In honor of my little decoupage project..lets talk about gloves this week.
Emily Post - An article on Etiquette ~ 1922
"...Correct riding clothes are not fashion but form! Whether coat skirts are long or short, full or plain, and waists wasp-like or square, the above admonitions have held for many decades, and are likely to hold for many more.
Gloves must be of heavy leather and at least two sizes bigger than those ordinarily worn...
...And if you want to see a living example of perfection in riding clothes, go to the next horse-show where Miss Belle Beach is riding and look at her!"
The Queen of Etiquette herself, Emily Post advises that gloves are to be worn, without exception when women ride!
