Greetings and salutations. There is some big time nostalgia going on here today. Both of these designs launched Hattingdon Horses, and made them the incredibly popular cartoon horses they became.
Let’s get down to business. Here are Vivian’s selections.
When this hat was created all those many moons ago, neither Vivian nor any of the rest of us had any idea just how cherished the Savannah hat would become. Hattingdon Horses really began with Curtis, Savannah and Star, and of course, Belle. They were our Fab Four in our early years.
The Savannah classic hat is created in the most luscious shade of lipstick pink with three white lilies dancing across the across the front. Simply sweet . . . . adorable.
Then there was Star.
Star Hattingdon wears a black cowboy hat with a blue hatband, and a white star.
Curtis launched Hattingdon Horses and will forever be an icon. However, from the moment of his appearance, Star became a superstar for oh so many years, and is still going strong today.

UPDATE! Seems like December is “logo” month. We reported earlier this year how very happy we were to find a nice, simple, easily identifiable logo for Hattingdon, as we had toiled off and on for years trying to come up something.
We finally came up with this one. Pure and simple. A single letter ‘H”, in Hattingdon’s signature brown and font. But we have a new one, but we are also keeping this one. They work well together. You will what we mean in a few moments. So keep going!
Take a look at this. Remember when we experimented with using the classic hat silhouette as our logo. It was nice but we were still “not there”. I believe we have addressed it at long last, in a wonderful way. What do you think?
We hope you love it as much as we do. It only took us about 10 years or so. Hahahaha!
We will be using both but predominantly the single letter H in Hattingdon Brown. It has really taken off with everybody. Thank you for your input and help. — HH
Mrs Farrell, the creator of Hattingdon® Horses, has made many, many hats for the popular cartoon equines over the years — hundreds of them. Amazingly she never seems to run out of ideas. The ones that are shall we say — a bit “extraordinary” — always seem to be her favourites. Here is an example.
At the beginning of last year, Farrell opened Photoshop, selected one of her basic templates, and began adding layers of lines and boxes and rectangles until she had what you see below.
It has a sort of Deco / Japanese flavor to it, doesn’t it?
Inspired by one of the 2020 summer season’s hottest colours, here’s Hattingdon modeling her most recent hat, done in a gloriously chic saffron yellow, embellished with hand stitching and a fashionably large all white-butterfly. Hattingdon named this new hat Simone. Enjoy!
