I fell recently and had to take a trip to urgent care. I went straight from the arena to the urgent care. Before I got out of the car to walk into the urgent care, my mother suggested I take off my helmet and gloves (I was in a lot of pain...I wasn't thinking about fashion). I got a lot of up-downs in the waiting room. Not only was I wearing breeches, tall boots, and spurs, but I was covered in dirt, so I'm sure I was a delightful sight to behold. After our trip to urgent care, my mother and I went went to the pharmacy and dinner, with me still in my riding clothes. Apparently there's no where I won't go with spurs on!!!

I'm always dressed for riding - jeans, sweatshirt, high socks and boots. I always carry a hoofpick in my back pocket and I have to try to remember to clean out the horse treats before I go to school. ;)

My instructor doesn't make me wear breeches during lessons so I always wear jeans. Personally I feel a bit weird wearing paddock boots without half chaps so I always leave them on. Just my personal preference. I'm not good enough to wear breeches, haha, but personally I really like them. They are classy.

I don't wear my riding attire out in the non-horse public. Not everyone likes the smell of horse and I guess I respect other people too much to offend. So when i am finished riding my attire comes off and the street clothes go on. Plus I am a guy and wish to avoid any negative confrontations that may arise from wearing breeches.
