    Unhappy What to wear to my first show tomorrow!?

    Hey everyone :) I am doing my first show tomorrow. I have been riding for 3 months and I'm unsure what to wear. No coats/jackets are requires or anything. I just got told to dress neatly. I am 14 and I will be wearing black jodhpur boots (no chaps or gaiters to because I can't find ANY that fit my short wide legs!) and I have to wear black jodhpurs (don't really want to but I can't really afford some beige ones right now) but I'm stuck at what shirt to wear!! I don't want to be to under or over dressed. Nobody round here wears polo shirts so I would feel uncomfortable and judged wearing one :/ any help appreciated thanks! Oh and I forgot to add its a show at my lesson barn!!

    You could wear a button down shirt. And a polo would look nice though if you don't want to what ever. Why don't you ask your instructor?

    You should wear what ever is the best thing that you have. You can never be over dressed. Starch up a button up, or wear your best polo. At shows when show clothing is optional it shows the judge that you respect their time if you go above and beyond the requirements and dress up anyways. As for you being scared of getting possibly strange looks, take it as they feel threatened by you, and are wishing that they turned themselves out better. When you look good, you feel more confident and ready for what ever is to come.

    Long live your Rein
