Turnout Review #2 with John Greenall

In this feature, John Greenall, ADS Registered Pleasure Judge, reviews photos submitted by our readers and offers tips for making a great impression in the show ring.


Photo 1 - This is an excellent example of coordinating a carriage to a horse. The natural wood of the vehicle compliments the chestnut coat of the horse. Obviously, great time and effort was taken to match the apron to the upholstery and to use accents in green with a hat band and scarf. This is a very smart turn-out.



Photo 2 -The vehicle is in good balance with the horse. A black horse invites the use of color to brighten up the turn-out. A scarf or hat band could accent the outfit shown, or if the driver feels comfortable, just about any color jacket or blouse would work. Gloves should be dark brown.



Photo 3 - This picture shows a nice relaxed impression of horse and driver. The straw hat and vest are appropriate for a country turn-out such as a Meadowbrook warrants. Again, the gloves should be dark brown.



Photo 4 - What a nice stepping horse. It is hard to see if the driver is wearing an apron, but if he is, it should be over his jacket. The use of a light grey jacket helps to lighten up the otherwise dark turn-out. The driver could get even sportier in a sport jacket and straw boater in summer season. The whip position is a bit high, a lower angle would show a relaxed hand.



What a nice picture this makes of four ponies put to a ralli cart. It is not always easy to get proportions to work this well. In the first picture, the drivers grey top hat should be of better quality and with a black hat band. The grooms hats should sit level on their heads, the hats are tipped back a bit. Since this is a European turn-out, I might be amiss in stating that I would prefer to see the ponies manes pulled or braided, not hogged. In the last picture (not shown here), you can see that the pole is wrapped with a turquoise material. This should be black.
