I think there is a big difference between body odor from the gym and the smell of nature. Would you be against a nurse stopping at a store because she smelled of antiseptic after scrubbing all day? Nurses go from work to the stores all the time in scrubs. What is the difference? If you look closely, scrubs can look nasty.

What about the person that lives with several dogs and cats and is always covered in some foreign hair? Horse hair, cat hair, what is the difference?

Actually, as a nurse, I used to (years ago) stop at the store on my way home. These days, I frown on it. Mostly because of the resistant disease strains around us now. Might not smell, but sure can carry some lethal stuff. For example, my sis-in law got accidentally splashed with some body fluids a couple of weeks ago during a surgical procedure she was doing. Despite all of the current protection available, which she used, she has been ill for 2 weeks. Now, if she had stopped by the store....who knows the folks she may have spread that to.

Oh yeah! I have run plenty of errands both before and after the barn, and I've gone to dinner with friends post-riding. I'm too old to care what people think. And let's face it: Even on my worst day, everyone on People of Walmart has me beat. However, I will go home first in extreme situations: Got pooped on, fell off into mud, unfortunate sweat stains, bareback riding during shedding season, etc.

For those that find it gross going to eat while that dirty... I will ALWAYS stop off in the bathroom and wash my hands prior to sitting down (and arms if wearing short sleeves). If necessary, I'm not against washing my face either. I figure, I bring water to the barn all the time, and who knows what gets stuck to that straw! So my food at a restaurant is no dirtier than that, and I will never go out if I'm stinky enough to offend nearby diners.

I run errands in my riding clothes before and after riding. I doesn't make sense for me to leave the barn, pass the stores I need to go, and go home and change and turn around and go back.

I do always take my boots off and put other shoes on, usually Crocs. There's a 99% chance that my boots have poop on them, and I don't need to track that into the grocery store or Starbucks, and I don't like how it feels to drive in riding boots. Besides, boot socks, breeches, and Crocs is a super-attractive combination!

See, I'm lucky.. My horses are at my house, so no I won't go anywhere looking like a red, sweaty, stinking mess with hair plastered to my forehead and my jods stuck to my legs. I mean seriously, I'm one of those people that just can't go anywhere after a ride, without knocking out the general population with good noses. Or maybe that's just my thoughts on it since a friend of mine rode with me one day in the heat of summer and then commented that my sweat smelt like lollies... What?

The only time I keep my riding attire on is if I'm at a show, I might stop at a dairy or something on the way home to get a bottle of water, or a block of chocolate if it was a particularly bad show but I almost always empty a can on deodorant onto myself and brush my hair back before I go in. I'm far to self conscious not to, and if I can help it I'll get somebody else to go in for me.

-In saying that though I have severe agoraphobia and also social anxiety, so maybe I'm just different :P

There are not many horses in the town I live in. I go to the store or gas station in my half-chaps and I get looked at as if I have 3 heads. People just are not used to it.

In my home town, that's a different story, I get asked how my ride went and how the horses are.

Couldn't care less what people think of what I'm wearing, even if it is a cut off shirt with jeans and boots, covered in horse hair and dirt. I guess it helps that that's the norm in my town... Even going into Red Lobster (about the fanciest restraunt in my town) you don't get to many stares..
