A watch isn't necessary for a beginner - in fact, I'd rather see a BN/N rider without it. Your trainer should teach you to be able to feel what 250 mpm is, 350 mpm, 450 - and if you maintain a good 300-350 mpm around a BN/N course you'll be fine, time-wise.

I was going to say the exact same thing. Also, I'm pretty sure in the USEA rulebook, at the very back, there's a checklist given of all the items you could possibly need at a show. Either that or it's in the omnibus. Either way, they may also have it online at USEA - United States Eventing Association (Eventing, Combined Training, Three Day Event, Horse Triathlon, Equestrian Sport)

I think that if you are an experianced rider you should wear a watch. My trainer is ok with m usin one at BN because she knows that I like going way overtime ;) it keeps me on pace

I never wear a watch for Beginner Novice. I did at Novice because I started getting more competitive and knew my horse really well, but for those going at BN, it's way more important to get the feel of your horse and ride him, not the clock.

Yeah, but I do have a feel for my horse, and I can stay on time, it's just nice to know where I am plus, minute markers mean nothing if you can't keep on time.
