Oak Hill Equestrian is a Hunter/Jumper training facility and show barn located in the beautiful rolling hills outside of Lexington, Kentucky. This symmetrical d-ring snaffle bit training logo was designed with extra attention to its visibility when embroidered in small areas or seen from a far distance.
The silhouette (solid filled) jumping horses inside of the art deco circle design will lend to a bold look and added depth for embroidery. The inspiration and ideas for this unique art deco hunter/jumper logo came in part from Oak Hill Equestrian’s love of traditional “Baker Plaid” and we wanted to make sure the logo would stand out well when embroidered on a Baker Sheet, yet kept a modern flair to represent their modern approach to training.
“Jackie was absolutely wonderful to work with. I couldn’t find a logo that I was imagining in my head and after a quick conversation, she brought my vision to life! Great work, easy process and quick turnaround. Can’t recommend more!“

Oak Hill Equestrian is currently working with Warmbloods and OTTBs. Characterized by the open studbook policy, Warmbloods belong to a heavier line of agricultural horses that have athletic bodies and are noted for their calm temperament which makes them trainable for show jumping, hunting and are bred with the aim for equestrian competitions. Best Warmbloods include Hanoverian, Selle Francais, Holsteiner, Dutch Warmblood, Oldenburg and Trakehner that is a purebred.
Originating from 17th and 18th century England and best known for horse racing, OTTB are sometimes referred as Thoroughbred Breeds. Dark in shades, chiseled head, long neck, deep chest, short back, good hindquarters, high withers and long legs, Thoroughbred horses are agile, fast, swift, and bold and they perform with topmost exertion, hence it is crucial that they are guided and trained for hunting, show jumping, polo and fox hunting with a dog or team of dogs. OTTBs have also been used for cross breeding to create enhanced breeds such as Quarter horses, Anglo Arabian, Warmbloods and Standardbreds.
