Well in my opinion Tess is eyecatching with her awsome colour, so you will want to steer clear of the checkerboard & Rows, and stick with sharksteeth. Im in love with the Navy/light blue on her colouring but please get a different rossette on it =p im not a fan of light blue/red but I do like the Navy/red ( I added a pic of my Navy,Red, White & gold/silver browband its my most current one. You could even get away with a baby blue and baby yellow (i know the colours sound crap, but I had it made once and it looked amazing!) Purple I find needs something to mix it up with so maybe add a light blue or turquiose so its not as youthis looking (you know what I mean?) But still enough of the "cute factor" for her height class. I deffinatley vote navy/light blue though!!

This is Macca's Browband but is to be Karlos's one.

What do you think FF? Your the expert here!! Oh yes I definitely don't want to look too kiddy, but grown up and serious about it which I am I was going to get the sharksteeth anyway as I like them better and they suit tess better I just put these examples for the colour

Haha im far from expert!

Well im getting this browband made with turquiose made in it for Jack. Its very hunter though...

Id say light blue/navy silver with bling in sharks teeth then have a nice navy blue jacket (even maybe with pinstripes or cutaway to dazz it up), light blue vest, blue tie with navy/white stripes, and I would wear a white shirt. Match your gloves to your johds. I would wear bananna or mustard johdies. And if you wear a nice silver tie pin. Also with my jackets I make the arms shorter so my cuffs of my shirt show an buy nice cuff links.

OH yes I forgot to ask what colour tie and that but you pretty much summed it up for me
I will get one made for tess
Or if there is a nice one this weekend I may get that. I also like this one....
I was looking at a Feral looking turquoise stock on the internet! Yuck! Id get white but im bot wearing
A full on stock until I get to higher levels. As for the cutaways, I don't really like them much, they look too
Tight. I want the sophisticated and elegant look. Even with my piggy pony lol
but it looks kinda...ponyish?

I vote ties for -16, 17+ is a stock. I wear a cutaway, that's usually the more femine class, the straight cut is traditional sofistication. Its personal preferance. I vote pinstripes in the jacket though. Haha cutaways, there not much tighter, but I wear jackets a few sizes to small so im used to it. This year I sold my childs 8 for a childs 10.. so yeah =P But anyhoo yeah make sure your jacket comes to your hip whilst sitting, any longer looks sloppy. Oh and what helmet I vote Charles Owen Fiona or Hampton. That's what were wearing.
