Happy Summer Festival!
Yes indeed; Summer Festival 2014 is underway this week and will last until August 8. You can get the lowdown on all things festival at CSTM; guide is at this link (CSTM: lotro-summer-festival-guide-2014).
Here are some articles from previous Summer festivals.
2013 Horse = steed-of-midsummer
2012 Horse = summerdays-horse-and-defeat-of-Chieftain-Taun
2012 goodies = fetch-it-fish-it-race-it
and how to screw up at fishing = Danadelion-and-the-GM (I still laugh about this one... :) )
And, as always, you can find all the Steeds at All the Steeds here at Danania.net. Ok, the corral database is a couple of horses behind, look in recent posts if you don't see them transferred to the corral yet.
So, for 2014 Summer Festival, there are no new quests or deeds. The new stuff to obtain include: the festival horse for 40 summer tokens, the warsteed cosmetic for 40 tokens, a robe for 20, and two different cloans for 20 each.
This year's Summer Festival Horse is called the Steed of the Wedmath Celebration. Let's see the horse!
Steed of the Wedmath Celebration:
Here is the basic horse. He is a grey dapple horse with a simple yellow and green pattern Caparison. It is a one-piece outfit. Simple enough; let's see what we can do with the Warsteed.

Warsteed of the Wedmath Celebration - Default:
The default Warsteed with Wedmath caparison looks like the basic horse. The defaut outfit is the same color as if it were colored gold.

Warsteed of the Wedmath Celebration - Default outfit color, Light Grey Spotted:
I don't have the same dapple hide, but I do have Spotted hide for warsteed. Here is the same shot as before with the spotted hide in light grey. It is close to the original; looks like the basic horse has a slightly darker hair.

Warsteed of the Wedmath Celebration - Ered Luin and Black Chestnut
The green doesn't dye, but the gold portion does. Here is what it looks like in Ered Luin. The vibrant colors accentuate the flower pattern of the outfit. This shot has Black Chestnut hide and Black hair. I found that the two-tone look of the outfit looked better with two shades of hide/hair.

Here is a closeup look at the flower pattern. I think that might be orange mums, green leaves, and yellow butterflies?

Warsteed of the Wedmath Celebration - Ered Luin and Brown Mix set
I wanted to try something different and looked for ways to "tone down" and de-accentuate the flower pattern. This next shot mixes things up a bit by utilizing some non-Wedmath pieces. Pieces used here are:
Wedmath Caparision - Ered Luin
Light Halter of the Entwash - Ered Luin
Saddle of West Rohan

Warsteed of the Wedmath Celebration - Forest Green and Blond Mix set
Lets try another Mix set. The Forest Green color blends with the undyeable portion very well.
Pieces used here are:
Wedmath Caparision - Forest Green
King's Banner Accessory
Blond Hide, Black Chestnut Hair

Warsteed of the Wedmath Celebration - Crimson and Spotted Flaxen Mix Set
One final mixed set. Ok, ok... the Wedmath is not the most appealing Caparison ever. It did give me some fun laying mix and match though. :)
Pieces in this last shot are:
Wedmath Caparision - Crimson
Withywindle Halter and Legs - Crimson
Spotted Hide - Flaxen Chestnut
