I can only speak to what we do in the Northeast.....I have no idea if it varies at all from coast to coast. You will find that there is generally much less bling in reining. So, many of us wear a nice western shirt, matched to our Yucca Flats (the BEST) saddle blanket, and jeans. Nice chaps are fine also. Some feel that a little bling or fancier shirt is fine, once it is "earned". Boots-square toe only. Hat with Quarter horse crease. Saddles-seem to vary by trainer preference, but Bob's custom are probably the most widely used. Jim Taylor are also nice saddles, as are Leddys (VERY nice quality and very plain) and Sean Ryon. Very little silver on the headstall generally, and Tom Balding Bits.........
As afar as boots-many I know use the Professional Choice SMB's, and leather skids with buckles-not velcro. THey wear better.
