Red, White, Blue And Plenty Of Bling

Oct 11, 2013 - 8:55 AM

Some are subtly patriotic; some are sparkly; some blend in with the horses while others stand out. Browbands can show off the personality of the dressage riders and their horses, and there’s a wide array of them here at the USEF Dressage Festival Of Champions. Here are some of our favorites:

1. Guenter Seidel’s mare Coral Reef Wylea wore silver and gold for the Grand Prix.

2. Her Highness O demonstrated some American pride with Caroline Roffman for the small tour classes.
