I went riding in a pair of capri pants the other day. Not recommended. Besides getting them dirty, my legs stick to the stirrup leather. Not sure how some people can stand to ride in shorts. I'd have to have a large bottle of Monkey Butt powder

LOL! Yeah, I only ride in pants...no matter how hot it is. Although, riding bareback in capris or shorts isn't so bad, LOL!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

yes! And get the inside of your leg pinched. I did it once, havent done it since and never will. The only time I've done it again was bareback where there was nothing to get pinched on :P

I found out that to keep my new riding boots clean, I can simply brush them off with one of my brushes to keep them looking nice! ;) Some leather cleaner works, too.

I ride mostly english but I will tell you what I wear for both:
For all you need to wear closed toed shoes like boots or tenis shoes work.
For english I wear speacil pants but for western I wear Jeans.
A Pair of Half or full chaps will stop you from getting a saddle rash.(you wont get a rash the first time it will take alot of ridding.
Don't forget a helment not a bike one. But some riding places will provide one if your new.
Gloves are helpful but not needed.

Anymore Qs please ask!
