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.
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.
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.
