    Auditing Clinic - what to wear?

    Ohmygoodness.

    I'm going to be auditing a George Morris clinic. It's sort of spur of the moment.

    Can anyone tell me what is appropriate to wear? Are nice jeans and tennis shoes OK? I've only been taking lessons for a year and have no idea if something nicer is expected. I figured no sandals just because there will be horses around...right? But I don't have to dress like I'm riding since I'm just a spectator...right?

    I would stick to nice jeans or jean shorts depending on the weather, a polo shirt, classy baseball cap (I would use my EquestrianCoach hat), and some tennis shoes with low socks. Spectating a clinic doesn't usually call for super nice getup, and you certainly shouldn't wear riding clothes unless you plan to ride. Just something that is comfortable, while still being respectful. Someone that may have spectated a GM clinic specifically can chime in, as I haven't.

    Enjoy it!! I'm super jealous! Take notes for sure! :)

    Whatever you are comfortable in. You will liely be sitting on hard benches for a long time, so dress for comfort. Bring a situpon pad.

    Great, thanks! I'm sure much of it will go right over my head, but I still don't want to miss the opportunity.

    Bring a notebook and a couple of pens! If you're allowed to record, then record!

    Wear clothes in good condition - clean jeans (no holes! No stains!) and a clean polo shirt are fine.

    Definitely bring a cushion to sit in.

    Thanks all. : ) I wore jeans, tennis shoes, and a collared riding shirt -- it turned out to be the only shirt with a collar that I own! Lol (not counting the cute little bottom up that's cute with boots for country concerts ; ) ) it turns out other women I went with were as nervous about what to wear and googled clinic videos to see what the auditors had worn so we had a good laugh over that.

    What a great experience. It was a lot to try to absorb, especially since my baser of knowledge and experience is still soooo small, but it was good! It was nice too because he focused on things that are probably very fundamental to good riding and can be applied by anyone, not just upper-level jumpers.

    Anne Kursinski also rode and talked through what she was doing. I admit, I was not familiar with her before this, but now that I am I realize what a privilege it was to see them both ride.
    Cynical25 and Marcie like this.
