On a trot this year for holiday gifts to enthrall even the most discerning on your list? This collection from Marin County, California–based Stick & Ball wins the race by several lengths.
Discovered three years ago by The Scout Guide co-founder (and Charlottesville, Virginia, editor) Susie Matheson at a trunk show hosted by its founder, Elizabeth Welborn, in Mill Valley, California, Stick & Ball has attracted a vast following through pop-ups and events with the Menlo Charity Horse Show and The Hampton Classic. Perfect for far more than just equestrians, their timeless, sustainable pieces sit well in anyone’s saddle, conveying a convivial, posh, sporty style.
Embraced by Scout Guide editors from Hunt Country to Jackson Hole, Stick & Ball is perfect for those who enjoy fine living. “Equestrian styles have dictated fashion styles since the dawn of time, whether you participate in a discipline or not,” shares Matheson. “The items in Elizabeth’s collection have such a strong sense of place, like the Argentine ponchos. It’s motivated me to travel to all of those destinations.” Browse this inspired collection—leather accessories, plush alpaca ponchos, equestrian-themed home decor and much more—to snap up gifts that will let those on your nice list know you’re not just horsing around.
These items can be found online at stickandball.com, by appointment in the Mill Valley design studio, at select luxury boutiques across the US, such as Belle Cose in Jackson Hole and Tri-County Feeds in Marshall, Virginia, and resorts such as select Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, and Aman Resorts.
