3 Tips For Upgrading Your Western Horse Showing Wardrobe


If you love showing your horses in a Western riding style, you probably know just how flashy some of the outfits that others wear. In order to have fun and really stand out, you probably want to make sure that you are wearing nice, impressive show clothing. If you are feeling a bit uninspired about how to upgrade your Western horse showing wardrobe, however, consider following these tips as you shop for equestrian show clothes.

1. Choose a Signature Color

For one thing, you should consider choosing a signature color. Even though some people have Western show clothing in all different colors and styles, choosing a signature color and buying all of your show clothing in this color can be a good idea for a few reasons. First of all, it can make you more recognizable. Secondly, it can save you money, since you will be able to mix and match your clothing a bit better. Lastly, you can choose a color that you know looks good on you and that matches well with your horse, so you'll always feel confident when you hit the shows.

2. Add Your Own Embellishments

Another way that you can upgrade your Western horse showing wardrobe is by adding your own embellishments. Of course, you can purchase equestrian show clothes that is already covered in rhinestones and glitter, but there is nothing wrong with adding a little something "extra" yourself. If you check out a local craft store, you can find jewels and rhinestones, glitter, feathers and more that can be added to your outfits. This can help you upgrade outfits that you are bored with and can allow you to add your own special touch to your Western horse showing clothing.

3. Add Jewelry

To really finish off your look when showing horses, consider adding a bit of jewelry. Even though you may want to be careful about bracelets and other jewelry that could get caught up on your reins or your horse's mane, necklaces or earrings can really finish off your outfit. You can purchase simple jewelry, or you can look for bigger and bolder jewelry that will go along with your bold show outfits. Plus, as an added bonus, you can swap out your costume clothing for cheap, allowing you to get a different look while still wearing the same show clothing. This can save you money, which can be a good thing, since showing horses can be costly.

Accessories Complete Your Outfit

Hi. My name is Candy Lewis. I’m a stay at home mom in my mid-thirties. Taking care of my children and our home can wear me down. Sometimes I’m exhausted to the point of not caring what I look like when I leave the house. However, when I do have the time to put an outfit together, I depend heavily on accessories to complete the look. I have learned that I can have an ordinary sweater on but when adding a necklace it turns into an extraordinary look. Jewelry, handbags, belts, shoes and hats can all finish off an outfit. I’m happy to share some of my accessorizing tips with you. Some are very simple. I feel ten years younger when I take a cute little over the shoulder handbag and sling it over my head and shoulder. I hope you find my tips to be of interest!
