Horse Show Fashion - Jackets

Hunt coats have come a long way from the traditional green or navy pinstripe garments that dominated the showring throughout the '80's. Technical fabrics are very popular, offering better movement, breathability, weather protection, and stain resistance.

I have to say I love the new trends, even though for me, in the hunter ring, I think they'd be a little out of place. I love them for the jumper ring though, and even the eq ring for the more conservative ones (like the ones with just a little piping on the collar). I especially love the ones that have two little buttons at the top of the vents in the back -- such a good look. Thanks for finding all these gorgeous examples!
