ATTIRE IS A MUST,SO FOR THE NEWCOMERS,WE THOUGHT THAT A RECOMMENDED
DRESS CODE WOULD BE INFORMATIVE AND HELPFUL.

the class,Ladies should wear a neat collar and tie with either
a Tweed or a Navy Blue Jacket,lemon (not yellow)Breeches and
Boots,Leather gloves and a leather-covered Show Cane (not
a dressage schooling whip) should be carried.
See Pic 1 which shows a Lady rider in Tweed and collar and
tie,here pictured with the immaculate Gentleman Judge modelling

hat and hunting stock should NOT be worn in the class.It would
be in order to wear a hat with discreet safety harness,if
desired.Please note the plain (not show pony )browband
on the Arabian.
now for those lucky ones who reach the Championship!There
are two alternatives for Ladies and two for Gentlemen. The
Lady must wear a low-crown Silk Top Hat..This
is accompanied by a Navy Blue cutaway Jacket,waistcoat
(not brightly coloured),and a well-tied Hunting Stock in white
or a pale pastel colour (not polka dot!).Lemon breeches (not
white or yellow).Again, leather gloves and show cane complete

no alternatives to the above. Hunt Dress, or any amalgam of the

Dress -- which consists of collar and tie, Waistcoat,
Black Morning Coat and proper Riding Trousers made for
the purpose.Black (Jodhpur-type) boots are worn
