Horsey Fashion (For People, Not Those Onesies for Horses)

Posted: Updated:

Everyone seems to be off to the races at the moment. Horse racing is one Great British pastime I've never indulged in, although I do love horses and riding, and spent a large part of my early years hanging around stables, hacking, grooming and mucking out - happy days.

Even more prevalent than pictures from Race Days in my various social media timelines, are images of horse-inspired accessories and fashion pieces so here's a selection of my favourites - I mean, who wouldn't want a horsey knuckleduster? - though for those of you who are looking to splurge any winnings, these rose gold and diamond Gucci snaffle earrings over on Net-A-Porter might be more the ticket.
