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.

Yep, polo shirt.

Yay! Very glad that was the answer..one more question, im planning on using open-front boots for stadium, that's okay to wear cross-country too, right??

I always wear a polo. I have mostly short sleeved polos, but I also have one that's long sleeved which is nice when its chilly.

Thanks, but about the boots?

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! :)

Thank you! Its just a starter event, and we are just going beginner novice, so we should be fine(: I am however having a hard time to decide what im most nervous about! LOL.

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! =)
