Like Ethan, I'm horsey but you never tell. I blast Slipknot (Ah, Corey Taylor...Delicious!), ride and wear skater shoes, own two Chihauhaus and a pittbull (and Arabians! ) and have an affection for fast sports cars ( yeah,I also own a Dodge!!)

I'm just me and to heck with anyone who don't like it!
Love it! Now that's a country girl attitude!

I ride horses and have earned a few buckles from regional competitions over the years.

Heck! I've ridden my horses around in my bikini (not the best idea I've had). My next door neighbor sometimes does her horse work in a sports bra and shorts. Out here in Southern California, it gets hot and we dress according to the weather.
On the other hand, if I feel like wearing jeans and a button up plaid shirt(one I would wear while riding gymkhana) to school, I will. And guess what? I might not even ride my horse that day! Crazy, right?
And another thing, I ride quads probably once a year, but if I was offered the chance to ride one right now, I'd go for it without asking for instructions. It isn't difficult.
Last thing, I have no clue what to do with a car. I know that when my 22 year old Honda Accord starts shaking I need to pop the hood and push a plug looking thing back into the engine. That's about it.
But that doesn't make me any more or less of a country girl than you. We're just different. No need to be judgemental.
no you shouldnt be offended by this, in my opinion, that's how alot of us are I just dislike when people who don't acutally life the same lifestyle try really hard to act like they do or show that they do.. idk im already worn out about being worked up on this topic, im not saying a country girl has to look or act country im just saying in alot of cases its the opposite, that more realistic country girls fly under the radar in a sense, your pretty much right on with what im saying I guess, its hard to explain kinda but yeah it shouldnt be offensive to you

Just a thought...maybe some of those girls dolled up with their belt buckles did earn them and want to wear them for a night out on the town or whatever.
Maybe I don't count as a "country" girl. I moved to a farm at 12 years old but have been involved in horses and working on my aunt's farm for a long time previous to that (oh, and I ride english)... I grunge up real good if I want to. Stick on the rubber boots, covered in mud and horse snot, hay everywhere, or throwing the hay mid summer and all sweaty and gross. When I go out I doll up; full fledged make-up, hair done (and an almost $200 style and color job by a professional stylist, might I add), fancy jeans and my bling belt. That doesn't make me any less hard working than someone who chooses to not look the way I like to. I don't generally like to flaunt that, while on the farm, I find myself pretty unattractive at times . I do, however, get your point. I also see where you're coming from with those pictures and I think they do look a bit, well, silly hanging over a Mustang like that.

I don't know. I guess I would say don't judge a book by it's cover (just to be cliche).

I have a pair of sperrys... I do hope no one is offended. I've never stepped in a boat in my life. Sometimes, that's all it is. Someone thinks something looks cool and they wear it. Like me and my sperrys. Cowboy boots are nice looking. Some girls wanna wear them and they've never stepped foot on a ranch. I don't get my panties in a bunch over someone's fashion choice.

(It's when they start trying to act the part were I get a little )

Yeah its totally fine people get dressed up or like look good being any type of a person country or not. Im not trying to say you have to be "this, this, this" to BE country... but you said you get my point, so I wont keep trying to explain lol but as far as the belt buckles part, I was more so pointing out how it bothers me that people who didnt earn one, can just go buy one and wear it just like the people who had to work really hard.. its almost degrading or like makes the ones who actually really do earn them not have so much like pride in theirs maybe since everyone just wants to go buy one bla bla or something

OP...I get what you're saying, and I agree for the most part. I get aggravated by people dressed as cowboys/girls yet they have the rolled up hats and boots that have never seen dirt.

Your statement about the girls posing with guns, I feel the same. I don't know why, but it irks me so bad to see half dressed women posing sexy with a gun. I'm a hunter, I belong to a gun club, and I target shoot a lot just for the hell of it. There is no one walking around looking like that, acting sexy and all that. It's not something I can really put in words, but it bothers me. On the other hand, sex sells, so the advertisers use sexy models to lure in the guys. Girls see the sexy models and think that's what the guys want so they dress and pose accordingly.

I will say this one thing that was funny at the time. My husband and I went to Electric Cowboy with a friend of mine and her hubby. Me and mine, dressed nice but normal...polo for him with tennis shoes...nice top, jeans, and heels for me. My friend and hers...urban cowboy'd it up. We're there hanging out and this guy comes over and starts talking to my friend and her guy about horses, did they know anyone who broke horses because they had a young one and blah, blah, blah. These two know nothing about livestock of any kind, not horse people at all. Yet, here sit hubby and I giggling because we do and they had to direct the questions to us.

Like this, that girl on the 4wheeler, yeah she's adorable and all but we don't actually dress like that when we ride 4wheelers or whatever. And if we did, im sure our hair wouldnt be flawless at the least. Obviously she just is sitting on it trying to look like a cute country girl. The girl in the bikini, maybe she's country, maybe she's not but when I look at it, to me it looks like she just found a cowgirl hat and wanted to look like a sexy cowgirl in a bikini or something... and the last picture of the girls with the car, that was the picture that initially set me off.

LOL!!! All I got to say is, the one in the cowboy hat? If she wants to look all sexy and bad in her bikini and cowboy hat? She needs to clean up her pig sty.

Well, I have to agree, sometimes people who want to pose like who they are not - are funny. I used to work at a barn which offered string rides and sometimes a bunch of people would turn up in skinny jeans, cowboy hats, bling belts and street fashion cowboy boots - the ones that are not meant for riding, from white lace and whatnot. The men would act all manly and insist on mounting a horse from ground, not managing to do so and then sitting up there in a hunched position, visibly afraid from the walk, yet boasting about how they used to gallop somewhere, and the ladies would ooh and aah over the horses, interpret their body language in amusing ways and then scream whenever a horse pulled its' head down to grab a mouthful of grass. If it ever came to them commenting in a know-it-all manner about the tack (for example, how leather girths are to be used for jumping ONLY) - it was a good day.

I also "loved" how riding apparel came into street fashion recently, so every other girl would wander around in leggings that were made to look like English full-seet breeches and in "riding" boots. My boss once came to work looking like that and I mentioned that her boots look almost like nice riding boots - and she got offended, because apparently she wanted to do nothing with horses and thought that it made her look less posh! O_O
