ABOUT ARGENT EQUUS
"As a passionate, committed and lifelong equestrian, Argent Equus combines my love of horses and high end luxury design. After a successful but demanding career in fashion buying, returning to my first love equestrianism has been fulfilling and quite literally a breath of fresh air".
Clare Brown, founder Argent Equus
After convincing my husband to take up riding, I attempted to buy him a quality crop with an engravable Sterling silver collar as a birthday gift. I searched traditional saddleries, tack stores, country outfitters and the internet. Disappointingly I was left empty handed. The search amazed me - how whips and crops had changed! Gone were the beautiful, artisan made elegant leather crops from my childhood, in their place, a raft of glitter and rubber, suitable perhaps for everyday needs, but not for special occasions or for those with more sophisticated taste. On discussing this with fellow horsewomen (and the odd horseman), I could hardly believe this was an un-serviced area in the horse world, especially knowing how much attention we lavish on our four legged friends and on our own turn out. So working with a team of traditional craftsmen, I used my eye for design developed during a long career in fashion to create a stylish, high end range of riding whips, canes and crops and their complimentary Sterling silver collars and end caps. Hence the Argent Equus collection was born.
Elegant, opulent and unashamedly timeless, Argent Equus horse riding whips hark back to a more stylish era of horsemanship.
