I like this new trend!

I don't know if this is ranch horse western pleasure, but I would like to see more people like this at the shows where the talent of the horse stands out more than the horse and rider. I personally think the "less is more" trend can be very fashionable!

You go girl!

I was with my husband at a show early this year and we found ourselves judging the class based on the riders outfits

I'd rather notice the horse and how it moves verses the rider.
Annanoel and HighstepperLove like this.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think that's why in the UK there is a very strict dress code in show classes - pretty much everyone is going to be wearing the same colour breeches and jackets so the focus is on the horse and not on how flashy the riders outfit is

AT first I didnt' know what you were talking about. So, I guess you are likeing the simplicity of her show outfit? Nothing to do with the horse's movment, (which looks exactly the same as any other show photo). The rider's outfit looks very complimentary to the hrose. I agree that less is more.

I agree it should be the rider and horse not the close they are wearing

ride a draft and see the world differently

Even if the horse is moving in violation of AQHA rules and still winning? The ears are lower, by far, than the withers. BOOOO!

It was a Pinto show, not an AQHA show.

The class should definitely judged by the horse and not the clothes.
