Located in Lester Prairie, Minnesota, Longfield Irish Draughts is a breeder of both Irish Draughts and Irish Sport Horses for use in dressage, fox hunting, and eventing. These versatile horses are not your average draft horse. The creators of this unique breed had a vision of a horse that could work on the farm all week long, spend Saturday following the hounds, and haul the family to church on Sunday. From this vision sprang forth the level-headed, athletic Irish Draught.
When crossed with Thoroughbreds, Warmbloods, Arabians, or other breeds, these horses become known as the Irish Sport Horse-known for being spectacular athletes that are good minded enough to pack an amateur rider on the cross country course, in the show jumping ring, or through a dressage test.
Our artists used the breed’s Irish heritage as inspiration for the Celtic horse design we created for Longfield’s custom logo design. The unique line art design is crowned by the bust of two Irish Draught horses, one in mid-flight over a fence and the other appearing as an elegant dressage horse. The horses are melded together by intertwining Celtic knots, including a four leaf clover for a sprinkle of traditional Irish luck.
We used a custom blend of mixed fonts for the business name in this beautiful Celtic horse design, from a liliting script “L” to an old fashioned serif that further enhances the Gaelic inspired aesthetic of the farm’s original logo. Gold foil and shamrock green colors were used in this stunning design, which will certainly be an awe-inspiring addition to the breeder’s business cards, monogrammed jackets, and horse trailer decals.
