    Aw, but he's ENTITLED TO! I have to say, if I earned a red coat (or hunt colors) I'd ALWAYS wear them. But again, only if I earned them (and impossibility for me, but I understand why someone who earns one is proud and wants to wear the coat).

    And, whats with the clown gloves?

    And why do I want to put both hands on the bottom of the coat and PULL it down another 3"?

    I have no animus against Animo. But I hope they are not successful in making their garmets popular.

    They seem to be extremely popular in Europe. I been watching the Global Championship Series and The Gucci Cup and many of the riders are wearing all kinds of Amino coats in all different colors. I also noticed that some of the female riders where their hair in a pony tail, not up in their helmet and none wear hairnets. Amino sponsors many riders too. My daughter was given a navy blue Animo coat by a client and she looks great in it. It seems like fashions in Europe seem to make their way to the US and Canada and start becoming popular. If I was the OP, I would sell it on Ebay in the UK or another European site. Or keep it and wear it for fashion and see if it becomes popular here. You never know.

    Animo was all over the shows up here this year........and my feeling: "for goodness sake even the skinny minnies (the only ones that actually fit into them) look like they were stuffed too tight in them". Blech.........jackets should flatter NOT make you look like you are being sliced up from them! They are also just way short.....they make my eyes bleed! And lets's not even get started on how expensive they are!

    My prediction-- this is going to be like the "bling" trend. Remember that year when EVERYONE had to put rhinestones down the strip of their GPA, bling up their cell phone, and wear a Kippy belt. And then a year or so later nobody would be caught dead within 10 feet of a sparkle? Yeah. I think this is the resurgance of the need-for-bling. I hope, personally, it dies a quick death. Those jackets are UNFLATTERING.

    Just to clarify, that rule applies to countries that use red jackets for such things. While I'm not sure a Dutch, Brazilian or French rider would wear red, it wouldn't mean they represented their country if they did.

    I'm guessing the Dutch don't have the problem of riders overusing the orange jackets Some colours are wearable... and some..

    I know this thread is about jumpers, but I remember way back when (70s, 80s) when red coats were fine in the Hunter Classics. Nobody wore shadbellies unless it was a really big show (indoors, etc), but red coats were 'in' for the big hunter classes. But then again, it was more like field hunters then.

    Red coats in a hunter classic would still be fine, if it were being worn by a hunt member who'd earned their colors.

    I've got a red riding coat, bought as a sample sale for a ridiculous steal. I bought it with absolutely no intention of ever wearing it on my horse, except perhaps for a holiday picture. I have, however, worn it to work and to Christmas dinner.

    I think it looks like she forgot her coat at home and all anyone had was a little kid's sweatshirt so they said "oh hell" and in she went. It is WAY too tight, way too short, and way too small. And she's a slim person. I don't understand WHO thinks this LOOKS GOOD? In what universe?!

    I've seen so many trends come and go over the years. This one will die too. On to the next!

    Animo jackets do not flatter fuller figured girls but, even so, those girls still like to try and stuff themselves into the jackets for some reason. I don't know about any of you but I wouldn't be caught dead in the show ring with a muffin top bulging through my riding jacket.

    The advantage to that coat is that if it's a foggy day, the sun is setting, and visibility is poor, the judge will still be able to pick you out in the gloom.

    There is a girl that wears a pink jacket it the pony jumpers. She also shows in th Child/Adult sometimes. At first it was something that made you look twice but honestly, she's neat and clean and not scary to watch so I don't even think about the color anymore.

    How bad do the Animo coats look if you go up a size or two?

    They don't flatter anyone, to be honest. That girl in the pink coat is a very slim, pretty looking girl and she looks like the jacket will need to be surgically removed?!
