Show Accessories Website?

HI everyone! I'm new to riding and I've been trying to stock up on what I'll need for shows. Can anyone tell me if there is a good site to buy show accessories? Not clothing. I mean stock pins, number pins, hairnets, bows, etc. Anyone know where I can find these things? I've seen a few on Dover and Horseloverz... but not much of a selection. Any tips? Thanks!

That's cool that you get to show when you are a beginner. I'm assuming you do english riding?

This actually a really good website. Tons of things to pick from:

Stock Pins - Search | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

Hairnets- Search | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

I'm not sure if this is what you meant by bows, but you won't need it if you have a hairnet- Search | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

If you're braiding you'll need a comb and either bands or thread to secure the braids (No experience with braiding, so someone correct me if I'm wrong- Braiding Supplies<br>Get ready for the Show Season!*|*EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

Usually numbers come with a string to tie around your waist. That's all I can think of as accessories go though because I've never shown before.

What kind of shows will you be doing? Are you working with a trainer? If so it might be easiest if you start off by getting a list of things you need from her and have people help you find the best place to get them. Not sure what it's like in the "breed show" world, but NO ONE in the hunter/jumper world wears stock pins anymore! And if by 'bows' you mean those hair net "show bow" type things, please please don't wear one of those either! I don't have any idea who still wears those. A simple hairnet (which you can actually get from walmart or the drugstore) under your helmet will suffice. I agree with the above post, I've never had to use a number pin. Usually at the show office they give you a string to tie around your waist. So find out what you will definitely need so you don't end up spending your money on things you don't!

That being said...

For dressage you will need a stock pin, and show bows are quite popular and can look very sharp. As for bridle numbers there are a couple different styles that are usually all available at your local tack shop.
For the stock pins and hair bows, local tack shops usually have an abysmal selection, so ordering online is preferable. I've always loved dressage extensions http://www.dressageextensions.com/ I just got a new stock pin and hair bow with SWB breed logos and I lovers them.

Like someone else said, get hairnets and rubber bands for your horse's mane and tail at walmart; they're half the price there. I've never used pins for my number, either. I always tie it around my jacket with $1 black shoelaces from walmart. I prefer those because they don't poke holes in your jacket.

I've never seen stock pins used, either; I got my initials monogrammed on my collar, and that's all I've seen.

ah, so that's who keeps all of those stock pin/show bow companies in business! You dressage people....

Just to clarify, by my above post I wasn't trying to one of those 'oh my gosh look what she's wearing' kind of riders. But different disciplines have different expectations (which is why I asked what kind of shows you'd be doing). And I find that there are some people who get a "what to wear at a horse show" list from a book that was written 20 years ago (or better yet, from another country) and end up spending money on things that aren't necessary anymore.

We 'breed show' people keep the show bows in business too. ;)

If I understand correctly, stock pins are not used by H/J riders because it can come undone during a fall and possibly stab your neck. Which is not the case for dressage riders. Also, I have read in many places that if you have long thick hair, and you simply can't get it into a hair net and under your helmet, then those barret/hair net combo things are perfectly acceptable. It's better than trying to stuff all of that hair under your helmet which can compromise the safety and fit of your helmet.

Use a shoe lace that is the same color as your hunt coat for your number, then it won't put holes in your coat
