caseymyhorserocks- I got that pad that's white with pink lining, a black roma half pad, and woof brushing boots that's black with pink straps. Will that be okay?
Also, for SJ and dressage, is a black polo with white breeches, black belt, and black gloves ok?

for dressage and stadium you must wear your show jacket and ratcatcher/ stock tie. unless they wave coats, then you have to wear your white shirt with ratcatcher or stock tie. the shirt must have sleeves [not sleeveless] and i would only wear white if coats are waved because i have seen TDs threaten to eliminate people for wearing colored shirts. i personally always wear my jacket because i think it looks better and you only have to wear in for a couple minutes.

I used to show in an obnoxious bright blue, untill I realized that other people judge you on what you look like. I stick with black and white now... If you watch people at shows, you never see proffesionals wearing crazy colors. You see people rolling their eyes or giggling at the people who wear Barney colors or camo etc.... It all depends on how seriously you want people to take you. My old trainer used to make us wear black and white because we were representing her bussiness, so you might want to check with the BO or PC before you buy everything in pink zebra. On another note; you must wear a white shirt and saddle pad with a coat in dressage. Where I am, you can jump in any color, jacket or no jacket. You just need a vest.

Okay, I got that pad that's white with pink lining, a black roma half pad, and woof brushing boots that's black with pink straps. Her jumping/xc bridle is havana brown and it has a regular noseband. Her dressage bridle is black and is padded with white, with a regular noseband. My jumper/xc saddle is a Courbette Arosa. Will that be ok? I don't have a dressage saddle yet, but i'm trying to find a cheap wintec dressage.

If you plan on using the white and pink saddle pad for dressage, I'd ask the TD when you get to the show. Usually, NO color is allowed in dressage, but I don't know if they'd make an exception because the pink is so small. Bridles are fine, but what bit are you using? Don't stress about finding a dressage saddle. I competed to training level in my jcross country saddle for everything :)

I would use my all white pad for dressage. I'm using a french link eggbutt snaffle. :)

Oh okay :) And you can use the french link eggbutt in dressage, so it looks like you're set. Just remember your dreaage test- that's where I always have problems lol :)

I realize people sometimes judge you, but, what can I say, I like to express myself. My personal cross country colors are dark purple and lime green. Though, as a working student I will most likely take on my barn's colors until I am only representing myself again.

I don't think you "need" a skull cap. They're very popular, but there is no rule for it. Here is the eventing helmet rule : Helmets Rules – Are you confused too? : EVENTING NATION
