I ride in jeans, a t-shirt(depending on the weather), and western boots. You can get either laceup paddock style boots or pull on western boots. Do not ride in tennis shoes. Boots are designed so they do not allow your foot to slip thru the stirrup. Be SAFE!
You can ride in jeans or riding pants.. Jeans I suggest Wrangler 13MWZ bluejeans for riding. .They are very comfortable. I'd advise them if you use pull on western boots so they will cover the boot. You can even go to Walmart and get some cheap stretch jeans that work well for riding.
Riding pants(english style) can easily be used with half chaps and paddock style lace up boots. Eng or western, no matter. Ariat and Twisted X are good comfortable boots. I wear them all the time.
Hope you have a great time.
