New to English Riding
I have been riding for decades, but have just started riding english. My 12 yr old gelding (my avatar) doesn't have the speed to be a barrel horse and he has won some ribbons in open shows for western, so I figured we should go all around at open shows. I have people at the barn where I board that are helping me with my riding position, etc. My question would be what attire is appropriate for an open show? Can you ride in half chaps, paddock boots, breeches, shirt and helmet? Or do you need the boots? Luckily the first open show around here is more of a schooling open show, so I can see what others are wearing. Any help would be great for this newbie!!
