    I've credit most of my images (should be enough, i work in copyright, and they aren't being used for financial gain), but 90% of them were 'gifted' to me for use by Native pony forum users - most of the pics above are of people i know

    brown tack is pref, but black is fine Same with joddy boots! Worth keep an eye on ebay though, often get 2nd hand jod boots on there in brown Keep them for shows & they will last for ever. I've had my 'show' boots for nearly 8 years!

    • Short oxblood/brown boots for juniors (under 16) or adults on small breeds
    • Long black boots for large breeds, traditionally with a garter strap. Black short boots with smart gaiters are a common sight and perfectly acceptable.

    I don't understand why you would wear a brown tweed jacket with a blue velvet hat and black boots and brown gloves. Surely you would wear a brown hat and brown boots too? Or black hat with black boots and either black or beige gloves to match your hat or your jodhpurs? I think a mix of different colours messes up the overall picture and detracts from the turnout of the pony.

    It is all to do with tradition. Ladies should not wear black for showing apart from your boots. Long brown boots are worn with tweed at certain times of the hunting season, It is considered not to be your "best" attire but working attire. And brown gloves and kane are also correct. Not an M@M but the norm in showing classes. Not much wrong with the over all picture, just looks proffesional.
