I'm all about color. My taste has always tended toward the brightest Crayola, Dayglo, Fisher Price hues. A color theorist would use the word saturated, one wavelength at a high intensity. The breeches that catch my eye in the Dover Catalog are bright, fun, and often as not, in youth sizes only. I'm 56. Still, this is a good time to be an equestrian. As my chosen discipline of dressage loosens up and allows color, it's been fun to lead the charge.
My color, and my horse Riley's color, is orange. I work with a pretty broad palette, ranging from apricot (not peach, never peach) to amber to hi-viz to rust. Here are some signature fashion items from Ri's and my respective closets.
I make and sell browbands (btbbrowbands.com). Many are conservative in color, but I like to have fun with the ones I make for my horse Riley. Riley is an equine Austin Powers, so these really suit him I think.
He has an orange halter from twohorsetack.com -- they make durable, beautiful custom Biothane halters.
Riley does not wear a bonnet normally, but this Elegant Reflections bonnet was a must have.
And me? I wear orange when I run and ride -- this gilet is from ProvizSports -- great for visibility but also a great fit.
Oh, I have a blog at behindthebitblog.com -- I don't update it as often as I used to, but feel free to visit and learn about me and my Hanoverian dressage horse, Riley. Thanks!
