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.
