I love reading the George Morris columns in my Practical Horseman magazines. They are the first thing I read each month when my magazine comes and I really take a lot out of them.
But I do have to say that it really makes me giggle when every time he evaluates an eventer decked out in their gear, he can't help but make a dig at the "gaudy," colors that take away from showcasing the horse and then then, I guess to make up for it says something like, "but this pair is certainly color coordinated." Clearly, he is trying to say something nice, he just can't quite get there. Sort of like my Grandmother talking about the latest trends in fashion or music.
Just thought I'd share my amusement and see if anyone else also enjoys reading GM try to complement something he clearly and unabashedly cares so little for.
