[RC] Hopefully not too off topic. endurance riders in other sports? - Julienne

So after the Fireworks ride Isabella seemed a little fried (and tweaked her back a little) so I'm taking the rest of the season off to give us both a mental break from conditioning all the time and to try some new things.

We are participating cow clinic at the end of this month with Art Grunig and we're going to a schooling show in October.

The cow clinic should be fun.. me and my little 1/2 arab and cushy sheepskin endurance saddle next to all those beefy QHs and 50 lb saddles! *grin*  I've been reassured that my tack is fine..  :)

But..  I have no real horse show tack at all! Any other endurance riders dabble in other disciplines?  What sort of modifications to your gear do you make to enter halter / showmanship / trail classes?  Cover for your Tipperary helmet?  Wear the light coolmax nylon breeches instead of the dark with neon pink striping?  I suppose I should take off my saddle pack and scoop.

It's a small little schooling show so I'm not concerned about dressing to the nines, but I also don't want to stick out *too* much like a sore thumb.. :)  Oh yeah, what the heck is Simple Simon Reining?
