Hobby Horse Clothing Co. - Horse Show Apparel, Attire, Accessories has a lot of good ideas and good prices. They also have a color-matcher thing :)

(go to "dress for sucess" at the bottom above their adress then you can see what they have for color combinations and what to wear)

i've already looked at their color wheel but they dont show paints or the shade of brown she is.

I think turquoise would look great with your horse:) I did showmanship with my palomino paint in a turquoise (w/ rhinestones) with a black stretchy shirt (can't think of the name) and black pants. I thought it really popped in the ring against my horse's lighter coloring:) Ive also used a black (w/ rhinestones) jacket and hot pink shirt underneath and that looked pretty good too:)

I used make my own outfits when I showed western (they weren't huge shows so I could get away with it). I usually got a blazer from a women's store and then found string of rhinestones (at the fabric store) and my grandma soed them on the lapel and cuffs. For the shirt I would buy a hobby horse cheap slinky (ahh thats the word) and glue rhinestones to the neck part.

It worked pretty well and I got a lot of compliments, but again they weren't huge shows or anything:)
Anyway, good luck at your shows!! Maybe Ill post some pics tonight of the outfits

(Sorry that diddn't help. It helped me get started (: )

That shirt is awesome! I like that it is not "OMG THERE YOU ARE!!!" but you still elegantly stand out. I think that color scheme would look awesome with your horse as well! Good luck :)

I like it. It's pretty, but not screaming, "look at me!"

BADRIDING. BADBAD. SHAME... Just kidding. Love it when people are like "your horses head is too low, your hands are too high" etc... And they don't even show stock horses... It's not like I'm telling them how to train their hunter/jumper, y'know?

Hmm.. Purple, Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Hunter Green, Kelly Green. You can do almost any jewel tones with her. I'd steer clear of red. Washes my paint out, and they're pretty much the same color and similarly marked. That shirt you posted is pretty, but it reminds me of Aladdin XDD

If you're going to spend money, I am a total believer of Final Cut Show Clothing. I bought her demo 'Duchess Jacket' and while it was gorgeous in the photo, it was JAW DROPPING in person. She does do payment plans, and they are quality!

How is joor mare bred? She looks A LOT like Cowboy! 8D
