LOL seriously, I'm so glad I posted a picture of me in my show clothes (do note that is what this thread is about) and every response was about how I'm holding my reins. She is not a pleasure horse, has a very high headset and I'm not about to let the rein excess be swinging around her legs. Let a judge DQ me, but that's how I'm riding THAT mare. End of story. Thanks for caring so much.

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

Here's my ridden show outfit... it's what I wear for my dressage and show jumping phase of eventing too.

I am loving these photos. You all look beautifully turned out and your horses are gorgeous.

Umm actually it is to a degree. Just like dressage riders hold their hands up higher then hunt seat riders do. Jumpers have more of a fold over fences and hunters have more of a "perch".

Holding western reins with one hand with a finger between or without a finger between does not have change the effect. Try it some day

FTR yes I do have experience with western. I used to ride western pleasure and trail at a Paint show barn I did a working student position at.

I am loving the pictures, kmdstar I LOVE the look of a well turned out western pleasure team. I think its just stunning and beautiful. And the blue looks great on you guys.

Here's my and my horse's show outfit from our first show last spring. My outfit has stayed pretty much the same, but he has a different saddle now and I no longer use the fleece pad underneath it. I also chose to do this particular class with his mane down, but I usually put it up in a running braid (the single braid in this photo is from my trainer's daughter who was playing with his mane after I finished)

Let me explain. Im a jumper that does "A" Shows. On the weekdays I show in a polo, and on weekends (when the classic is and all the big classes) I show in my jacket and show shirt. :) I know the last 2 are dark, but thats my classic gear. (the photographer was REALLY bad)
