Do boys need to wear a stock tie or a tie for dressage tests?
it’s about level as opposed to gender. If you’re doing eventing dressage, you only need a stock tie if you’re doing above novice as jackets are optional and you can’t really wear a stock tie without a jacket. I could be wrong so I recommend checking with a coach or anyone who would know. I don’t know the rules for non-eventing dressage though.
