New luxury equestrian and country lifestyle brand Glaze & Gordon only launched at Olympia in December, but the company has already won over legions of style-conscious fans impressed by their ethos and amazing range of brands.
Glaze & Gordon was set up by sisters Becs Gordon and Kate Glaze, as they simply couldn’t find the right blend of well-made and stylish products when shopping for themselves and their horses. Many products created for horse and rider are either sadly lacking in style, or look good but just were not cut out for the slightly tougher life products have around equines! The idea was also to place the collection of brands in one online shop, so that shoppers aren’t paying for postage and packaging from multiple outlets.
Glaze & Gordon now present a carefully curated collection of tack, clothing, homewares and pet accessories from a range of brands chosen because they offer something different, and all firmly tick the boxes of style and substance. In an extra boon for their fans, the company is the exclusive UK supplier for some exciting European and American brands that share their ethos of delivering tried and tested fashionable products.
The team at Glaze & Gordon have done the leg work for you to source some wonderful gems never sold in the United Kingdom before, such as GhoDho, a seriously sought-after equestrian clothing brand from the United States. Their clothes are designed to look fabulous in and out of the saddle – they call it classic with an edge – and incorporate high-tech performance fabrics to ensure GhoDho clothing works seriously hard to impress.
Outback clothing, whose range includes classic oilskin overcoats and trousers, have an incredibly loyal following of fans who know they can trust the brand’s antipodean-inspired outdoor clothing and accessories. Their products get put through and pass the most rigorous testing as the clothing of choice for cowboys, cowgirls, hunters and farmers across the USA.
Another wonderful brand totally exclusive to Glaze & Gordon in the UK is the French heritage saddler Pravins Sellier, founded by husband and wife team Phillipe and Carol in the Beaujolais region. Their revolutionary wide stirrup leathers are made from high quality chrome tanned and pre-stretched leather to provide extraordinary longevity and reliability – what a treat for UK riders!
If you’re looking to treat the equine in your life to something that literally can’t be bought anywhere else in the country, then look no further than the sumptuous Sommer grooming brushes. They remind me of the brushes found in grooming kits of old, gorgeous wooden backed, leather handled brushes made from natural fibres that really work the oils from the root and along the length of the hair, to encourage shine.
Finally, Californian clothing brand Goode Rider is the brainchild of two ex-Levi Strauss designers who wanted to create elegant, stylish and practical riding clothes and used their considerable design and equestrian expertise to hit the nail on the head. The collection at Glaze & Gordon includes the iconic Equestrian Jean Full Seat Breeches, which have just the right amount of stretch to deliver exceptional comfort in the saddle whilst looking fantastic at the same time.
These wonderful brands are just a partial edit of the whole fabulous range, so make sure you take the time to browse the site and take in everything Glaze & Gordon has to offer!
