Planning For The Show Season
Is it too early to start planning for the 2019 horse show season? I think right now is the perfect time to start planning! Instead of waiting until the last minute and spending money that you don’t need to for the show is the main goal for planning for show season now.
And the biggest reason for planning now, other than taking the pressure of yourself, and your debit card, is because if you are patient, and have a little bit of money saved for showing you can start putting together what you will need for the upcoming show season.
And if you buy things one piece at a time, it makes it a lot easier to be able to afford everything that you need to show your horse.
And today I wanted to share with you the awesome show coat I found at Riding Warehouse. And just so you know, this post does contain affiliate links. Meaning if you make a purchase from one of the links I have provided, I may receive a small commission. This is at no cost to you. It just helps me to continue doing what I do on my blog and YouTube channel.
Finding the perfect show coat has been made a lot easier because of all of the choices that are available from places like Riding Warehouse. They have affordable show clothing that looks nice! And with the updated fabrics, no longer do you need to wear a heavy, wool coat that could only be dry cleaned.
Nope, now we have washable fabric coats that look great. And I did say they are affordable right?
I have been looking for a black coat that looked nice, but was lightweight. The idea of wearing a heavy and hot coat at a horse show had me looking at the lighter weight soft shell fabrics. And I found this coat made by Horze.
This crystal accent show coat is lightweight and breathable. And it features unrestrictive fabric as well as rear vents for complete freedom of movement. So you aren’t like a stiff board on top of your horse. You can move in this jacket!
It also has a water-repellent shell. Making it easy to wipe off the dust that inevitably happens at a horse show ground. It has a tailored look, and very flattering fit. There are metallic buttons down the front which snap together easily. There are also small and subtle crystal accents along the zippered pockets which gives a little bit of bling and style to a relatively traditional show coat.
And the best part about this jacket is the price. Right now the jacket sells for $65.88! That is a fantastic deal!
Trying On The Coat
So now that I have given you the details, and cost of the coat, let me show you the coat in person. It is really nice. The fabric feels like a lightweight jacket. I really like the material it is made from, and I can tell that it is water resistant. It’s also stretchy, which makes it easy to move in. I really like the new soft shell style of coat.
It’s easy to put on, and get the buttons snapped shut.
And for someone who is really hard on things (me) It seems like it will hold up.
The coat is very flattering, and it feels like it has been custom made for me, even though I just chose the most appropriate size for myself.
And if I get it dirty, which I know I will, I can just bring it inside and throw it into my own washing machine!
And no wrinkles! I have had another soft shell jacket, but it wrinkled very easily. Not this coat. From the moment I pulled it out of the bag, no wrinkles. This will surely make for a more polished look in the show ring.
Riding Warehouse makes it easy for you for the sizing too. Here is their size chart for this jacket. The one I am wearing is in size 12 (or large).
Not only do you get the ‘size’ but also the measurements, so you can make sure to get the jacket that will fit you the best.
This show coat may not be around for very long, it’s listed as a closeout deal at Riding Warehouse. But if you are looking for a new show coat, and don’t want to spend a lot of money, but want to look great in the show ring, this coat may be the right choice for you.
And right now Riding Warehouse has an incredible offer going on. If you buy a show coat from them right now, you will also get a gift card! If you buy a coat under $200, you get a $25 gift card.
