Hopefully in January I will be able to enter my first show, schooling of course. I ride hunters but will only be competing on the flat for now. Another boarder who may also show with me went to check out a show this weekend to see how it is, and she said that pretty much everyone had a sloppy turnout. Unwashed saddle pads, polo shirts not tucked in, etc. Well now I'm worried that if I enter a show like this one I'll be overdressed and stick out. My instructor said I should buy a hunt coat, show shirt, etc. so I did. Would dressing in all the "fancy" show clothes (half chaps and not tall boots though) be inappropriate for a schooling show such as this one?
