A match made in heaven. Let your inner creative out and design your perfect pair of slippers for summer. High-quality materials like velvet, linen, tweed and leather in combination with bright colors and equestrian touches…no doubt, we are a fan! We ‘ve designed some beautiful slippers with the online tool by Stubbs & Wootton.
Founded in 1993 by Percy Steinhart, the luxury slipper brand has made it to posh parties to enhance formal wear, to popular resorts and is worn by lots of celebrities. Recently, they launched a Polo trunk collection. The limited edition slippers were sold out in no time, which inspired us to design our own colorful slipper. By using the tool on the Stubbs & Wootton website, you can choose your fabric, color and favorite logo to create your dream slipper.As you might imagine their shoes are not cheap, but they are handmade and the quality is outstanding. We went for our favorite colors: blue, pink and beige. Off course you can pick any color you like.There are several equestrian logos: stirrups, a polo horse, a polo logo, a jumping horse,… but you can also add any initials or words you would like. Beache please…The slippers are available at Stubbs & Wootton. (price +- 450$)
We love sourcing unique pieces to “decorate ” our horses. Forget about the bling bling swarovski equipment and varnish leather for your furry friends, polo style is the new it-thing.
Creative soul, horse lover and polo player Alina Carta (founder of Masai of Palm Beach) is involved with polo for over 35 years and this experience inspired her to develop a unique as well as a sturdy interpretation of the bridle brow band. As saddle pads and bandages serve to distinguish polo teams around the world, the customized brow band decoratively distinguishes the individual owner.
All the products are handmade in Africa by the Masai Tribe and the designs are inspired by the Masai’s customary tribal attire and decor. Their bead work has had a long history among the Masai women, passed on through generation to generation. The beads are bold in color and typically set in high contrast patterns which are spiritually meaningful for the Masai.
Did you know all colors have a meaning? Blue represents the sky and white stands for purity. These colors are matching perfectly with my stallion.
The leather is really soft, the shape of the browband fits perfectly and is completely “sweat-proof“. Every detail represents craftsmanship.
There are more than 20 bead colors available so you can customize your own browband or accessory.
If you are one of those people who wants to have matching accessories, than you are at the right place at Masai of Palm Beach. They even have colorful belts, bracelets, keychains, sandals and dog collars in the same material.
These bracelets are not only matching you horse’s brow bands, but are also the perfect accessory at a festival, cool and playful.
Thanks to Alina for the lovely gifts!

One of the big advantages and fun aspects of writing a blog is that you meet people from all over the world with the same interests. One of these stylish people is Danish/Brazilian girl Diana who runs the blog Polo People Places and who is our guest blogger for this article. You can’t be everywhere, …right? So let’s enjoy her journey at the Scandinavian Beach Polo World Cup in Denmark.
Denmark’s most beautiful beach, situated in the town of Hornbæk on the North Sealand coast played host to the first edition of The Scandinavian Beach Polo World Cup. Hornbæk is Denmark’s equivilant to The Hamptons and is home to the most expensive holiday homes in Scandinavia and has been a summer retreat of the jetset for generations. 8 two-man teams entered the 3 day tournament with handicaps from 0 – 6 goals. The tournament had been preceded by a parade through the town to increase popularity with the locals who supported the players and the event throughout. The event featured an exclusive VIP area for 300 people who were treated to a lunch of Veuve Clicquot champagne and Rossini Caviar and food from Ilse Jacobsen’s ‘Kurbadet’ in an impressive marquee with cabanas facing the pitch.
Players from countries ranging from Argentina to Czech Republic took part and also included La Martina’s Brand Ambassador – George Pearson. The first day saw action from the start with skilled polo to impress the spectators who followed the games with cheers and claps. Impressive plays by players such as Federico Boudou, Royston Prisk and Stevie McGraith made them a favourite with the crowds from the start and throughout the tournament.
Over 8,000 spectators enjoyed the three days of polo action on one of Denmark’s most beautiful beaches and were treated to not only up close polo action but also on-pitch activity such as the Rossini Caviar Dash which was open to all spectators and proved a great success. Spectators were asked to participate in a race to win a 250g tub of caviar worth over £500.
Professional UK based player Royston Prisk commented ‘this is the most beautiful and well organised beach polo tournament I have ever played in, I loved every minute of it’.
