As a person who teaches clinics on a regular basis, I will tell you what I appreciate in the people participating.

1. A spotlessly clean horse who is almost competition clean and pulled. No braids, please.

2. Spotlessly clean tack. Clean saddle pads. Clean wraps or boots.

3. Rider in clean and polished boots (half chaps if you must), clean breeches, clean polo, medical card and yes, for XC you must have a vest. A vest is just fine to wear in SJ and I encourage it.

To show up on a poorly groomed horse, dirty tack and poor clothing just shows disrespect and a sloppy approach to learning, IMO.

Hear hear, lol.
I only wear gloves when either a) in the dressage ring at a show or b) when it's below freezing (and sometimes not even then). I loathe riding in gloves.

As of right now, I'm not sure if my mom will be able to come to take them. If not, I may have to hire a spectator to take!

I would rather run laps around the barn than wear gloves daily.

You get more and more laps the more times it happens ! If you get your strides wrong you get situps ! If anyone in the lesson sasses you all lose your stirrups. If you lean or look down you get push ups. If you swear at your horse you get push ups. Haha it never ends !

One time I waved at my sister when she was running laps and I got laps. Btw you run in your tall boots and if its winter you run in the sand arena haha
