I think I would pick the last one for me - no, make it the turquoise one - no, the second one......So do you get a discount if you buy all five shirts at the same time?

Ooh ooh I have just thought. They would look good riding aside; all you need to do is choose one (for me the first one you posted I think), have an apron made to fit in exactly the same material, buy a side saddle, and you're away.

Easy peasy!

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Golden.... I just bought a new dressage saddle today, I do NOT need amazing photos of western shirts right now.... They are highly tempting me to take that saddle 3 hours drive right back to that saddlery and swap it for a western!

But they are utterly stunning! I have a thing with bling, but I can get away with having it subtly everywhere I go... Like My bejeweled dressage saddle blankets :P

Schooling shows allow more casual attire at English shows. Even some rated shows (at least for H/J) will allow a rider to take off their coat if the weather is too hot. I've seen this happen in Texas xD
That said, I think it's a matter of respect. Even when it is too hot, I still go in full attire.

As for the shirts... I like that first blackey-goldey-silvery. But they are all so lovely ;-;

It is a rail shirt, but even moreso a Horsemanship shirt rather than a WP shirt.

Horsemanship usually have dark middles to minimize appearance of movement, more collars and cuffs than WP. While WP has sparkles and patterns all over, and frequently vests over shirts. Been a while since my daughter showed western.

I went to Congress and only got a chance to see one class, the girls all wore shirts this style but glitter and sparkle all over.

They held the rein hand above the horn, and the other absolutely still and stiff, straight down - wondered if was WP ? I though Horsemanship had the empty hand held exactly same position as the rein hand.

Many had glittery, dangling hair goodies bouncing all around, which was a big no-no not so many years ago.

PS It must have been WP. as Horsemanship would have had them doing individual patterns, then a shorter group rail time.

Well the first one is listed on a FB group I'm on, then I searched and found where she got it from. The new ones I have listed are all on ebay, and currently sat without bids, so I could potentially buy one for $50 less than she is asking.

No discounts, one shirt has to fit all, a go everywhere, do anything shirt

A much more difficult choice then and most unkind - not unlike only being allowed to pick one puppy or one kitten from the whole litter sitting in front of you.
