Vicky Moon | The Stylish Life: Equestrian

Writer and photographer Vicky Moon has chronicled the lives of the rich, the not-so-rich, the famous, and the not-so-famous for more than 20 years. Her latest book, The Stylish Life: Equestrain offers the reader an opportunity to explore the refined world of equestrian sports and culture through a beautiful array of black and white and lavish color photographs.

Readers will see images of royalty, socialites, and fabulously-dressed spectators intermingling with the high-profile stars of the sport. It is, quite simply, a wonderful compendium for every horse lover and anyone interested in rarefied sport culture and lifestyle.

Transcending sport and spectacle, all things equine and equestrian have captivated and charmed an elite global audience. Including horse racing, show-jumping, and polo, amongst other horse disciplines, this book encapsulates the glittering people, international events, fashion, and cultural impact—in such arenas as design and entertainment—that equine sports have had on the world at large.

With this, her eighth book, Ms. Moon has moved into the international sporting competitions, featured are the Kentucky Derby in Louisville to Royal Ascot in England to Prix de l’Arc in Paris, to events in Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Beijing, and many others. As you flip through the pages, peek inside luxurious horse stables and riding arenas, and marvel at the sheer glamour of such star athletes as Polo player Nacho Figueras and equestrienne Charlotte Casiraghi, the daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, resplendent in their riding attire.

As a life long equestrian, Ms. Moon has written about lavish parties, hunt balls, steeplechase races for People, The Washington Post, Town and Country, and Millionaire magazines. She has chronicled homes and gardens for Veranda and Southern Accents, has served as a contributing editor for House and Garden and writes a monthly column for Washington Life.

Ms. Moon’s other titles include: The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onassis: Portrait of a Rider; Equestrian Style: Home Design, Couture, And Collections from the Eclectic to the Elegant; The Middleburg Mystique; The Official Middleburg Life Cookbook; Best-dressed Southern Salads; and A Sunday Horse. She divides her time between the nautical capital of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, known as the “Venice of America,” and the horsey village of Middleburg, Virginia.

Thoroughbred Silver on Dazzling Blue Snakeskin Strap - Elite Equestrian Magazine Ad

A horse head with its mouth agape and eyes wide open as if in full stride is the latest example of wearable art by the accomplished and prominent sculptor and art jeweler, Christopher Ross.

Available in exquisitely crafted 24k gold and sterling silver, it is an Objet d’art designed to be worn on a belt of walnut brown calfskin for men or a blue snakeskin for women.

New York native Christopher Ross envisioned a belt as a jewel destined to become an heirloom. Each numbered piece is stamped with the artist’s signature, thumb print, date and copyright.

Notable collectors include The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Yale Art Gallery,  the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Great Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russia, and the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh.

Christopher Ross’s art to wear are eye catching and unmistakable expressions of individuality and discerning taste.
