Equestrian fashion followers were aflutter last year when a certain azure blue horse print blouse, by an unknown brand named Rönner, appeared on the scene. We’ve since learned more about this Colombia-based design duo who are creating one of the few truly equestrian-inspired fashion lines in the world.
The Rönner girls – Carin, Jessica, and their mother Ines – are creative entrepreneurs educated in business and design and bring a unique blend of their South American heritage and European upbringing to the collection. Now showing items from their Silk Route and Fall /Winter Runway collections, we expect only more buzz and good things to come from this exciting new brand.

The holidays are fast approaching and what better time to have another giveaway! As part of our monthly showcase of equestrian artisans, designers, and retailers from around the world, we are very excited to feature the wonderful No. 3 collection from Caracol Inpsired Jewelry and Handbags.
Caracol has long been one of my favorite destinations for equestrian inspired jewelry. I’ve met owner Elizabeth Lowery at big shows like the World Cup Finals in Las Vegas and the Menlo Charity Show and she has quite a following nationally, visiting with customers at Dressage at Devon and other east coast venues, too. Her eye for style and quality are impeccable.
For the Giveaway, Elizabeth wanted to focus on the very exciting No. 3 collection from Spain. Every piece is handmade, having a unique identity and quality not achieved through mass production techniques. Says Elizabeth “Dressing with the No. 3 label feels like living the spirit of energy, freedom, and magic that embraces it.” We love the way these pieces reference equestrian harness and hardware without looking either too rough or too precious.
Caracolis offering one winner No. 3′s Clavado Leather Bracelet (shown at top of post). Clavado in Spanish means “firmly fixed” and we guarantee you will be firmly fixed in love with this striking bracelet. The leather slides off the top to put on and then sits firmly fixed on your wrist, making a statement of equestrian strength and radical coolness! (Retail value $149.)
In addition to the Clavado, the No. 3 collection includes a variety of other great pieces for fans of this classic, rugged leather and metal style.
Sometimes I’m just not sure what happens with these things that have been on my radar for a while, but fail to make it to the blog. For close to a year, I’ve been virtually obsessed with the Swedish brand Martha Ride Wear and their vision for “combining a pair of breeches with jeans reminiscent of rock clubs and trendy shops rather than riding lessons.” Tell me more, Martha!
For whatever reason, I’ve failed to share these until now, dear readers, so don’t wait another moment to check out Martha Ride Wear’s denim, corduroy, and waxed chino breeches as well as the adorable plaid tops, polos, and jackets, too.
