I wear what ever I have on at the moment. That includes being bare foot. If I don't mind some broken toes no one else should mind me having broken toes either. LOL

I'm always in paddock boots at the barn, so that's what I ride in, plus halfchaps, no matter if I have a saddle or not. I have ridden bareback and barefoot a few times. Perfect way to ride on a hot summer day!

Sam and I often come straight from work to meet the farrier, and if the horses are at the far end of the paddock we vault on up in our work clothes and heels and ride up to the gate :]

Not a regular occurance though!

I generally ride bareback in whatever I happen to be wearing but it also depends on the horse and where I am riding. I used to take my paint out to the creek not only bareback but in a bathing suit because he used to LOVE playing in the creek in the summertime and he was a pushbutton, no problem sort of horse.

I just wear whatever shoes I happen to have on. I'm guilty of riding barefoot once in a blue moon. Warm horse fur is very comfy on bare feet.

Ah, yes, I have great memories of riding horses to the river in bathing suits and barefeet with my sisters when I was growing up. We'd even take the shampoo and bathe them sometimes

Yeah. Scary, I know. Toni tried to talk some sense into those idiots but they refuse. She was going to kick them out, but they signed off on a liability waver so now we are both of the opinion that they'll learn otherwise when they dismount and fall, get stepped on, etc.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Whatever I'm wearing. I have boots, but I typically ride in tennis shoes because I think they are the must comfortable thing in the world. But my spur strap had broken and have since "stolen" a friend's set and they don't fit on my tennis shoes. So I have been riding in my boots more often. =P

I have ridden in everything you can think of; tennis shoes, converse, riding boots, rubber boots, flip flops, socks, high heels, barefoot, etc. Barefoot is my favorite actually. =]

I don't do it often anymore so usually I do have my boots on. Used to ride bareback either barefoot or in tennis shoes.
