There is nothing like dreaming of summer during the winter months whilst we are battling with blustery winds, regular downpours and chilly frozen mornings. We at Asmar Equestrian can’t make it summer for you but we can help you stay warm and dry during the colder months.

The Longsleeve T- Mockneck and the  Women’s AE Logo Longsleeve T provide perfect base layers to wear under the rest of your equestrian attire for extra warmth without the need for bulky layers. Perfect for layering the streamline tops from Asmar Equestrian provide a stylish way to look chic whilst keeping warm.

The stretchy, flexible fabric allows you to move whether on the yard or whilst working and the clever technological design includes a Chitosante treatment which allows the garments to be absorbent, breathable, durable, fast-drying, static-free, wrinkle and pill resistant.

The final entry from Asmar equestrian-sponsored rider, Sophie Wells, from the Frankfurt 2011 Young Riders World Cup Final

Asmar equestrian-sponsored rider, Sophie Wells, recently attended the Frankfurt 2011 Young Riders World Cup Final in Germany, which was held from 16 – 18 December 2011. We have been serialising her diary entries, and this is the final entry.

The day of the kur, or dressage to music, and I was drawn first – typical, but my own fault as I had to draw the ball out of the hat!! But i’m all about setting the standard on the day as that’s something we cannot control! Noki felt good warming up, and when we went around the arena, it was really buzzing in there as it was a Saturday evening and many people had come to watch. When Noki heard his music he got a little excited, which was lovely because he does love his music, but it did ‘up’ him 3 gears. It caused a few mistakes, however it was an amazing opportunity to be put in that situation, being exposed to it and to experience it, and I have no doubt we will have come out of it stronger. We dropped one place in the freestyle to 7th, but in the scheme of things, being the World Cup final, I was very pleased with it. The judges were all very complimentary about us, and obviously we are different, with me being a para rider at an able bodied major competition; however we seemed to be received really well.

Noki really showed off in the prize giving doing the biggest extended trot I’ve ever sat on, he felt incredible. I’m so pleased he enjoyed it too, as I so enjoyed it, and I’m glad it didn’t stress him out, he looked very pleased with himself after. Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff had arranged for each rider to have a photo printed for when we came out of the prize giving in a specially engraved photo frame, which I gave to Noki’s owners Jackie and Neil, as they have allowed me to ride him and are so supportive. We went out for a celebratory meal that night with them before they had to fly back home and it really was lovely, I really appreciate all the hard work everybody who supported me out there, Jackie, Neil , Ange and Mark, had done and made it such an enjoyable and memorable trip.

I feel it has been great preparation ahead of London 2012 this year and our campaign for it will get under way now. I am trying to look at my finances to see whether it is possible and figure out where would be the best to be based next year. Angela Weiss has been amazing in her training, and help and support over all the years she has helped me, and I feel basing with her in the run up to London will give more continuity and enable her to overlook every aspect of training and care of the horses for next year. We are a fantastic team and I couldn’t do it without her!

Sunday morning we did some shopping before we left, it was quite sad to leave as I had enjoyed it so much! We hit blizzards on the way home coming through France, but we did get into the Christmas spirit when we stopped for fuel….

Thank you to everyone, all my sponsors and supporters, amazing team, family, friends, who have made this year possible. Next year… we come!

I was able to wear my new Asmar Equestrian Hunter Jacket, which has my sponsors’ logos on the front and back -it was great to wear around the venue and when I was riding.

Colours to flatter your skin tone

Warm skin tone – rich red, sparkling gold or topaz yellow





Neutral skin tone – you’re the lucky ones! Almost every colour will flatter your skin tone.



Fair skin tone – deep amethyst purple, emerald green, diamond pink or sapphire blue.

Exuberant regal tones

Huddlesfield Eye Magazine recently featured a lovely article on regal colours and trends. Our very own Noel Asmar gives her opinions and views on the latest jewel colours…

The bright acid colours of the summer have faded into the majestic realm of jewel inspired tones for autumn and winter. Shine like a gem – think striking and electric sapphire, deep ruby or rich emerald in order to create a real sophisticated look.

Really shine in a bold jewel tone outfit

To imitate the catwalk and make a real statement, just choose one colour and wear it monochromatically. Jasmine di Milo, Chloe, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen have all designed omnipotent outfits for a true ostentatious feel. So forget the little black dress and learn to command by being dynamic and distinctive.

If this sounds all a bit too daunting and you’re more of the jeans and trainer type, then why not dazzle up your look by adding a colourful gilet, jacket or polo shirt to your outfit? You’ll remain true to your style while the fashionista inside gleams through.

You could always let your accessories do the sparkling instead. There are a whole range of clutch bags, high-heels and hair jewels on the high street and all available in valuable precious tones.

Fashion designer Noel Asmar from Asmar Equestrian adores the vivid colours inspired by precious gemstones, she says “Jewel tones have always influenced my designs. Our fashion range is full of vibrant colours, perfect for adding a touch of style and glamour to any outfit. We specialise in countryside and equestrian clothing, which can often be drab and uninspiring. Our most popular colours are the deep reds and regal plums. We appreciate that the right colours can create an elegant sophistication that will make sure you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.”

All of Asmar Equestrian’s pieces include outdoor and equestrian tailoring. They are not only beautiful, but are the perfect example of functionality meeting high-end fashion.
