    *5 year old short stirrup kids wearing custom boots, or tall boots for that matter.

    *a person wearing a hair net..but hair is flying out everywhere

    *any piece of tack, the horse, or rider, I hate when things are dirty for show!

    I haven't been to A shows in awhile and was at one recently and was kind of schocked to see so many colorful show shirts. (I see some flaming coming for this)But I thought it looked very un-professional and very casual.

    Orange Tack.....blech. Especially on a dark horse, it makes it look like you're sitting on a pumkin.
    I also don't like those baby blue eskadrons & matching baby blue ears & saddle pads. Fine for a pony (with kid riding) but not on a horse.
    And, I think that little kids wearing tall boots is just pretentios.
    OK, flame suit now on. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Eclipse, you are sooo right. I can't stand the orange tack!! Yuck!!

    I hate the bright colored show shirts and the hunt coats with the piping!

    Kids in tall boots is just plain ridiculous. I just think that the kids in their jodphurs and garter straps are just too cute.

    The assortment of different colored hunt coats. I am (and have always been) a traditional navy blue kinda gal!

    My Flame Suit is on
    I hate pony tails coming out of helmets!!! Maggie Jayne's trend w/ the GPA/pony tail tied w/ a ribbon is UGLY.

    I also hate colorful saddle pads. White and white w/ monogram are so much prettier.

    Also, stock pins, short sleeved/sleeveless show shirts, non-properly fitted tall boots, and show bows (cringe) will never be a part of my wardrobe.

    All I want is a helicopter and my own personal Moe's restaurant, but APPARENTLY that's too much to ask for.

    Have to agree with the low rise breeches. Although, if the person is short torsoed and the low rises fit them normally, then fine. But seeing someone ride by a la Brittney Spears is nauseating.
    Tall boots on little tykes. Blech!
    Colored pads, another blech.
    Sparkly hoof polish is a no-go for me, unless you're in a parade or something.
    Still trying to get used to seeing so many color combos in riding apparel. Puke green breeches with a tan jacket with a peach or purple shirt just looks too crazy for me. But then again, I DID wear rust breeches back in the day, LOL!

    Have you noticed that she's wearing it up in her helmet these days? It looks so much better!

    Speaking of GPA's though, I've gotten used to the stripes, but I HATE the rhinestone tatoos and stickers on them!

    OMG JRG are you from NH? Because that happened at my old barn one time too, the poor girl. They were this awful muddy rusty color, and she was also a taller kid who just didn't show often so didn't have tall boots yet. Felt bad but had to laugh to myself a little bit because they looked so hideous. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif

    Oh I love those!! I want a dark grey one with white piping...sooooo pretty!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif
    And I own a hot pink show shirt. Don't worry, I never use it in eq, only in jumpers.

    Pet peeves of mine...
    I hate seeing little short stirrup/small pony kids with GPA's, Tailord Sportsman's (with or without tall boots), and Grand Prix jackets. That's almost $1000 worth of clothes on a 5-year-old. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif

    I also hate it when people wear their huntcoats with their collar unbuttoned. I think that is so tacky.

    Flame Suit is on and waiting, I still have not warmed up to GPA's yes I know it's me verse almost all of the H/J world but I think velvet is sooooooooooo much prettier. Call me old fashioned.

    I'm a major fan of some fairly iffy stuff (ask BaileyBFF about my neon green show shirt collection) but superdark shirts with light jackets... not my thing. I was at a QH show and this girl was wearing a really dark bloodred shirt, with a really light coat. It looked horrible. Ick.

    And, I hate pelham converters, but that's not really fashion.. I just like annoucning that I hate those things.. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Ugh - my number one pet peeve is the ponytail-instead-of-hairnet thing. Yuck. Also agree with orange tack (Hello? I have some neatsfoot oil you can borrow!) and little kids with tall boots.

    Too much sheepskin also irritates me - I mean, I'm all for a sheepskin pad or girth, but some horses walk around wearing more sheepskin than a sheep!

    i dont like the rust pants or the very light jackets, they are just not very flattering. The gpa's i dont mind simply because of the rules, but thank god i dont have to wear one. Colored eskadrons are icky, but my bigggest pet peve is children not only in custom boots that are nicer than mine, but alo in $3,200 custom saddles.It is as if the parents feel that a very expensive saddle will make their kid ride better and it just wont.
