Job interview at a barn- appropriate clothing?

I've been asking around, emailing, calling, etc, trying to find a job in a stable of some sort. Should it pay off, and I score an interview, what would be appropriate to wear?

I've always been taught you want to dress nice for an interview, no matter what it's for. But at a stable? Jeans and a nice shirt? I want to make a good impression, obviously!

I would treat it just like any other job interview and dress professionally.

If I was a BO or someone looking to hire someone to help around my barn, I would consider someone who came to an interview professionally dressed over someone who came in even nice jeans and a nice shirt.

I wouldn't dress up too much. A nice polo shirt and a pair of black pants (not sweats, but not dress pants) should do the trick.

I've always followed the axiom of dressing like you would if you were actually showing up for work at that place. Show up for a job mucking stalls in a business suit is going to get you placed in the to prissy to work here club. Wearing a nice button up shirt/polo, blue jeans and boots would more appropiate for a barn job.
