For the barn I wear women's Carhartt bibs. In winter I just wear sweats and an insulated hoodie underneath. Also Sorell boots are awesome, too. They make women's boots that function like they should. If I'm riding after work I just wear wranglers under the bibs. I am so happy that Carhartt makes women's bibs! They fit me perfectly! The men's used to fit all wonky...

I'm not the only one that says bibs! Is started saying overalls cause ppl didn't know what bibs were over here.

And I thought I'm going insane!
But it's not just the work clothes.

Last time i've been to the horse shelter, one of the trainers (a guy) left his sweater on the bench. I grabbed it as it was slipping down and had the weird feeling that it is...thicker, better than my own sweater which stupidly enough was same brand same type, just female version.

Field N' Forest is amazing. I think its a little better than Carhartt and its cheaper. I got myself a winter barn jacket last year in women's and its the same quality as men's...but a bit more flattering. I actaully wear it everywhere, even though it smells like horse and hay and manure and all that good stuff. I'm not sure if they make other clothing though.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

You know what you should take a look at, is cargo pants for people like what is worn for the police and EMS force. Their clothes are meant to protect you against all sorts of fluids and are build to last against the wear and tear of day to day work.
