    Again, thank you so much everyone! You're all very kind.

    The boots are Der Daus, off the rack from Manhattan Saddlery a few years ago. They were hugely discounted from where I thought boots like this should be priced, so I took a risk and ordered them sight unseen, never having tried on a pair of DD's in my life. Lucky for me, they fit pretty darn well!

    I would dearly love to have it now.

    That is a stunning coat and perfectly in tune with H/J fashion today - as best I can tell from the catalogs.
    OMG!!! And here I thought I was the only one on earth who ever had a madras riding jacket (it was hideous) . . .

    As everyone already stated, it is a classic look, I love it, all it needs now are the rust breeches. And that's a beautiful horse too, what an elegant pair you make.

    Thank you again everyone. I really didn't expect such a great reaction!

    Janeway - Fred has posted below me, as I managed to mix up poor Tea's breeding quite nicely... I was thinking too hard to try to figure out whether I knew Cricket's name, and got poor Landslide's name wrong. I really should leave the bloodline clarification to you Fred!

    Thumbs up

    You both look gorgeous, and the boots and jacket are perfect!!

    Thank you too for the kind comments about Small Change's mare.
    I love this filly, and am so happy she has such a wonderful home, with such a terrific person. I could not be happier.
    I am pleased to be your Pony Godmother, Steph.

    Just a small correction on the breeding. Tea is by the AHHA and Verband approved Holsteiner stallion Landslide (Landgraf), and out of the TB mare Devon Girl aka Cricket (Brave Shot/Two Bitter/Pluck).

    Cricket is A Fine Romance's big, bossy, older - FULL sister.

    As well as being of great sentimental value, I really do like the look. The horse is beautiful, turnout great.

    One thing, you will be seen by the judge insted of being in the mostest uniform of the day.

    Once he notices that outfit (horse and you) he will remember - in a positive way we hope!

    Now, I wish hacking jackets would return to favour. Mine is still hanging in the closet...but I would feel as if I should lbe riding in Rotten Row wearing it.

    Small Change: Tell us about your boots, if you would, please. What brand and what exact color do they call it. They are gorgeous. As are you and the mare !

    sonomacounty - Thank you very much! They're off-the-rack Der Dau's from Manhattan Saddlery. I was told that shop had a batch made, and I managed to get them deeply discounted about two years ago. They started out a brighter, flat brown, but I put one coat of black polish on them initially, and have since been polishing them with a dark brown Kiwi polish to made them a deeper, richer colour. As far as I can tell, they're the regular field boot in a Newmarket leather. I'll check inside the boots later tonight and see if there's anything more stamped inside them.

I can't believe I actually own a horse like this, and it's all due to my wonderful "pony godmother," Fred.
    This, combined with the picture of you smooching Tea, made me weepy (in a good way!). I lost my own "heart horse" last year and one hasn't yet come along to fill my heart again--but I know it will happen in time!

    Love the jacket and the boots, and another vote for rust!
