Valentine Equine was established in 2013 on the island of Bali. We wanted to create unique riding attire that would set you apart from the crowd whilst maintaining the old-world class that is synonymous with equestrian sports.
We are passionate about the environment and aim to reduce plastic usage wherever possible. We use recycled plastics or Cassava bags that are recyclable with paper, and safe for sea life to eat. Our shipping bags are cardboard, recycled plastics or compostable, and we only use paper based stickers and swing tags. Each part of the process is thoroughly thought-out and approached with minimalist ideals.
At Valentine Equine we believe all people have a right to respect, compassion and fair pay for their skills in the workplace. We wanted to build a responsible brand and ethically manufacture goods with artisans, not in sweatshops. Production has moved to bigger premises in China, keeping in line with our values. The products are made in an environment where the staff are happy, paid fairly, provided with medical insurance for themselves and their children and most importantly where we can visit, oversee and generally pop in any time, have a look around and chat to the people making our garments.
Our passion lies in the aesthetic world of show horse and dressage although currently we are enjoying combining technical fabrics with flared styling to create unique performance attire. Recent lines are introducing regenerated fabrics and muscle compression to equestrian sports.
