Shirt Colour?
Going to go to a show soon. My horse is a reddish bay (in my avatar) and I'll also be riding a true black minimal pinto. I have a light purple shirt. will the colours match ok?
In my area, we don't often wear coats because of the heat. But in case it's cold, I have a black coat kicking around.
I ride in tan breeches... Will this all go well together?

Yup, sounds fine, both horses are dark enough to contrast well with a lighter purple, your bay seems more brown than red, so it shouldnt clash with the red tone in the purple.

Purple sounds really nice. another colour i really like the look of is a pale yellow or 'gold' as they call it.
looks nice with tweed, blue or black show jacket, if you ever have to wear one :)

this all depends, what sort of show are we talking about here and what level?

Purple looks good on both bay's and black's. So you should be fine :D

English Show, over fences. Just above entry level basically. After this show, maybe a B-rated show. We'll see.

in that case, your purple shirt should be fine =)
