The Burnished Horse Signature Pieces

London 2012 bracelet

Woven into the 2012 bracelet is the story of four extraordinary horses who won show jumping gold at the 2012 London Olympic Games:

  • Hello Sanctos, ridden by Scott Brash

  • Vindicat, ridden by Peter Charles

  • Tripple X, ridden by Ben Maher

  • Big Star, ridden by Nick Skelton

The design is Brocade: Gilt-edged and was created by combining the longest strands of tail hair from each of the four 2012 gold winning horses to weave a smooth ribbon band, edged with real gold thread. 


A hallmarked clasp of burnished gold and a golden ring chain - both 9 carat - complement the dark horse hair and celebrate the ultimate Olympic win. A limited edition of just five bracelets, each one has a tiny gold tag on one side of which is engraved "2012" and on the other the edition number "1/5", "2/5". The presentation box contains a certificate of authenticity bearing the signatures of the four riders.

The 2012 bracelet was auctioned to raise funds for Ebony Horse Club, a community riding centre based in Brixton, south London, one of the most disadvantaged inner city neighbourhoods in the UK. For more about Ebony's work visit

The project was the idea of top British show jumper, Yazmin Pinchen, as a unique way of giving back. Yazmin rides at 5* level and represents Britain in the Nations Cup. For information about Yazmin and her charity project, see or www.facebook/yazshowjumper
