I'm going off to a riding school next year, and I'll be riding hunter jumper and dressage, showing in both.
These will likely be pretty formal shows, not like a local show where almost anything goes, but not a top-rated show.
I've ridden hunter jumper forever, and so I have a black show coat.
Looking at dressage coats, with the exception of a shadbelly, I really don't see the difference between a dressage coat and a hunter coat. The only thing I'm seeing is sometimes more buttons? I feel like it would be more significant than that!
Can you guys explain it? Also, is there a kind of coat I can get that I can use for both?
