show jacket colors

Show season is not to far away and I need to get some new show jackets for in hand classes. Not a problem so far, the problem is I am showing new horses this year and do not want 10 different show jackets so I need everyones opinion. What show jacket colors go with the following colors of horses, yet are professional looking and slimming? The horses being shown this year include a silver Buckskin with parti blue eyes, gray, silver bay, blue roan pinto, smokey black pinto, and possibly a silver dapple. Any suggestions?

I was looking thru a catalog the other day and saw a beautiful Hobby Horse show outfit, it was a chocolate color and had sand colored trim, it was so pretty and very tasteful, not tacky looking like some can be. But then I like earth tones a lot. Otherwise, maybe a smokey blue-gray color would look nice with the color of horses you will be showing?

grey/blue colour tweed looks good with greys, roans and darks (and probably with blue eyes!)

Thanks for the ideas! I have never had problems deciding on show jackets before but then I have never shown this many different colored horses at one time.
Last year we showed in a plum colored jacket with black shirt/pants. It looked really good with the smokey black pinto, gray, and black appy. Then I have to change up some horses on the show string, and now I am wearing a bald spot on my head trying to decide on a jacket

You can never go wrong with black or navy blue. I got a new vest last year. Mine is a navy blue with some dark stripes on it. It's very settle but they are both colors that will always work with any color of horse.

Yep, the darker colors go with any horse. I really like the purple and teal on every horse..

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I like the idea of teal. I have found that I really don't like a lot of the clothes worn in halter at AMHR shows and I always struggle with what to wear myself. The clothes I wear in in-hand classes with my big horse just don't look good with a mni. You have me thinking though, now I want a new jacket, I will have to hit my mom up to make me a new one.

What is the "style" when showing AMHR? I've seen pictures with people wearing hats, no hats, like prom style dresses for driving... Im just wondering because I might show one of my BOs minis in a few pinto shows for her this summer and will probably need something new as well. I will show him in halter and driving for sure... maybe showmanship and in hand jumping (depends on how well the training goes). The little guy is a sorrel pinto.

So does the quarter horse outfit not work with minis????
