I always have loved to look at driving hats, always elegant, nothing simple about them at all and the colors, it is such a wonderful sport with all the history and comrade too!

Lilley your hat is wonderful!

Where do you all purchase your hats? I will be driving my mare in the show ring for the first time in about a month - I have everything but a hat. I'm at a complete loss as to where to find them! Suggestions?

I will be wearing a red and black dress, with a black blazer, so I'd need a red or black hat.

I made mine. If you like Victorian style try recollections.com or sugarbritchesinc.com.

You can also try the Kentucky Derby hat sites.

I don't know why I didn't think of ebay! What should I use for search terms? I found a local shop that seems to have lots of hats (it's a place the local polo club recommended), but I'm thinking they're going to be pretty expensive. I'm going to stop by today anyway, if only to find a style I like.

Here's my mare with the trainer:

I think she's going to look pretty fancy in a shiny black harness and cart, but I'm biased!

Look up ladies church hats. PS a key to a turnout is not to be matchy matchy. So if I had a black horse and cart I probably would not do a black outfit. Black is a mans color or more winter. A softly patterned blouse with a black hat would be smart though.
