I can see it looking great on a Friesian, otherwise NO

Fringe just gives me the willies. I couldn't even get into it growing up in a hunter barn where the style was the have full chaps with fringe.

I think it would be more for the spanish and portuguese 'dressage' saddles. And more appropriate for a parade, High School Dressage show or something similar.
And from the measurements, it would run pretty big underneath my saddle.

That's not bling, that's just frilly garbage. Ewwww.... (Bling glitters. This just flops around.)

Ok the Western Princess in me squeed in delight however I am positive Supermodel would pin her ears at such garishness. She barely tolerated the DD's purple camo pad... She actually has decent fashion sense.

I'm picturing the reactions I saw from horses when kids first rode bareback in fringed chaps in 4-H. Bronc time! Apparently, fringe tickles.

Not my thing at all. If someone else loves it, more power to them!

Knowing my luck, my horse would flip out at the "flies" on her flanks. :lol:
Actually that's not nearly as bad as I thought it would be from the description, but it's not for me.

Love the swallowtail shape, but fringe doesn't belong anywhere except of "Dancing with the Stars" :no:
throw some rhinestones on the trim instead of fringe and i'd rock it.

Thumbs down - take off the fringe and it would be OK.

YUCK.
My very conservative UL event trainer would have an absolute cow!! He already hates my blue and yellow colors.

Speaking of blue and yellow....if anyone knows of someplace I can find a white dressage pad with blue and yellow piping and trim it would be great!! I don't know if I want yellow trim and blue piping or vice versa though. Needs to be royal blue and prefer actual yellow instead of gold if possible.

But NO FRINGE!! ;-)

There should be a warning on that pad that says "For Baroque Horses With Flowing Manes Only Please!" :lol:

I think the fringe is a bit much.

Love the "flops" comment. :lol:

And, at $109+, it's even uglier. A mere pretender to the bling!

I prefer subtle bling like this one:

(Although I would never own something bling-y for my horse, I love everything else in the world sparkly lol.)

mmmm.....yes, I envison doing a Friesian freestyle with a red, gold laced jacket, shako with a plume, plume on the horse's head, using a majorette's baton instead of dressage whip, all to the soundtrack from The Music Man ("76 trombones went the big parade.....). ROFLOL

My trainer and one of her clients were discussing doing a Friesian cross pas de deux. I can see it. :lol:

Rats, wish they'd had those around when my older kids were using our Arab for homecoming parades/football games (had to dress kid and horse up in Alexander the Great getup due to school mascot...no the school refused to supply horse's getup).

Of course, I wouldn't have wanted to pay a hundred bucks for it -- but it would have given me an even better idea than the one I had....drat!

All for it. Perhaps not in a show but looks like it could be fun. Wonder if it helps the look of movement?

Unless I am doing a baroque demo or trying to dress up like a Knight with all my armour etc........ but otherwise I would not even think about it.

Um, maybe if I were still doing parades on a regular basis. But even then, not for THAT price!

Only if the rider is wearing pasties and a jewel in the navel.

Otherwise, no.

I would never wear fringe - why would I make my horse wear it??

I could buy a $30 saddle pad and sew $10 worth of trim on it...$60 profit!

Absolutely hideous. I don't like the look of swallowtail pads to begin with, but this is just common and vulgar. :dead:
