I don't want to change my clothes that many times in a day. If I was just riding, expect to see me in breeches and field boots. Horses smell nice. I have a confession to make, I have worn my field boots to CHURCH twice. Get at me, they are the fanciest, cleanest, shiniest, and best fitting pair of shoes I own (BY FAR) and also in the best shape. I wear them with dress clothes too. And 5 times a week to ride in, but I clean and condition every time. I went straight from my lesson to Cabela's a few days ago, and there were a bunch of people saying things like "nice boots" and lots of stares, but if I wanted to be all snobby, I would criticize their stupid camo. Anyway, what's the point of getting all hussy about the type of clothes someone is wearing at the store? They are just as legitimate as whatever you're wearing (unless you are wearing flip flops or toms, in which case riding shoes are by far more legitimate). As far as being "smelly" around your precious food, it's either in a package or something that you should wash anyway. Plus my smell isn't going to infect your food or anything. Ridiculous! At least my butt has fabric over it. Be happy.

I have gone to work in my riding clothes before. I forgot to grab a change of clothes before I left the house and didn't have time to stop and get them before work after I'd been at the barn riding and mucking. So, I went to work (as a cashier at Goodwill) in black denim leggings, half chaps, and my Ariat Terrains. Luckily, I live in a small mostly ranching community, so instead of thinking it was stupid or whatever, most people thought it was pretty cool.

As far as going to the store and such in riding clothes, again, I live in a ranching community, so there are people in smelly old boots and dusty/dirty jeans and button-downs at the store all the time. If you DON'T see someone dressed like that, it's a rarity.

I love the attention I get when I wear my riding clothes in public

On my lesson days I carry all my riding stuff with me to work and change there before leaving so I always get weird looks when I come out of the bathroom, not in my usual black polo/green apron combo, but in breeches and half chaps with a crop sticking out of the top of my bag cause it doesnt fit lol. And then I ride the bus home and my transfer stop is on a busy street and people are always craning their necks cause I look so very out of place. I probably wouldn't have an issue going anywhere dressed like that. Like I said, I love the attention lol.

Oh gosh im guilty of GOING TO SCHOOL in my riding clothes lol. I have lessons on Tuesday afternoons right after school so I just say screw it and wear them all day cause changing is a pain. Also sometimes after working at the ranch all day me and my barn buddies go out to eat in our riding clothes all sweaty, muddy and caked in poo... Its funny cause we always see those "fake" country girls there in their prissy little fake cowgirly boots and they always stare at us like we have some disease lol.

My flip flops are better than most peoples shat upon boots, and if Im going to a restaurant that doesn't say "taco Bell" on the front, I reserve the right as a pregnant woman to vomit all over your clean boots from the odor wafting from your smelly clothes.

Again, if you're not one of those people who goes in public straight from the gym covered in sweat and body funk, why would you do it in dirty riding clothes? I don't mean a couple stray hairs either!

PS. Just because your butt "has fabric over it" doesn't mean you're doing us any real favors!

Yeah-you obviously DO enjoy the attention if you parry your clothes to work, change there, then go home...and carry a crop in the bag? Drama much? Perhaps you need a reality series.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

lolz that's what I was getting at with the PS, I just didnt wanna SAY IT ;)

There is so much attitude crammed into one post, I just couldn't take it lying down!

And how many horse people also wear camo? Not me but sheesh....

Ets: I see nothing wrong with clean riding clothes or even buttless chaps with no pants as long as a) we can't see the goods and b) the person doesn't smell like a zoo. But then again, Im from SoCal. You know we are all liberal, tree loving hippies 'round here, right? ;)
