What are the basics to bring with you at an eventing show?
Also, for dressage you must have white gloves. For XC you should bring a clock with stopwach (a big one, you must see the numbers correctly)
For cross country, you can wear any shirt/breeches/saddle pad, but you must have a safety vest and medical band. Safety vests are required; you can't even SCHOOL cross country without it, although I'm sure you know that. Medical bands are used to note your medical information in case you fall off on course. I have found both of these things on SmartPak. For stadium, you will need tan breeches and a white show shirt, plus your medical band and a white (non fitted, again) saddle pad. Enjoy and good luck! :)
For dressage, the rider will need white breeches, a show coat, and tall boots. You also need a stock tie and pin (equestrian related; my pin is a golden horse head). If you and your horse use a crop, you'll probably want to use a dressage whip for dressage to be on the safe side, just because of dressage regulations. You will also need a white (not fitted) saddle pad :)
