Northern Mama-think about this. I would a LOT rather see a farmer or ditch digger in their work clothes in the store than I would a health care worker. THEY are the ones who really should change. They are the ones who are at highest risk to be carrying resistant strains of heaven knows what. However, any person on the street may be carrying MRSA. Many are. You are probably much better off in GH's grocery store than you are walking the streets of most major cities.

I would also bet that GH could probably do a lot better without your business than you would without the food she provides. JMHO.

I will always bring a change of clothes, including shoes, with me to the barn if I know I need to run errands afterwards. I make sure to scrub my hands and arms before hand too. I understand that people have very busy schedules and no longer take the time to clean themselves up before hand, but I think its very disrespectful to others not to do so. It does not take long to at least wash your hands and arms before going to a store. And yes, I agree that people who work in health care are much worse then someone who works on a farm. YUCK!

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I tend to draw the line at tights. I do wear them on occassion depending on what level of training I am doing. I'll change in the trailer before leaving.
Other than that I usually ride in baseball pants, I'll leave them on.

I don't ever change out my riding clothes if I am going out after (eg. To the shops for stuff). I wear my gear proudly - the supermakets must be used to me by now, as I have only once seen another rider in there.

I like wearing my gear, its who I am - and if people want to stop and chat horse, hey by all means my ears are open.

I don't mind wearing my barn/riding attire in public. It doesn't phase me, and it probably should LOL
