Hunter Jumper Show Clothing

Posted this in another area, but not sure if that was right, so Im posting it here to.

I have my first show coming up in November, and I just went out and bought my show coat, boots, etc. Im just wondering if the colors are acceptable for the show ring :P Here's what I bought:

Sterling Collection Classic Cool Show Shirt- but in this color. I couldnt find the color I got on their website.

Ladies Platinum Collection Show Coat- couldnt find my exact jacket, but it's from that line. Mines pinstripes, however, are a teal blue, so it matches my show shirt. And the overall jacket color is a dark grey.

Ovation Finalist Field Boots

Ovation Extreme Helmet- Mine is in black and grey though, but I bought a black velvet cover for it.

Cheapo Riding Gloves- :P

Equine Courture Breeches

And I went to sallys beauty supply and bought a hair net, but one that goes around a bun, not your whole head. Is that okay to wear? I also have a barrett(sp?) clip to go around the bun and hold it together.

I've ridden for a long time, but this will be my first show. I think Im showing in Hunter Cross Rails, maybe a flat class as well. Not sure yet.

BTW, the horse Im riding is most likely going to be a bay. Depends on the school horse we decide Im a best match with.

Yes..all that stuff is perfect. I was taught to put all my hair under my helmet in a hair net..not have it sticking out. But what you have should be fine.

I would have said a tweed jacket but I'm not sure if it is different over there. A neat bun would be fine, maybe have a scrunchy on it (depending on your age) just try to tuck all lose hair (that not in the bun) away under your hat. Good luck :) x

Darren- Over here jackets are that style. Some hunt clubs still use tweed for clubbing as it is traditional.

Grace--I think that is pretty close to the jacket I have, except mine is blue with the purple pinstriping :) I wear a purple shirt under it. You will be fine with that. I saw the grey and really liked it, but I havent seen many grey show jackets around here, so went with the more conservative colour. It is still considered "in" though.

You can purchase riders hair nets and they cover your whole head.....but as long as your hair is neat and tidy, not hanging out all over the place, you are fine. There is another thread about show hair if you are interested. Need Hair Advice!

I think you would want to put your hair up in your helmet. A judge onece came up to me and told me to put it in my helmet.

I hope you do good!

Definitely hair up in helmet. If you have long hair, there's a specific technicque using a low ponytail, carefully combed halfway over your ears, then flipped up and pinned before being covered by the hairnet. I think it's described in another thread on this forum and referred to as "hunter princess hair" Combined with small stud (not hoop!) earrings, it's a neat, classic look.

I like the "show bows" for schooling and informal shows, but if you're wearing a jacket, go with the full hairnet.

Darren, the only places I see tweed jackets any more is on cubbing or ratcatcher days out hunting. I haven't seen one in an American show ring in 30 years, and that one was on me, and I looked out of place even then.

I braid my hair and flip it up into an almost horse like braid before putting my hairnet on because flipping your hair under your helmet will compromise the fit if you didn't buy your helmet to fit that way. And some people's hair is way to thick to do that properly! Everything else looks great though!
