Dresses in Driving Classes
Okay, so I spent a lot of money on my prom dress (well only $90, but still) And I plan on showing my stallion in driving next year in AMHA, This year I am just focusing on halter with him since the weather has been making it hard to acually work on driving him, but anyways. In the past when I have shown in driving I have just used the same outfit I use for everthying else (purple slinky with black leather vest and black slacks) but I would like to use my prom dress for driving in the future. I am showing him in classic pleasure, and I don't know if you can wear dresses only in certain classes or can you just use them in any driving class? Please help!
Also by the way,this is the dress I have JCPenney : My Michelle® Embellished Silky Cascade Front Gown
is it suitable for driving to begin with? Lol.
From first glance at that picture, I said 'no way'. It's a very nice dress but far too good to be hanging around horses in. Judging from the photo, it looks to be made of that soft material that horse hair just STICKS to. You'd turn out the be a walking fur ball by the end of the day.
With horses, you do a lot of walking around (particularly at shows). That dress doesn't look to be the sort of dress that you can walk easily and comfortably with.
In regards to driving competition rules, I'm not really in on the driving aspect of equestrianism so it's not my place to comment.
Nice dress but save it for special occasions where horses aren't involved.
I personally think it is a bit bright, low cut and a bit tio much like a party and think something more conservative would be more appropriate
Personally, I would rather see a dress in more this style but I think a jacket to cover bare shoulders and a hat are expected.

Hair is not a problem as I body clip him before every show :). And like churumbeque said, I would only be wearing it right before the class and would immediatly take it off as I do all my show clothes since I hate wearing them, lol :) Personally, I don't think this dress is too revealing, myself after looking up pictures on google. Here are some pictures I just pulled off to show what some people use. I just dont know yet if they are allowed in the divison I want to show in lol! It's a new divison and I am still unclear on the rules :(
From the pics of the competition your dress looks suitable
Wear good foundation garments, you don't want to have an embarassing moment if there is a rough spot to drive over! Have known that to happen at some venues! She didn't even slow down as she tucked herself back in and entered the ring. Have to presume that was not the FIRST time it happened!!
Wow, haha...that would be a pretty embrassing...ha.
