    Just an observation, it looks like your saddle pad is too far forward.

    I personly believe that section of scripture is mis-understood... King James Version (KJV)

    5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

    I believe that should be taken at face value. Women shouldnt dress like men, and men shouldnt dress like women. If you were to go all the way back to "biblical" times men wore a "robe like garment" that was shorter than the womens. So in essence men today should still be wearing a robe as well.

    Im in no way criticizing your view on the scripture. :)

    She looks like a calm, kind mare and has a pleasing expression. Love her colour too.

    On the down side, her pasterns are a bit long. Her worst fault however, is that she is incredibly straight in the rear. Definitely a huge no-no for breeding. I would hate to see that passed on, although I suspect one or both parents had the same problem.

    What does religion have to do with what you ride your horse in? I do not think your horse cares. Ride in what you feel comfortable in.

    What makes you think she isn't? She already said she liked riding in them.

    You are right. My horse doesn't care squat what I wear-lol

    I do. I think it's modest for me to dress that way. =)

    No offence taken :)

    Here is a little bit of why I wear what I do:

    "Modest" means not extreme or bold, and not morally loose. Those can apply to pants, yes; but when I have on a pair of pants, I don't feel that my body is covered. Pants are form-fitting, thus exposing my body. That's just how I feel. The illustration that Cathy Corle uses is two pictures of the same woman. The first one has her in a nice dress. She asked a group of ladies what they noticed about this woman, and they answered her face. Then she showed them the picture of the same woman in a pair of jeans and asked what they noticed. They said their eyes were immediately drawn to the crotch area! That drove home to me that clothes can emphasize the body or the face; I'd rather have folks, especially men, notice my face and not my body. Again, this is my feeling.

    The other thing that convinced me was the doctrine of separation from the world. The fashion of the world is to wear pants (patterned after men's clothing). This wasn't the case until about 100 years ago, when actresses began wearing pant suits that resembled men's suits. Before that, women almost universally wore dresses (I remember my Granny saying that she wore her brother's overalls to pick cotton to keep her legs from getting all scratched up). So the fashion of the world became women wearing pants. I felt that, to be separate from the world, I needed to dress differently than the world. I also needed to be feminine and distinctively female; there should be a noticeable difference between my clothes and a man's clothes. The difference in our culture is that women wear dresses and men wear pants, so I believe it's right for me to wear dresses.

    Several years ago, my pastor gave some principles for Christian dress. They're very helpful, and they can be applied to male or female, pants or dresses.

    1. Modesty - does this clothing cover me adequately? I Tim. 2:9


    2. Not worldly - does this clothing reflect the current trends of Hollywood and TV? I John 2:15


    3. Difference - does this clothing easily show there's a difference between me and the opposite gender? Deut. 22:5


    4. Inoffensive - does this clothing offend a brother or sister in Christ? As a woman, will this cause my brother to stumble or think lustfully about me? Rom 14:7-8,12-13 I Cor. 10:23; 8:13


    5. Glorifies God - does this clothing glorify God, or does it call attention to me and glorify me? I Cor. 10:31

    As for this being a matter between a wife, husband, and God:

    A saved man will encourage his wife to do what God is laying on her heart. Several ladies have mentioned how their husbands didn't see the need for dresses only, but supported them in wearing them because the ladies felt that is what God wanted them to do. With an unsaved husband, the dress issue can be a witness to her husband in one of two ways: if he doesn't mind her wearing dresses only, it can be a witness of her changed life; if he doesn't want her to wear dresses only, her submission to him in this area will be a witness to him (especially if she makes sure to wear what pleases him when they are at home, even if she wears dresses all the rest of the time).

    This issue is just like any other that families have to make a decision about. If your heart is open to do whatever God wants you to, and you study scriptures related to it and come to a different conclusion than others, you've done what you need to to follow God's leading. We have freedom in Christ to follow Him as He leads us to. I don't know why some people develop certain convictions and others don't. How people dress is not a salvation issue; it's a separation issue. It's not my job to win them over to my way of thinking on separation - it's the Holy Spirit's job to teach them how God wants them to live. If they ask why I believe something, I'll tell them; otherwise, I stay quiet"

    Note: these words are not mine,but they help me explain my point :)

    Im in no way criticizing your view on the scriptures either, I just wanted to answer your question as honestly as I could. If you have questions,just ask ;)

    P.s. For those of you who clicked on this post for a horse debate and found a clothing debate, sorry :} But you gotta admit, it's fun ;) lol

    As I Christian I'll say that there are pants and there are pants. If you are worried about form-fitting, then try relaxed jeans. They don't hug your body any more than your culottes would. Wear a baggy t-shirt with them if you don't want anything form fitting.

    Remember, religion is man-made. Some of the rules made up by churches are quite frankly ridiculous. I too was raised Baptist and when I was younger, I couldn't go to the movies. Not even to see something like Bambi. The Baptist church deemed that movies were wrong no matter what.

    These days, I follow the New Testament, what Christ tells me to do/how to act. Of course, I'm not a youngster living at home with my parents either.

    Honestly, you don't think showing your legs would make men "lust" after you more so than wearing loose jeans?

    I'm not being critical, but just throwing ideas out there for you. While it's important to follow your heart and your Savior, remember what I said about "religion".

    I am a Christian, not a Baptist, Free Methodist, Presbyterian or any other man made religion.

    PS, I love your mare's color. Very pretty.
