Abstract or Summary
  • Factors associated with the clothing selection practices of Oregon horse show exhibitors were studied by means of a mailed questionnaire. Purposes of the study were to determine the extent to which exhibitors believe that apparel enters into a judge's evaluation of competitors, to determine the extent to which trainers provide information to their customers concerning riding apparel selection and the frequency with which this counsel is followed, to determine the extent of expressed feelings of difficulty in locating desired items of riding apparel, to determine the importance of selected appearance factors in choosing riding apparel items, to describe Oregon horse show exhibitors in terms of social position, and to explore the relationships existing among beliefs about the relationship of clothing to achievement, the use of services of a professional trainer, feelings of difficulty in locating desired items of riding apparel, the amount and kind of competition entered, ratings of appearance properties of clothing, and social position. Typical Oregon exhibitor families were lower middle class people who exhibited from one to three horses at about 11 shows yearly, which were usually one or two days long. In the past they had been customers of a professional trainer but were not at present. They received advice from the professional about clothing, especially concerning rules governing what is to be worn and styles and colors to select and frequently followed it. They felt clothing was important to judges when evaluating classes. The respondents also experienced some difficulty in finding what they wanted to buy in Oregon stores, especially criticizing lack of choice and correct sizes. They also felt that factors of outward appearance were somewhat more important in selecting clothes than characteristics less readily observable. There was a statistically significant relationship between ratings of appearance properties of clothing and amount of kind of competition entered and between the use of the services of a professional trainer and amount and kind of competition entered. There was a tendency toward significance between expressions of feelings of difficulty and ratings of appearance properties of clothing.
