Well, really, I'll just wear boots, easy to ride in then sneakers (for me) and some joddies and a top! Then I'm right to go!

I ride western/trail. I prefer yoga pants or boot cut breeches. I hate wearing jeans to ride on a long trail ride. I also prefer Ariat endurance shoes instead of boots. If I'm going someplace where there are snakes I wear tall cowboy boots and if I know I'll be hacking through areas without cut trails I wear my chinks.
Its dangerous to wear shoes that have too much tread and no heel. You want the sides of the sole to be smooth so it doesn't catch on the stirrup when you pull your foot out. And the heel so your foot won't slide through.
Ariat endurance:


Edit: if you prefer jeans, try Wranglers I like the Aura by Wrangler, they are more comfy for riding then some.

Definitly DO NOT wear running shoes, it makes it way to easy for your feet to slip through the stirrups. If you don't want to invest in expensive boots yet, get a pair of hiking boots, that's what I used to wear. And when you get jeans, try to get some that don't have a huge seam down the inside of your leg, because it can really rub if you arent riding properly (or a beginner, and just figuring everthing out ).
I ride in either jeans or breeches, and have paddock boots/ half chaps for the summer, and tall winter boots.

Could not agree more! Definitely a boot with a heel! It's different for English and Western. I don't let my english students wear cowboy boots, I don't know about the other way around. I'd call your trainer before you bought anything and see what she says. She may have something specific in mind or be able to recommend a good tack shop that has knowledgable staff who can help.

I wear riding boots of course, with a small heel.
I also wear jeans. & of course since it's chilly, a long-sleeved shirt & a jacket, that I make sure is ONLY for riding so it can get dirty lol.

Yes I wear breeches because I like the sticky butt and they are very comfortable. I do wear the boot cut though, not the tight around the ankle kind, the wouldn't go over my cowboy boots
I found yoga pants are just as comfortable and cheaper but don't have the sticky butt :(
Like these except those are pretty fancy and cost way more then I could spend.

Do you find the sticky bum helps?
Those seam like a good option, cause I don't have any jeans that's are... ridable? Lol
Where do you get your yoga pants from?
All the ones I find are like pajamas. lol

If I'm riding on a roughout seat the sticky isn't really necessary but on a smooth seat I think it really helps keep you stuck if your horse spooks sideways.
