For Gaming Riders
What do you wear as a top when you perform (barrel race, pole bending, etc.)? Some people wear Tshirts and others wear plaid riding shirts, some people even wear show shirts when they game. I have a long sleeve purple shirt I wore while gaming. It is slightly shimmery but pretty basic
What do you wear on your legs? Do you ride in a certain brand or style of jean? Or do you wear darkers colored jodspurs when you game? Some people choose to wear chaps. Do you? A pair of jeans, hopefully without holes(I learned that one the hard way.) Any jeans that are clean and fit. I'm not picky.
What do you wear for socks and boots? Do you wear normal everyday socks or riding socks like zocks and ovation? Do you wear cowboy boots, riding boots, or paddock boots? If so, what brand? I just wear a pair of normal white socks and my cowboy boots or lace-up ropers. I currently have Ariats and have had Ariats for years in the past.
When you game do you wear a helmet or a cowboy hat? If so, what brand do you wear? For 4-H we are required to wear an approved safety helmet. I currently have 3 Troxels.
For Western people
On your head, depending on your age, what do you wear on your head? Do you still stick with the helmet or leveled up to a cowboy hat? If I'm riding I wear a helmet, but if I'm doing showmanship or halter I wear a hat.
As a top what do you wear? A show shirt? What does it look like? I either wear one of my showshirts(I have 2 a blue and cream one and a purple and creme one) or a simple nice long sleeve collared shirt
As pants do you wear jeans, dress pants, or showmanship pants? What do you use for chaps? I ether were black jeans or with my purple show shirt I will wear the matching showmanship pants.
On your feet? What do you wear? Cowboy boots or riding boots? There's a difference between cowboy boots and riding boots? I just wear either my Ariat fat baby boots or my Ariat ropers. I also think I have some Justin's running around here somewhere.
For the English people(I've ridden and shown English a few times at a couple local shows)
What type of helmet do you use? Depending on your dicipline of course. Black Troxel Helmet with a black velvet cover
What do you wear as a top? Polo or show shirt and jacket? What brands and/or types? Show shirt with green hunt coat.
On your legs? Jodspurs? What colors do you prefer? I wore a pair of long beige, off-creme whatever you want to call it pants. They weren't actually breeches or jods. May I suggest if you take this route not duct taping the pants to your ankles before getting on your horse. You could accedently rip them.
On your feet? For socks? For boots? Brands and types? Normal socks, and I took the feather/flag leather things off my western ropers and called them lace-up paddock boots.
