    Yeeesss!!! I live in a big city. So people really don't understand what half chaps are, breeches honestly just look like leggings. Mine are black, so people don't even notice the leg patches. Nobody notices my half chaps except for the older chinese ladies lol. They ALWAYS notice, and stare! I often take the bus. If I work a full shift at work after riding, then I go straight to my job. My co workers think half chaps are sexy and that I should wear them with a skirt. I'm like uh no lol.

    I wear my riding clothes if I have to stop at the store after my lesson. The store is on the way home so why not. If people can wear their pajamas to the store I don't see why I can't wear my breeches :)

    I'm a hot mess after riding so I change before I leave the barn (boots muddy from chasing down horse in paddock, hair is a mess from sweaty helmet, white horse hairs all over me from grooming).

    I ride western and have been known to go places still in my boots,jeans and spurs. I live in west Texas so I am not the only one. Few rodde English here and I can say have never seen someone at the store in English attire.

    I keep everything on. It's a small town, and most people know I ride

    Girl, I wear my breeches almost everywhere except somewhere I need to dress fancy for, but usually when I'm done riding, it's the end of the night..

    But I live in Michigan, which is probably the home of peopleofwalmart.com lolz.
    If you seen some of the clothes people wear around here you'd never be self conscious about having breeches on.

    Seriously, I get funnier looks walking into my feed store in my clean running gear before a run than I do walking into a supermarket in my dirty stinking riding gear with hair plastered to my face.

    I am with the "hating to change" group, not only that but I don't actually have a lot of clothes! Clothes shopping is one of my least favorite activities so I often find myself rotating between two or three different pairs of jeans. I do try to always keep one clean pair around for "emergencies" like going to a restaurant (which I also rarely do). But I often go the grocery store, etc. In my horsey clothes and nobody ever seems to mind in the least. In fact, just yesterday my husband and I stopped in at the grocery store on the way home from picking up a load of hay, and in the lineup I noticed he had hay ALL over him, then realized I did too! It was rather funny. Today we went to the same store just after he finished cutting down a tree beside our driveway, and at the same till with the same cashier I noticed he was covered with sawdust! Talk about hicks!

    Absolutely I do, why take the time to take everything off, let them stare lol. Theyre just wishing they could play with ponies too. I had to accompany my mom to her doctors apt a while back and I had a full barn shift that day (im a barnhand as well) and I was covered, flithy boots and halfchaps, hay in the hair, the whole 9. People stared, but that's what ppl do.

    I never change after riding, I just don't have time. I can't tell you how many times riders or ex-riders will ask if I ride and tell me they would love to get back into riding!
