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!
"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'd rather notice the horse and how it moves verses the rider.
I think thats 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.
