Cool Show us your show clothes!

Hey guys!
I wasn't sure if I should put this under showing or tack, so I put it here anyways! So basically, this is just a thread to show off your show clothes. English or Western, what you wear, what your horse wears, brands, or whatever else you feel like posting! I'll try and post some pics later, if I find time *sighs*..
Have fun everyone!

My western show outfit last year

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

I show that mare using the Morgan breed standard, so I hold the reins as they would in Morgan breed shows. When I ride my APHA mare, I hold the reins 'properly' for APHA breed standard.

Unless you have a pair of romel reins, you need to hold split reins properly. Holding them the way you are should DQ you from the class.

Using equipment properly isn't a matter of breed standards.

Um.....why may I ask are you getting your knickers in a bunch about how she is holding her reins? This thread is about show clothes, not 'How to properly hold split reins' ...... Sheesh lighten up, if you want to critique someone like that then go to the critiquing forum, there's plenty to 'correct' over there. You were out of line and being rude.

Oh....and I do believe that there is a rule in Morgan classes that YOU DONOT have to have a finger between the reins......perhaps someone more experienced in Morgan showing can elaborate?

Please read......page 36 'use of reins'......
Use of Reins is an area that often is difficult to assess, but needs your attention. Only one hand may be used on reins and hands must not be changed except to negotiate an obstacle in a Trail Horse class. Hand to be around reins. When end of split rein falls on the side of the reining hand, one finger between reins is permitted. When using romal or when end of split reins are held in hand not used for reining, no finger between reins is allowed. Rider may hold romal or end of split reins to keep them from swing- ing and to adjust the position of the reins provided it is held at least 16" from the reining hand. Riders may use both hands on the reins of a hackamore or snaffle bit horse and both hands must be visible to the judge.
