Saddleseat Suits...

..are ~ well.... kind of masculine to say the least.
Don't get me wrong.. compared to other 'riding outfits' that I have seen in the show ring, the saddleseat suit is conservative and elegant ~ steeped in tradition.
..but what would happen if the collared shirt and man's tie was replaced with say an ascot? It is a bit of a cross between a tie and a stock tie, but a bit more feminine, don't you think?

I miss day coats at the Arabian shows (seems they are now out of style). Day coats were a great way to add a feminine touch. Nothing manly about my purple and blue striped taffeta! :)
