I haven't shown in ages, but this coming season I will be doing a few schooling shows, probably just flat classes maybe a few over fences type thing (my mare is still young). Tomorrow I am planning on taking a shopping trip to pick up some much needed new riding clothes. I don't think I'll be getting new breeches just yet (though I do really badly need a pare), I will just be getting a few tops and such.
But anyway! Can I just wear a colored polo? Can I get it from anywhere? I have a bunch actually that I just wear to the barn currently from Aeropostale - obviously I have no idea if that's okay in the show ring, but since it's just a schooling show and it's fairly simple, like there's no big letters across the shirt or anything, could I use one of those? I get them for a pretty decent price, and for somebody who is limited on what they spend on new clothing, I'd rather not shell out big bucks for a couple tops so if something like what I've already got will work, awesome.
& what brand/style of breeches would be good for simple schooling shows? I need it to work for around the barn too, all of my current breeches are getting a little on the old side ..
Also! Do I need a coat? Or can I just show in the polo or show shirt, whichever?
