Horses will be assigned at the discretion of the instructors and directors of This Old Horse.

Dress Code: Helmets are REQUIRED for all riding classes. We recommend clean, neat clothes, but “show” apparel is not required. (If you have show attire, feel free to wear it.) For Western riders, we recommend boots, jeans, a tucked-in collared shirt, and your helmet. For English riders, we recommend breeches, tall boots or paddock boots/half chaps, a tucked-in collared shirt, and a helmet. This is a schooling show; you are not required to purchase expensive show clothes.
