In 1952, Arthur A. Callister began trading wool with his father in a little shop on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City, Utah. Noticing how many customers were in need of quality tack to outfit themselves and their horses, AA Callister's Western Wear and Tack was born! Over 50 years and many satisfied customers we are still a family owned tack shop still located on the original site. We are proud to represent the traditions and lifestyles that made the West famous. We are also proud to feature some of the finest tack, clothing, and equipment made. Come live part of the American West today!

Fashionable Western Wear Items to Wear to Horse Shows

Western wear show outfits need to be in good form if you want to wear them during this years shows. Western show season has already started. The beginning of the year is a great time to make sure that your wardrobe is up to par.

Out of date clothing choices will catch judges eyes, to be sure, but not in a good way. Find items that will bring you attention but for the right reasons. Western wear show items need to be in fashion this year, not three years ago.

Upgrade worn items or out of style items and put the rest aside. Some western wear items may not be suitable to wear to this years show, but they can still be used in the future for other events. Look through your closet and see if you have any items that need to be replaced.

It is important to find western wear clothing that is comfortable and will fit you well. You will do better in your show event with both of these purposes in mind. Show clothing has a purpose and it is important to remember that.

Black is a very popular choice because there are so many things that can coordinate with it. It offers a lot of versatility as far as clothing choices go. The majority of riders choose to wear black as their base color with western show clothing.

Riders are being judged for more than just style, and wearing dark pants and chaps will make movements in your legs much less noticeable than light colored pants would. Black is a classic color and works well with show riding. If you are bored with the color try spicing it up with a bright colored cowboy hat instead of brightening up the rest of your outfit.

Natural tones are the next popular choice. Different colors can be worn besides black if you do not want to wear it. Consider using colors that can coordinate well together, such as greens, blues and browns.

Try on your outfits to make sure that you will be comfortable riding in them before making your choice to stick with them. You can see what styles are still in season by visiting horse shows before you compete. This will give you a good idea of whether your western wear show apparel is still in fashion.
