If you were ever lucky enough to make it to Miller's in NYC (I wasn't):
You wore Pytchley coats with velvet collars and gold buttons. I wish they would come back!
You showed without saddle pads.
You jumped outside courses in the hunters, straight up fences without ground lines. And you galloped!
You rode thoroughbreds all of the time! They won everything!
Horse shows had classes only for 3 foot hunters and higher except for small and medium ponies. If you couldn't jump three feet, you didn't show. Those were the days! My how so much has changed!
