About Us

About us starts with one person and a passing comment. In 2014 Leela made her own high visibility leg bands by cutting up a hi vis jacket removing all the reflective strips and re-creating into leg bands. While out riding together a friend commented ‘You should make those and sell them online’.

An idea was born, with no formal sewing experience, she borrowed a sewing machine from a family member and started making small high visibility items and selling them on eBay. Over the next few years Dark Horse Equestrian was shaped making high visibility ‘fashionable’ and affordable for all equestrians without looking like you’re heading to a building site.

High visibility is where it all began for us and we continue to lead the way. Fast forward eight years Dark Horse Equestrian has expanded into a leading recognised equestrian brand selling worldwide. Designing and creating unique equestrian items with quality and affordability at the forefront of every product.

We are proud to continue to design and manufacture products in Newtown, Mid Wales creating jobs and careers in the UK. All our staff from manufacturing to management work as a team, our work ethic is simple people come first, regardless of age or gender everyone is paid equally and above national living wage.

Our customers remain the most important part of our company and we couldn’t do what we do without you, so a huge thank you for your support.
