Post What colour of hunt coat?

I am doing showing this year, for the first time, so I need a hunt coat, because I am at a hunt barn and I am doing hunter. {Lol} I have a nice bay horse. I was thinking about solid black blazer with pale blue or white shirt?
Yes or no? I am just doing Short Stirrup and Pre-Novice at a schooling level. Also some Pony Club. So? What do you guys think?

Hunters ime tend to stay away from black, and lean more towards various colors. I've seen browns, greys, and fine patterns and what not. It really varies. However I also have seen people in black hunt coats at schooling shows as well as many people who event or do other disciplines will go to schooling shows to practice.

I don't think it's a huge deal, but I tend to go with color myself and since I event I do my dressage in a dark coat. Good luck and when is the show?

I love a navy or black hunt coat. Keep it traditional for hunters. My hunt coat is black and my shirt is white with very pale blue pinstripes. When I go to the 'A' rated hunter shows everyone has black or navy blazers, with pale colored or white shirts. My combo has done me justice. Dallas and I are undefeated in our division.

A black blazer with a white or pale blue shirt sounds good to me! I also have a light blue shirt I use from time to time. Your picks should look very nice on a bay.

Dark blue or black. If you want to look less dressage-ey, you can get a black jacket with pinstripes or windowpanes, etc.

Shirts can run the gamut from soft pastels, pinstripes or a solid white. There's some flexibility there, so long as it all looks good together.

I live in the same province that you do StarPony, and can say with confidence that the MOST common jackets (at any hunter show I have been to within the past two years) has been black or navy. There are some grey jackets out there, but not as many as black and navy.

I wear a navy jacket with purple windowpanes(like pinstriping but a more plaid-like pattern) and a light purple shirt.

You should check out Equestrian Factory Outlet, as they have brand names for less....like RJ Classics who have GREAT coats.

Well, I have a schooling show in March, Pony Club Rallies in July/August and I might go to local stuff towards the end of the year

Actually up until a few years ago I didn't see a lot of black (rated or schooling), a lot of hunters think they look too "dressagey". But lately black has made a big comeback, but almost always with a subtle pattern like a plaid or a windowpane. (although, solids in general aren't that instyle right now, most people want a pattern) I think grey (esp dark grey) is still quite popular, but navy is always classic. I'm seeing less and less browns and light greys these days.
