(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.

Well you aren't too far off! I was told that black was coming back in, but didn't notice it until I was at the Syracuse Invitationals 2 years ago. (I think that was the beginning of it) The big shows on the coasts are what start most trends! It's just now getting to where it's more normal in the middle of the country. I've also seen a LOT of soft shell jackets on the coasts in the jumper ring but they haven't made it at all to where I live. I'm curious to see if they make it at all!

Between going to Palgrave (Caledon Equestrian Park which is the official host for the equestrian part of the Pan Am Games in 2015), other A rated shows, and schooling shows....it is what I have seen the most of in the past 2 years. There are a few greys and browns, but mainly black and navy.

I have a picture of a schooling show class I competed in with 16 others and everyone who was wearing a jacket is pretty much navy or black.

Not the easiest to see exactly which colour it is because of the angle and the lighting....but you get the idea. Other then the one girl who was wearing a white sweater...if they werent wearing a show jacket, it was a black sweater/coat/vest on (or at least anyone from my barn was because of our coaches). The girl thats the furthest to the left turning her horse is in a dark grey winter jacket it looks like. The girl on the paint pony in the middle with his head looking back is wearing a black hoodie (barnmate), Im on the big bay beside the girl in the white sweater...and I was wearing a black under armour shirt with a black vest, as I didnt own a coat at the time.
