o.k. ive 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 dont 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!
