"When I saw the quality of Avril’s work, I knew that if I was going to invest in a custom show jacket then she was to be my designer of choice.
Avril’s knowledge of the Show Pen meant that I was able to choose the style that would work best for me. As a Western Horsemanship, Pleasure and Trail competitor I wanted a jacket that would be appropriate for all three disciplines. I was included in the design stage and my ideas were met with enthusiasm. A jovial play around with some stunning crystals actually became included in part of the design.
The stunning Aubergine jacket that was produced for me, is more than I could have dreamed of! I’m very proud of the 6200 crystals that Avril kept on adding, as all she heard from me was 'more bling!!!' From the Elizabethan styling of the latticework, to the delicate swirls and flattering lines, mean that I really do feel confident that I am looking my best in the ring.
I’m also delighted that Avril and I are working on yet another design to grace the Show Pen in 2021 when I will hopefully show in Longe Line Competition."
