National Hunt fans pull on your tweed, grab a glass of champagne (or pint of Guinness!) and make your selections please! The thrills and spills of the iconic Cheltenham festival kick off on Tuesday when racegoers, jockeys, grooms and horses descend on Prestpury Park for 4 days of high-class racing. From the Cross Country Chase to the Champion Hurdle, every day sees some of the best National Hunt racing of the year, all building to the excitement of the Gold Cup on Friday. If you love racing and you’ve never been, I highly recommend you take it in at least once! The roar of the crowd when the first race of the day sets off is something to behold.
Creating a winning look
Are you lucky enough to be heading to the Cheltenham festival this week or any horse racing over the next few months? If so, you’re probably on the hunt for those finishing touches to your outfit. Cheltenham means tweed, fur (or faux fur), and a lot of shamrocks – and a splash of equestrian style never goes amiss! Read on for some of my favourite equestrian jewellery picks to add glitter and sparkle to your ensemble this Cheltenham festival.
From the most subtle equestrian jewellery…
If you’ve spent heaps on a fabulous hat for Cheltenham, then subtle jewellery might be just the ticket. Pegasus Jewellery have a beautiful selection of earrings that feature little hints of our favourite equestrian symbology, such as stirrups, snaffled and horseshoes. My favourite pair of earrings for an understated option are the Rose Gold Stirrup Stud Earrings. Rose gold is so enduring and these pretty earrings will make you smile every time you put them on.
Or enough glitter to light up the parade ring
If you’d prefer your jewellery to be one of the features of your race day outfit, you could pick jewellery that will sparkle and catch the light when you move. I’m like a magpie and adore anything with glittering stones! The dazzling Pegasus Horseshoe Pendant not only ticks that box, but it also gives you three necklaces in one. The horseshoe detail is gorgeous and it certainly turns heads at horsey events.
…to the downright magnificent!
If you’re after the kind of jewellery to truly wow people and turn heads – well, Pegasus has that covered too. From the amazing detail of the statement Large Silver Stirrup Pendant to the stunning gleam of the Pegasus Wings Sparkle Earrings – there’s so much to choose from.
