    What is typical? Stock ties?

    So I'm just wondering...
    What is typical to wear to a hunter or equitation or show jumping phase of eventing? Do people always wear a stock tie? If you wear a stock tie, do you always wear a stock tie pin?
    I'm very confused
    Thanks!

    In a regular Hunter or Equitation class with a traditional hunt coat? No! A regular show shirt, snap/wrap collars are what's in. You do wear a stock tie with shadbelly, but those are reserved for classes that request formal attire (derbies, classics, etc)

    If you wear a stock tie, yes you need the pin! For hunters or eq I would just use a ratcatcher. In sj phase of eventing you could go either way.

    I would only wear a stock tie for Dressage. I wouldn't wear it for hunters, jumpers, or really anything else. Just wear something like this Essex Classics Coolmax® Wrap Neck | Dover Saddlery and a pin. A lot easier and more common

    Can you really wear this particular shirt in purple or pink or blue or yellow in the show arena?

    You will want to have multiples of your show clothing AND keep the extras in your trailer/changing room areas, just in case of ripping.
    You cannot go wrong with starting with white.
    Buy your show clothing as cheaply as possible. ONLY invest in more expensive if you really become serious. Right now I would spend the most on your every day schooling clothes, and boots.
    State Line Tack has better prices.

    Dover is a little high end, but I love their stuff.
    Now, if you're talking tack, that's where I'd spend money, on good quality show saddles/bridles.
    You wash your show clothes and polish the show boots right after a show and store them in bags to keep them clean.
    Do NOT use your show clothes/tack to school in or they will LOOK like you did. =D
