What You Should Bring to the Horse Show
The following apparel is appropriate for academy events: helmet or derby, tailored vest, tailored shirt, collar bar (keeps collar neat), necktie, Kentucky jodhpurs, jodhpur boots (short boots; be sure to polish your boots before the show), leather or other riding gloves. Earrings are optional, but should be stud-type (rhinestone or pearl).
For hints on how to style your hair in a neat bun for showing, see below.
Other things to bring to the horse show include: hairspray, brush, hair nets, bobby/hair pins, large safety pins (for back numbers and emergency repairs), number pins (similar to lapel pins—used to fasten back numbers), extra pair of jod tie-downs (elastic band under the foot), and make-up (age appropriate).
