    Way to highlight the assets in a classy way!
    Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.

    Very nice! Very subtle.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Like the colours. Hate the garish noseband padding.

    Lovely - and in my opinion would look just as nice with a coordinated helmet (especially with that cute coat!).

    Very flattering! I do love light-colored coats!
    But I agree with Blugal on the noseband padding. It ruins the subtle elegance of the well-chosen browband.

    Appsolute is very right: a helmet would in no way detract from the look of this lovely pair.

    Really gorgeous pair. I'm not even distracted by the padded noseband or lack of helmet. What DOES distrct me is the stupid label on the sleeve of the coat. No fault of the rider and I wish designers would be a little more subtle in that regard.

    Nice, but back about 18 years ago when we were videoing, Bill Warren's navy & cream combination was jaw-dropping/drool-worthy - and in my mind, still takes the cake!

    Are all dressage coats that tight? It looks more like a knit sweater/cardigan from here....

    No. But now a lot of jackets are softshell material and definitively more breathable/comfortable/fitted than wool versions.

    It looks really nice to me. Both the outfit and the ride!

    That's what I was thinking. The coat is way too tight, Does not look like a Dressage coat at all.

    Like the colors, but I could not take my eyes off her boobs. Man, it looks like the coat has a built in bra. Definitely not a classy look, imo.

    She's also cantering on a horse with large movement and has a well endowed chest in a light colored coat. I think you would be able to see the outline of her bust at the same moment in time, even in a larger coat. It doesn't look like it's pulling across her waist or hip, I think it looks great!

    Really lovely IMO.

    Love the colors! But I can't get used to the soft shell coats...they just don't drape well, and lack that crisp, neat look. They always remind me of a tuxedo T-shirt.

    I do not like these new jackets. This one gaps under her boobs--and the material and cut are to blame. As for the rider, she and her horse are well turned out and look like they enjoyed a nice ride.
    I don't get why the material for the new jackets means they can't be cut better.

    Well, Mike? Did Karen give you permission? Did she ask you to post the picture on COTH to see what people think of her outfit?
