Well I am hopefully taking Arfur to his first in-hand show on the 31st of July but unsure about what outfit to wear. I will be taking him in Youngstock, Best Coloured and maybe one other but I can't remember which one it is now Now clothes wise I have:
Black velvet show hat
White shirt and tie
Leather gaiters and short boots
Brown tweed jacket
Brown and white spotted stock
Now out of all that what would be the best combo to wear or what other things should I consider getting. I would quite to look quite proper as the Coloured class could qualify me for Equifest (even though I probs won't go) and he is sooo nicely marked and would like to do him justice by looking proper.
Here is Arfur himself:
Not the best picture and he isn't as hairy as that.

For traditional/native types i'd lean towards the "tweed" look. The good thing about inhand showing is that the dress code is a little more flexible so you can experiment to find out what suits your horse the best.
Black and white might compliment his colouring but then again when you try it out it might just look to confusing as to what is Horse or handler.
