Men’s western show hat??

I am trying to outfit a male western rider in our barn.  We have never had a western horse or rider before, nor do I have any personal experiene with western.

Do male riders wear felt hats or straw?

Thanks!

    Men are the same as women and wear felt indoors and straw outside in the heat.

    Thought that it always has been from Memorial day to Labor day -Straw hat.

    From Labor day to Memorial day it’s- Felt hat.

    Old time idea.

    If you can only afford one though I think go for the felt. Felt is always appropriate, straw would be inappropriate at certain times, such as indoors and I would think for a championship class, especially at night.
