Okay, Woof boots. Just the all around-ers. Or a specific kind?

Also...last lesson the visor broke off of my helmet. So, it's new helmet time, too. It was an IRH Equi-Lite. Needless to say, I want one with a little more quality that isn't going to lose the visor so quick. I don't need a show helmet as I do have a velvet cover, but I suppose I should do a new helmet and use this one for school. Suggestions?

Love the Charles Owen! I have the Jr8, but their skull caps are also awesome

I have a Charles Owen Skull Cap. I love it! I ride in it for shows and just for everyday things. In the summer it keeps your head nice and cool and you can put covers on it to make it look however you want. They also come in different colors :) And just the brushing boots. I've had my pair for 3 years and they've held up. After you put them in the wash, they're as good as new.

I love my Champion Ventair skull for xc. It's brilliant.

I have this helment in navy... The Dublin Arista, not sure if you guys get them in the states or not but it is super comfy and not too hot in summer.

I use these boots in show jumping/stadium jumping as well as my show jacket

And these boots xc - although he is not wearing them in the pictures as I left them at home... oops. (excuse the pink... it was for breast cancer awareness) I prefer actual XC boots, although plenty of people use brushing boots. Brushing boots have padding to protect the inside of the leg from knocks, rather than reinforcing at the front and behind to protect the leg if it hit a solid jump.

Eventing is awesome fun. You will have a blast.

I'm hoping to work a lot for the week of spring break so I can pay for all of this stuff.

Excited though, the omnibus for Catalpa Corner is coming out this week!

Hunt around online.... or wait for sales.

You don't have to have everything all at once. I only bout the xc boots in October, GK was in the open fronts for xc and sj for most of the year. If you are only jumping small jumps, it should be fine.

As long as you have the basics eg;
Horse - very important :)
Saddle - GP one is fine
Saddle blanket - you can use your white dressage one for all 3 disciplines
Number holder - well we need these in Australia, anyway :)
Jacket - for dressage and SJ
XC gear
Beige/cream/white breeches
Tall boots/jod boots and gaiters
Body protector

Everything else is optional, so don't sweat it if you don't have abosolutely everything. A good thing to read is the rule book, it should tell you what is required for each discipline as well as some points you may or may not be aware of.
