It isn’t long now at all until the iconic roar of the Cheltenham crowd rises from the racecourse at exactly 1:30pm on the 12th of March, when the tapes fly up for the start of Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the festival gets under way! A truly magical, thrilling and downright fun four days of the highest quality National Hunt racing in the world awaits those lucky people who will be heading to Cheltenham, and there will be some truly fabulous country fashion on show. The festival is traditionally a sea of tweed interspersed with shamrock hats and Guinness scarves from the enormous Irish contingent, and it’s a great place to spot famous faces and great style.

For ladies who are heading to the festival and are wondering what to wear, it’s all about being warm (who knows what weather we’ll get this year, but it can be downright freezing!) but elegant with a country twist. You can guarantee there will be lots of beautiful tweed jackets and skirts, long leather boots and cosy fur gilets on show, so what can you do if you really want to stand out from the crowd and add some signature style? I think it’s got to be all about rocking the most wonderful accessories!

Pegasus Jewellery is my go-to place for stunning jewellery and it’s perfect for Cheltenham thanks to the subtle and elegant equestrian styling. Here are my five favourite pieces for adding some serious equestrian sparkle to your Cheltenham outfit this year:
