Enter at A. Halt. Salute. Give the judge a heart attack.
Top: Mini Victorian Riding Top Hat with Purple Ostrich Feather and Brocade Band in Purple, $19. Etsy store: GothikGoddess.
Last month we checked out riding helmets on Etsy; today we give some love to top hats — can’t leave our dressage readers out!
Many props to Lynn Howland for inspiring this post with her intrepid Etsy research. She writes, “I am so wearing this in my next dressage test.”
Nice. But wait, there’s more!
For your dressage-themed wedding:
Want to convince the judge you are certifiably insane?
Yes, there is a lightbulb attached to this hat.
For the dressage competitor in mourning.
Warning: May spook other horses in the warmup.
Riding hat? I dunno. But it does make you feel sorry for horses with bushy forelocks.
Goggles… could be useful in a dusty dressage ring.
The veil really lends it an air of mystery.
Imagine the judge’s face when you come down the centerline in this baby.
Excuse me, miss, but it appears you have a bird stuck to the side of your hat.
It’s too bad there’s not a coefficient for “crazy.”
