    DT had an article about some riders that a stretching the envelope as far as turnout goes. One girl had blue, alligator boots which I liked. I'm glad to see some fun entering the arena. I don't particularly care for the above posted boots though. They kinda look like plastic. Just a personal choice.

    OK Every on can borrow shirts from The WP. The one's with the sequins and rhinestones..
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Coat looks brown on my computer. I wouldn't run out to buy myself a pair, but I think they are kinda cool for her. Not for every day, though.

    I've got them in black, non-patent, and love them I don't show in them though!

    I saw a pair of matte SILVER boots at Del Mar. I LOVE LOVE LOVE silver. I have a silver parka - Goode Rider I think. It's awesome.

    The price wasn't marked, and I didn't ask. But if I had the money, I'd buy those silver boots. I'd have a silver coat made, get a silver helmet with crystals/rhinestones that seem so popular right now, braid rhinestones into my horse's mane, dye him black, put a huge crystal script "S" on his butt, and rock Training Level 2 at the next schooling show. Now THAT would be fun!

    I also saw some black leather boots there with a patent strip at the top that traced the spanish top. Now those I might actually consider (not really) because they would match horse's patent browband and noseband.

    I love, Love, LOVE them! If I had a pair of boots like that, I'd ride in them all the time and wear them everywhere I could get away with it! To pull it off at shows, however, I think you'd have to be riding successfully at least FEI, if not GP. Anything less would look like a dorky DQ.

    The silver boots, if I remember correctly, were just over $1300. The patent strip, IMO, is very classy since it is not over the top. My trainer just got De Niro's with a brown patent strip around the top because she is planning on getting a brown shadbelly and helmet in the near future. However, her boots still look gorgeous with her black one because you can't really see the strip unless you are up close.

    The ones in the picture...yikes. I saw a pair similar at Del Mar as well, and as fun as they might be for schooling, the show ring is not where they belong.
