    I believe this was for breast cancer awareness week at WEF.

    Not digging the ride. What's up with the flapping elbows and busy hands just before the fences? And those are 2'?

    No sure a darker jacket would have helped, but the ride was a surprise.

    Uncalled for. He's obviously a beginner and certainly did not ask to be critiqued. Let's not pretend we all rode perfectly when we were learning to jump.

    I was a little surprised by the coat, but I actually think it looks kind of nice on a grey.

    Forgive me. I don't know that rider from Adam so I no clue he was a beginner. I certainly can delete my post if you'd like.

    I didn't think he was that bad... The jacket - well, if it want for Breast Cancer Awareness, I'd have more to say. The guy got around, got his spots, good for Pinkie. (At no one in particular).

    OHHHH I didn't realize week 12 was BC awareness week. I thought it was earlier. I believe this was the low adult 2'6 hunters, so yes a beginner class. I actually felt that he rode fairly well. Yes there were distracting things, but everyone is learning and I'm love with his horse!

    As far as the color, kudos to him for doing it!! I wouldn't have the guts to wear it!

    Oh I would so rock that jacket! (There's a reason I don't do hunters...)

    Gotta love a horse that packs adults as well as a good pony packs kids. And while the chicken dance before the fences was interesting that guy needs a pat on the back for not laying on the horse's neck or needing to plant his hands on the neck for support. He has a really nice auto release in the works there.

    I liked the pink with the grey horse. Very well turned out. That's a lovely horse! And if you couldn't tell that was a novice rider from the fence height and the ride style... you better try pulling my other leg. I'm not buying it, seems like you just wanted a reason to be mean.

    What a sweet, lovely horse. It's always a pleasure to see a horse do his job so well.

    I didn't think it was tooooooo bad. But the lining. Is that lime green? Or a yellowish? Yikes...that is a no-no color combination.

    I think it's sweet when men will wear pink for BCA....it was probably tough to find any coat in pink, let alone one with a decent colored lining.

    On a normal day, I would have thought it was odd, but for BCA, I think it's awesome .

    I WANT THAT HORSE.

    No seriously, s/he's perfect. That's EXACTLY what I need for my mother to pack her around the very same class!

    It's the hunters. The man found all of his distances, the horse looked plum pleased for getting his rider safely around, their turn-out was crisp and clean (and the pink coat appropriate for BCA week!) and it looked like a very pleasant ride. I hope they pinned!
    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

    Very nice horse, I want it too! And lovely that he is wearing the pink coat!

    It said under the video they ended up third in the class.

    And looking at the schedule for that show, it was Easter Sunday.

    I love the jacket even more since the rider is a man! Awesome that he rocked the pink jacket for breast cancer awareness.

    Those are 2'6", and seeing as it was the Low Adult Hunters, it makes sense that the rider is an amateur on the novice side.

    Cute horse and seeing as the video is from week 12, this was likely NOT for breast cancer awareness as people said—it was Easter. I think it's sort of a cute look on a grey. Obviously the judges didn't mind.
