About us

Welcome to Dressage by Design at Marlton


Established in 2013 by Collette Ward, a dressage rider with an inimitable flair for style and fashion, DSE Equestrian Outfitters, formerly known as Dressage by Design, is renowned among Ireland's equestrian community as an iconic company that focuses on style and quality for the discerning rider. Individual advice and styling have always been a hallmark of our company.


In March 2018, the company was taken over by Josephine and Barbara Delahoyde and moved to one of Ireland's premier equestrian venues – The Marlton Stud on the outskirts of Wicklow Town.

We are also Ireland's only stockist of the stunning MS Cadence and Opti Jump saddles. Designed and developed by Alan Ward from Saoirse Saddlery and aided by Josephine Delahoyde Dressage, these saddles are quality at an affordable price. Colour trim and Swarovski bling are optional extras and the interchangeable gullet system ensures that one saddle will fit a wide variety of horses and ponies. Fully trained Josephine can fit a demo saddle to your horse, so why not book an appointment and see for yourself why we're all so excited?
