I've seen pictures of a brown, zip up hunt coat she wears competing - I may be out of the loop, but what brand is this? Are they popular? I tend to be a real conservative hunter girl, but it looks lovely on her, and I'm intrigued!

Maybe this? In a different color?

I don't think it's zip up? Looks like a softshell Grand Prix.

It's smashing on her, the color really suits her. Looks like she's showing mainly in the jumpers though.

This one?

I really like it too. It fits her perfectly, so maybe it's a custom?

It is a GPA coat - here is the photo:

Scroll down to her photo - you can see GPA on the sleeve.

That's the one! It's brown, with a zipper, and fits beautifully. Is anyone wearing it here in the states?

Amira Equi in the UK stocks them (GPA Ladies Trophy II) - I believe that they will ship to the US... Gorgeous for the jumpers!:)

I TOTALLY dislike the mostly European trend toward UBER short coats. Some are barely longer than waist length. FUGLY, IMHO.

I don't know but I absolutely love her look, very clean and tidy!

i love her style! Saw her on the sidelines at a world cup round and she was wearing a very stylish cap sleeve show shirt. Saw one that looked similar at Bevals and darned if my credit card wasn't out before i knew what hit me. Funny thing is penelope and i do not exactly have similar body tops, if you get my drift. LOL I don't care, it looks good and is very cool in the hot weather, tough I normally would never pay that much for a shirt!
What models in libraries have to do with horse shows is beyond me, but....

She is a very stylish lady, being French must help, and a great rider. I do like her jacket but I am not so keen on her helmet.

I covet that jacket.

oh I love those shirts! I normally really dislike it when US/Canadian riders dress like the Europeans - I think it just looks sloppy. But I think I, of course, could pull it off:)

ABV169 - what brand is the shirt you got at Beval? I can't find the ECE one's in the states, but I'd love something similar. Just for schooling I think it looks lovely.

Moving onto the rest of the outfit..... Anyone try the GPA breeches? W/ the back pockets and no seams?

Agreed. The "wideness" of that visor just throws the whole balance off. Otherwise I love the whole getup!

LOVE her jacket. And this trend of the more fitted, shorter jackets. I hate seeing a jacket that someone is almost sitting on, I love these. I wouldn't buy that style helmet, but I really like the black and brown together, especially with that jacket.

Oh, never mind, I found the shirts on Beval. Gorgeous, and about $100 more than I could possibly splend on it!

That's the new GPA first lady, it's a more feminine version of the speed air. I'm not a big fan of the first lady visor either, it's too awkward and big.
