No one does “matchy-matchy” quite like an eventer. It all starts with the fierce helmet cover and vest. Once those are set, you can move on to the rest of your attire. The perfect shirt has to obviously work well with your helmet cover and vest, but also your extra sticky and super lucky cross-country breeches. Thankfully, boots and gloves are usually simple enough.
Then it’s on to your horse. I can’t begin to tell you how many hours I’ve spent debating various saddle pads and bonnets. Don’t even get me started on the numerous boot tape options I’ve collected and tested. Boyd though may have won the day when it comes to matchy-matchy. I don’t think anyone can top having the youngest member of your crew rock the same shirt as you on cross country day.
