I have been making horse show clothing since my kids started showing in 1985. My, have we come a long way since then. I am still traveling to the APHA shows in the North West and watching for new styles and trends so that my jackets will reflect the latest in the show ring.
My jackets are made from a variety of medium weight suitings, not spandex. I find that they are comfortable to wear with both stretch and breathability. These materials resist wrinkling and are easily washed.
The design work uses fine leathers such as lamb
skin & metallic pigskin, plus accents of sparkly or holographic material, beaded or sequined lace, large jewels, ultra suede, and/or other embelishments. Everything, of course, is trimmed with 1000's of top quality crystals. Custom jackets start at $550.00
Matching pants are also available and are made of the
same material as the jacket, OR, if you have a favorite tailor,
I am happy to supply the material. Pants are $50.00
For a more casual look, spandex rail shirts are an economical choice. They are light and comfortable in hot weather and come in an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns from which to choose. Most rail shirts are $150.00. Over the chaps style are $175.
