    My horse Rosbrin is a 15hh Mahogany Bay 10 yr old 1/4 TB 3/4 Arab gelding. He has a small star and no other markings.

    He wears:

    Tan coloured SJ saddle with black knee/thigh rolls and black seat
    Tan stubben leathers
    Stubben stirrups
    Black leather girth
    Tan coloured Mark Todd Mexican Grackle competition bridle.
    D-ring jointed snaffle with copper rollers
    Tan coloured Breastplate with martingale attachment
    White saddle cloth bound navy then Gold/Yellow with Gold/Yellow writing 'ROSBRIN' one side my name the other.
    Nuu-med saddle pad (big fluffy white one)
    Veredus Pro-lite Open front tendon boots in white
    Veredus Pro-lite Fetlock boots in white

    I wear:

    Mountain Horse Sportive Rider Long Show Boots
    White Mountain Horse jods with seat
    Euro-star Navy Showjacket with Gold/Yellow collar
    Stock shirt with navy gold check sleeves
    Navy gloves
    Navy JTE showjumper hat with shiny panel down front

    So thats us. I'm just interested to know what people wear when they are competing in SJing?

    I know what your thinking, I'm one of those SJqueens, the ones that tog their horses and themselves right up and then go in and do crap, but generally he is a good boy and has earnt his stuff. Plus I bought this stuff over a period of time, and it makes me feel confident which I feel helps me do well.

    What do you/your horse wear?

    Interesting post this. I havent done a show yet but am almost there and its been worrying me what to wear and how posh to look. I have been amassing a few bits and trying to keep them for best so that they at least look clean! I had to buy new beige jods as my other 2 pairs both had grass stains on and I have a black jacket which isnt at all a show jacket but I reckon I could get away with it. I bougt it from Oasis years ago and it is the same style as a show jacket, double rear vent, single breasted, bum length but it doesnt have gold buttons or a velvet collar. Do you think anyone will know??? I have a stock and pin but no shirt (i reckon i could get away with a plain shirt though.

    As for horse, I was thinking about buying a new bridle because the one i use on a daily basis might not look smart enough.

    I think i also will fall into the category of looking good, performing crap!

    I am so nervous about my first show i keep putting it off (i am only doing a local beginners class!!) can anyone tell me what to expect? Do i have to maintain a beautiful controlled canter all the way round just 'popping over' jumps as they come in my way???? If so the spectators are going to be in for a treat!!!

    And why does 2'6 look perfectly acceptable on a tape measure at home but not as a fence??

    Oh dear oh dear I AM going to dissapoint :D

    Right-ho; we have...

    Bridle- not matching, made out of spare tack found around the yard.
    Black keiffer saddle
    Brown stirrup leathers
    Any old numnah- either NU-med or white saddle cloth
    Leather girth
    2nd hand tendon boots I bought for £5

    I have:

    Breeches- dont have any fancy 'name' but very nice
    Mears tweed jacket
    Long black boots- forget the name again. (I am HOPELESS_ I'll never make an equestrian diva!)
    Yellow shirt
    Green tie
    Green hat

    Not very imporessive is it? But hey- I'm happy, it fits, it works- who cares if it doesnt have expensive fancy names? :D

    And look- I'm so cheap, I don't even have a head!!

    Scraffie - nice to know that someone else admits to using any old numnah etc and bits and bobs of tack. Although I don't showjump so am slightly off topic here, poor Rupert wears Mac's cast off headcollar (Mac is 9.3hh, Rupert 13.2hh but they have similar sized heads!) he also has the shetlands old pony size numnah, my old pony Storm's girth (which is 15yrs old, but Rupert put on too much weight to fit his nice new one!), and he did have parts of Storm's old bridle but now has a libby's webbing one all of his own:D He does have his own saddle as well:) (a Wintec 500)
