    It its with Jane weatherwax you'll want to make a bit of extra effort in the turnout department.
    No ratty old clothes and I would ride in a collared sleeved shirt tucked in with a nice belt, breeches, tall boots shined until you can see your reflection and absolutely clean tack. As well a white pad and correctly wrapped polos or white boots. No loud colours, you hair should also be in a neat bun or tucked up into your helmet.

    Jane is very nice, however is a stickler for a neat appearance, as are most judges at her level.

    I think it's safe to say if you showed up in draw reins it would reflect quite poorly... A running martingale is slightly more acceptable, but when riding with a person of this calibre it is always best to be safe rather than sorry.

    Good luck! Be on time and courteous!!

    Anebel makes a good point on the polos. If aren't positive that you can wrap correctly, please don't use them. And white polos, or black on gray horses, is standard. Keep the colors home.
