is this a traditional cob or a hogged show cob?
As you are in the UK your horse needs to be in plain hunter bridle (so no ribbon browbands)

No button hole on a tweed jacket, brown gloves (black is totaly incorrect in showing),

Tie can be any colour except black or white. I would suggest a burghundy with gold spots or blue.

If you want to get more serious with you showing then I would suggest swapping the white jods for cream or canary, the grey tweed for a green or brown tweed, and your boots for long black ones if your horse is over 14.2hh or short brown with jod clips if your horse is under 14.2.
Also a navy velvet hat with cream leather straps is correct in the showring.
This is me on a traditional cob, turnout for a hogged cob is the same except the horse would have mane hogged, feathers removed and tail pulled and shortened

if you ever replace your tweed jacket, go for a green or brown based one as they are far more acceptable. At local shows it isnt the end of the world but the better you look the better the impression you will give the judge
