A good ride gets you in the ribbons even if your horse cost under six figures.

Using the price of your horse as an excuse is just that, an excuse for lack of preparation. There are good horses that are not expensive.

And really, why is it so wrong that people are willing to spend money on a good horse?


Hey, at least you learned something today, you were sure that the rule did not exist. It does.

As someone who regularly showed rated hunters... I wore my vest often. Those horses that are the perfect AA horses, don't start out that way lol. I generally wore mine under my coat and shirt. It created a nicer appearance, but I've seen plenty of riders at the local levels just wearing it over for their OF classes.

If it makes you feel secure, go for it. And if any one says anything, copy AlwaysBehinds post down so you have the rule number.

at my schooling shows they always encourage the jumpers to wear them, whatever they are doing. You never know how you will ride or how your horse might react at a show.
