Juniors and Matching Horses

Our juniors tend to skew a little more traditional in attire- both for themselves and their horses. I have seen some pretty wild things at other barns- zebra polos, leopard saddle pads, and hot pink stirrups- often all being used at the same time.

I did spot Kaitlyn and Fire in matching outfits in our Sunday lesson! So cute!
How do the kids at your barns show their personality?

  1. We have No Juniors only SS kids, lots of pink and purple.

  2. We actually don't have any juniors, but at my last barn it was madness. Crazy polo wraps and t-shirts and sports bras and tie dye saddle pads and insanity. Drove me nuts.

  3. It's funny, because for a long time I was obsessed with ALL THE COLORS and being all matchy-matchy. I still pull out the occasional colored pad/polo combo, but mostly my stuff is boring-ly black and white. Oh the joys of growing up;)

  4. We actually have rules about the colors used for our juniors and competitive adults! It helps with the crazy!

  6. I suppose I'm considered a junior. ;) The only "crazy" thing I've ever done is doing the matchy-matchy thing. :) I want to be respected as a rider and I don't want to look like some childish idiot in bright pink tie-die, haha!

  7. No juniors at my barn either but as eventers we all tend to be matchy matchy but not too many crazy colors.

  8. Lady used to be in bright/lime green when I was younger, so I guess I was kind of guilty of this one! Since then, I've toned it down and she now looks lovely in hunter green and black. :)
