    Considering I'm not into classical, tradition-keeping attire, internationally, I like Malin Baryard-Johnsson. She's always wearing something new and cutting edge extravagant. She even poses as a model at times...
    This is copied from her profile on the FEI Alltech Games website

    OTHER ACTIVITIES
    She agreed a partnership deal with Swedish clothing company H&M in 1996. As part of the sponsorship agreement, she models the company's new ranges. Fellow Swedish show jumper Peder Fredricson also signed with H&M in 2003 and the pair model the ranges together. She also does television work [including hosting her own show], appears in films, is a gold disc-winning singer and owns a restaurant. "It seems to be an awful lot," she said. "But that's exactly how I want it, I love trying out new things. I have to have new things going on around me, that's what I thrive on." (H&M, 03 Dec 2007)

    LATEST STYLES
    In association with H&M, she has helped their designers come up with a steady stream of equestrian jackets that follow the latest styles. "I got tired of our old riding fashions that have looked the same for a hundred years, " she said. "After horses, fashion is my main interest." (H&M, 03 Dec 2007)

    Default In terms of what?

    Are we talking sartorial style? If so, then the Europeans, particularly the French. For example, I just spent waaaaaayyy more money on a show jacket and a show shirt than I ever would have considered, because of how they looked on Penelope Leprevost. Meredith Michaels Beerbaum is creating a lot of positive noise with the brown boots she wore recently at Le Saut Hermes in Paris.

    If we're talking horse related style and accessories, and the american consumer, then I would think of those bastions of style from the Old Guard -- think the old horsey families in the horsey enclaves of the Hamptons, Upperville, Devon...

    Depends on what kind of style and the market, really.

    We removed the cross-posts of this topic into multiple forums and moved the thread here to Off Course, which crosses over amongst disciplines.

    Thanks!

    Gucci sponsors Edwina Alexander, and my oh my have they given her a divine wardrobe. And the horses in their Gucci ear nets look great too.

    I've been admiring Ludger's pics in the recent Dover's catalogues.

    I agree with Coreene, Edwina's wardrobe is AMAZING:

    Good grief, Edwina wins the best dressed award by a mile! Although, personally, I LOVE the look of the new Animo stuff. It's quite unique.

    Haha, I love the part at the end... "What she really meant to say is, "I WEARING GUCCI, B!TCH!""
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.
