Alot of people aske me what what length jacket should be worn for showmanship. If you go to a breed show and watch the showmanship classes, you will see all lengths of jackets worn.. There is not a specific rule as to whant length is right for showmanship. I personaly like to wear a longer jacket, I show in the "Select" age division in AQHA. Now I am not saying if you are old you should wear a longer jacket, no you need to determine what length works best for your height and body type. Generally speaking, a riding jacket back length is 22 inches, all day length is 24 inches and a showmanship length is 26. But this may not be the case if you are taller or shorter. The best advice I can give is to make sure, what ever you wear when you show in showmanship or any other class, is clean, well pressed and fits nice.
