Help with handler (and pony) atire for first show!


I've just taken on a 2 and half year old traditional gypsy cob. He's about 13.3/14hh and still entire.

He's very pretty and has these amazing flowing (almost danity) paces that don't half cover ground that's persuaded me that he's much more then 'just my pony' and I think he'd be wasted if I didn't at least give him a try in the show ring. So I've decided to just show for fun this summer and over the winter circuit and see where we go before he starts more in depth training next year.

first question: What is correct turn out for a TGC? He's a lovely long mane and tail and these gorgeous feathers too so I'm assuming he gets to keep them haha!!

second question: what can I wear to show him in hand? I have a black jacket and a grey tweed jacket(hints of green but definitely grey), black hat, black gloves and somewhere I do own a pair of black long boots.

Have to say this show stuff is confusing!!

PS hope I got this in the right place!

You are showing off the horse so you might consider all black, nothing that makes you stand out.
