2012 Hobby Horse Standouts

The 2012 Hobby Horse catalog arrived a few days ago. There are some really nice new options and a few I just don’t get. There are three new pieces that really standout to me. The “Gemma” blouse comes in three colors and is a simple yet showy option with its metallic accents and bright colors, but classic fit. The “Riverside” tunic adds a lot of dimension. Show clothes have been trending towards a lot of texture and depth; “Riverside” offers both without being overdone. It comes in four different colors/patterns, although my favorites are the “turqua” and olive. My favorite new addition to the Hobby Horse line is the “Dixie” blouse. It’s a simple white or black, button down, show shirt. I am thrilled to see simplicity finding its way back into the ring. A  well-fitted, button down shirt will always look classy in the show pen.

With fuel prices on the rise and everything else costing more, simple show outfits are going to become  more prominent at local, state, and regional shows. I think it will be nice to see.

  1. That new vest was yuck! Just don’t think that is going to go over well. It did not enhance the models in the catalog so I know it will look just ridiculous on me!
