Get Your Equitation On!

Horse lovers in the city have the perfect opportunity to ogle some fine horse flesh this week as the 48th annual Washington International Horse Show trots into town.

Men who get turned on by the sight of women in britches and boots should wander by the Verizon Center after each evening’s show – bring your own saddle for extra fun!

If you’re an actual equestrian, and not just a perv, the event attracts big names from all over the world – such as Great Britain’s Olympic-level riders, Nick Skelton and Michael Whitaker – to compete for prize money in jumping classes and equitation classes.

Wait, “equitation classes”? Did they take them in our Google famous Equitation Field for practice?

And what’s up with the terrier races? They gonna make pooches pace between horses? Oh think of Benji!

    As if there weren’t enough kinky things about it, the saddle connector dohickies or whatever they are on the corners of the graphic look like handcuffs. At least to me.

    And since when do American flags have FOUR red and white stripes beneath the stars?

    Those aren’t “saddle connectors”, they’re bits, the portion of the bridle that goes in the horse’s mouth.

    John’s right. I think those are “eggbutt” bits at the corners of the poster – straightened, the center part is what goes in the horse’s mouth, not the loop.

    Geek out, equitation style! ;)
