Dark Horse equestrian began with a passing comment, DHE founder Leela had made her own high visibility leg bands and was out riding with a friend who suggested she should sell them online. She started manufacturing and selling high visibility products from home growing the range of colours and products available. The next step was easy you can get lots of plain coloured saddle pads that are more or less the same why doesn’t anyone do really pretty designs or vibrant colours something really different, unusual and fun.
