Western clothes
This summer I'm going to be in some shows, more than schooling shows but nothing too fancy. I only show hunt seat right now and I wear breeches, tall boots, a belt, and a polo. My horse also rides western, and I kind of want to show him in some western classes too, but all I have western is a bridle; I have a western saddle but it's really not fancy enough so I may eventually want to get another, but for now I need clothes for me. I could wear my moms western boots, got jeans, but I don't have a shirt or hat. Any ideas on a simple, yet nice, western shirt?
As western is not my main thing and will never be, I don't want to get a bunch of stuff, or really expensive stuff either.

Jeans usually aren't acceptable at most shows. Nice black pants will look more polished.

Check ebay for nice shirts at reasonable prices.

You can wear a helmet in lieu of a Western hat.

Check the clearance section of online tack stores, eBay, maybe even Craigslist.
I personally love schneiders, I got my show shirt (I show schooling and open) for about $80 from them. :-)

Black pants with a button up, long sleeved shirt would work for schooling. It would help if you got a color that matched your saddle pad. :)

Look like this, haha. Plain tack, plain shirt, plain saddle pad, still won.

You can get a button down shirt (plain) like this one: Worthington® Long-Sleeve Button-Down Shirt - jcpenney
and then add a scarf. If you can get yourself a pair of chaps, that would be preferable. Tractor supply has the George straight Justin straw hates for about $30.

I have a pink hobby horse shirt I could mail you if you want it. I'm too fat for it.
