Eventers: What's Under Your Show Coat?
|My little hunter princess heart just can't get away from this look..|
I also realized that I honestly have no clue what's "in" or appropriate to wear under your jacket for eventing, whether it's for the dressage or show jumping phase, and that there seem to be a LOT more options out there that are not my tried-and-true hunter/jumper white tone-on-tone patterned, button-down, long sleeved show shirt with a collar.
So, what do you wear under your show coat? Long or short sleeves? If you wear short sleeves, does the lining of your jacket stick to your sweaty arms and make you wildly uncomfortable? Is this not an issue with the newfangled 'tech' fabric jackets? (I am a traditionalist, and my show coat is a lightweight wool blend with a satin lining. So sue me.) Does your eyeball twitch a little bit if there isn't 1/2" of sleeve sticking out from the cuffs of your coat? (Mine does) Do you do a snap collar? Quarter zip? Does it even matter, because stock ties are a thing?
Please educate me.
