Smile Ride in a skirt??

Does anyone ever ride in a skirt? I love they way they look laying over the horse, and I have some long gypsy skirts I always want to ride in. Show some pics if you do!!!

I've never ridden in a skirt, I've always been afraid the wind would catch it and blow it up.
I don't really wan't people seeing where the suns not supposed to shine lol

But if you try it, let me know how it goes for you. If you have a good experience with it maybe you'll give me enough courage to try it.

Check out Cowboy Mounted Shooting. Many of the women dress in late 1800s dresses/skirts.

I have always thought that riding in a skirt wasnt practical. In my opinion its something that you only see in movies.

They probably wore shorts underneath or some kind of large underwear that even if it did fly up whats there too see anyways lol. Ya I'd forsure where shorts or if it was a really long skirt then leggings underneath would work too haha.

This summer I worked in a horse theatre in Chicago and for our Gypsy act we wore gypsy skirts they were hilarious looking! We had to cut a slit in the front obviously so we could get on...I'd always get knotted up if we had a quick mount!!

Me and my Gypsy friends:

(i was getting him to look at the camera for my Irish tourist friends haha thats why I look like I'm pulling!!!)

That's so cool, acey! It looks pretty fun, but I wouldn't personally try it. I like my jeans or breeches!

Ride more, worry less.

Slightly off topic, but I'd love to have a go at side-saddle (with the associated habit, of course). Kira's sire used to do 'concors d'elegance' classes and I think it looks so elegant.
