So glad I live in the UK, competing is nowhere near as expensive as elsewhere. Even BD champs is only 50 a class to enter, stabling is approx 30 a night and fuel is a max of 200 from most places in the UK (I can get there and back on 100)

That whip handle is fine!
You should see some of the mega bling coming out now days in the dressage arena (*inserts fingers into throat!!*). There is diamonte spurs, spur straps, stirrup irons, saddles with bling inserts (leave that to the Western saddles PLEASE!!) nosebands that are decked out with mega bling (one of my biggest hates, I cannot stand bling on nosebands, vomit vomit and more vomit!! Even patent needs to be carefully placed in my books!), helmets with bling, jackets with bling, breeches with bling... BLING BLING AND MORE BLING!!!
There was a girl getting around in a hot pink tail coat and top hat last year around here, on.... a chestnut..... *faints*


So, that whip is perfectly fine :P

And if you're not planning on doing much showing, especially at official competitions, then don't worry about going out to buy white breeches if you've got tan ones. Whites look classier (though whoever thought of making us wear black coats with white pants must have been 6 foot tall and resembling a stick insect as it is so very unflattering!), but not essential.

Unfortunately not.... I thought she was perhaps doing it for a charity ride... but no. It's a permanent thing.... Didn't even know it was Dressage legal but she's getting away with it!!!

I hope that doesn't become a "thing"

If it does, I'm quitting Dressage and buying a tennis racket!

Depends what you're doing - one of my friends doing the CCI* at Blair Castle last year said she was about 500 quid for entry and stabling etc... Not including petrol etc. Still cheaper than the US though!

Wow, I had no idea all that bling and crap was allowed, yuck! I can't stand pink, especially hot pink lol ...I detest white pants, they do not look good on me at all, I'm not fat, but I'm short(not terribly, but 5'4) and I'm certainly not thin like I used to be! At one point, shortly before I got pregnant, I was 103 lbs, now I feel accomplished if I get under 130 lol


Anyway, I have yet another question. Is this bit legal? I just bought it(well bought it a few months ago and haven't used it) I remember reading something about it not being allowed to be 2 different metals, but couldn't remember if that was just the mouth piece, or rings too.

AHHHH Photobucket is NOT cooperating! Everytime I try to upload it all of a sudden sends me to yahoo search results for the freaking page I'm on, I'm ready to throw my computer!

Anyway, here is my new bridle too, what do you think? Show acceptable?
