We need to take every step possible to keep equestrian sports in the Olympics, and if you look good on TV, you stay in the Olympics. One step to help ensure this is to lose our competitive attire. Joe Six-Pack takes one look at some kid in a white stock tie and top hat and changes the channel. Instead, athletes should be allowed to choose their competitive attire, within reason. Let's allow one-piece riding outfits, preferably made of spandex and close-fitting. We also need to encourage sponsorship logos on riders' clothing. Think what a sponsor would pay to have a logo prominently displayed where the crowd could see it as the rider galloped away. | ? Practical Horseman
