Fashion Trends from Wellington

Each winter brings many equestrians heading south to Wellington, Florida, where the weather is warmer and equestrian events are plenty.  Wellington also brings out the latest in riding fashion.  If you want to be the most fashion forward rider in your area, look to the riders at Wellington to get some ideas!

Here are a few to get you started in the dressage arena.

 

Brown Shadbelly

For years, dressage has been all about the color black:  black tack, black boots, black coats, black top hats.  Well, now we are seeing chocolate brown creep back in.  Want to be in on the trend?  Add a brown shadbelly to your closet like the one below from ShowChic Dressage.  This is the Custom Kentucky Shadbelly but also check out the ones from Equiline and Animo.

All in the Details Shadbelly

Another trend is the pop of color in the details of the shadbelly.  Jeanine Biemond recently wore this shadbelly that had a contrasting collar, elbow patches, and belt detail on the back.  I adore this look and hope to see more jackets like this in the future.  It really is all in the details, and details like these are sure to get you noticed in the dressage arena!

Elbow patches on other show coats (available at Horse and Rider Boutique):

Swarovski Crystal Helmets

These are pretty much a dream come true for me because I love nothing more than a pop of sparkle.  Match your horse’s rhinestone browband with a little crystal on your head as well.  There are some absolutely beautiful helmets to choose from and Samshield even offers a custom helmet.
