Shop for Ladies' Show Coats

Generally speaking, when shopping for a show coat, you will want to shop based on your discipline.  While show coats for Dressage, Eventing, or the Hunter/Jumper arena all look similar, there are subtle difference that make each appropriate for their venues.   
 
Hunter/Jumper coats are generally three button, double vented coats, that are slightly shorter to allow for movement while jumping fences.  They are typically dark colored, but often in subtle "dark on dark" plaid, stripe or tweed patterns.  Melton Coats are a type of hunter coat designed specifically for fox hunting.  They are traditional wool, and typically very conservatively styled to meet the requirements of hunt clubs. 
 
Dressage coats are nearly always solid black, although we are seeing an increasing number of very dark solid navy coats.  They are longer, four button, and generally single vented.  Traditionally, they are "frock" coats, meaning they have waist seam around the middle.  This style accentuates the long, tall, deep in the saddle position of a dressage rider.
 
Cross-over coats are exactly what they sound like! These are coats with some features of dressage coats and some of hunter/jumper coats.  These types of coats are very popular with event riders, and are increasingly popular with jumper riders as well.  
 
Shadbelly coats are the formal attire of the show ring! These tail coats come in a dressage style and a hunter style.  The dressage usually has weighted tails (to keep the tails from flapping around) and shiny metal buttons.  The Hunter version generally does not have weighted tails, matching buttons, and frequently contrast color "tips" on the front.  Shadbellies are used in only high level, formal classes.
