Location: on a farm, duh!
Well for shows I had
Dressage: ME: White breeches, White show shirt (I recomend Goode Rider, SO comfy!), Stock Tie (get a pre-tied one with velcro, so much easier!), a stock pin, my black feild boots (Ariats, I HIGHLY recomend them!), Black Show Coar, and my Charels Owen Hampton Hat. I also use a hairnet in my hair. Wear black gloves ALWAYS unless your hands are perfectly still! If they arn't the judge sees the woboly hands alot more in white gloves! I also wear a spur in dressage and sometimes carry a dressage crop.
HORSE: Black bridle and loose ring bit (always double check to make sure your bit is aproved! Last minute tack changes arn't fun!), black dressage saddle, and white pad. I also use a black breastplate in dressage because I feel it just polishes the whole look off :)
Cross Country: Me: Black polo shirt, black tights, royal blue vest (get a certifed one, I'm planning on getting a Rodney Powell), Boots, my black Skull cap, spurs, whip (Don't go into battle unarmed!), gloves (I like SSG's). A watch is also nice to have if you know how to have your minute markers and how to ride your pace correctly (something your trainer will help with!). A medical armband is also manditory.
Horse: Saddle and bridle (duh), blue saddle blanket, 5 point breastplate, woof boots (taped), and bell boots.
Stadium Jumping: Black coat, white or beige pants, white show shirt and stock tie, feild boots, and armband again. I wear my skull cap in SJ because it's jumping and I want to protect that noggin better than in dressage. Again, I wear spurs and carry a crop. I also have my hair up in a net for SJ and wear gloves (black).
Horse: Same as XC only I use Woof Open fronts and bell boots and a white saddle blanket insted of blue.
For schooling and trail rides, I wear riding tights (usually Kerrits, best brand IMO), and a tee shirt and sports bra or a tank top. In the winter I will wear a hoodie and fleece lined breeches. Some brands that I like are:
Jumping a horse = Getting wings!
