How much do you spend? Western

Doing a poll to see how much you spend on western discipline show clothes. Please help me out with my research

Thank you!


Also, do you prefer to buy new or used? Does price play a factor into whether you buy new or not?

Most of my Western show shirts have been gifts, but I did buy one last year, for just under $150.00 from Hobby Horse and I know for a fact (as I ordered it), my husband spent $125 as a gift for me for Christmas.

I'm a college student. I buy used and cheap! I got a NICE pair of chaps, black jeans and show top (two actually) for under $80.

Luckily my parents are AWESOME and bought me a brand new pair of show boots (my favorite boots EVER) and a blingy belt :) (I didn't ask prices but I know they paid over $100. If I was buying I would have been much cheaper haha)

It depends. My clothes are custom made; I have a designer I use who is in Florida. Shirts can be anywhere from $100 to $200. My showmanship suits around $300+. It all depends on if I supply the fabric and crystals....which I do very often. And also how fancy I want to go.

My grandmother is a tailor/seamstress and makes my stuff. Though it still isn't cheap depending on fabric. The last jacket cost me about $150 for supplies.

Costs of show clothes can very greatly. From $150-$200 range at Hobby Horse to several thousand for a jacket from Berry Fit. (I'd NEVER spend that kind of money but they are worth checking out just to look, they are stunning!)

I'll buy new, used doesn't matter. I have a lot of my show clothing custom made for a particular show and a specific horse, so that runs into bucks.

I've only ever bought one show shirt new, and it cost me somewhere around $200, I believe, from Hobby Horse. The rest have either been bought cheap from 4-H veterans (I've gotten some very nice things from 4-H shows), or given to me by family in the horse show business.

Like everyone else has said, "it depends." I've spent up to $1500 for a show outfit; pants, chaps, shirt, hat, and saddle pad so I would match, down to $2 at the Thrift Store. In fact I just totally scored at the local Thrift Store. I got 6 mens pearl snap button down shirts, that look like they have never been worn, for $10.
I'll be using these at the little training shows we have around here locally. Especially come summer. I am not putting on polyster or rayon and riding around in 100 degree plus whether. No indoor arena's around here, no they like us bake.
