Humans began domesticating horses as far back as 4000 BCE. To put that timeline in perspective, consider that human civilization and writing did not emerge in earnest for another 800 or 900 years after horses . All of this is to say, relations between horses and human beings predate the written word. The interceding millennia have provided ample time for the development of clothing suited to horse riding to emerge. British Vogue takes stock of modern equestrian style in its March 2018 issue in a story featuring Selena Forrest photographed by Theo Sion. Selena (pictured) jumps off the page wearing an embroidered riding coat and cotton shorts by Luis Vuitton and leather boots from Chloé worn with ribbed socks by Holland & Holland. No surprise Selena wears the frock coat so well, after all she wore much of the same walking for Nicolas Ghesquière last October at the Louvre in Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 runway show. Giddy-up!
