    Default Forget Black. Brown is the New Color for Dressage!

    They've been doing dressage in brown in England for ages as far as I know, e.g.--

    BTW, what kind of saddle is that? Looks like poleys. Just HUGE knee blocks?

    Those are thigh blocks. Look likes either a Sommer, a Custom or a Hennig.

    Kassie Barteau wore a latte colored jacket and matching helmet today at Lamplight, and it looked gorgeous with her pretty bay horse. The lighter color was refreshing on a hot summer day.
    Don't wrassle with a hog. You just get dirty, and the hog likes it.

    I love the brown - especially with a chestnut horse. But I don't really like the look of the fabric of the tailcoat in this photo.

    Lovely!

    I have a brown ancient Kieffer saddle. I want brown boots, brown helmet and a brown coat. But right now I have to settle for black everywhere for me, but brown attire for the horse:

    My grays and Bays look good with black. In my next life with a chestnut, I'll change.

    I have a big chestnut mare and I ride in a brown Animo coat with great highlights. Heather has on a long coat from Animo that is the same color as my short coat. I always get lots of compliments.

    I love that riders are starting to compete in other colors besides black. I have a short, navy coat, altho, not original, it's at least not black... And I always get compliments.

    So, do coats have to be one solid color? Can it be a very subtle print? Just wondering....
