Red Western Show Shirts
Western Show Shirts are Flashy in Red
If you are trying to decide on your show color for the coming season, why not try red? Red is a bright, vibrant color. It will draw a lot of attention to you and help you win that next ribbon!
Red is most often paired with black but you will frequently see it with black and white, silver, gold, or blue.
Solid black with simply red trim is another great option.
Red looks especially good with a black, or black and white, horse, but red will go with most color horses.
Men Look Great in Red Too
Women aren't the only ones who want to stand out in a show ring. You can find some pretty flashy show shirts for men in red too!
Attractive Show Shirt for men. Draw attention with this one! It's a stark white with stand out red. The blue adds a little pizazz.
Not only do red shirts look great, but the western boots to match really makes it all come together.
Black With Red Trim
Black and Red or Red and Black?
This shirt isn't red, it's black with red trim. Looks sharp! It just wouldn't look the same if you were wearing a blue shirt or a purple shirt with all the red on the horse's saddle pad. Make sure you're color coordinated so you have the best, most coordinated, look in your class.
Find a Good Deal on Your Red Western Show Shirt
If you don't want to pay full price for a western show shirt, you can find a good deal on a pre-owned one. Most of the time they've only been worn a few times and have been kept put away in a garment bag.
Check out these videos to see all the great colors that people wear for western showing. They range from purple to blue with every color in between. Most people like to have a lot of bling on their shirts also. A red shirt with black bling would look really awesome.
Red Western Boots
If you're going to wear red, you might as well go all the way right down to the boots. I would probably pick black boots to go with my red shirt but if you can find red ones that match just right then it would be okay.
Black Chaps To Go With Red Shirts - Red looks really sharp with black!
Sharp black chaps go perfectly with a red shirt. You could try another color like tan but the black will flow much better. If you have the right styles and color horse, navy blue or white would look nice too. I've seen white worn successfully but you have to be very careful not to get it dirty.
Red Saddle Blanket to Match Your Red Show Shirt
Red Saddle Blankets
At the horse shows, you want to have a saddle pad that matches your shirt. It pulls your whole facade together and gives you a finished look to show off. Any tack store or online tack store will have red saddle pads and saddle blankets.
