So now I have a lovely grey boy (snow white in fact) to show I need to get a new show jacket to match him (I use a light brown checked one with Navy Velvet trim on Pasha with Burgandy Tie.... So do I go for a lovely Green Tweed OR Navy? AND what colour tie?

I'm leaning towards Navy as I could then use it for Dressage too (although I have a lovely Dressage Jacket, the material just isn't suitable for showing).

OR does anyone have any alternative suggestions?

Green one:

OR

Grey?

If you are doing novice ridden and dressage a Tweed, a colour of your choice will do just fine. I wouldn't wear a navy jacket for showing.

I do like either the green or brown tweed myself. If you have brown tack on your grey then the brown would look smart. & its a little less common.

A fine blue/grey tweed looks really smart on greys with navy beagler. But a muted green is lovely too - and dead useful
Happy shopping

I'm leaning towards Navy as he's qualified for the RIHS and you should wear Navy (although they allow Tweed in the outside rings)... alot of the Pros in the South Eeast wear Navy everytime out...

This is my current one (on Pasha).... i've always worn brown on him as he is bay, but the new one is going to have to go out in black tack (shock horror) as that's all we've got at the moment. Oh dear!!





Sorry can't find a pic of the front
