haha, I have never worn shorts to ride in. I just wear jeans/breeches and boots like I always do. For my lessons, the BO has an issue with tank tops (thinks they are 'sleazy') so its t shirts for me, but at home I wears tank tops.

I have found that less isn't necessarily better. I always wear my jeans (not much option) though I do have some faded ones for days when it is really hot. For shirts, I wear a small cotton undershirt underneath a long sleeved light colored cotton shirt (button up). This keeps me so much cooler than wearing a t-shirt or tank top, plus I don't sunburn. The only thing I can complain about is that my feet get hot but working with greenies, flip flops aren't really an option LOL.

Clothes. I ride in clothes. All year.

In the summer the only difference is the thickness of the clothes.

Still jeans, not lined, still half chaps and boots. T-shirt instead of sweat shirt, etc.

You think it's hot where you live? No it's not! For me, 95 is picnic weather! 95 is cool outside in the summer! lol. Try Arizona, 115 outside. THAT is HOT!
I wear breeches and half chaps plus a tank top. I usually don't ride until around 7, though, so it's only like 100 out then. haha

I buy exercise stretch pants for summer, those tights that we saw that was so popular last year - those. They are cotton, thin and cool, plus cheap. I can wear them out without worrying about cost.

Anyways, I wear those, a sports bra and a tank top.

I have a shirt made of wicking material that keeps me pretty cool and doesn't stick like normal t-shirts and tank tops. But it's white and I always make such a mess of it I wash it everytime after I wear it so I usually end up wearing a tank top and putting on lots of sunscreen of course. I wear my thinner breeches and half chaps, I don't like riding in shorts.

Short-sleeved shirts.
I would never wear shorts, though my breeches normally wick-away moisture and keep me cool.
That's like...90's ish, but 90's isn't too hot. If it's like..in the 100's I probably wouldn't ride for horse's sake.

I'm along the coast in TX so even if it's only 95 out it feels like 105 because of the humidity. But I allways ride in jeans and a t-shirt and boots. oh and of course a sports bra.

^ Agreed here.

Less exposes more skin to harmful UV rays, which makes you sweat more, dehydrating you and making you feel icky. Sometimes it's better to wear more, drink lots of water, and get shaded. Put a hat over your helmet or something, and buy wicking material. Tight tight t-shirts will soak up sweat and then above it wear a loose long-sleeved shirt. It'll act like an AC ^^
