I have the ARHA handbook from last year. It's almost identical to the AQHA handbook. I'm paraphrasing, but it says that apparel should be Western, but functional and super-bling is discouraged in both dress and tack. There is a huge emphasis on both the rider and the horse to look functional. Seems pretty laidback.

Just found it. Here is better paraphrasing:
traditional western attire that reflects a true ranch lifestyle
"Appropriate Western attire includes a long sleeve shirt with collar (buttons or snaps preferred), a western hat and boots with heels. ARHA's main focus is on the performance and ability of the horse and rider. Clothing with excessive crystals, glitter or sequins is strongly discouraged and in no circumstance will this have advantage over other exhibitors with well fitted western attire. The addition of any protective outerwear is acceptable as dictated by weather conditions."

Thanks everyone, I assumed it was not blingy at all and that function is more important than fashion. Chaps are optional too I assume?

But if I end up buying a ranch horse can I still wear my western pleasure shirts? They are glittery but no crystals. I'm never going to find the right horse!!!

Come on up to NY Farmpony…..you can ride mine next week and I will watch. Oh-and he is for sale….for the right price. lol

As for shirts-I probably have every color of the rainbow….just have to decide which will stay tucked in, and which matches the saddle pad the best. When I decide which one to use.

franknbeans- I think I'm going to make it a goal to have a show shirt/ saddle blanket in every color :) Right now I have black, blue, and red. I need to get some turquoise soon for when I show my light palomino

That's a pretty blanket. I'm going to a show in mid august to watch. Can I get a ranch horse for 5 k?

I would think so, not mine tho…… Especially in the fall. there is a place in VT that has been highly recommended by 2 of my trainers……and in the fall they should be paring down a bit for winter. They have some really nice horses and lots of them, all the time. Truck them in from the midwest.
