My daughter shows HP in Arab/H-Arab shows. She did very well in her class this past June. I'm no sure if the style is the same in Morgans, but I bet they are pretty similar. My daughter wore a darker jacket (dark blue but not the typical navy) that was tailored well to her. You want to be a pleasure to look at, too and an ill fitting jacket does not help with a pleasurable picture. She wore a purple shirt with a tight collar and a pin. I know some people don't like snoods and buns but I am ok with them. However, my daughter's hair is shorter so we stuck it all in her helmet and I think it gave a really clean look. As long as it's neat. :)
Make sure you wear gloves.
Also, remember that if you are in the ring, you are showing. During line up, smile, and keep you and your horse in form. In the last class class, my daughter was in line up and a little girl came in and lined up almost directly on top of her. My daughter proceeded to do a bit of a side pass over away from the girl. The judge commented on it! Always show you are in control and relaxed. :)
