English schooling show at in the end of May?

Hey I am going to be in an english schooling show at my barn. My pony will more likely me a gray or white (i'm not sure which one i am riding). They told us to wear a polo shirt, jodphurs, and paddock boots. and a helmet of course. I can't decide what color polo shirt to wear because I have alot of jodphurs. Which color jodphurs should i use: black,hunter green,hunter green w/suede knee patchs, black, tan, or tan full-seat (probably wont look good with paddock boots. Also I might be getting tall boots so would those be okay to wear? If you need any pictures lemme know. here is a video of me riding mars if you want to critque it? YouTube - me and mars (he wears that bag on his nose because he would like twitch if he didn't have it) heheehehehe. anyways thanks! also should i wear a hairnet?

Both horses are actually greys, there isn't such a thing as a white horse (I'm fairly certain)
I think a baby blue polo would look nice. I would go with the tan breeches, it would look more professional.

yeah i think your right...a horse is only white if it has pink skin and then usually they are an albino (cream colored-blue eyes) but they do exist. Black horses don't exist though, or so i have heard. yeah navy would be good maybe black or gray I might get.

Tan breeches. Tall boots are fine if you get them. I would wear a hair net and try to put your hair ALL up in your helmet. I think the baby blue polo would look great, or a pastel pink, or pastel yellow. Don't worry about the stitching on your saddle changing color. It doesn that over time with the wear and tear. Use something called "Never Dull" on your stirrup irons, then buff them with a cloth. If you don't have the never dull, then you can just scrob with a sponge and soap and then buff. Good luck! Have fun!

Oh, QUIC SILVER THE HORSE UNTIL BLINDING! Haha, and then bag tail, and sheet! If you can, braid. I ALWAYS braid, it looks alot more profesional. Wear tan with the knee patches, and a white polo. White will always look profesional. Use a black helmet, or a velvet show helmet. Make sure your boots are polished and shinny. I wouldn't use the Tall boots because they most likly won't be broken in. Also wear sweats, and a jacket over your clothes until you mount up. Trust me, what can get on you, will! Just scrub scrub scrub your saddle! If you want the irons shinny, put them in the dishwasher! Just scrub your bridle too! Have fun!

yeah would a baby blue ribbon belt with pink/brown dragonflies be good? or magenta with pinapples =)

the tan jodphurs have suede knee patches. I am going to wear a tan v-neck sweater if it is cold.
