Horse Show Fashion: The Long Bolero

What if you think that a bolero is too short and a normal vest is too long? The horse show fashion panorama is proposing a new trend: the long bolero. This new version is longer. It shows only the sleeves of the shirt you’re wearing under it, and it ends just above your waist line.

Horse Show Planning, Not For the Faint of Heart!

“In order to host a successful event, it requires an average of $30,000. Did you know that? That’s the average cost of hiring judges, paying a facility, providing you with bedding, hiring show staff, purchasing awards, and various other expenses. The time and effort that goes into the planning and organizing is free! Yes, I said free. That’s because it’s done by volunteers.”

A Tale of Two Arenas

Whether I’m competing at a local show or out of state, I usually receive a mixed bag of opinions. The most common reaction is curiosity! I have people come up to me in the ranch warm-up and say, “Wait, weren’t you just in Horsemanship?” or “Isn’t that the same horse from Trail?” Those questions are also followed by comments like “That’s incredible he can do that all in one day,” and “I wish my horse could do both.” Through all the positivity, there is going to inevitably be some negativity.

The Shape of a Trophy is Not What Defines Your Experience

As a small fry, I was always asking to lope. I thought it was the goal and the entire point to move up age divisions.  It turns out, it’s only half the point.
