Dirty Dressage?!

It is definitely a contradiction: dressage riders in mud splattered whites!?

For a photo series project, photographer Holger Schupp from Germany asked famous dressage riders to get as dirty as hell (and no, they did not wait until the horses did that job - they had stylists working on that mud look - pfffff). He wanted to show that despite dressage riders being always tidy and made up, dressage is hard work and pictures of dirty pants and co should support that statement.

There is a nice making of video of one of the models at CHIO Aachen in 2012. You can watch it here:

Next time, Holger, you do not need stylists and extra photo shoots, just pass by on a horse show weekend and you will find me looking like that (styling a la Hafl) - would be way less effort and cost for you ;)
