What does it take to look like a million bucks at your next show? Approximately $500. Including the tall boots. No, for real! Other than the tall boots, which you could arguably wear for more than just show use, everything on this list is under $100.
Le Fash long sleeve sport shirt in navy plaid, NWT eBay find, $80
Romfh Lexington breeches in white, $96
Ariat Heritage field boots in brown, $289
Reockl gloves in brown, $45
Fossil belt in gold, $26
I consider the helmet equipment and not attire, so it’s not counted in the total.
Total show outfit = $536
I am sure many of you can put together a fantastic show outfit for even less. What’s been the best deal you’ve gotten on a great piece of show attire?
Also, please understand, I don’t consider $500 an insignificant sum. That’s a fair chunk of change for most people, including me, but in terms of how high prices can get on any given piece of riding attire I think $500 is a reasonable budget for a show outfit, especially if you are getting multiple, even daily, uses out of some of it.
