Most of you are understanding where I'm coming from for the most part, what a relief.

But again, when I talk about dressing blinged out I know we like to dress up cute and decked out sometimes too but just because that's what we do, not to try and "show off" that were cowgirls or impress people by how cowgirl we are.

So no I haven seen a "California" cowgirl but like I said its not to much seeing a "cowgirl" that defines one, its whether or not the lifestyle goes with her

I'm an event rider. I will never win a belt buckle. But if I am dressing up to go out and want to put one on I will. Does this make me a wannabe? I just like the looks of a nice belt buckle. Just like I love me a nice pair of jeans and cowboy boots.

Heck I am going to be wearing cowboy boots with my wedding dress.

I am such a wannabe

I even said I havent won a belt buckle and probably never will, yeah they are nice on the people that earn them and I get jealous sure lol but that doesnt mean I go buy my own and fake it through is what im saying. I have nice boots too and I have my ragged boots but for example I seen a couple girls closets who they have like 10 pairs of 500 dollar cowgirl boots in perfect condition, you can tell theyve (the boots) have never seen a day of country side in their life. That's all.

I know I want to wear boots at my wedding someday too, I actually want to go mudding like right after the ceremony or for part of the reception or something. That would be so awesome lol

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
there is a girl in my dorm room who has multiple pairs of boots I see her wear that remind me of english riding boots, that as far as my mind went with it was that they reminded me of riding boots, and later I found out she actually does ride english haha, obviously those werent her riding boots but I was wanting to ask her if she rode by any chance and apparently she does, so that was interesting.

On a side note, I guess it could pan out, for example if she had on cowgirl boots and like western "gear" or what not and I didnt know this person I could ask hey I saw your boots, do you ride or anything? And the person could either say yeah I do or I live in the country or bla bla or they could say, oh no I just like the style or just like boots or whatever. Which that would be totally fine by me, its not like I see a girl in boots or a cute blingy belt and think "that girl is so annoying she probably isnt country bla bla" but I would get a different thought towards a person if I said oh hey I like your belt buckle, what event do you ride? And they say oh I don't ride or just like dressing like a cowgirl... or whatever the answer I might feel a little affended or maybe dissapointed since that's the impression they are giving people by trying to be something they arent... its one thing if that's just what you like to wear or that's the style you like, its another thing though when someone tries to play along like they talk the talk as well

Ya know, since when it is anybody's business what anyone else wears? If you know you are country and decide not to dress like a beauty queen, that's your business. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if someone was posting on a forum talking crap about your lifestyle and how you dress. I personally don't mind these "fake" girls in their outfits. I think the outfits are cute sometimes. I would never wear them, but that doesn't give me a right to trash talk them.

I am not in the country anymore. I am no longer around my horse. I live in North Chicago. But you know what? I still wear my cowboy boots and Wranglers. I still have my bonafide southern accent. Am I a fake for wearing clothes like that now that I am in the city even though I spent 14 good, long years of my life on the back of a horse in the boondocks of Tennessee? I think not. Then again, I've also signed away my life to wear digis and dress blues for the next four years.

I think some of us should learn to mind our own business.

Now im just getting ticked off.DO NOT COMMENT ON MY POST IF YOU ARENT READING WHATS GOING ON.


This is the last time im going to say that its not what a person wears that makes them country or not, its the motive BEHIND it. You like to dress cute and country, so be it so do alot of people including country girls and not country girls.

BUT, when you wear this stuff just to pretend your country or use your little props to act like your country is where I draw the line.

I swear if someone wants to post on this again without reading whats being said, then keep your two cents and ill delete the whole post because apparently you don't give a rat enough to read the whole conversations.

Its one thing to make an opinion and its another to make an opinion when you don't even know whats going on or whats being said.

I'm less concerned about the attire of others because I love boots and they are ridiculously comfy, so I'd probably wear them even if I didn't have my horses.

Just small things bug me, for example: my coworker at my barn's fiancee. The guy's just a very all-around guy. Very, very handy to have around for most mechanical repairs on vehicles or random barn maintenance projects. He doesn't ride much because he doesn't have his own horse, but he knows how to ride them and comes with for trail rides. His fiancee? Rode a few times at her cousin's house when she was a kid and has gone on a couple walking-only trail rides with us. Both of them also wear a ton of RealTree clothing, okay, whatever.

One day, he drives her car to the barn and I looked at the back and ask when he became a cowgirl. His fiancee had put up a big pink sticker on the back window saying, "You're driving behind a COWGIRL!" Um. Okay then.

I also don't recall saying where you live has anything to do with being or not being country. I've lived in the city before too, but that has nothing to do with how I was born and raised now does it.... so why would I say oh, you live in the city now?? Sorry you are no longer country. Oh, you don't have horses anymore?? Sorry you can't be country anymore, you don't count... like seriously??


If you are one of these girls posting saying oh boy I like to wear my cowgirl boots but I don't live in the country anymore so are you calling me a poser??? You know darn straight that's not what im saying so stop trying to twist my words into calling any person who owns a pair of boots a poser...

Youve got to be kidding me.

you get what im saying then hun, I know I said things about attire but I more or less was meaning the reasons they wear certain attire when they wouldnt normally wear any of it any other time, or whatever. But you get my drift, its the little things a person does like you mention that are the things that bother me

This is an open discussion board.....besides, I felt the same about what you posted by judging others about what they wear.

Like I said, I don't get why you care so much about what other people wear.

But hey, don't mind me. I'm going to get back to my duty of defending your freedom today. Hah.
