When I use to win money for barrel racing, I would go out and either spend it on my horse or if I didn't see anything I want/need for my horse, go out and spend it on myself. I would buy jeans and shirts for riding.
Call me crazy, but I want to look good while riding. It's not for anyone else, just to make myslef feel and look good. I feel it boost my confidence. But then again, that's coming from a girl who lacks some self esteem.
I'm REALLY picky about jeans, the way they look, move, and fit. I can usually only find reg. jeans at one store, and that's Kohls. I have a favorite pair that I absolutely LOVE! I use these for anything, riding, etc.
I perfer when showing, to have flashier jeans. I like buying from Buckle and a local western apperal/tack store. (:
I'm super short and have short legs and a big ole booty, so jeans that fit they way I want them aren't plentiful. But, when I do find some, they look AMAZING!
