Ridiculous "Equestrian" Fashions

Sheesh, people – just get regular breeches! XD

Have you come across any ridiculous "Equestrian" fashions? XD

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark

I live in Wyoming so our fashions are different. :P western to the extreme. My favorite is cowboy boots with just about any sort of dress. With some dresses it works but with others...................

I TOTALLY dislike some of the new style hunt coats. I like the Butt to be covered and find it very unflattering to have the butt sticking out from under a too short coat. It isn't just about tradition. It is about what makes a rider look good, IMO.

I think this is unattractive, personally.











How is this flattering? Where are the graceful lines? Look, I understand getting bored with the same 'ole same 'ole....But change, just for change, is not necessarily good.

I HATE the new zip-up hunt coats.I saw someone at a recognized Event wearing one for dressage and it looked so unprofessional.

Here's a picture. YUCKY!

VB, I was going to mention the zip coats! I think they're hideous.

The upside is now I feel less weird in the supermarket with my riding gear on! Heck, I'm going shopping at the chinook centre now rocking my kerrits!!
