    Haha. I wear boxer-briefs and boxers about 50/50 so I'll just remember to wear boxer-briefs when riding.

    The barn my son rides in has a hired hand that wears well fitting but comfortable jeans and a tshirt in the event the tasks he's assigned ruins it and a pair of steel toe boots. How he LOOKS in them is totally secondary as they are functional for what he is doing - cleaning stalls, exercising, feeding, cleaning tack, landscaping, clean up the jumps, weeding the garden, painting, fixing fence, the list goes on. When he rides for lessons he wears a pair of older breeches that aren't up to show wear and again a tshirt. Shows - whatever the classes he is in has set. Again his LOOKS are secondary (but I will say he looks pretty good) to the task. Riding is about YOU and the HORSE - not YOU and whomever may be watching you unless it is your instructor and she/he is looking FOR form not AT form. At home my son dresses similarly for what he is doing for that period in time. Safety is the objective. Nothing loose fitting and always appropriate foot wear for the task.

    I'm curious, how old is your son?

    My son is 9, the hired hand is 17. They both do roughly the same work. The hired hand for $$, lessons and ride time. My son because this is his future if he chooses. Though he also gets paid a small amt, rides whenever time permits and I have him in lessons with someone else as he is at the age where he will benefit most from someone else improving on the skills he has. It is also social as he gets to ride with both male and females that are interested in the same. He rides English for lessons and whatever saddle happens to be closest or none if he so chooses here.

    Good! We need more recreational male riders, especially male English riders.

    At least we do here.
