What to wear to horse trials. Spectator style at Floors Castle International Horse Trials 12th – 14th May 2017.

 

A Hume are delighted to be one of the official sponsors of the 2017 Floors Castle International Horse Trials, 12-14th May. Run over the parklands fronting the magnificent home of the Duke of Roxburghe, the event is a highlight of the Scottish Social Season and a firm favourite among riders, owners and spectators.

As the date approaches, the question of what to wear is raised with increasing regularity. Floors Horse Trials is a big day out, a seen-and-be-seen extravaganza of top flyte competition, shopping, socialising, nibbling and tippling. It’s important not only to look good but to dress for comfort and the weather, so you are free to enjoy the day without any niggles.

 

Country staples; jeans, tweed, wellies, woollies and trusty Dubarry boots are the order of the day.

 

Jackets and Layers

Layers that can peeled on and off – waterproof/windproof. Keep a watching brief on the weather. You might bake. But equally you may drown. So, best be prepared. Umbrellas are not a good idea unless you want to incur the wrath of riders – nothing more guaranteed to spook a horse than a flapping, great golf umbrella.

 

Boots

Feet are of primary importance. Comfort and warmth are the key for what is essentially a day wandering about in a big field.

 

Bags

It’s a day to deploy a bag of generous proportions. Not so voluminous that you break sweat, or your shoulders lurch like a sinking ship, but certainly something that can hold all you need for the day.
