After watching Disney's "Aladdin" motion pictures, both the Pussycats and Zaleski brothers were curious, how could the characters from those films ride horses in such Middle Eastern outfit. Penelope had an idea - at their ranch in Texas, they could safely check performance of those and couple more clothes.

Mona volunteered herself to test selection of outfits our characters managed to collect during their missions, the variety included:
- harem outfit fashioned like the one worn by Princess Jasmine;
- winged hussar armour worn by Stan and Ian's ancestors living between 1600 and 1730;
- Mona's cowgirl fatigues, composed of jeans with Texan chaps, cotton shirt and cowboy boots;

- couple of historical cavalry uniforms, including Polish army wz.1936 worn by Stan and Ian's father, US Army uniforms worn by ancestors of Penny, Mona and Delilah, and Soviet Army uniforms made of low-quality cotton they took as trophy.

All those tests were performed on Mona's Appaloosa horse Bobby Hawkeye. It turned out that harem outfit is much better suited for bedroom than for riding, and that Soviet Army uniforms, regardless of pattern, aren't pleasant in wearing nor riding a horse. Hussar cuirass offered good protection, but Bobby wasn't accustomed to such weights - burden of armour made him exhausted. Mona did admit, that she feels most comfortable in saddle wearing her cowboy fatigues; though Polish and American Armies uniforms made good alternative for horse-riding outfit. 

Completed version in colour of , here you can see Mona wearing Middle Eastern fashioned outfit on her horse Bobby. I've switched colour of his spots from light brown he has here to darker tone, like most horses of his breed have .

TeeJay87Thank you - I modeled the horse's head after this screencap from "The Life and Times of the Lasagna Kid" episode, which is also Mona's appearance in the cartoon.

TeeJay87Same here, though it's not the best choice for riding a horse. ;)
