    Is that a list of stuff required to attend shows "with the barn" or on your own? If it's just "with the barn" I think I'd be hauling to shows myself...Pshh...

    Wow. That's really specific. Overall, it has most of the items, but it's weird how brand-name specific it is.

    Wow... I don't really get it.

    Do you have to represent your barn whenever you show? Is it like 'insert barn name here' show team? What happens if you want to go to a show yourself and no one from your barn does. Can you go? Do you still need to wear all that fancy stuff?

    I don't understand your barn mentality lol... Most people here just keep their horses in paddocks or agist, and go to whatever shows they like wearing whaever they like!

    WOW! I'm glad to be on an eventing team! Lol We have like matching sweatsuits and jackets and stall gaurds and blankets, but they aren't REQUIRED. Can you cheat and get Ariat or some other brand breechs? Are they like going to check the tag! Lol I would ask why you had to have all that!

    What if the certain brands she recommends don't fit you right? I know people who can't get a CO to sit comfortably for their life. They have to go the GPA route.

    But, overall it seems pretty standard - and most hunter barns like their riders to match :]

    Get the JR8 Charles Owen. That is what I have and it was only $140...and I absolutely love it. I even tried on the GR8 and I still liked the JR8 better.

    I understand that they want everyone to look alike but that is really specific.... I didnt think the brand of what you use should matter as long as everyone is uniform. However you are with that barn and if you want to show with them then I think you have to do what is required. The BO just wants everyone to look nice because it makes the barn look appealing and could potentially bring in more clients.

    If I were you I think I would just start saving my pennies or see if anyone else has used stuff that you could either borrow or buy cheaper.

    I think looking for used is a good plan.
    If your doing your own grooming which it sounds like, I don't understand why they specify the product you use. As long as your horse is turned out nicely as the other riders at your barn no one will know which brand of shine spray you use! That is a bit too picky to me.
    I do understand the BO wants her clients to all be uniform in appearance though. In color I understand but telling you you have to wear blah blah brand JESH.
    Good luck in your shopping again look for used !!!

    I can actually understand the restrictions on colors of things for your horse, like your schooling pad and sheets. They want your barn to match and represent the barn. If you are showing rated shows I don't think this is uncommon. Still sucks though, that you have to buy all that all at once to start. Maybe you could talk to your trainer and explain that your budget isn't quite up to everything at once, and ask what things are most important to get first, and build up as you can. Maybe you can borrow a couple things for the first shows (ie saddle pad, dress sheet to get to ring) so that you can still match.

    What I do see as a problem is requiring certain brands. Not everybody fits the same brands as well. For example, lots of people prefer Ariat breeches to TS, and they are perfectly acceptable for the "A" circuit. And helmets, it's well known that different brands and models fit differently - and really proper fit should come before proper fashion. The list makes me think the concern is more for fashion and trends than overall turnout. I don't think it should matter if your stuff is quality and fits well.


    In any case, get thee to eBay
