Hello, I am new today and I was guided to start a new thread, so to get to a higher level I am going to have this poll about show clothing. I have not seen any polls on this site, so I am not sure if it is allowed or not. If it is not allowed or is frowned upon please kindly let me know. Thanks! Hope you enjoy! Feel free to fill out Western or English and if you do both, like me then go ahead and fill out both. :)

For Gaming Riders

What do you wear as a top when you perform (barrel race, pole bending, etc.)? Some people wear Tshirts and others wear plaid riding shirts, some people even wear show shirts when they game.
I have a long sleeve purple shirt I wore while gaming. It is slightly shimmery but pretty basic

What do you wear on your legs? Do you ride in a certain brand or style of jean? Or do you wear darkers colored jodspurs when you game? Some people choose to wear chaps. Do you?
A pair of jeans, hopefully without holes(I learned that one the hard way.) Any jeans that are clean and fit. I'm not picky.

What do you wear for socks and boots? Do you wear normal everyday socks or riding socks like zocks and ovation? Do you wear cowboy boots, riding boots, or paddock boots? If so, what brand?
I just wear a pair of normal white socks and my cowboy boots or lace-up ropers. I currently have Ariats and have had Ariats for years in the past.

When you game do you wear a helmet or a cowboy hat? If so, what brand do you wear?
For 4-H we are required to wear an approved safety helmet. I currently have 3 Troxels.

For Western people

On your head, depending on your age, what do you wear on your head? Do you still stick with the helmet or leveled up to a cowboy hat?
If I'm riding I wear a helmet, but if I'm doing showmanship or halter I wear a hat.

As a top what do you wear? A show shirt? What does it look like?
I either wear one of my showshirts(I have 2 a blue and cream one and a purple and creme one) or a simple nice long sleeve collared shirt

As pants do you wear jeans, dress pants, or showmanship pants? What do you use for chaps?
I ether were black jeans or with my purple show shirt I will wear the matching showmanship pants.

On your feet? What do you wear? Cowboy boots or riding boots?
There's a difference between cowboy boots and riding boots? I just wear either my Ariat fat baby boots or my Ariat ropers. I also think I have some Justin's running around here somewhere.

For the English people(I've ridden and shown English a few times at a couple local shows)
What type of helmet do you use? Depending on your dicipline of course.
Black Troxel Helmet with a black velvet cover

What do you wear as a top? Polo or show shirt and jacket? What brands and/or types?
Show shirt with green hunt coat.

On your legs? Jodspurs? What colors do you prefer?
I wore a pair of long beige, off-creme whatever you want to call it pants. They weren't actually breeches or jods. May I suggest if you take this route not duct taping the pants to your ankles before getting on your horse. You could accedently rip them. :oops:

On your feet? For socks? For boots? Brands and types?
Normal socks, and I took the feather/flag leather things off my western ropers and called them lace-up paddock boots. :wink:

Just want to point out this isn't a POLL, it's a SURVEY. They're two complete and distinctly different things. I really wish people wouldn't use them interchangeably. :?

Western:

On your head, depending on your age, what do you wear on your head? Do you still stick with the helmet or leveled up to a cowboy hat?

Cowboy hat for horse shows, I usually wear a helmet at home though since I typically ride by myself.


As a top what do you wear? A show shirt? What does it look like?

I have a couple of show shirts. Most are made of a stretchy fabric. Two have a collar and cuffs and the other one doesn't

As pants do you wear jeans, dress pants, or showmanship pants? What do you use for chaps?
I wear a pair of cheap brown walmart pants that match my chocolate suede chaps pretty well.

On your feet? What do you wear? Cowboy boots or riding boots?
I have a pair of brown ostrich leather cowboy boots. I will usually wear spurs too depending on the horse.


English:

What type of helmet do you use? Depending on your dicipline of course.
I have a Troxel helmet for schooling and a hunt cap for shows.

What do you wear as a top? Polo or show shirt and jacket? What brands and/or types?
I have a sleeveless white ratcatcher that I wear under a navy hunt-coat.

On your legs? Jodspurs? What colors do you prefer?
Beige or khaki breeches for horse shows. Any color tights or breeches are fine for schooling, sometimes I even wear jeans, but that's not as comfy.

On your feet? For socks? For boots? Brands and types?
Socks? I have the slippery socks for tall boots, but my calves have gotten too big to wear them :-( I'm on the hunt for new ones (praying I don't have to buy custom!). I mostly wear paddock boots and half-chaps since my tall boots cut off the circulation to my leg lol.

As pants do you wear jeans, dress pants, or showmanship pants? What do you use for chaps? Slacks that match my outfit for showmanship and riding that I got from Hobby Horse and split leather custom chaps that match my outfit and pants are a must in riding classes.

On your feet? What do you wear? Boots dyed to match my outfit.

I bought a slightly used Troxel Grand Prix Classic from my barn. I got it for $20 so I was extatic. It fits her pretty comfortably and is not too bulky.

What do you wear as a top? Polo or show shirt and jacket? What brands and/or types?
I am terrible with brands. For her Huntseat classes her trainer wants them to wera dark jacket with any complimentary color shirt. So we went with a dark blue jacket (not the standard navy but more a darker color then navy with some texture) and a light purple long sleeve shirt. For Eq classes she has the same jacket (cause it cost a freakin' fortune) and a white short sleeve show shirt.

On your legs? Jodspurs? What colors do you prefer?
She had a darker beige pair of breeches, kind of caramel color for lessons that we were going to just use for show but we decided to go with a lighter pair. Then at the show she got a stain from her boots after her first Championship class and the next one was her Championship Eq class. Since she was in the running for a ribbon we decided to by a pair from the kiosk at the show. They were cheaper then the ones we bought at the tack store but they fit so much better and they wash really well. I think they are TuffRiding or something like that.

On your feet? For socks? For boots? Brands and types?
Most of the girls wear those long boot socks with the different patterns. I think they are called Zocks or something. My daughter is super tall so she wears a size 9 W boot. We went with synthetic boot by Saxon (I think) dress boot with the zipper back. We tried on the leather ones but for teh life of me we couldn't get them off. And since I used to show SS so we only had the short paddock boot, I was nto used to the war of pulling off a tall boot. I swear I thought her foot was stuck in that boot for good.

They are comfortable and clean easy. I am sure the Ariats or the more expensive boots will last longer but since she is only 11, I wasn't about the spend $300. :)

I used a velvet hunt cap, I throw a helmet cover over it for schooling. The brand is IRH.

What do you wear as a top? Polo or show shirt and jacket? What brands and/or types? White show shirt with a black coat. The coat looks kinda like a hunt coat and kinda like a dressage coat, so I get away with using it for both. The brand is Devon Aire.

On your legs? Jodspurs? What colors do you prefer?
I use really pretty light colored tan Devon Aire breeches

On your feet? For socks? For boots? Brands and types?
For socks, I use.... Socks:). For schooling I use paddock boots and half chaps. My paddock boots are ariats and I think im in love! My field boots for shows are hand-me-downs, im not sure of the brand.
