    Thanks for the long- but helpful- list of needed items corporate pride!
    I compete in 4-H shows, and I have most of what is needed. I ALWAYS have 2 bridles with me because you know, expect the unexpected. Lol

    Another question (everybody has been so helpful so far by the way): I am aware that I need a safety vest, can anybody tell me or provide a link to an article, etc. as to how to properly fit one of these vests? Also, where would I be able to purchase a medical armband?
    Thanks again for everybody's input!

    Of course you can ride dressage in a jumping saddle! I'm lucky enough that my mom was a really competitive dressage rider before I started riding, so I inherited her dressage saddle, so I never needed one. I like riding in my dressage saddle because I have a VERY long leg, and when I ride dressage, I ride with a very long leg, probabaly a good 5 holes longer than my jumping leg. So It's VERY hard for me to ride dressage in my jumping saddle. (my jumping saddle also has thigh blocks in the back, so stretching my leg to where it needs to be is pretty hard in my jumping saddle :P) I would say that around novice to training is where a dressage saddle really comes into play, but I've never evented without one, so I don't know how dificult the tests are to ride in a jumping saddle

    Vest companies are pretty good about letting you know how to measure for your vest, but in general, it should reach down the right above your tail bone, and cover to at least the end of your ribcage, if not lower.

    A armband can be bought through any place that sells eventing products. (mine is from dover)
