Riders from my barn just went to a local show at another barn. There was everything from coats and rat catcher shirts and rubber boots, to anything you could imagine, including one Saddlebred rider in full turnout. As the weather was warm, we wore black polos, tan breeches, tall boots, etc.

If you look neat and put together, you should be fine.

The ones you just pull on to ride, that don't tie.

I second the idea of calling and asking.. better not to assume. We went to a local training show and we were expected to dress up, the only dress down part was we were allowed paddock boots and half chaps. But we wore the show shirt, the pin, the breeches, and the show coat. Oh and velvet caps
Ok thanks! The only reason I'm guessing is because I haven't found the exact show I'm going to go to yet, but when I do I will call and ask for sure.
Oh I like those boots a lot! Thanks!

Contact the show organizer and ask. Our saddle club has requirements. You must wear tall boots, breeches, sleeved shirt and helmet or you can not enter the ring.

It is definitely a better idea to be overdressed than under. At the same time, an unrated local show, especially if it is schooling, doesn't require nearly the same as a rated. In the end, unless you're doing equitation, it won't make much difference anyway, especially if you're really good:).
