I wear a polo. If the arm band bothers you on bare skin, buy a polo with longer sleeves so you can put band on your sleeve. If it's a cold day I wear a long-sleeved shirt under my polo.

Any type of boots are acceptable for XC. Make sure they don't retain water, though.

I usually wear a polo or my Goode Rider polo.

Good luck at the event! :)

Polo in warm weather, under armor/turtle neck in colder.

Open front boots are ok on the front if they have a strike pad in the back over the tendon. I would use closed boots (like brushing boots) on the back legs. Stay away from any boots that absorb water.

Just have fun! =)

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong
