What do YOU think of ALTERNATIVE Jacket Colors in Dressage?
Would you go out on a limb and wear an ALTERNATIVE jacket color into the recognized dressage ring?
Under what circumstances?
Which is better/more breathable: new wool (what I have, seems very HOT!) or poly? How about those washable coats?
How about alternative fits? A super short coat? Or the faux shad-bellies? (or are these reserved for the under 30 years old crowd? Those are kind of pricey anyway...)
I need a new dressage coat (if I can sell my old ones)...so I'm considering going out on a limb...then again, maybe not (don't want to be mocked/scorned)! Help me decide! I have 2 bay geldings (one blood bay, the other between medium and dark bay--depends on season--showing 2nd this year, maybe (in our dreams?) 3rd level next Spring?, 5'11" 130 lbs)! I'm leanin' towards a Pikeur black pinstripe if I can find one for under $200--the photo below is actually brown, and I don't have money for the off-white ensemble...need to stick with white as the backdrop!
Nice mobilehrs...we want pix!!!
OOOOO, mobilehrs, that's what I'm coveting deep down...the brown one. I posted the link at the top. Do you have to wear the champagne ensemble underneath, or could you wear white under the brown?
Fashionistas? What do we think? Brown coat on a bay horse with strawberry blonde rider/relatively fair skinned, but with some pigment. black boots, black helmet, white underneath (pants/shirt/stock) ;) ?
...maybe I should cross post under the hunter thread ;)?
