For jumper shows - I am not sure how everyone does it, but preferrably beige breeches. Polo Top, beige breeches, nice belt, tall boots, velvet helmet, black or brown gloves. Or Beige Breeches, Show Blouse with Ratcatcher, Show Coat, gloves, tall boots.

You see white breeches in upper levels, but I do not believe - correct me if I am wrong, that they are common at lower level comps?

I was always told that white pants were reserved for dressage people, Hunt Masters/Master of the Hounds, and Grand Prix riders (or really high up jumpers)...

I only ever see white pants in the International Ring for jumpers really, and at fox hunts.

Yeah, white breeches are reserved for Classics and Grand Prixs in the jumper ring. Tan/Beige/Greys are much more common in all the other levels.

I DO where my white breeches in the stadium ring and on the xc course at horsetrials though, mainly because I don't feel like peeling them off of me and trying to get other ones on after a dressage test in July...

I just went to an intro level Show and I think having the "correct" dressage attire makes a great overall statement about you and your horse. All of my dressage attire cost me under 30 bucks. I was given white breeches, I bought a white sleeveless show shirt for 15 bucks from a friend, my stock pin was a few dollars as were the hair nets. I bought my "show coat" from goodwill! Go find a nice tailored blazer for 2 bucks and add an extra button! SO easy, and cheap! I also wore white gloves, not black. I'm not sure which is technically correct. I wore paddock boots with black leather half chaps and they looked like tall boots!

Good Luck, and hope this helped!

I actually went to VA today (because as I mentioned the only consignment store around carries such a junk for very high), and got my 1st show shirt for 10(!) bucks in "used" section. It's brand new (per the shop owner sometime you can get lucky and find the new one in what they get there for consignment)! I'm so thrilled!

Unfortunately they didn't have anything nice for the show coat (no my size in my price range :( ). So I guess I'll keep looking...
