How long does it take to drop the ball? Just over 1 second.
We did the calculation…
So far, we have: 9.8 m/s^2 (acceleration in free fall)/2 = 4.9 m/s (average speed over 1 second). If we drop a ball 1 meter, that is just over 1 second before it hits the ground.
If it takes 15 minutes to embroider the below saddle pad, that is 900 seconds of opportunity to drop the ball. That is 900 seconds of making sure every single part of the process goes right. Pair that with 15,000 stitches worth of complexity and you can see why what we do is very much about precision.
Most of you don’t have time to micromanage your branding experience. When you work with our team, we are making sure all balls stay in the air so that nothing gets dropped on your behalf.
Because when we put your logo on one of our products, we are equally as invested in producing excellence.
If you don’t already have a logo you love, let our logo team design you one.
If you have a logo you love, bring it here to SP RHODES so we can help it levitate.

This silver fox is marvelling in the golden light…
Farm sign design is not formulaic. By that, we mean that each farm sign demands a design style based on where the sign will be located, which direction it will face and the elements it will have to endure. Another consideration is whether or not the aesthetic is considered acceptable in your county. Many counties have rules around colors that can be used on signage and maximum sign parameters.
Familiarity with rules and what makes sound farm sign design is just another reason why our farm sign program has been such a success. We take care of the things you shouldn’t have to worry about.
Below, we feature a 3×4 ft, single-sided WeatherPlex™ farm sign in full color made from the most durable material you can buy. Waterproof, won’t warp, vibrant, durable. We are also committed to using well-known brand name materials like 3M rather than less costly alternatives because we know that a long-lasting farm sign means a long-lasting welcome.

The secret to any high-performing team is trust. Trust is easy to take for granted, especially in an equestrian facility. Regardless of how great your business is, if your clients lack faith in your ability to organize their horses, nothing else will matter. Nice arenas, lush individual turnout and pristine fences won’t matter when who goes where and when isn’t ironed out.
One thing we don’t take for granted at SP RHODES is thinking intelligently and working with facility managers to crack the nut on how to avoid going nuts with a barn full of horses and clients. They should never have less than the best so maybe it’s time to invest.
Below, we feature a dynamic scheduling tool for Black Equestrian. This dry-erase board layout allows for two weeks of planning. The best part? That planning can be for anything. Rides, vet, show prep….all of it. When it gets busy, both sections can be for the same week. Lots of ways to make this design work.

A beautiful new hand-illustrated dressage logo featuring a born star by SP RHODES…email@example.com
Once ridden by Steffen Peters, the majestic Udon rose to fame as a bronze medalist at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. While this new logo gets released today, this equestrian brand story started a long time ago; a horse with heart, destined to win; also destined to help many throughout his lifetime.
Falling in love with a horse is one of the reasons why many of our equestrian logos feature "that one horse". In Allyson’s case, Udon elegantly and carefully navigates her initials in perfect form in the same way he has navigated her heart.
This logo design is versatile because it can be presented either in horizontal or stacked form. Variability in the design allows for multiple product applications without having to lose the overall aesthetic of the design.
Congratulations to Ally Rogers on this beautiful new equestrian logo design. We hope it carries you as far as Udon has 🏆🦄.
Companies promote products all the time. It is the way of business. "Buy this", you will love it, they say. "It’s the best", they say.
The thing is, everybody will always say what they do is "the best"; but is that really an honest opinion? Maybe yes, maybe no.
When it comes to SP RHODES Technical ball caps, or opinion is based on creating a product from the ground up that solves common equestrian problems. Most of the ball caps we have worn for the duration of our equestrian lives have faded, stained with sweat on hot days and have failed to endure the rigours of equestrian life.
We wanted to manufacture a ball cap that was not only breathable, but was also made to be sturdy, washer friendly, fade-resistant, fully adjustable and of course comfortable. We also adjusted the depth of the bucket, the length of the visor and added additional inches to the metal buckle so it fits a wide variety of noggins.
If we pair the above features with a novel high-quality technical fabric, specifically made to work perfectly with our SureStitch™ embroidery process, there really is no substitute. We don’t just say it, we evidence it through hundreds of happy equestrian branding customers.
The best products are ones that don’t take an easy road. They take the smart road; they are built from ideas that solve equestrian problems.
Shop our SP RHODES Technical ball caps and add your logo. It’s a sure way to give your equestrian brand a hand and start Living A Beautifully Branded Equestrian Lifestyle™

In an effort to fully comprehend the needs of our customers, it is important to stop, listen and realize the true potential of their journey.
In the case of McGauley Equine Holdings, we needed to create a logo that had a serious, iconic design, was easy to reproduce and could be used with the icon as a stand-alone element. The icon needed to evidence simplicity and also needed to be a correct interpretation of the American Saddlebred.
The American Saddlebred horse is characterized by a short, strong back; the barrel is rounder than in most light breeds. The neck is long, slender, and well-arched; it blends smoothly into a well-shaped shoulder. The croup is long and almost level. The movement in this design really speaks to this breed and the illustration was based on "Whip", a stallion that continues to unify the McGauley family with his charm.
Taking a 360 approach to professional equestrian logo design means we aren’t just building brands, we are building reputations 🏆💙.
Reach out to work with us in an equestrian logo of your very own; sparing no details with a friendly and enthusiastic team who can take your hand with your brand.
Hardworking, irreplaceable, connected to the horses in a special way, our grooms are part of our family and are part of the reason why we are able to find success in the ring.
Sunnybrook Elite Riding Club has a deep understanding of this. When you run your business with excellence in mind, dressing to impress shouldn’t only be reserved for riders. Of equal importance (if not more important) are those who keep the wheel spinning, the legs cooling and the coats gleaming.
We are proud to consider ourselves part of the Sunnybrook Elite Riding Club team. Why? Because we share in the ideal of excellence.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit." – Aristotle
Now THAT’s a good habit to have!

EQUESTRIAN LOGO DESIGN FROM SP RHODES…A new equestrian logo design that incorporates two of our favourite creatures…
We are going to make the assumption that most horse lovers are also dog lovers. Our loyal canines accompany us wherever we go, always underfoot, always ready to love.
The below logo design demanded the incorporation of a German Shorthaired Pointer with a horse and a feather. Each element representing a special part of Carrie’s equestrian and canine journey.
Creating a kinship between these two creatures was important. The addition of a feather, which is a powerful symbol signifying honor and connection, literally "has the backs" of these two beautiful souls. Together, the overall picture celebrates unity between four different species; dogs, horses, birds and humans.
Giving this iconic design the boundary of a partial ellipse (the oval frame around the top design) brings all the artwork together, unifying the letterforms with the top illustration.
Congratulations to Carrie on this unique homegrown design; it doesn’t need the feather to have wings 💙🪂.

When was the last time your equestrian brand had a check up?
If you aren’t sure, then we can suggest in an effort to keep your blood pressure low and heart rate steady, you consider avoiding equestrian BRAND-aid solutions.
Investing in quality equestrian products for your equestrian brand means items will be around longer, become a favourite among recipients and most importantly, represent the quality of your core values. It is hard to gain consumer confidence when you aren’t sharing a quality product to match your proposed quality service.
ShowMD came up with this clever logo that embodies what they do. Mobile health care at the horse show is such a great idea. Knowing someone is there to address when you feel a little "off" means you can be back "on" faster and ahead of the game when it comes to your health.
Featured below are all things that we would like to categorize under "protection"; and appropriately so.
SPR sun visors and ball caps to protect you from the sun. SPR saddle pads to protect your horse from a slipping saddle and SPR horse bonnets for a little bit of a quieter ride.
To that we say, congratulations SHOWMD; you have passed your brand exam with flying colors.

Appreciate life’s high points. Don’t get stuck in a rut. Cherish wide open spaces. Be at home in the woods. Make your voice be heard. Know when to make tracks. Be magnificent! – Author unknown
Not all equestrian logos need to feature a horse. In the case of this design, we were inspired by the mighty elk. This rustic woodsy design features so many natural points of interest that Golden Sage really is at home in the woods 🌲🎄.
Rather than make an assumption that your equestrian logo needs a horse, potentially consider another focal point like the flora or fauna on your farm. While many of our designs do feature a horse, there are many other ways to create a magnificent design.
Make your voice be heard, cherish wide open spaces and while you may be a horse person at heart, that is not your only defining characteristic. What else do you love?
Sometimes, it’s not worth pushing that snooze button.
Early mornings are perfect in the Perfect Hunter Fall riding jacket.

Another new Dressage logo by SP RHODES Equestrian Identity.
This equestrian brand story starts with a horse in movement with elegant lines and a modern aesthetic.
There are a few things in particular that give this design an authentic sense of movement. Illustrating the horse on a 45 degree angle, giving the tail some wind to create the letter H and positioning the heavier text elements behind the horse all contribute to a "pushed forward" result.
When we design horse logos, a deep understanding of line weight, correct angles, conformation, perspective, typography and color theory are all necessary. That is the difference between a simple equestrian logo and an equestrian BRAND.
Thought behind the development of a professional equestrian design is what gives it impulsion; a word that can never be underestimated in the world of horses.
Congratulations Hannah Michaels on your new equestrian brand. You are now Living A Beautifully Branded Equestrian Lifestyle™!

Nothing feels better than being prepared. That means having all the tools you need for a successful show day on hand (or on your back). A place for your boots, helmet, snacks and even a hidden compartment for your valuables.
Ergonomic fit, exceptional quality, multiple interior compartments, ballistic material, back venting, comfortable contoured straps, removable helmet sling and customizable with your name and logo.
Preparation feels amazing, reduces stress and puts you in a position where you can be "that person" who always has a solution on hand (does anyone need a Band-Aid?) 🥰. Being helpful is the best form of popularity.
High quality stable accessories and horse wear so beautiful, you will wonder how you did it before…
Stable accessories and horse wear made with quality materials are enduring and there is reason why certain fabrics are preferred over others.
Here at SP RHODES, using 100% Sunbrella for our stall guards, bandage loops and presentation walls means clean crisp lines with a quality custom finish. How do we achieve this? We create the piping, we create the trim. We then sew the items to a high standard with reinforced stitching and double-layered Sunbrella fabric. Doing things this way is doing things the right way. We don’t use cotton. We don’t use nylon.
A few other details to note:
• Our stall guards are edge-to-edge in the doorway. That means, no untidy straps and a safer and more secure boundary for your horse.
• Our bandage slings come with both a velcro and a D ring so that securing your brand comes easy. Same goes for our valences, stall walls and name banners. Easy assembly means more secure attachments and a starchy crisp appearance.
The below photos also feature a beautifully made rain sheet with a hood to die for! Horses are our children; that means we want them to feel protected and comfortable alongside us humans. Rainy horse show days call for comfortable, stylish and durable protective layers. All our rain sheets come lined and are made-to-order in any size; not just in two inch increments.
Our enthusiasm for what we do translates into how we do it and why we choose to seek alternatives to what has for a long time been status quo. Equestrian sport is not just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle; and it’s time everyone started Living A Beautifully Branded Equestrian Lifestyle™.
The key to creating beautiful and enduring equestrian things involves a consideration of the environment in which they will be used. Equestrians lead a physically demanding lifestyle; the majority of the time outdoors.
SP RHODES equestrian hats are fade-resistant, made with high-quality wicking fabric, washable, feature extra-wide sweat bands, are fully adjustable and are made specifically to support the embroidery of your logo. That means enduring quality and style will carry you through hot days, cool evenings, moist mornings and arid afternoons.
We have made changes to traditional ball cap design with the equestrian in mind; this one is a JEM, that’s for sure!
Available in black, white, grey and navy. $29.99 each including embroidery of your logo if we have it on file.
Discounts available for quantities of 20 or more.
Featured below is our equestrian cap in white with a new logo developed for JEM Dressage in teal and midnight blue. When you combine a beautiful logo design by SP RHODES with an equally as impressive SP RHODES product; you are building your equestrian brand visually to its fullest potential.

Brockelsby Inc takes their horses seriously. They say that when you take care of the details, the rest will follow. We concur.
In the professional realm as a human, there is a reason why name tags are the first thing you collect upon arrival at an event. Why? Because the beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names.
If we love our horses and aim for a professional and polished image then duct tape is an absolute NO and SP RHODES is an absolute YES!

LET SP RHODES HELP YOU DESIGN THE EQUESTRIAN LOGO YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED…
The inception of this logo comes from a very deep place of reflection and resilience. The belief that while we all may be different, we all still reflect on the same moon and the same stars. In those dreams, many of us see horses because the very nature of being an equestrian is believing in spirit.
"I’ve always loved space and astrology. I got a little star tattoo on my wrist to remind myself that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be."
Tess knew that she wanted something whimsy but also something that played well with angles and combined subtle colors with modern style. Using a transitional serif font (font with little caps on the ends) gives the overall design good balance and sophistication.
This logo stops and makes us realize that the secret to a good life is always looking up.
Congratulations Tess on this truly whimsical creation; you already have a head start on shooting for the stars 🏆.

EQUESTRIAN LOGO DESIGN THAT PUSHES THE LIMITS OF IMAGINATION…
The journey towards this equestrian brand was eye-opening because it gave us the opportunity to really focus on the idea of connection between horse and rider. The story behind how this brand came to be will be Scarlett’s to tell but what we can say is that her story is moving. Resilient, dedicated to healing and unique in her pursuit of excellence, there is a 1:1 ratio of muscle to emotion in this story.
Meshing two species anatomically is no easy feat. This design took inspiration from the need for a rider to truly "lean on" and trust their mount. Likewise, the horse has to be willing to shoulder the demands (and mistakes) of the rider. Together, when united, both become unique machines creating a powerful force.
Congratulations Scarlett on your unique and impactful equestrian brand story. We can’t wait to see you Living A Beautifully Branded Equestrian Lifestyle™.
