    Have done, and no problems. However I have only ever ridden with the ones professionally done, and they stay on for about a month before you have to get them filled in again as they grow out. I ride mounted games which is pretty rough on nails and I only broke one nail in about 3 years, and it wasn't painful, just snapped the corner off.

    Self done plastic ones? NO WAY. Lol.

    I had them fone for prom and went riding a few days later.
    I was riding my friend's greenie and she bucked from a fly(i think) and right then I was adjusting my pants(the leg was bunched up) and I was leaning over.

    So I fell forward and trying to catch myslef with my hand, the nail got pushed against the pummel. It hurt SOOOO bad. It popped of and was bleeding like crazy.

    Never again.

    I ride on the AQHA and the ApHC circuits and gloves are "out" so most of us, even the kids have acrylic or "fake" nails. I ride with them, I trian with them, I do 10 hours of barn work a day with them. They break sometimes but for the most part I have no problems with them. I guess you just get used to them after awhile.

    First I love your nails! Haha they're really pretty. And I ride with fake nails almost all the time and they rarely ever break.

    I get gel nails and I ride with them all the time. I do mounted games like Wild Spot and I've never had one break on me while riding. Mine are growing out pretty long actually right now. All the pictures I posted with Melody playing Games in the picture thread, I have nails on. Lol, it's just a matter of getting used to them I think.

    The plastic ones just pop off whenever I do anything, so I don't ride with those because they simply don't stay on. XD

    lol the ones in the picture are not mine, they were the only picture I could find. The one's I have on right now are a purple pearl color with gold tips and along the top of the gold where the preal and gold meet is a line of gold glitter and nothet glitter line going in the other direction and opposite to those are two goldeny yellow stripes. I jumped in them yesterday and I'm in shock that they staied on hehe.

    My trainer always has acrylic French tips. I don't know how she does it. She says it's because they're harder than natural nails, but it still seems like they'd get in the way.

    I can't even ride with natural nails half the time. I broke a nail almost halfway down last winter when Victor spooked and his neck hit my fingers. It was all bloody and I was like, "Can someone get me a Band-Aid? I don't want to stain Victor's coat." It hurt like hell, though.

    I rode in them a few times. I usually rode in gloves to keep them clean and to help not to break them off. %-)

    Haha I don't wear those, but I know I couldn't do it. LOL, I'd be afraid of them getting all wrecked! Even with gloves on, my nails can get a bit dirty.
