thanks socks..but ive already looked at theirs..

im thinking could i do a black shirt and change the saddle pads out to like different colors or does the shirts need to match the saddle pads?

If you really want to be competitive they should match, or at least get saddle pads that have black highlights in them... then you could do a black shirt.

I would try these....

and ebay, ebay rocks!

and also... is it required to wear chaps or can i just wear jeans? and also what color jeans?

ilovestitch 01-17-2010 07:07 PM

Chaps yes if you really want to show and be competitive, and if you want to have a black top then you have to get black chaps. I suppose i should ask you how competitive you really want to get and what color your horse is. If your going to spend the money to show you want to get stuff that is going to last you as long as possible and you want to get (what you can in your price range) that is going to get you noticed.

katieandduke 01-17-2010 07:12 PM

ok....

my price range is low..lol..i dont have that much money.. i do want to compete and place..but i am only showing in small shows for now..

my horse is dark bay..there should be an album showing you pics of him on my profile

i WANT to be competitive...the only thing holding me back is I have no money except $200..

by the way, thanks for helping me out!

anytime!

If you want to stay cheap for now i wouldnt worry about chaps, a good pair of chaps would take up your whole budget. I would start with the basics and build from there. If you buy things now that will work for you if you ever do get the money then you will already have some of the things you will need. I would start with your shirt, black is a good color to go with because if you do eventually go deeper you can always get a vest to go with whatever colors you decide to go with. I would get a blouse or better yet a slinky shirt. If your going with black, your hat has to be black as well, and a black belt. Black boots. A belt buckle would be a great thing to get to add a bit of silver to your outfit for little cost. And as far as jeans go get a normal blue color, dont get a dark, light or a funny colored wash at all. Wrangler jeans would probably be the best fitted and colored. I would look at some of these sites for things.

jeans (wrangler cowboy cut jeans for women are amazing, they have a flat inseem so it doesnt rub on your leg at all)
