Appy do you ever ride in them? They are sort of the same material as some breeches only no patch and a boot cut. I just love them to ride in.

Never ridden in them. I'm kinda afraid to get them all dirty

If i'm not wearing my breeches, i'll wear jeans. In the summer though, I rode in like sweat pant capri things and they were comfy, and I rode in shorts too

Thanks. I'm sure I can come up with something to wear. I just don't want to be odd for wearing breeches for western. Lol. I can't find any boot cut breeches on any site Iook at. Would tack shops carry them?

Dover saddlery carries a few boot cuts. There is also a stretch jean I have been meaning to try but havent yet. They have gotten good reviews in the magazines I have seen them in. They would maybe fit in a little better in a western school situation. http://www.horsewomanspirit.com/index.html

I have Smooth Stride riding pants with a full seat. I can't remember what the cost was but they are around $100 a pair. Not sure how much you want to spend.

I ride in soft sport pants. Somehow my paint hates me riding in jeans (and I'm not big jeans fan anyway). Used to ride in sport shoes too, but that's dangerous. Got pair of western boot at Expo, and just so much more comfy than sport shoes!

Green Broke
Jeans with sweat pants overtop

Subtract the sweatpants during the summer.

I wear what ever keeps me warm for the most part.

Again, except in the summer

I ride in jeans and Justin roper cowboy boots. I like the boots because they are comfy on the ground and in the saddle.

As far as jeans are concerned, look for something that will fit over your boots (if you don't have jeans over the top of your boot, it tends to catch on the bottom of the stirrup fender). Jeans that are a little too long for you work best, because they tend to ride up when you sit in the saddle. Make sure the seam on the inside of your knees isn't too thick.

For a top, I usea t-shirt or long sleeved shirt, depending on the weather. If it's a bit chilly out, I'll use a down vest. Make sure the clothing isn't too baggy or loose so it doesn't catch on the horn or any other part of the saddle.

For headgear, I recommend a helmet. (They may already have these for use at the stable). If not, Troxel makes some inexpensive ones. Don't worry if they're english helmets, there aren't very many good western hat helmets out there, and they are quite expensive.

I wear the same thing for both western and english.

A shirt (hoodie and jacket if it's the winter and freezing), jeans, Ariat fat baby boots, and my half chaps.

I don't think you have to wear anythin fancy while ridin.. For me I just where boots and my wrangler jeans, but most of all wear a helmet. I mean especially if you just startin out, I mean everytime we ride I where a helmet.. Workin with a animal that big, you just don't know what can happen. If I where you, I would DEFINANTLY get some boots.. I mean those things, in my opinion, protect your feet when you trail ridin. I mean I couldnt tell you how many times T has got so close to a sharp branch and it scratch my lower leg and foot but sense I where boots I don't get scratched.

I was told that Fat Babys weren't for riding... do they work well for you?

I just got a pair and they are unbelieveably comfortable. I haven't used them for riding, though... I got stepped on trimming hooves yesterday and didn't hardly feel a thing (though the toe got smooshed in and I had to take the boot off to pop it back out).
