I dare you

I do consider myself to be rather traditional when it comes to show attire. Dark coat, plain shirt, black accents, it's what I prefer. However, after being in the hunter world for so long and itching to be in the jumper one, I've come to crave the non-conservative.

Clearly, eventers know what's up. Maybe Amanda C will let me switch lives with her next year so I don't have to go through another conservative season.

Even the Dressage ring is beginning to step way out of the box.

Of course, being a fan of Style My Ride doesn't help much. Their sets are always different and flawless, and the Vincero Boot will grace my feet sometime in the distant future when I can justify having multiple pairs of tallboots that aren't for showing in.

The hunter/eq world needs to keep up with the times. I guess for bigger medals and more elite shows the traditions should certainly be kept, but what harm would a poppy red shirt do at the local level? It'd only be risky if Devon is local to you. Of course, there are sets to go with my slight rant.
