If you are a member, you must have full dress turn out. But guests should dress as "traditional" as they can. The Members have heavy woold jackets for the season, where Guests don't, so the Hunt suggests wearing proper colored jackets to stay warm.

I wore my show blouse, my stock tie with pin, and a black pull over fleece to remain with traditional colors.

If you are a member, you must wear your colors and your full proper attire. As you see, they do.

My hunt is fairly laid back, but they prefer everyone to look as nice as possible. Part of it because of the hunt, but most of it is respect to the land owners. If it is really cold, then we get a lot of members wearing their riding winter jacket or a vest, but normally everyone looks nice. I only just bought a show jacket this year, so I prefer it not to go into the field.....but I make sure I wear pretty much all black up top, my hair is done neatly.

^ Yeah, agree'd^

I had my hair up in a hair net, black helmet, show blouse with stock tie and pin, clean beige breeches, tall boots, block gloves, black pull over fleece to keep me warm.

During warmer weather, I'll wear my black show coat.

This is me on Cannon at yesterdays hunt....with many layers on! Lol. He is in a borrowed bridle as his owner forgot his at home.

ETA....I am wearing half chaps and paddock boots that are a chocolate brown colour. I wish I had worn my field boots, but there isnt enough room in them for thick warm socks. Plus I feel more secure in my half chaps, and need that especially when riding on a horse I do not know. Field boots are slippery!

You look great! I see a lady in the background with a jacket that has a beige collar - is that the traditional colors of your hunt? The ladies here have blue collars.

Especially when the Whipper-In's and the Head Huntsman start blowing their horns! That' when the excitement trickles through your veins!

Nelon's ears perk up, and he starts chomping on the bit when those horns blow. He LOVES this sport as much as I do! And he shows it...lol. Everyone was laughing at us yesterday, it was a hoot!

I wish there were at least drag hunts here! Looks like I'm going to have to do some more traveling and swindle a random horse for some fun times!

Have you considered starting your own group? Can you do that?
