Hunter/Jumper Show Question
My trainer has said that I should start showing Shamrock, so I've been looking into getting all of the required stuff for showing on a local hunter/jumper circuit. He is just starting jumping, so I would enter him in just flat, walk, trot, canter classes.
It's been YEARS since I showed last, seeing as the barn where I ride isn't a big show barn, so I have grown out of all of my old stuff and have completely forgotten what kind of girth, etc. I need.
I'm good with all of my attire, I know what I need. I also know that I need a white fleece saddle pad, but I completely forgot what kind of girth. Should I get leather or a fleece girth? It seems like when I used to show, my old trainer would have us use one type during one season and another during a different one. Maybe it was fleece in the summer, leather in the winter or vice versa? I don't know, can someone help?! Haha.
