Now available from State Line Tack, the Wendy Vest and Super Slinky! Picture a Western Show outfit that's cool as a breeze, and just as fresh in the arena. Shapely faux leather vest with western collar has slenderizing vertical applique accented with sparkling Austrian crystals.

Coordinating Wendy Super Slinky has curved bejeweled motifs on front and back, with elaborate sleeves the judge will see as he views you from the side. Wear vest and Super Slinky together for seamless sophistication! Or by itself, the fully-decorated slinky stands alone in the show ring. Hand wash. Western Show Vest and Super Slinky sold separately.

Even Cinderella needed help getting dressed for a special occasion - here are suggestions from the experts at Hobby Horse for western show ring presentation. Always review the association rules for the shows or breed you compete in, and try to observe your competition before you invest in show apparel. The show ring is a traditional place, but there's always room for a new look, as long as it's legal and in good taste. Have fun and good luck!
