<<< As I mentioned I have a bit of barding although it is a darker blue and doesn't "pop" against my mares bay coat.>>>
You said "pop". Do you mean an action, as you are riding? Or do you mean you want it to stand out more color wise?
Again, what you have now will do and you can always change it later.
<<< I just want to re-use that headstall and breast collar since I have it.
I actually plan to bring two horses, and have the perfect saddle blanket type barding for the other horse. >>>

If you are just looking for something to set up alongside the tournament field this is a good alternative to one you might need for overnight camping. If you are looking to do overnight camping, not all kingdoms have such events, I recommend taking a look at the SCA-CAMPING section in the Florilegium.

If your sewing machine is one of the older ones, with metal gears, making your own tent is possible, although a lot of work. Here is a starting point. See other files in this section as well.

<<< And I need something for my head AND to cover my helmet. >>>
Are you taking about your equestrian helmet? I'm not sure what our local equestrians are using. Those doing jousting are using metal helmets that, i think, meet the SCA combat rules. On a horse you'll need something which will stay on your head. A simple veil may work.
