Appropriate Stock Tie for National Level Dressage

I like to pride myself on being a little bit of a fashionista...but I'm not really sure where the line is in terms of National level competition and appropriate attire (this will be our first year).

Can someone tell me if this is appropriate? Or is something like this frowned upon (and perhaps a traditional style stock tie would be better)?

It sure does look elegant. I personally have never seen this in use at any recognized (national level) show. However rules are always being changed so while I would say it probably is not legal your best bet is to send this picture to the CEF and have it verified.

Even if it's "legal", would something like this be "frowned upon" you think? Thoughts?

I think it probably be frowned upon like, for example, Edward Gal's Kur music with Lingh.

Lol Arksly!

It looks elegant but a little over the top. I prefer a simple stock with a neat, small stock pin. More this style: WAGNERS

I've got a couple of them, the simplest being a pre-tied white cross over stock with straight pin that has 3 diamontes on it.
The more 'complicated' being a lovely off white patterned fabric with sky blue piping and a round blue and gold, SMALL, pin.

I loved his kurs, lol. I knew someone who had a tiny rhinestone heart on her bridle and the 4h club made her cover it up with electrical tape.

I'm with you on his Kurs I have to say, I'm into the 'different' music choices that are coming out now rather than straight down the line classical ;) Got to add a bit of fun and cheekiness into it sometimes!

Far out about the rhinestone heart on the bridle, that's pretty rough! Would hate to think what they'd do with my browband!!

Love it! But there might be some issues...
