Orange show jacket?

I am an American english jumpers rider. I am currently showing in A and B shows. I love the look of the Netherlands Olympic show jackets (since I am mostly Dutch) and would love to have an orange show jacket.
Does anyone know if there are any rules that forbid orange jackets in the jumper ring? Does anyone know where to find an orange show jacket? I found one from Spooks, but it is quite pricy. Does anyone know where to get it cheaper?

This is the look I'm going for

Usually the dark colors are worn unless you are actually a member of the country's team.

I'd stick to more traditional navy blue or black to be respectful to the sport. I don't show jumpers, but aren't you judged exclusively on time and jumping a clear round? If turnout isn't factored in I suppose you could wear an orange jacket but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're really a member of the countries team.

You can wear whatever color you want in jumpers. Although I would refrain from wearing a country's jacket in the show ring unless you're part of the team. But if you just want a similar color, go for it! You only have to wear a more traditional color in the hunters.
