what do you wear when it's hot

Not to rub it in anyone's face who is still dealing with snow...but here in florida it's been up in the low 80's during the day so I'm starting to have to think about what to wear to ride in when it's hot. Currently I ride in 'riding tights' and a tank top when it's hot. My instructor/barn owner is very 'traditional' in that she always wears tan breeches and usually some sort of professional looking shirt. I asked her today, since it was 80 and she was wearing a long sleeve shirt, if the shirt helped keep her cool. She said not really but at least it keeps the sun of you. It was one of those shirts they make for, like, fishermen and maybe golfers...it has vents and such in it and it's also supposed to be UVA resistant and all that. I've been thinking about getting one of those. I don't think long sleeve, but maybe in short sleeve. So, I was just wondering if anyone found anything that was comfortable to wear in warm weather, 'professional looking' and maybe helps keep you cool?
This is what my instructor was wearing today except the long sleeve version...this is the one I'm thinking about getting for myself

I don't wear anything like that in the summer, I just wear a tank top or tshirt :) But I know that Columbia is a good brand and their shirts are nice to have in the summer, I have a lotta friends that wear them.

And you're not the only one with warm days, I'm in SE GA! :)

I know I probably shouldn't care it's just that my instructor/barn owner probably doesn't care much for me wearing a tank top. I take lessons with another woman who commented on how it was 'tacky' that she wore a tank top but it's the coolest thing she's found to wear. So I'm not the only one wearing a tank top, and the woman I rode with today was also wearing a tank top...but more often I see polo type shirts on the riders. I just can't stand to be too hot and I will get sick really easy and over-heat so I can't see wearing some heavy cotton polo shirt just because it 'looks' better

Have you tried just a polo? In summer it looks professional, gets you out of wearing long-sleeves, and many of them are very light-weight and comfortable in the heat. In summer, I just ride in breeches (or shorts....shame on me) and a tank top as well, or a polo if it's anything semi-formal, like a lesson.

Kerrits Polo's.

They have panels under the arms that are mesh basically and the rest is a very thin wicking material.

Dover Saddlery | KerritsŪ Stretch Polo Shirt .

The key is to hunt around all the bargain tack shops to find "Last Year's Colors". For CHEAP! I have several that I just bought for around $15 each. Too bad we have over 6" of snow right now!

I see those in all the sale catalogs I get and was wondering if they really are good material. Too bad we have no equine consignment shops around here

They're awesome!

Ebay is a good place to find them inexpensively.

Under armour has hot-weather gear as well as cool-weather gear...look into some tshirts or something by them! I always wear tank tops, but I have an under armour tank top that works really well for hot weather.
