View Full Version : I have fringe envy. Please show me where you get your clothes.

Fringe envy: (noun) Longing after the gorgeous clothes Western riders get to wear for showing. I do believe this was coined by COTH's own Merry.

Where do y'all do your shopping? I stalk Hobby Horse sometimes. I want to see pretty things.

Seconding what Raleigh's Mom said if the half Arab is the one you posted- he has the dearest expression!

Got my shirt and chaps from Hobby Horse--well, they're hobby horse brand that I got a store. I like the shirt, but it's not my favorite, but I was desperate and that was the best one they had there. After wearing it for 3 IHSA show seasons, I'm done... lol.

I just got this shirt (in "gold") in the mail yesterday...it's a little "brighter" than I was expecting but half way across a ring it won't be bad.

My chaps I got from Schneiders on sale for $125 (smooth black leather chaps w/fringe).

Not sure how long I'll try my hand at western with my mare so didn't want to fetch for anything top of the line or custom :)

There are a lot of neat "small businesses" on facebook that I have found. :) I'll try to round up a few links, off the top of my head there is lol cowgirl that has a few.

Renn, I am FB friends with a woman who makes the.most.beautiful chaps.
They are works of art.
I'll look up her business name for you.

I keep telling myself if I lose 30lbs I can get a pair............

If you're handy with a sewing machine, you can make your own. SuitAbility has patterns you can buy, and then make your own vests, jackets, etc. You buy whatever material you want.
