My friend and I went to Dover today. I tired on a shadbelly just for fun, and I have to say I looked pretty damn good! Lol. Hopefully I will have the honor of wearing one of these in competition one day. For my non-dressage/non-horsey followers, this is the style of jacket you are required to wear at the FEI or international levels of dressage. Right now I’m competing at 2nd (out of four) level of American dressage.
