    Question How To Fit a Hunter Shadbelly

    I am currently on the search for a shadbelly because I will be showing in the horse finals. I have been looking everywhere and I have found that they are cheapest on the internet but here is where my problem comes into play, I don't want to buy one too big or too small and I want it to fit me for a while without shrinking, stretching, etc. So how do you fit a hunter shadbelly?

    The fit changes from one manufacturer to another. But it will be the same as that particular manufacturer's hunt coats. So if your favorite jacket is a Grand Prix 12, then get a shad in the same brand/ size.

    They will not shrink, stretch or etc. anymore than a hunt coat will.

    What are the horse finals?

    Oh thank you. The horse finals are actually called the Horse Medal Finals and the top 12 in the horse medal division qualify. There is also a Pony Medal Finals too.
