I'm pretty sure it's not a fashion show, so it really shouldn't matter if maybe someone finds men's show clothes more comfortable or if they can't afford tall boots or whatever else.

Perhaps she couldnt make it in the "prissy" world? Sloppy legs? Flat hands? I really don't know and don't care.
My question was to attain what was allowed so I would know what my daughter and myself could start out with when I find a new horse that can perform this particular discipline. As to the half chaps I don't find fault in wearing them to the lower lvl shows nor to the schooling shows. I to think that you should at least try to dress the part I mean a mans neck tie???? At least get a nice pin instead.......
