I am going to my first show in 10 days (I can hardly sit still
) and I was wondering if chaps are nessicary for western pleasure and western horsemanship. The show I am going to is very small, approximately 40 riders, distributed between halter, western, english, and fun classes. I don't know anybody going, so I can't ask around to see if I'll be the only one in jeans. I don't have the money for a pair right now, but my birthday is coming up in a month and then I'll have enough for a pair.....but in anyboy's opinion......will I look like an idiot without them?
