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

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.

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.
