Trick or treat?

This is Halloween season! And everybody loves it! The magical atmosphere, the warm colors, the creepy aura… The show clothing industry is always in search of new inspirations and Halloween could be the perfect one! You are probably asking yourself how something so far away from horse showing could be a source of inspiration. Here there is the explanation.

First of all: the colors. Orange is the main color if we think to Halloween. It is not often seen on show clothes, so it is original and it will make you stand out! It can be easily paired with a black, dark blue or grey based jacket, vest or Horsemanship top.

Green and purple, maybe mixed together, make me think to witches. They are a wonderful combination that fits every rider, from Youth to Select, and permits you to avoid the more classical black based outfits.

Ruby red is a perfect, elegant, color that can be worn all year long for any level show.

Grey is going to be the must have of 2019 show season. Basically if fits with all the shades I talked about above.

Regarding the patterns, Halloween season is full of ideas! You can get inspired by bat wings, spiders, ghosts, witches cauldrons, pumpkins, skeletons, zombies, and so on.


Makeup is going to be fun too! But we should always remember that we are entering an arena for showing a horse, so we should leave a part the fantastic Halloween makeup tutorials we can see in internet. However, for a “wow effect”, we can create smokey eyes and we can play with lipsticks: orange, ruby red, purple, even black and green.

What do you think about Halloween inspired outfits? Would you wear one of them?
