Show Jacket

I will start showing my Haffie under saddle this season and need to get a new jacket.   I was wondering if anyone could suggest colours or stockists for some nice jackets.  I am open to any suggestions because I just can't decide.  He is chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail and has black tack, which is the biggest problem I have been having trying to find something to go.  I am considering swapping to Havana, he will need a new saddle soon any way as he has changed in shape since been broken in with his current one.  I will mostly be doing general showing classes initially to get the hang of it all again, Green Horse and back in Novice but I hope to do working hunter towards the end of the season. 

Cheers :)

I think brown tack would look a lot better on your boy as technically brown is correct and I think black always clashes on a chestnut body.

 

Is he registered? This is the link to the haflinger breed society so this should help you.

Here are some links to some rather nice show jackets as you will require a tweed -  a nice deep green one with a red overcheck I think would look rather nice with a yellow shirt and red/yellow spot tie

I rather like the Lisa and the Zara. I think the Romy is nice but a bit plain for my personal preference
