I dont know if you have a Sears or a JC Pennies but if you do. Go to one of them then hit the Sales racks I have found some really nice suits ( regular $75.00-99.00) for $35.00 and up! This year I am looking for all Black and maybe a colored top underneath or white. I want to look presentable but want eyes on my horse rather then myself! I have 3 different colored horses to show and black will go with all of them. Hope this helps.

If you live in an area where the wealthy give their 'old' clothes to Good Will, my vote is for the GW Boutique. I've found everything from Christmas formals for $1 to Ralph Lauren suits for my husband to show halter in. Especially when we lived in Tucson, I could get some real high quality, very barely worn, name brand stuff for nothing. Out here in OK, eh, not so much.

In general, I love the suits on the women when they show halter. Looks so classy!!! But I will say I saw a lady at Scottsdale who showed in a black pants, a white collared shirt, and black suspenders and I loved it! She was tall and thin, and really showed the horse well. If someone would have told me suspenders I would have laughed before seeing her. Guess you never know!

Sorry... not meaning to steal this thread but I was wondering how you ladies like to wear your hair in the showring? I usually wear mine up in some sort or another but I'm starting to see some women wear their hair down?

I just came home from Region 9 and saw several women with their hair down. It looked awful, IMO. They were sweaty (it was friggin HOT down there) even in the AC in the coliseum, it was sticking to foreheads, flying around and just basically a distraction. I really like how Kim Morgan wears hers tied back and under control. She always looks very professional and ready. The messy hair just screamed amateur to me, in more ways than one.

Here are some photos of me from Canadian Nationals- black suit with a silky white shirt under and I had my hair back in a french twist with some sparkly pins. I bought the suit at JC Penneys $50-60 range best part is machine washable and perm. press.

Regardless of what you wear, just follow the sound advice I was given when I started showing.....Always try it on in "halter showing position" before you buy it!! Nothing like finding out that 1) your sleeves are too short and 2) your gut is going to hang out when you raise your arms!!



LOL GOOD advice!! I had ppl looking at me in the store trying on suits and standing in front of the mirror in HALTER POSE lol

Here is what I'll be wearing next weekend :)

I got SO excited the other day while garage saleing. There was a lovely little suite there... of course, my chest was too big for it :(

We dont have to worry about our hair anymore, do we HH ;)
