When you find the Navy coat with light blue piping that comes in LONG LONG sleeves, would you mind posting a link?
I ride a chestnut with brown tack, brown boots, a black helmet, white gloves, white breeches, and a pad that's white with brombeer and gold trim (a homage to his Cadre Noir heritage)
Right now I wear a dark grey pikeur coat, but I'd love a navy and light blue coat.
The people that WANT to blend in are the ones afraid they have nothing to show off :-)
Try the Eurofit Ulanka. That's what mine is. Navy blue with navy velvet collar and navy velvet sleeve (about 1/4 the way up the arm). Piping is a silvery blue, and the coat lining is periwinkle.
The Ulanka is what I just bought (used, of course...new would never happen). I can't wait for it to arrive.
Right horse, there is a similar-looking pad available at http://www.padperfect.com/ - I don't think it's the exact same pad, but it looks pretty close. These pads have good reviews on the eventing forum.

For what it is worth, I think your horse is lovely, You look great (in your profile Pic) and What you are wearing sounds just fine, My Dressage tack was brown.
So was all my tack, as I used the same for all three phases. Well used to have a Dressage saddle, It was wrecking my horses back.
If you are neat and tidy that is what counts. Have a blast with your awesome horse! Edited to add.. Oh the coat is beautiful!
