Help deciding western show outfit

Okay, so last year I bought my black Diora slinky from Hobby Horse and LOVE IT. I couldn't afford the chaps at the time so I just wore black pants with it for the two shows I did. But, my birthday's coming up and I'm starting to wonder about my outfit.

First off, the two horses that will be shown in these colors:




Here's the shirt I have:



And I also bought a pair of used baby blue chaps in great condition from an alumni 4-Her. I love them, but I'm not sure if it would look ridiculous to be wearing a black and silver slinky with baby blue chaps or not. I have a few other used show shirts, but none of them correspond with the baby blue either. Should I invest in some black chaps? Thoughts? I'll take pics of the chaps when I go to back to mom's on sunday. Also, what color saddle blanket should I use that would compliment both Arthur and Lenox nicely? Thanks!

Btw, in case it matters, Arthur will be showing gaited, in fun events, and in gymkhana/speed events, but for speed I usually wear a flannel and jeans. Lenox will be doing the Western horsemanship/eq/pleasure w/t.

ok if you were the baby blue the top needs to macht. that color would look great on the soro but might look to washed out on the grey. A roaly blue would look awsome on eather horse. Have you serched ebay.com I find alot of good outfites for very cheap on thier and as tiny as you are you should have some good luck. For showmanship and horsemanship you want your body to be the same color as your legs it makes for a better line.

live for the moment.

Thanks. What if I went with black chaps and that same shirt? What color saddle pad/blanket would look okay with both of them? I like teh neutral colors, and lately have been thinking about a pattern with some earthy tones. Suggestions on what would look good on both? The sorrel's saddle is a black Wintec, the gray's old owner is probably going to sell me hers for Lenox, which will be this one:

do the balck chapes and then get a pad that machtes your top. i am going to see if I can find some of my old stuff from when i was skinny. That light color will wash out some on the gray but will look ok cause you realy dont want to mix up colors that dont macht. Which the black from the chaps and a light blue pad agenst the gray may real pop insted of washing out. you will have to take a pic with you standing next to the gray with your out fit to see.

live for the moment.

Thanks, I'll try to take a pic soon. The weather's been horrid lately, so I'm going to wait until the mud goes away before risking ruining my outfit, lol.

By the way, anyone have any experience with the Hobby Horse PMS (Personal Magic) chaps?
