
I spend my life constantly trying to create experiences and find things that excite! This page is where I will be sharing all the experiences that excite me and create the lifestyle I wish to live.
The Equestrian ​Life
Landa Lucio
 At the end of the day, our sport is one steeped in tradition, and whether it's the ultimate luxury of an Hermes hunting whip, the buttery texture of English leather, the sheen of a well groomed coat, or the flutter of a perfectly tailored show coat, no one knows how to do traditional luxury quite like equestrians can. 

We all know that a little mud won't hurt anyone and we're not afraid to work hard, but, in the spirit of the finer things in life, here are a few of the most beautiful equestrian images, that sum up our lifestyle perfectly.

There are certain brands and images that I have assosciated with the equestrian lifestyle for as long as I can remember. Think equestrian and the first thing I imagine is long rolling lines of post and rail fencing, loose boxes like the Badminton stable yard. Shiny leather, and quality, every where you look. 

The ​Ultimate Christmas List


So, you have the honour and privilege of christmas shopping for a horse crazy guy or girl, but what to get them?

 1. The horse shoe layering necklace

This stunning necklace has been on my wish list for a while, it’s simple and sophisticated design means they will probably never take it off, and the store offers amazing options to customise length and even add a card! Perfect gift!
 


The Arab Banir Horse Bust

This is the ultimate addition to any chic equestrian house hold. Capturing the essence of the Arabian breed it is the perfect piece for your mantle, and it’s on sale! 

 


Equestrian Art and Inventions Wall Hanging
Stanley Print House on Etsy
$13.98

No, its not just me, these are cool, (even my brother thought so!).  These Stanley Print House wall hangings are just different enough to make them awesome. They are the perfect compliment to clean slightly industrial decor and come in almost any colour under the sun. They are also a steal at just under $14, (excluding tax and shipping). I even asked around and the riding guys I know said they would hang these on their walls. Score!

 Adawnment Jewellery

Prices Vary Per Piece

I have a confession to make, if I could own every piece of the Adawnment Equestrienne collection, I would. This jewellery oozes class and sophistication while also holding onto that little touch of country with the touches of leather and big stones.

Chances are, in your circle, you have a horse loving wine drinker, and what better to gift them than an equestrian inspired wine rack! Made with horse shoes this wine rack is not only a beautiful piece of decor, but it also holds the wine.
