Turnout Review #4 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 - The horse is a 6 year old Morgan. The gig is a spindleback made by Kerry Hofer of Horse Power Concepts. The harness is one of Barb Lee's (Nearside Harness) leather presentation models. Whip is Cindy Holyoak.

J.G. - This vehicle should be raised to be in better balance with the horse. this is done by adding blocks on top of the axle. Gloves could be darker. Add some red trim on apron. The hat could be larger with more style. and the lamps should be mounted in the middle of the body.



Photo 2 - Juneacres Tyler, a registered Morgan (14 hands) put to a new vehicle, built by Menno Miller, patterned after an 1885 Hooker (Wanda) phaeton. Whip is Glenda Farrier. We're all from Iowa!!! Photo by Robert Mischka.

J.G. - Nice looking turn out ! Driver should sit on the right as all our etiquette comes from England . Apron is great goes well with vehicle . Hat is a little red but has style. A collar could be used, as this turnout is very formal, but okay as is.



Photo 3 - The horse is a Morgan Percheron Cross gelding, and is driven by Ron West of Indiana. The picture was taken at the Kentucky Gayla in 2000 where he won Reserve Champion.

J.G. - This is a nice looking turnout. The hat could be changed to a straw boater for more style. But the driver has very good posture and the vehicle is in balance.



Photo 4 - This gig was made by Christain Stolfus. The picture was taken at Gloria Austin's Traditional Carriage Driving show at Continental Acres, where this turnout won Concours de Elegance. Whip is Lynda Jowers. The horse is Sabrina's Serenity, an 8 yo Morgan mare. The photographer was Williams Photography. The cart is bird's eye maple with wicker between the floor and seat. It is 1 years old. It has traditional hubs, brass fittings and yellow pinstriping.

J.G. - On this one I feel the apron is too red to go with the jacket. I would try an apron that harmonizes with the seat and a black trim to go with the black iron. The braiding is great for a 9/11 theme but should be all one color, or not at all.



Photo 5 - Marcy Benicaso and Karim Falak 14.2 PB Arabian. Carriage custom made by Gar Dutton, Phoenix, AZ. Photo Taken by J. Naismith Phoenix, AZ

J.G. - This turn out is in good balance and correct black harness with black iron, But it needs color to brighten up the picture. The hat could have more style maybe a bow as many of the "Hats by Katie" hats have. The britching is a little loose.



Photo 6 - Morgan put to Meadowbrook

J.G. - This turn out needs color and a SMILE. White is difficult to use; a forest green would help.



Photo 7 - 1/2 Andy 1/2 SDB, open bridle, put to a home made Cherry cut under pleasure carriage.

J.G. - The 4 wheel vehicle need to be raised to be in better balance with the horse. This can be done by adding blocks to the top of the axle.



Photo 7 - I submitted a photo for the first turnout review, and based on Mr. Greenall's comments, changed my turnout a bit. I have attached the before and after photo.

J.G. - Great improvement. But the apron could have a little trim to match the red. A red edge and a red monogram . The look is good but very dark below the waist.



Photo 8 - Carol Justice driving Vanderwende (Wendy) 6yo Arab mare in black Smuckers harness to a meadowbrook style cart at their very first show.

J.G. - At first this turn out presents a pleasant picture, but needs to be just a little less casual. The dash should be re-covered with black patent and sewn tight with no sag. The traces extend out in front; have the harness maker add holes in the ends, so the extra can be hidden at the wiffletree . Also, if the gal were to add a jacket or vest it may smarten the look up a bit, and she should relax her shoulders. But the overall picture is of a lady having a good time, which is so important to exhibit. Good luck !
