The horse world is a world steeped in tradition and history. We wanted the website to become a community that embraces those aspects - a place for the equestrian fashion and lifestyle enthusiasts to come together.

What grew out of the necessities of one horse enthusiast and rider is now the unique fashion styles of the Vermont based tote and luggage company Oughton Limited. Following in step with the expansion of their product line, the equestrian luggage and handbag company has joined with Nashville web design firm, Horton Group, to redesign their website. Working out of a barn on her Vermont farm, Daphne Powell Markcrow of Oughton designs a variety of totes and luggage including a line made from wax canvas with authentic halter hardware. Oughton products have been featured in magazines such as Martha Stewart Living and several blogs.
“Finding the right production took a lot of perseverance and commitment and several trips around the globe, quite literally,” said owner and founder Daphne Markcrow. “Intuitively, I completely understood that horses were not just a sport, but a way of life, and that these bags would hopefully have appeal to a broader lifestyle group.”
On the new website shoppers can browse a variety of equestrian gifts as well as totes, handbags and accessories for all occasions. For those seeking easier ways to organize their show gear, Oughton also designs fashionable equestrian luggage such as: tacktrunk, boot and overnight bags. Each item available on the website includes a variety of images along with detailed product descriptions.
Visitors to the website can also learn more about the Oughton brand and the equestrian community from their blog or connect with the company via Facebook and Twitter. Shoppers can pin items they like to their Pinterest boards or repin Oughton’s equestrian chic finds. Equestrian style guide, Dappled Grey has rated Oughton Limited as one of the best Pinterest resources for equestrian chic living.
“The horse world is a world steeped in tradition and history. We wanted the website to become a community that embraces those aspects - a place for the equestrian fashion and lifestyle enthusiasts to come together.” stated Markcrow.
Oughton Limited began making equestrian styled fashions and gifts in 2007 and continues to add more products and lines to their classically designed luggage and totes. The updated website allows customers to shop securely while learning more about the equestrian lifestyle & fashion community.
