hunt clothes etiquette

I finally found a hunt coat that I absolutely fell in love with. So heres my next question. Is it okay not to wear a stock pin? I’m really not a big fan of them. Besides losing them I cant ever keep one straight. I dont ride equitation, so its not too big of an issue. I was wondering if I could get away with just a nice pin on my jacket instead? I also have on collar that has rhinestones around the whole thing, and I was debating being creative and (tastefully) adding them to my other shirt collars also. Any other ideas out there? Also, where can you get the collars embroidered with your initials?

    Stock pins seem to be common at Morgan shows, but at hunter shows they’re a relic of decades past. You definitely don’t have to have one. The monogrammed collars are popular on both circuits.

    I know a lot of the tack shops, like Dover, will put a monogram on collars, but you’d probably have to buy the shirt from them.

    I’m not a big fan of stock pins either… I’m likely to pin myself in the neck. I think monogram’s are the way to go!

    Nice pin on your jacket is fine, we have been riding with that for years now. And we have had the collars done by a lady at New England every year and I think at Mass Morgan, really nice job.

    You may be speaking of Signet Monogram. She does excellent work.
