    If that's sexing up the ring, I must look like a 100% trailer park trash whore...

    I'm tired of sexing up the schooling rings at the horseshows.

    I mean these are family events.
    You clearly need to stop twerkin' it so hard in the school ring. Disgusting. You're going to get a reputation if you keep doing that.

    Now, where the H is my Dover catalog????

    Perhaps Dover should start marketing riding burkas?

    There's even several people in the background walking around in breeches and collared shirts.

    That was some day!

    If that picture is the standard used to decide who's a hooker or not, then I must be the biggest horseback riding hooker in the Mid-West!

    I think the gal on the cover looks great. But since I'm not buying any fun stuff from tack shops anymore (my most exciting purchase lately was "aw crap, I thought I had another tube of Equimax in my car") I use tack shop catalogs to admire other people's pretty ponies. I can admire pretty girls at the local Starbucks, though, admittedly, I'd get a much deserved talking to if I stared.

    I would so buy a Canoe You shirt!

    Dover just kills me, there "Models" are models, not riders, and they look skinnier all the time, At least BOB uses riders in many of the shots.
    Plus do YOU look that good when at the barn?? I know I did not.

    LOL so funny...

    I saw that catalog and my first thought was - oh they are trying to copy Animo breeches with a cute detailed pocket....

    For the younger crowd probably.....

    Now for the real sexy riding apparel you need to see the Animo ads -

    Those breeches have been around for years. I own 2 pairs myself. I guess that makes me a grade A slut.

    LOL I guess Animo copied them... I have never seen the jean fancy pocket breeches..... I actually think they are cute but I don't personally need to bring attention to something that already gets too much attention on its own...

    I was being silly with my "hooker" comment up above, of course. Not the cover so much, but a lot of the things in these tack catalogs and stores these days just gross me out--they look like a "Juicy Couture" truck collided with one from Ralph Lauren and the wreck mixed cargo.

    Yeah, I'm an old-school fuddy-duddy who believes the barn should be a pretty sexless place except for mares in season; if only because there ARE so many impressionable young kids there. A few of the "new styles" I think are trashy:

    FITS breeches look like a bonobo's butt. Just weird. You want to draw eyes to THAT? Low-rise with muffin-top speaks for itself. Ditto the bum-crack out the other side. While I realize these Animo jackets are comfortable over a big fence, they drape just horribly (yes, I tried one on) and that's beaucoup wampum to pay for, basically, polyester.

    Huge, blingy "crests" like Joules et. al. look like they belong on a hip-hop star and are a self-parody of traditional dressing. Even worse are jeans/breeches with what looks like tattoo decorations embroidered in gold.

    Who EVER got the idea of crusting up browbands, spurs, stirrup irons even with colored rhinestone crystals? Ewww . . . looks like my grandmother's reading glasses from Wal-Mart. And there is NO ONE, I mean NO ONE over the age of puberty who really enhances the landscape on horseback sporting a hurts-the-eyes print, shrunken polyester tank top.

    You'll find a lot of this dreckomania on Dover's "Closeouts" page--for a REASON.

    Flame me, I'm Teflon!

    I guess I'm a fuddy duddy too. It isn't the clothes, it's the pose and the come hither and canoe me look.

    I thought I was getting a western girlie magazine. Haha

    Give me a cover shot of a big, bay TB jumping or galloping. That will get me to crack open the mag instead of dumping it in the trash.

    Not even close. First of all you are on a horse and second the model was attractive in a (jmho) sexy way.

    Some people are catching the sex vibe and others aren't. Your posted pic just looks like all the thousands of others at shows jumping their horses in english gear. Definitely no sexing it up noted.

    OMG, I love my Goode Riders I think pose like that in them. It doesn't LOOK like that, but it feels like it.

    The super wide waistband squishes the belly and the muffin tops. It makes me feel all meerrooww.

    Don't blame Dover. Blame the pants.
