    Default Katie Price/Jordan -- that's quite the dressage coat...

    Oy. I agree with the commenter who noted that the bling makes her look like a circus ringmaster.

    WOW I have to agree with this comment found under that picture.

    ... I always get the feeling that she probably has Max Factor sit on her face every morning. That or someone who really hates her does her make up.
    Doesn't all that glitz and glam distract form her overall accomplishments?

    agree. ew. I love a little bling here and there, but never like that. or in a show. or on a coat.

    I think the "bling" is because it was some sort of exhibition; she was doing a kur with two other riders and there are purple spotlights so....I'll give her a pass on the bling...this time.

    I can overlook the bling... it's not so uncommon anymore. But I have just one word for someone competing at a level that allows for tophat and tails as well as the double bridle.... HAIRNET. Flopping bangs just make riders look silly, I don't care how "famous" they are in real life.

    Perhaps not bareback...but topless?
    I don't see no stock tie under that coat!

    Last time someone posted pics of this gal - not that long ago - she was showing training/1st level on a schoolmaster (the pictured horse I believe). She must learn fast - already wearing a cutaway and riding with a double? LOL

    I like Katie/Jordan.

    When you take away the bling and implants, this is working-class girl who loves horses and wants to keep the horse dream alive in kids who grow up without money and connections. She parlayed her best-selling bio into a contract for a line of horse-and-pony care books for kids. How cool is that?

    Dang, if I looked that good, I'd tell y'all jealous hags to kiss my perfect, cellulite-free butt!

    It's STAGE makeup, people. It has to be thick, or her face would be just a blur down in the arena.

    Haven't any of you ever attended a breed Nationals? All of the women riders have on thick makeup like that.

    I like the bling. A lot. I'm getting tacky as I get older, apparently!

    I just LOVE it. But then, I love bling.

    Edward Gal has a shad he wears when he rides his sponsor Moorlands' horses, which is three buttons across instead of two. Looks super.

    It's not that bad.

    It's very clearly an exhibition shot, with the bright spot, the hairstyle, and the stage makeup.

    I think it looks snazzy. Not show-worthy, but still. Pretty spiffy.

    Default umm

    guys, its a demonstration done under lights at the horse of the year show - purely a display to draw in the general public and show them a bit of bling (and boobs?!).

    Katie rides 1st level, and doesn't normally wear the pancake face but as someone just said, it is theatre make up for night time under lights!

    Oh,and I LOVE her bandages with the sparkles - where can I get some?!!!!!!!

    We need some riders like her here in the US. I bet it would get more of us men involved in Dressage/Hunter Jumpers or at the very least lengthen our involvement.

    hell it's an exibition i wish i looked that good up there.

    Yes she showed the equiv of first level earlier this year... i've seen vid's of her ride though and she's a pretty competant rider and has been riding for years- (IE i think she rides better then ME)

    I like her.... watched her TV show a few times- she's super sweet with her kids, and sems pretty down to earth... and really loves her horses!
