At the 2009 and 2010 (I'm sure every year, these are just the ones I have attended ) I noticed that the riders who make the finals in the hunter events, wear shadbellies. I really like the look, but do you think it would be worth it for me to spend the money on it? For the small chance that I *might* make it back to the finals? I want to start doing more A shows (which probably won't happen ) and I saw a lot of competitors wear them there.. And in some classics at AQHA shows.
What are your thoughts? I'm open to anything.. I just think they're so nice looking and really make you look polished in the over fence classes!
Also, how are they supposed to fit anyway? Any specific colors, lengths, etc?
Thanks All opinions are greatly appreciated!
