Question Breech color

I've only evented a handful of times in the last few years. A question was posed to me by one of the kids at the barn. Can you wear colored breeches for x-country? I think she wants to wear black ones.

Pretty much anything is allowed for cross country! Black is DEFINITELY ok!! I've worn black, tan, and a dark blue before. I've never seen any one wear like hot pink breeches but I have seen kids wearing dark purple or the tights with the color/design strip on the side. Pretty much anything goes on XC.

Yes, for Cross Country, you can pretty much wear whatever color you want. I personally just go with my beige breeches, or my white - but anything goes.

I ride in my beige ones. I don't really see the point in riding in anything else!

I'm not going to mention anything to her about being able to wear pink or purple. My trainer will absolutely have a heart attack if she steps out of the trailer wearing purple with pink flowers down the side. LOL. Good to know for the future. Thanks guys.

A good friend of mine rides XC in bright purple breeches.

All I can think about is how hard it would be on a super warm day after sweating to take a pair of breeches off to put on another pair then to switch back to the original pair....

Never thought about that .... obviously I don't change mine at all. Ha Ha. Though if this event is like any of the others, there are hours between dressage and XC

^Don't take that for granted! You have to take out braids, untack, retack, groom, change, eat something, etc. It goes by fast!
