Modern Day Horse Show Stall Decorations??

Okay - so am I the only one who really believes that this is an area STUCK in the 50's?

Honestly - horse show barn/stall decor has not changed one bit since then..

..and I am looking for some new ideas. I do not mean to be disrespectful but these are just too boring and blah for my taste.

I want something that pops..something that would stop a spectator and make them want to come and visit...and ask lots of questions. Not anything obnoxious ... or gaudy...just a touch of Victorian, a scent of being expensive and very classy..something like this for summer:
Okay - not exactly the whole tent...but at least the larger black and white stripe as the accent curtains.

Please tell me what do you think!

Aghhh- I have often thought the same thing. I'm a Morgan Horse fan, but there are alot of similarities between Morgans and Saddlebreds - showring fashion, stall decor, the whole shebang. Anyway, I can't wait to see what you may come up with! I love that stripe thing, I can just imagine the gasps and awe people would have stumbling across this at a show's stabling area.

I like these tents.

Now that would liven things up! You are right, it is very staid and traditional, no matter what the breed or discipline.
