21-01-08, 01:11 PM
which browband should i use at the show this weekend, i am doing turnout and it is an A&P show (ag show) I'm in the Park Hacks (148.5 to 158cm).

I have a almost navy blue jacket (bit brighter) light banana joddys, and a banana stock, with either a silver or gold stock pin.

Oh and my mare is a plain bay!
ANy ideas greatly appreciated, or other colour combinations, let me know i can just make up another! (not that i need more lol)

Hi Foxni i would go with the third one, the blue will bring out the colour of your jacket while not adding to much extra yellow to the picture :)

I brought TD's first stock today so were discussing colours with the lady that made it,
and because she saw that we had a chestnut she mentioned to us not to put to much yellow based colours into the picture, as it can look drawn out (but i think on a bay you should be able to get away with a bit more).
we ended up getting plain boring white as we are not positive what colours we will go with and figured white is fairly safe :) !

Cheers Pauper

The truth always wins in the end!

You should use a plain leather browband for turnout classes.

for turnout plain leather either flat ot raised depending on your nose band, if it's smartest on Parade you can then have the ribbon browband

everyone uses ribbon browbands for turn out!
Must be different here.
Not smartest on parade as far as i know, what is that anyway?
I always thought it was only hunters not to use a browband on for t/o

Plus there is no way there is enough time to change browband between turnout and the second class (which i am in, novice) they are pretty quick.

I'm prob going to use the 3rd one, as i spent months deciding on colours for her, and that was the one i made. the other blue one i made as a sample, have used once and have for sale at the moment, i just wanted to see if they would work before offering them for sale!

I think i will put proper flags on the 3rd one though instead of the ribbon,
do you think it would look better? thanks
