    Default Hunter / Jumper Trends

    So i have a few questions!
    First, I love the look of the GPA Speed Air and definetley want to get it! Until i heard it cracked on an olympian sponsored by them... What are your thoughts?
    Next I recentley bought a pair of Sergio Grasso feild boots... was it a mistake? They're are great but i show competitivley on the AA cuircut and im stick thin, 97-100lb and 5"5' 5'6" ish!
    What about show shirts?
    belts: whats a great wide belt for tailored sprotsmans? i want the hermes but its a tad bit expensive! any stylish statement(conservitively) belts i may want to look into?
    FInally, what are all the trends for the now? Im getting a whole new riding wardrobe
    thanks!

    Cheval belt and show shirt for sure!!!
    I want a GPA as well but hadn't heard about it cracking. I'd probably still get it. Better the helmet crack than the persons head, right?
    It would depend on how the Sergio's fit. If they're too short at all then that's no good. A lot of people have been talking about Tucci's and Parlanti's on here lately.

    How can you show the A circuit and not see what trends are out there? Sorry, but I just think that's a bit beyond belief...

    Anyways, pretty much everyone is going with white wrap collar shirts (love Ece shirts... so much that they sponsor me ), euroseat breeches, and soft shell coats. TS make belts to go with their breeches so you could look at those, although I personally find them unattractive. Just keep the boots you have if they fit well, nobody reads the labels on them...
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    I can think of a few trends right off the bat.

    - Good riding.
    - Well-cared for horses.
    - Well-fitted attire. Realistically, if your stuff fits and looks appropriate (i.e. traditional colors), no one cares what label is on it.

    Your riding is more important than the brand on your belt.

    Helmets are out. Sombreros are in. But you have to bling the sombrero, it cannot be anything less than covered in crystals.

    Riding is out. HJ Style Parelli is in.

    Better the helmet crack then the skull. The older you are, the less style matters. Tho the "diaper" look of some of the breeches in my age group (olders/oldest) are unnecessary. Buy yourselves pants that fit! You're worth it! Boots need to be tall super tall and polished with a fitted ankle and calf. I think there are more choices for short people than for us taller ones. Wear a jacket that covers you enuf so that we don't have to stare at your crotch over the jumps. And wear a thong. If ya haven't, now's the time. Try Hanky Panky brand.

    Better yet.... what is NOT trendy: panty lines, muffin tops, camel toes, loose collars, dirty clothes, bling of any kind, crappy saddles and bridles and dirty horses.

    You all are really off, I believe the sombrero is out of fashion now, all you see lately are black blingy fedoras!

    Anyone who is driving to WEF from up north could probably stop in at South of the Border on Rt. 95 and get whatever sombrero your heart desires.

    Not to mention all the bling and illegal fireworks you could possibly need to go with it.
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    Only if you match it to your horse's boots.
