I'll stick to my short dressage coat and helmet. lol.
yup, you'd be allowed to wear a bowler or top hat if you wanted to.

as for the tails, as spyder said, you have to be in the FEI levels. I believe that if you are riding two horses consecutively - as if if you were showing a young horse in 1st level, and your main competition is, say, Intermediaire, then you could also wear the shad in 1st level. but otherwise, only in the higher levels!

Actually no you would still not be allowed. They would however allow time to change dress.

Well, maybe the rules changed because she did. She rode at REGOGNIZED shows with it

I have ridden recognized (and some schooling) for a very long time and as a carded dressage judge I HAD to know the rules. Never was a shadbelly allowed in any dressage level under FEI.

Whatever. I know what my mom did, so I really don't care. I'm not a dressage rider anyway. To slow for my taste.

Too slow for your taste? Dressage is the fundamentals for all aspects of riding - even GP Jumpers do Minimal of Levl 3 Dressage.

Anways - thanks for letting me know about the Shadebelly - I always wondered. I was under the assumption that they were only permitted for higher levels, and not the low levels I do.

I only do Training Level, so I never really researched the rules to find out the facts.

I do appreciate the information!

yea, too slow in a literal sense. The fastest you go is an extend canter, I like being out in the feilds galloping. I do do dressage and do flat work and collection-extention regualrly though

Back on topic guys.......

Ok, so that clears things up. So it's basically a hat for looks.

Shadbellys ARE NOT EVER allowed below PSG dressage PERIOD. Not even if you have to switch horses. There is a rule for competition organizers (and it's common sense) to allow 30 minutes or more for riders to switch horses.
I have been involved in running numerous recognized shows and am helping out running a CDI** this year, so naturally I basically have the rule books memorized :P
