There were some good things, and some not so good things that we’d prefer to leave in the past.
1. You had monogramed collars. In ALL of the prints.
2. You had to use these devil contraptions:
You 100% have kicked someone trying to help you in the face.
3. You had one option for show coats: hot, not stretchy.
We didn’t have any of this stretchy technical fabric business. Showing in the summers was brutal and I’m surprised more of us didn’t die of heat stroke. (Full disclosure: I don’t know the make of this jacket, it just looked like a torturous one from the Google.)
4. RIBBON. BELTS.
You needed every color under the sun so you could match your monogrammed collar *just right*
5. Your *must have* accessory was your horse name bracelet
Because who were you without your pony’s name engraved on a piece of uncomfortable leather?
6. Your room looked like this:
Maybe it still does, no judgement here.
7. You jumped everything like a horse.
Or you could go to your rich friends house and jump *the actual thing*
You probably said you could jump a 3′ spread on the top rails and really injured yourself and totally ruined your new TS with grass stains. Sorry mom.
8. High Rise. Side Zip. Tailored Sportsman.
OMG PLS BURN THEM ALL.
9. Your notebooks looked like this
Ok this is like, really good, and I could never do this in a million years, but you get the idea.
You had the best tan of all tans:
But you wore it as a badge of honor. You worked hard for those terrible tan lines.
