*phew* ok glad I got that out. Show bows are very *very* out if style.
As a 10 year old, she should be in paddock boots and garters. She can show with her hair in two neat braids, which is the norm, or if you want, she can put her hair up under her helmet, which is what the older riders do. She will look more the part in braids and garters.
Please don't do the show bow, though. Yech!!

We also live in NC, so it might be a regional thing. It seems like all the girls have bows. I prefer simple and classic. The two white ribbons at the ends of her braids looked adorable, and her instructor said they were perfect and she doesn't need all the fancy bow stuff unless we want to wear them. The judge didn't seem to give a hoot, because she did ok. The biggish bows just look too young. Anyhow, thanks for all your input. She has the show bug and now wants to show every month!
