First hunter show- Questions
Hi! I've been doing dressage, eventing and the jumpers and am comfortable in the attire department for those shows but I am entering a local hunter show next month and have no idea where to begin :confused:
First- it says jackets are not required. What kind of shirt should I wear? I have a nice FITS long sleeve show shirt that is plain white. If I wear that do I wear a choker or leave the top buttons open? Or should I just wear a long sleeve polo. If someone could post a pic of appropriate schooling show attire I would GREATLY appreciate it.
Second- do I have to ride in a half seat all the way to the fences? I usually ride in a half seat and then sit down as I am approaching the jumps.
MTA: Do I have to use a standing martingale in the O/F classes? My horse goes in a running but has never gone in a standing...
Also, what kind of saddle pad should I use? I have an OTTB pad that is white with a gold logo on it and also a Jockey Club TIB pad that is white with the logo on it... Should I get a plain pad to use?
