Joggin’ in heels?

Bright red sox, polka dots, high-heels, bling and a slip?

Horse and riders alike were dressed to the 9’s for the jog and start of the 2012 Rolex Kentucky 3-Day CCI**** Event. A slight breeze and the warm sunny afternoon made for the perfect studio to capture these fashionistas. 43 Americans of 57 total competitors will be moving forward to compete in Dressage over the next 2 days, including Philip Dutton’s mount (1 of 2) Mighty Nice, who had a slip during the jog. After inspection, Mighty Nice was “Accepted” and just left the jog with more dust than he arrived with. Karen O’Conner was stunning in her white suit — and yeah, she rocked the heels while jogging Team Rebecca LLC’s Veronica. Another noteworthy outfit was Allison Springer’s dress – bright teal, black with gold horse bits — go girl! If it was a battle of the sexes, I’d definitely say the women took the win. Although Buck Davidson Jr.’s bright red sox might come in for a close second.
