 What type of horse do you have?  What class is it?

Id personally say the top one as it is the most tweed like looking and most inhand classes, the handler wears tweed. 

I wouldnt wear just a shirt.  I think it makes the look unfinished.  A shirt and waistcoat would prob be fine tho.

I would wear the top one (its very nice), as suggested it looks 'tweedy'. Black jackets are never usually worn for in hand unless its something like best turnout out. Even then, people wear tweed type jackets.

Good luck for your shows!

Re: Show Jackets

 Hi there,

 

I was always under the impression you should wear tweed (or the top coat in your pictures) for pure-bred horses and navy or black for part-breds, in both ridden or in-hand. Saying that it doesn't really matter at local level as long as you look smart the judges appreciate the effort.

 

Please can someone correct me if I am wrong as I am looking to enter some qualifying classes this year??? 

 

Kind regards

Kim
