    Default Clinic help

    So Im super excited because I have a jumping clinic tomorrow and all my horsey friends have done them but Ive havent had the time nor money before now. In all the excitement I forgot to ask some of the basics as this is my first one... so I thought I should ask my fellow COTHers

    1. What do I wear? Ill be wearing my coach's helmet since I don't have a show one
    2. What should I expect in regards to the fact that I have never jumped the horse before...long story
    3. Anything else?


    Thanks in advance!

    Spotless breeches, polished boots, and a comfortable, fitted top that allows the clinician to see your position. This time of year in our area, that usually means a turtleneck with a fitted sweater and/or a vest for warmth.

    Use a hairnet, wear gloves, and have a stick and spurs.

    Horse should be gleaming and perfectly groomed, wearing whatever you normally use to school in (but please, conservative colors - no pink floral pads, bright polos, sparkly anything!) A plain white square pad plus a half pad OR a regular fitted pad is fine. Tack should be cleaned and gleaming with all metal polished to a high shine.

    Have fun! Clinics are wonderful opportunities!

    Thanks!
    That's great to hear about the turtlenecks. It will be at 7:30pm and the forecast says 55-60 degrees, so maybe a polo (one piece of info my coach did recommend) and something like underarmour underneath?
