What level of shows are you planning on going to? That will determine what you should wear and what kind of tack you will need. Since your horse isn't "loud", I would suggest some brighter or more distinct colors and a patterned shirt that will make you stand out from the rest of the class.

With bays, I always gloss up their muzzles and eyes with a shine product...it just makes them look so freakin pretty. Oh and I know you don't want any 'obvious' stuff but even though it is obvious, lots of people forget...smile...and don't just look like you are having fun, actually have fun.

well i'll be doing A, AA or B shows for right now!
And also I need colours that will match her, I will mornlikely be having black chaps and a black hat but what do you guys think I should have my saddle blanket and shirt as?? Haha I always colour co-ordinate.
Corinowalk, um she is actually a buckskin not a bay :P.

Also someone suggested that I dress in all black with a little white/silver on my shirt to match my buckskins black mane, tail and socks... it looks quite good but do you think it does??
By the way this horse im about to show you is for sale in Western Australia for $13,000. If you want more info i'll give you the phone number of the people =).

Love the colors for Showmanship with the buckskin!! Very classy and they look great with that horse. For WP, I would definitely go for something with more color. The predominant black will make you blend in to the rest of the riders in the class and you need something that will make you stand out more. I would suggest purple (which is a hot color right now) or teal or turquoise would also look good. Definitely black chaps and depending on your shirt color / pattern, consider a light tan or cream colored hat. Lighter hats are definitely "in" for riding classes right now and really brighten up your face.

I think a bright royal blue would look great on her too.

Im sorry if this is too basic for you this is why I asked for a show photo of you.

I would be defiantly putting make up on her. If her muzzle is light in winter I would go with clear, and if she darkens in summer I would go with black. But take your time and practice with the black before you go to a show. Also clipping the ears and whiskers from the muzzle. And some white make up for her star/stripe.

For bright white white socks at a show.
Keep them clipped. The night before wash them (omo matic is my secret) and when they are dry cake them in baby powder (This will stop dirt, mud etc from getting on the socks over night.) and in the morning brush off all the baby powder. And then apply hoof black, never before brushing off the powder!

I also would be colouring her tail black, it does look sun bleached. And maybe trim it to the fetlock.

Once you have the feed right, Coat shine is a big thing. After a show wash I apply a dob of cowboy magic to my sheepskin glove and rub it over the neck, shoulder, back/rib cage and over the bum. And chuck on a nice clean rug. Other people swear by Hi-Shine, but im a CM person. And then at the show I apply it again.

For you, in the ridden I would stay away from black. A shirt that’s burgundy with gold and white trim would look stunning. Sand chaps, sand boots and cream hat(black hats “darken” your face) and the most important ting is to Smile!!!
