    Default Would It Be a Dressage Sin ...

    if jackets get waived at a rated show and I was wearing this:

    Wouldn't be a sin, just a disqualification.

    How do you get disqualified? The collar would have to be opened and folded down so as to not look like a tie.

    8. In locations with high average heat and humidity on the date of a competition, management can publish in their prize list that jackets will be waived for the du- ration of the competition. Alternatively, management can announce prior to or during a competition that competitors can show without jackets when extreme heat and/or humidity is forecast. This waiver applies to all classes including FEI classes at National Competitions. However, competitors must wear protective head- gear and a shirt with sleeves and collar, without neckwear, and without decoration except as described under .14 below. T-shirts are not permitted. Members of the Armed Services or police units may wear summer uniforms. BOD 1/19/13 Effective 4/1/13.

    I have worn light blue when jackets are waived. Sleeves and no stock tie or ratcatcher collar is the thing to remember.

    I thought it had to be "conservative" color?

    You can now wear a lightweight vest with your shirt (sans stock tie and open throat) when shirts are waved. A friend of mine wore a stylish black vest with her white show shirt at a recognized show last weekend. She looked extremely classy.

    Default Yes.

    Frankly, it's hideous. That is so absolutely awful, I wouldn't even wear it under a jacket, in case I fell off and someone might see it.

    Good heaven's I hope it was a gift, given to you by someone who would be either highly offended or fire you if you didn't wear it.


    I'm usually not this brutally honest, but you did ask. If you'd asked me in person I'd have said "Well, that's different".

    What is wrong with light blue, grey or white? Even palest pink. But pond slime on snot green? No. I cannot imagine what color horse that would compliment.

    Awww. I like the blue shirt. Didn't someone here say that anything with a patter, stripe or logo means disqualification?

    Dang. some of my cutest riding shirts have a logo or piping or some such. Waaaaah!

    Issues of personal taste aside, I don't think you can wear anything with a pattern. DR120.8
    And that shirt definitely has one

    I've seen this shirt in person and it is actually quite attractive. Now, I hate the collar and you would need to open it at a show. That being said I don't see you getting DQ'd at a show. I've seen people wearing a black shirt with gold bees scattered over it. That I thought was hideous but to each their own. You could always ask the T.D. if it can be worn.

    If green looks good on you then wear it.

    I have worn solid green at a show, but anything with a pattern is groudns for disqualification. Pond slime green is one of my favorite colors. Wear it for clinics, but I wouldn't take the chance at a recognized show.

    No, your shirt may be any solid color. This shirt would get smeone disqualified because of the pattern.

    The rules used to 'suggest' a conservative color ... same for saddle pads. Don't know about newer rules.

    I believe the rule says solid or nearly solid colored shirt, so I would not wear the shirt shown - very distinctive pattern, pretty sure that breaks the rule.

    Geesh, I love the shirt! I wish I could wear that color but sadly pasty pale does not go Looks great on darker or olive skin tones.

    I wouldn't wear it a show though because of the pattern...although I see folks show in subtle pinstripe shirts so who knows!

    Does that even count as a pattern since it's the same color? I don't think it's hideous.

    Best bet, take it to the TD and ask before your ride.
