Well, I can let you know when the Americans swarm in en masse for Spruce Meadows this year. They're always the ones who seem to have the newest and the latest. Last year, I was shocked to see that there was some sort of bejeweled spur plate trend happening. This was very intriguing to me, as I was standing at the in-gate, wearing two spurs with very different straps (one leather, one...not. It wasn't baling twine or anything, but it certainly didn't match its partner http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif).

Cheers,

Here's what's popular around here (zone 2... and at WEF this winter)
<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Coolmax shirts
<LI>Monogramming your collar with a little picture (but this was really only the juniors)
<LI>Dark jackets (as in navy, but that's pretty classic)
<LI>Light shirts
<LI>Stripes on your helmet
<LI>Pikeur breeches (they look just like TS when they are on, but they fit some people much better)[/list]
That's all I can think of right now...

Count me among the gauche American crowd. I am sooooo saving my $ for a pair of the bejeweled spurs! I believe the sapphire ones have my name written (or is that engraved?) all over them.

Other trends?
1.NO monogramming on chokers
2.Coats in all shades of gray
3.The return of pastel, checked and pinstriped shirts

I second Kachoo for that! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I was fascinated by those spur thingies.....I'd be worried about getting the things dirty!! I'm just happy if all my hair stays up under my helmet (that is the extent of my fashion sense)

Now see, I go to the opposite extreme: I'd have to make sure I was wearing sapphire and white gold earrings to match my sapphire and stainless steel bejeweled spurs. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/lol.gif

Hmmmm.... I suppose at some point I should concentrate on my riding...

That's a trend? I've been wearing sterling spurs with engraving and jewels for years..and have the "jingles" so they go "ka-chink" when I walk...oh, guess that's when I ride western. Well maybe I'll put them on next hunter show and give everyone something to talk about (hehe http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/lol.gif). Actually I still like the silver spur strap buckles. Wish they'd do something about the shirts..very boring.

Oooh! Good one! I forgot about the new bright linings that are coordinated to go with the subtle stripes or windowpane checks in the huntcoats. I've seen burnt orange, purple, royal blue and yes, burgundy linings. Of course, that was mostly on display, but I'll bet someone will be brave.

Spur straps: I know you can get them from Mary's Tack in Del Mar, Calif. And they have a website. However, I had a hard time getting the silver tip end through the slots in my spurs. I suppose you have to what? Crimp the silver with a pair of pliers?

I have to confess that I'd buy the fancy spurs.. not the stirrups, just the spurs. I think they are cute. I learned the hard way early on that the only thing that wearing spurs gets you with my jumper is dirt... after he bucks you off. My hunter gets snarky in any spurs but the kind with the rubber balls on the ends. I LOVE those! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I want one of the jackets with the fun linings. They sound nifty.

Just a thought but JennyOZ is also charging for her TIME. Alot of effort goes into making those helmets, and if its your business, then TIME IS MONEY. Indy is correct on costs and isn't charging for her time would be my guess. Indy, I think yours look great. And BenRidin', GROW UP, don't be so snarky, and I'm sure you are just the coolest of the cool in Florida so don't you worry. Run to Burberry and buy some fabric before someone beats you to it.

I really like the look of all the new gray jackets, but I have one small problem...I think they look absolutely horrid with the puke green breeches. Even with a lighter tan, I'm not crazy about them.
Soooo...
I was thinking of getting one and wearing it with grey breeches. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/uhoh.gif Will lightning strike me? Will people laugh and point? Will my horse refuse to unload from the trailer for fear of being made fun of?
I know I should grow up and not care. I am an adult after all. And besides, the one I'm thinking of ordering is a medium gray with lighter gray windowpane pattern, and it would match a light gray pair of breeches perfectly.
Maybe if I put big enough swarovski crystals on my helmet and if I have bright enough rhinestones on my spurs people won't notice...

Newsflash - those studded helmets are hiddy (hideous). The fabric on the helmets is hiddy. The spurs are hiddy. Both are fine for schooling, but c'mon - 99% of the kids wearing that crap don't have the personality to back it up (which, from the looks, would either be be trailer trash or really cool, fun and unique - if everyone is doing it it looses its uniqueness factor...)! I do like the lining on the hunt coats, though - much more subtle than all the rest of the "trends".

Yes, people do notice the lining of your huntcoat, especially if it cleverly matches your shirt. Only problem is, you're kinda stuck wearing just that color of shirt or a closely coordinated one.

I was shopping for a western snaffle for my reining filly and there's an entire line of Snaffle Bit Futurity snaffles with really cool engravings and studded embellishments on the snaffle rings. I kept thinking, "Wouldn't my hunter mare just look smashing in one of THOSE snaffles!"

This is just cracking me up! Between Florida & California how must the rest of us keep up?? The GPA stripe did not really catch on here in Canada after we came back sporting ours fresh from Cali. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif People laughed - others just shook their head - that was a year ago. NOW of course that we've sported it long enough and the trend is long since pasted our fellow comrads are offering to "pay" us to stripe their helments. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/sigh.gif AHHH we are so behind. We JUST caught wind of the studding from Indio and are of course the first ones to test it out. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif But now fabric?? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif I am loosing my mind trying to keep up to you Americans.

Okay, I buy my Swarovski rhinestones for about $30 bucks (depending on the color) for 1500 of them, that is cheap. But they are a lot smaller than Little Indians, so they take up less room and therefore need more of them.

I charge for the rhinestones and my time. Jenny is not making THAT HUGE of a profit on those helmets, she uses about the same size stones as I do, and it takes me at least 5 hours to finish a helmet.

That said, stop being snarky, BenRidin.

DId you do those all yourself? How long did it take you? Sorry, I was under the impression that the crystals would cost a lot more than that.. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/uhoh.gif
But Jenny also has two girls working for her in NY that do the helmets for her because she does not have enough time to stud all those helmets herself. So not only does she have to pay them but there is also the overnighting that she has to pay for. She really is not making a big profit at all.

What about coat colors? It's time to add to my collection of one navy hunt coat (which I think is just about old enough to vote). My mare is chestnut with white markings, and I was thinking of brown. I'm not that crazy about gray (I think it looks nice on others, but it's really not my color), but maybe a bluish gray? I saw a slate blue coat that would look nice but I think it was a discontinued color - any thoughts? I am just getting back into showing after a long hiatus so any advice is appreciated!

Little Indian, that pattern came out nice.

Cassiopeia,, there are a lot of different shades of gray, and also lots of different pinstriping in the jackets which make a huge difference. I suggest just going to your fav tac shop and going with whatever catches your eye and looks good on you. I never go out and say "ok I want this color" I see what colors they have in my size and pic my favorite and I have been really happy with my jacket collection.
ps-Slate gray is my fav on chestnuts.

Don't forget to factor in overhead if you're trying to figure out how much profit Jenny is making. The least expensive vendor space at WEF is $950.00 per week. That means the first 3-4 studded GPA's that she does each week just cover her rent.

ROTFL choking over Kachoo's comment. Really, it does often pay to be a Canadian. No silly trends. Although I do admit to having bought **gorgeous** light greyish brown fabric with faint coloured 'squares' or maybe 'plaid' for a jacket. I can't recall the colours, though, maybe blue? grey? yellow? green? . I've been meaning to make it for ages, now.

Jenny's helmet's are works of art. They are very expensive yes, but the time it takes to place each crystal on the helmets is about 10 to 12 hours depending on the design. I have spoken to Jenny many times about the helmets, we're waiting for my daughters to be sent to us. I had to replace some crystals on my daughters phone and it about makes you crosseyed placing those itty bitty stones. The Crystals themselves are not that expensive it's the time of the labor. The helmets that people are doing themselves look nothing like the one's done by Jenny'Z.

Well, I sure can't keep up. I'm very grateful for the return of the grey jacket, mine is nearly 20 years old, but I and SO embarrassed that it has a tasteful grey lining. Maybe I should dye it? And the helmets, My GOd, the helmets, dig a hole and put me in it, if I
EVER put one of those on my venerable traditional head. They have got to be the most trailer-trashy things I've ever seen. I will stick to my traditional look, thankyou. I don't need to have the attention focused on me, I'ld rather have people's eyes on my horse.

I guess I am a little out of the loop. I don't have a GPA, and don't like the way they look OR fit. I DEFINITELY don't like the crazy color studded stuff. Also, what's the difference between these Swawovski crystals and plain old rhinestones? They look the same to me. And by same I mean more than a little tacky. I will say if you are going to buy one of those glittery things, at least get them from JennyOz or learn how to do it properly yourself- they definitely look better artistically than any others I've seen.

OK, but I have seen some of those spurs and they are really pretty. At least those aren't blinding, or even visible when riding. I wouldn't buy any with actual jewels, but hell, maybe I'll buy some Swa-whoosey-whatsit crystals and glue em on my spurs. Ooooh.

I guess I will always be hopelessly outdated. I can't believe the kind of money people spend trying to follow every trend every year. Spend it on some more lessons, then you won't need bling to stand out.

I do like some of the beautiful new colors and coats showing up- BEAUTIFUL! And the kind with the lining sound lovely- very understated.

I just spit soda all over my keyboard as your post brought up a fond memory of my mother trying to glue one of my Breyer horses legs back on. She glued the horse to the kitchen counter, his leg to her fingers, and her fingers stuck together. I can still faintly hear her screaming "GO GET MY NAIL POLISH REMOVER", and then the look of panic when we couldn't find it. I don't think my dad ever drove that fast to the grocery store in his life.

Also, that Western website someone posted is great- holy smokes! $800 for a blouse! Actually reminds me of my mom. She is much more a fashionista than I (not tough to do, obviously, but still), and she used to always say that if she ever had to ride horses she would ride Western so she could wear all those "cool clothes". She is not an animal person, so I never had to be embarassed, but now at age 67 she is thinking about taking Western lessons in the spring!!

We had stripes and two rows of small silver crystals put on my dtr's GPA in Sept for $100 at Ky Nat'l. Those two rows took them about 2-3 hours. Also saw the GP riders there sporting the CO "gpa"-hat. Ick. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/dead.gif


And last summer, we had liners put into her two coats - burgundy into a dark brown gp by a local tailor, and silver blue into her new navy jacket (Marigold added colored liner for an additional $5 when we ordered the jacket).

Can't think of a trend I'd dislike more than designer cloth on GPAs. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/dead.gif Well, okay, velvet collars come close. http://chronicleforums.com/images/custom_smilies/dead.gif

dcm, when I was a junior, in the late '70's http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif the favorite coat was a navy Pytchley with red lining, single vent, with gold fox-head buttons and velvet collars -- I swear! We all had them in navy and hunter green (that coat had gold lining).

If you look at GM's books, you see the women wearing many a velvet collar -- very classic look! I hope they make a comeback -- I would be having velvet put on ONE of my navy coats, and my black one! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

WOW, and my mom thought it would be cool if she bought me a pair of Pikeur full seat riding breeches and Yes that would be okay but they are this cool plaid color, haha I'm not sure what style of riding uses this pattern but yes, I'm excited to wear them at the next rated show. (Jumpers of course!)

Also jackets with the velvet collar and the piping, I &lt;3 mine, It's not anything abnormal but the inside is lined with a cool peachy color.

CJ Laing belts, they OWN. Let's say I'm addicted.
