I love GM and I watch him in person whenever he is in my area. Very knowledgeable, very experienced and he is who he is, for a reason.
I agree and disagree. I say let kids be kids and ride in whatever colors you want at low levels, but when you get to mid and upper levels, you have to be presentable, it is about the horse, not the colors. Respectful of the sport and the traditions.
It is ok to have colors here and there - regardless of what you choose. I couldn't care if you had hot pink, but don't make it appear on every single body part, tack part, equipment bearing thing you can have on yourself and your horse.
Instead of seeing a horse and rider going across course, you end up seeing a flippin' pilon cone galloping around instead.
I like colors, but I like them to be tactful. It isn't really about colors - it is about represntation of yourself, your horse, your coach, your team, your sport. Don't get me wrong, I love my navy and baby blue - but I try to not go overboard with it.
