Wanting to get. out this summer will be my first ever show and so confused, I have a chestnut sec d with 4 white socks and a tri coloured gypsy cob 2yr old.
I have cream jods, or navy . Jacket wise I have a black and white tweed from a high st shop or a brown blazer type jacket if I could get away with either.
Footwear wise I wear toggi canyon boots so long black ones would trousers need to be tucked in or out !!
Also what would ponies turn out need to be as 2yr old not been bitted yet
Thanks in avance

Cream johds (or trousers) with the brown jacket. Footwear needs to be something you can run in. I prefer to wear trousers over johds so they cover up the fact i am wearing dark trainers or boots. You could also do with some brown gloves and maybe a brown show cane.
If they are colts still you may need a bridle (check the show rules) Gelding and mare Welshies you could use a white show halter. If you dont want to bit the colored you could use a filly slip but they tend to be quite delicate looking and i dont really thing they would suit a cobby type.

I would use a inhand bridle and show lead.
Our local one, athough is not correct most of them wear cream jodz, jacket and long riding boots.
But when I finally get there, I will be wearing black or cream trousers normaly shoes and a white shirt.

Pale (cream, beige, canary or white) jodhs tucked into long black boots is correct for ridden. The Toggi canyon boots aren't great for ridden showing thought - they will be fine for in-hand but would be better with just normal trousers worn over the top! For in-hand, either of your jackets would be just fine with a nice shirt and tie :)
Both ponies in as plain bridles as possible - no fancy browbands, diamonte, velvet, ribbons etc! Both shown unplaited and untrimmed too.
