Gray “T” shirts with title and student’s first name are required for all Gray Shirts-SSH or SCC. Sweatshirts are not required but highly recommended. We recommend at least two shirts so one can be worn while the other is in the wash and one sweatshirt as the mornings are usually chilly out in Corbett. Students will get dirty while out at OMF but must come to OMF clean and tidy to start each day.
Each student must wear clean black, tan or blue long pants that are not too tight (you have to pick your leg up to mount a horse), do not have writing on them or rips or tears. Also, pants must have belt loops and students must wear belts. Belts are required.
OMF shirts are to be tucked in always. Students are to come to OMF clean and tidy.
Each student must wear tied-on, sturdy shoes. “Tennis” or “Running” shoes are not recommended because they do not help if a 1,000-pound horse steps on your foot…a hiking type boot is highly recommended.
Only one pair of earrings can be worn. Do not wear any other jewelry such as necklaces and bracelets; these are unsafe on a farm.
Students are to wear or have a watch each day; please do not rely on your phone…get a watch. While our programs are in session, Gray Shirt students are not allowed to have their mobile phones out.
Students with long hair must clip and tie back hair. Your hair is not allowed to flop in your face or in front of your eyes. Students will not be allowed to join us on that day if they are unable to comply with the standards written here. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding on this topic.
