    I absolutely love your shirt! Love the fitting and the color! Do you know where it came from by any chance?

    I have the firm belief that you should always look the part. If you're going in for a job interview, no matter how small or entry level the job may be, you go in looking clean, neat, conservative and professional. The same goes for a hunter show. Out of respect to the judge and the sport, you go on looking clean, neat, conservative and professional. Generally, any kind of wraps or polos are not allowed in any hunter classes, even schooling shows. I don't think square pads are suitable for hunter classes, ESP colored. Even if every other person were to were a colored pad and matching polo, I'd opt for the shaped fleece pad and at least a show shirt if you have one.

    Kelly, it's from Hollister.

    I do not own a show shirt, I'll end up getting a white polo.

    But I am the type who will not show with out my jacket even when the judge makes them optional because of the extreme heat.

    Neat and tidy horse and rider with properly fitted tack is first thing after a well trained and cared for horse.
    I agree.

    The only variation I enjoy is to use a half pad only, white or natural colored sheepskin (off-white) instead of a full pad. I think it looks very "neat" and tidy, as long as the half pad fits the saddle well.
