    Default Turnout for horse and rider

    This is a basic guide to horse and rider turnout for showing. I will be adding to this post. I hope it will help newbies to showing.

    Rider turnout for Ridden Hunter,Intermediate show hunter type, Riding horse , Riding club horse and Show cob classes

    Rider
    • Beige, cream breeches, no white jods or breeches, long black boots with straight tops and garter straps.
    • Shirt and tie and tie pin. Shirt colour should be cream or pale blue. No white shirts.
    • Tweed jacket. Without velvet collar..
    • Bowler or black hat for men, navy velvet for women ,no black hats for women.
    • Brown gloves, brown leather or malacca cane.

    • Spurs should be worn, but dummy spurs are acceptable. No spurs in intermediates.

    Horse turnout for Ridden Hunter, Riding Horse and Show cob classes

    Hunters and Intermediate Show Hunter.
    • A brown Double or pelham for open classes, snaffles for novices, although you will not see snaffles in novice class` at affiliated level. If a rugby pelham is used, then a sliphead improves the look a lot. Plain browband and noseband.
    • A brown straight cut or working hunter saddle will show off the horse's shoulders and movement, so is preferable to a GP.Discreet numnah. Leather girth,.
    • Quartermarks are allowed for hunters . The hunter should be plaited, tail pulled and banged, whiskers , facial hair , inside ears and heels trimmed.

    Show Cobs.
    A brown Double or Pelham for open classes, snaffle for novices. If a rugby pelham is used, use a slip head head. Plain browband and noseband. The courser the cobs head the thicker the noseband should be.
    • A. straight cut saddle will flatter the shoulder and movement better than a GP. Leather girth the same colour as your saddle.
    • No numnah, or a discreet one that matches the saddle and shows as little as possible.
    • Quartermarks are allowed for cobs.
    • Should have hogged mane, tail pulled and banged, and feather trimmed close to the leg. Tails should be cut to about three inches below the hock at rest, or hock length when moving.

    Riding Horse
    • A brown double or Pelham , snaffle for novices. An plain flat noseband and a plaited velvet, ribbon browband to complement your horses colour and your jacket and tie.
    A. straight cut saddle will flatter the shoulder and movement better than a GP. Leather girth the same colour as your saddle.
    • No numnah, or a discreet one that matches the saddle and shows as little as possible.
    • Quartermarks are allowed.
    • Riding horses should have plaited manes, tail pulled and banged, whiskers, facial hair , heels and ears trimmed.

    shirt and tie is correct down here, but stocks can offer more neck support, and so generally hunts wont mind either way. you can always ring and ask if you are worried, but especially your first meet they wotn midn what they do as long as you are presentable.

    Adult Horses should wear there ridden bridle with pelham or double with the reins taken over the head.
    Like this


    The handler should wear tweed jacket with shirt and tie, gloves, navy velvet riding hat smart trousers (dark for light legs, light for dark legs) and smart shoes that you can run in.

    This is dad's turnout but women's is pretty much the same and you can wear a riding hat.

    Brown bridle? Why a pelham-don't have one! Would a snaffle be OK?
