Wont ever wear anything else but tights to ride in. Bought mine from Crazy Legs tights, and I love them. The more bright and obnoxious, the better. And they are the most comfortable thing ever. Pardon the green shirt, I had just got home from work and couldnt wait to try the tights on.

Check the ski gear on ebay for interesting colors and patterns. My daughter teaches skiing to small children and has some interesting outfits. Especially in the spring when it warms up and the heavy parkas and pants can come off.

Nope, and its intentional. The picture of Dream trotting in the river (my current avatar) was sent to EN by the photog as a cover shot, and she was told it wasn't useable. Why not? Because it depicted "excess speed" and "bad terrain" and they didn't want to portray endurance that way for fear the public would "misunderstand."

Well let me tell you, that 'excess speed' in 'bad terrain' is proudly hanging on my wall, and even non-horsey people who see it comment on it (and none have called me a horse abuser ).

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

The no pocket thing is actually very annoying....I'm working out sewing a couple of large buttons to the sides or back of my riding pants and then crocheting some sort of keeper bag to button to it. I need a place for my phone and for a couple of other things. I do not want to wear a fanny pack when riding...atleast not yet lol.

so I guess they would rather have people show up unprepared ? Ah well,
Im riding in baseball pants and the saddlebum tights, never felt like I was sliding around. Come to think of it, the times I've gone flying I was wearing jeans.

I can understand that some people end up with certain addictions in their life......but that picture that smrobs posted reminded me of an actor in a movie that said, "when I die I want to be reincarnated as a leotard." LOL

BTW, phantomhorse.....that picture is amazing...."as if you didn't know that already". It even appears that Dream is posing for the camera while in full stride.

Talking about sliding around in the saddle. Oil up your saddle then go for a ride in jeans....wooohoooo. LOL

Truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as self evident.
