Spoga Horse 2013: Showpiece horse whips

Premium whip maker Fleck and Modastrass, a premium supplier of Swarovski Elements, announced showpiece horse whips embellished with Swarovski crystals.

Modastrass has a history of working with top designers, but this collaboration marks the company’s first foray into equestrian sports accessories.
