If the cut was a bit less apron-y, or maybe higher up or something, I wouldn't mind.

I have a homemade pleather vest with rhinestones that my best friend made ages ago; if I ever show in rail classes, I will be wearing that and a simple slinky (do they even call them that any more?!).

Sigh. Fashion will find its way into everything.

Why is that a bad thing?

A plain button up shirt would look so much better.

Yeah I agree, it just looks incomplete.

Completely agree, GoAppendix.

I don't understand the fascination with wearing old outdated clothing when a nicely fitted and tailored button up shirt will do the job and look much more professional.

That's a vest?! Looks like a corset maker threw up.....


I enjoy foundation shows too....I can use my blah stuff, but I can still dress it up with matching blanket/shirt.

I like all the bling. If I could afford it...I would go for it! I also like natural looking as well. It's nice to see it all.

In all honesty I agree about button up shirts. However, I don't want to stick out like a broken thumb if I already have the clothing.

Much prefer simple button up, jeans, plain saddle and pad. Maybe a nice concho here or there or a nice browband, but that's it!

A slinky and a pleather vest will make you stick out in a bad way.

A button up is entirely acceptable. I don't understand how people can go on about the guys wearing them, and then think they are somehow forbidden for women. It is a professional and appropriate look.

That saddle is just a bit TOO much. The problem with spending big bucks on a saddle like that (it appears to have crystals on it) is when that fad is no longer popular. THEN you stick out like a sore thumb...LOL

The vests....I only saw a couple of women wearing them at the VQHA Classic this April. It was all about rail jackets still.

As for bling....I have super bling, not so much bling, and plain in my show wardrobe. It depends on the size of the AQHA show I'm at, as to what I wear.
