Show Ring Style

Series: Allen Photographic Guides (No. 31)
Much of the art of successful showing lies in presenting an attractive picture to the judge. Clothes, their quality and the way they are worn, play a vitally important part. John Minoprio's superb photographs will inspire all exhibitors, young or old, whether riding or leading in-hand, to achieve that essentially understated and professional elegance which will complement to perfection the quality of the horse or pony being exhibited. From leading-rein and first ridden pony classes through to the hunters, hacks and cobs, examples are shown of correct and stylish dress. Side-saddle classes are included as are well-turned out judges, and the rules of dress laid down by the various societies are given within each classification. With its emphasis on style and attractive, well-fitting clothes, John Minoprio's aspirational book will encourage anyone who ventures into the show ring to do their exhibit justice.
