I'm going to a recognized event this weekend, entered in BN. For dressage am I okay wearing a navy hunt coat, puke green hunter breeches, white shirt, and ratcatcher? Should I use a stock tie instead of a ratcatcher? I've gone with straight hunter attire at unrecognized events but this is my first recognized. If I really need to I could probably beg, borrow, or steal a dressage coat. I don't have much choice with tack, it will just be a brown close contact saddle and brown bridle with a plain snaffle.
I doubt this is the kind of thing that would get me kicked off the grounds, but I don't want to look too silly
Actually, you're even legal with half chaps as long as they're smooth leather. I would stick with the choker with the hunt coat, but navy is acceptable. Just make sure your shirt is white or light color. You'll be fine, have a blast!
