You might have heard the term ‘T-Shirt Hack Show’ being bandied around lately.. but what exactly are they?
A T shirt hack show is a more casual, fun approach to traditional horse shows. They’re great for new riders and green horses to get prepared for the show season – without the full on preparation needed for higher level events.
The dress code is more casual and often horses are left un-plaited (but obviously still nice and clean).
So it’s more casual – but what should you actually wear?
Many T-Shirt hack shows have a minimum standard of a shirt with collar and sleeves (polo) though some are a little vaguer and state ‘neat casual’ attire.
Either way – you can’t go wrong with a high quality, well fitting polo shirt.
T-Shirt Hack Day Clothing Guidelines:
– Well fitting & stylish collared shirt. With short or long sleeves.
– Clean, pale jodhpurs or breeches. Beige or fawn are your safest bet.
– Australian standard helmet – but you already knew that 😉
– Short or long boots. If you’re wearing half chaps – make sure they’re the smooth leathery ones in the same colour as your boots – not rough suede ones.
Do you have any suggestions for riders attending their first T-Shirt Hack Day? If so, please let us know in the comments 😀 ?
