Come hunting with us!

What to wear

The Lockyer family (L-R) Meg, Fran and Min (Master) immaculately turned out as usual

Whilst there is a formal hunting attire that regular followers/subscribers should wear, there are a variety of alternatives which are perfectly acceptable. 

 

We are proud of our turnout - the smarter the better.  It is a compliment to farmers and landowners that those representing the Wilton are well turned out.

 

Starting from the top, any form of approved riding safety hat is acceptable, but we would prefer the cover to be black or of a sober colour and without tassles or pom poms!

 

A hunting shirt and stock or shirt and tie are acceptable under any safe coat/jacket, but once again brightly coloured coats should be avoided. 

 

Fawn breeches are preferred, but white breeches/jodhpurs are acceptable if they are all you have.

 

Long boots or jodhpur boots are safest. Spurs are completely optional.

 

Back protectors are recommended for novice children. 

 

In very wet weather a dark coloured waterproof coat is acceptable.

 

Should my horse be plaited?

There is no requirement for horses to be plaited with the Wilton although it is correct form to plait for ‘lawn meets’. It is incorrect for horses to be plaited before the Opening Meet.

Let us know you are coming out

Remember - if you are a visitor, newcomer or non-subscriber you must contact the Hon Sec, Helen Randall, to let her know you are coming out so that we know to expect you.
