I take it your showing western right?

Lordie, lessee.. On a white/gray pony, I think that Red or True Blue would look dazzling. Along with light tan tack, or black tack.

When I showed western, I had a vest with a nice "slinky" on underneith.. and I wore tan english riding pants (i know what your thinking.. english?!) but I put tan chaps on over them so it all looked legit ;)

But then again, I've also gone for a more simple western collared shirt with a bolo and nice brand new jeans... i'd recommend this for male riders ;)

Here I am riding an awesome horse, Sonny (LONG story), in the really fancy gear ;D

OH.. so its a costume contest sort of show?

If its a white pony, have you considered getting animal-safe paint and painting black spots on her to turn her into a dalmatian? And you can dress up like a Dalmatian too, or Cruella Deville or whatever her name was =) You can use a big red belt as a collar, and put it loosely on her neck.

Since she is white/grey, it sounds like she could fit the role as a unicorn, but personally, I find that too predictable ;) I like to shock people, lol!

Sorry for misunderstanding your post, I thought you meant formal show wear, not costumes ^^

How about beach bums. Get some floaties for the horses legs a big one 4 you a towel 2 sit on some sunnies for you and your horse and a flower necklace 4 ur horse. And 4 you, you wear like bathers or rash vest and board shorts. And you pony has to be very quiet to do this. I did it on my little pony and we won the fancy dress and at a much bigger show I came second.
