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.

I think blue, purple, and teal go with any color horse :)

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

Dark purple would look good.
