O.k. I've been showing horses for 3 years and I have yet to buy a hat! I have never owned a cowgirl hat but since im getting my show boots this year I might as well get a hat.(ive been riding in my work boots) the problem is I have greyish boots, a dark brown belt,and usually a dark or white shirt. So I don't know wether to get a black felt hat or a white/tan cowgirl hat.and is there anything that determines the quality of the hat? What should I look for and are straw hats alowed at shows/rodeos? Thnx!
