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!

The most exciting launch of last week was for sure the new Hunter Boots collection “Duke of Wellington” by Hunter Fields. I am a huge fan of classy British brands and if a collection is also equestrian inspired, we want to be first in line to discover it.
The all-purpose equestrian collection, set to launch in Spring 2016, is the first collaboration within Hunter’s new brand category, Hunter Field. The launch event was held at Apsley House, the home of the first Duke of Wellington, in the same week as the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. Apsley House, also known as Number One, London, stands alone at Hyde Park Corner, a must visit when you are in London.
Working with the Duke of Wellington’s family, Hunter has reinforced historic pieces to create a collection that fuses technological advances with heritage design.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted by 4 horses, with riders each wearing key pieces from the collection. Even supermodel David Gandy was attending the event.
Developed with their technical experts in the equestrian field, the collection comprises men’s and women’s leather and rubber boots including riding and jodhpur styles, all with scarlet red heel features inspired by the Duke’s original Wellington Boot, and discreet Duke of Wellington x Hunter Field branding.
We already look forward to spring 2016 to wear this beautiful stylish collection.
