Who is SP RHODES?
Our mission has consistently been centered around enhancing accessibility for customers seeking customized, high-quality equestrian products that offer superior performance. We are innovators at the forefront, persistently striving to refine the ordinary into extraordinary. Our commitment lies in transforming everyday objects into superior quality products that stand out in performance and design.
The underpinning of our products is our commitment to outstanding creative services and technology.
SP RHODES operates across three distinct, specialized divisions:
- Professional equestrian creative services. We operate a comprehensive design studio, meticulously staffed with uniquely skilled creative professionals. Our designers possess comprehensive knowledge about equine conformation, breed types, disciplines, and equipment. To establish a distinct identity for new brands and move away from conventional horse designs, we actively foster a creative environment where our design team is encouraged to infuse their work with their unique perspectives and individuality.
- Direct-to-Consumer Retail. Our website features over 500 different products that can be fully customized with your logo. We specialize in laser engraving and commercial quality embroidery using the latest technology to ensure beautiful results.
- Consulting. The growth of our business is testament to our strategic approach. Our executive team are not only horse lovers. We are led by disruptive strategists, MIT-educated technologists, software engineers and luxury retail superstars.
We firmly believe in empowering all riders with access to beautiful equestrian items that enrich their equestrian experience. We also recognize that equestrian businesses, regardless of their size, require a knowledgeable resource to facilitate their growth within the equestrian industry. At SP RHODES, we proudly embody that resource.
SP RHODES is all about equestrian lifestyle and systematic branding.
Our logo, the king from chess, is a symbol of leadership and strategy. Much like the king in a chess game, your brand is crucial, and it needs careful planning and protection.
We use this symbol to highlight the importance of a well-planned equestrian brand strategy. Our goal is to enhance your equestrian brand to promote growth and success. Our icon, Chester, is displayed on all our products as a sign of our commitment to your brand’s thoughtful development and success.
The SP RHODES wordmark features an incomplete letter “O” that has been inspired by an ensō (“circular form”; a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to allow creativity).
It also represents the idea that equestrian branding is never complete; it is infinite, it is ever-evolving and exists in a continuum.
There will always be gaps in this continuum and it is both your job and ours to recognize where we can bridge these gaps through thoughtfully inspired brand implementation.
WHY CHOOSE SP RHODES ?
We Have Experience
We’re a team steeped in luxury athletics and creative agency culture. Our advisory board includes equestrian professionals worldwide, along with accomplished apparel industry leaders, lawyers, accountants, and creatives. Our executive team brings second-career entrepreneurs with a keen interest in equestrian sports and a rich history in luxury sporting apparel. This passion ignited our European connections and deepened our understanding of technical fabrics and fit. Leveraging this knowledge, we’ve been able to innovate and develop superior equestrian apparel options that meet our standards of fit, functionality, and style.
We Are Innovators
With our combined skills, we dare to change how things are traditionally done in our industry. Our goal is to make products so good, you won’t want to go back to the old ones. We introduce fresh, better ways for equestrians to shop. We are not just workers, but brand planners too. We focus on making things better through high quality and thoughtful design, all to benefit the equestrian world.
We Aim to Be Inclusive
We love luxury, but we know that the equestrian lifestyle can be expensive. We always keep affordability in mind, aiming to deliver quality equestrian experiences to riders everywhere. Whether it’s a young girl in Idaho wanting a good brush set or a global company aiming to give their clients a top-notch equestrian experience, we care about all. We believe that being exclusive shouldn’t mean being less inclusive.
