Exclamation What should I get?

Hey everyone.

I want to get my pony out in local shows/putting him up for lease. What brands/items should I buy him? Links would be great. He's training hunter/jumper.

He needs:
-A cob sized bridle. (cherry red-ish color, to match my saddle)
-Show pad.
-Boots?
-Girth(42")
-Anything else that would show him off in the ring.

If anyone has these items (new or used) for a decent price - just tell me. I'm a very interested buyer.

If you need to know: he's a 13.2h Arabian gelding. Here's a picture of my saddle for color reference. My gelding is also pictured. [:




Any help is appreciated!

I like this idea....white with the cherry reddish leather will look awesome together but still give you a nice sophisticated look.

My budget for everything? I have no idea. I can buy things in $150 increments. I don't want to buy a bridle for over $90.

If it were me, I would actually stick with a nice leather girth (no sheepskin/fleece). Probably leather or similar plain open-front boots, too. I feel like too much white and "flashiness" of tack detracts from the overall appearance. You're trying to show off yourself and your horse in equitation and hunters- you don't want the judge's eye fixated on your white girth :).
As for bridles, I own a Nunn Finer Hampton bridle, and so far it has held up well and looks great. However, it is lighter in color and I'm not sure it would match your saddle. Mine has darkened slightly when I oil it, but not tremendously. Nunn Finer does, I believe, have some darker-colored bridles, and the quality of mine is great.
Since you don't want to spend over $90 on a bridle, have you thought about buying one used? You can often find great deals on used bridles that are still in good condition.
For show pads, I personally just like a plain white fitted pad; keep it simple :). I feel like you can't go wrong with neat and clean traditional turnout and there are still small ways you can stand out that don't detract from the big picture.
Haha sorry that was so long :)
