    Default spinoff: stock ties a must?

    Hi,

    For those of you who know the rules better than I -- are stock ties an absolute must? Some of the new hunter/jumper shirts don't require a choker. Are stock ties in the rules?

    No. You can wear a rat catcher type collar if you prefer.

    Default who has opted out

    Hi,

    Has anyone "opted out" of the stock tie? My rationale is that I often show without much help (trailer with others also showing at the same level). It would be so nice to have one less "essential" thing to track and to be a bit more independent -- not count on someone to "pack mule" my stuff if coats are waived etc.

    Answers are found in the Rule Book:

    The dress code for Training through Fourth Levels is a short riding coat of conservative color, with tie, choker or stock tie, white or light-colored breeches or jodhpurs, boots or jodhpur boots, and protective headgear as defined in DR120.5 and in compliance with GR801.

    The velcro stock ties..saved me. Even at the height of my anxiety at a show, I can still manage to line up the velcro squares.

    Default Truthfully I'm not fond of the look

    I always think of guys in smoking jackets when I see the stock ties.

    I am liking this look:

    Very sleek, love the piping, but $95 :-(

    You need some kind of tie, stock tie, or choker collar (hunter style). You can't just wear a shirt under a jacket. It's in the rules. Even a shirt with piping is not enough.

    If jackets are waived, then you are not allowed to have neck wear or a closed collar.

    StaceyK -

    Those shirts would look sharp, the picture seems to show they come with a choker collar. Colored shirts with white choker/ratcatcher ties are pretty commonly worn by ladies at local licensed shows in Germany at the lower levels and I like the look. Those chokers are wider than the 1" size which was the only option in the past, mostly for hunters.
