Thank you. I purchased the black top I posted from a company for a good price....It just arrived today, but it was shipped to my dad's house so I have to wait till tomorrow to see it.
I'm not that into pinks or yellows, but teal, lime green, or purple sound tight! Maybe the purple, light blue or teal, as I'm getting fairly bored of lime green lol.
About the outfit....If I have the shirt here (Hobby Horse Clothing Co. - Horse Show Apparel, Attire, Accessories
) I would get black chaps, pants, and hat, right? What about the boots? Mine are getting too small, so I'm going to buy a new pair of cowboy boots anyway....Would a belt be okay? I have some really cool belt buckles that I could wear, but they have brown belts. I think that would clash o_O
In regard to the breast collar, will that red-brown color look tacky in the show ring against the black of the saddle and my outfit, and the bright color of the saddle blanket? We have a few breastplates, the kind that are just a band of leather that hook on to the D-Rings, in the horse supply box in the garage. I could shine one of them up if that looked better. They're dark brown in color.
I didn't quite understand the comment about oiling my bridle....The headshot of Arthur was taken a few years ago, and my bridle had been overdue for an oiling and was really old. My new one is plenty supple from me oiling it after every few rides, and cleaning it with leather cleaner after every ride.
Thanks so much for your help!
