Question Top for western dressage

Ok, so I am trying to choose a new top for the shows I'm attending. Any type of collar is allowed and it just needs to be long sleeved.

I kinda like this style:

BUT in these patterns:

http://www.spandexhouse.com/products...ndex&navName2= Style # PS-2189

Now, I can get both of those shirts made for less than a rail shirt from a store costs. What do you think? Could they also double for local breed shows maybe (if we feel brave and have extra money) for WP, Trail, HMS? Where do you think I should add some bling to them?

Thanks!

Oh, and here's the horse they're going with:

Well-I went to you boob and looked at a couple of show videos. The ones I saw were rather plain very classic, classy and elegant, which was what I would expect. JMHO, toy would be better off to choose a fabric that is either solid, or more subtle design. Your horse is a loud, beautiful pattern. Personally, I would not detract from that with a loud pattern shirt.

Your horse's coat pattern is already loud, I would go for a simple colored shirt. Probably not even a patterned one. Just a color that complements your horse.

I'd go with a solid shirt and minimal bling. Think more along the lines of ranch horse or reining shirts. For dressage, the focus is on the horse, so let your horse be the star. You should look clean, crisp and well turned out, but not disco ball flashy. You have the ring to yourself, unlike other western classes, so really it negates the need for the eye catching outfits. Your horse will draw the eye with his color, so do what you can to set him off to advantage.
