    my little rant about tack shops

    None of them sell any mens gear. It is almost impossible to find anywhere that stocks mens apparel and people look down at me when I wear jeans to a dressage competition maybe next time i'll take my western saddle and see what they say.
    Rant over

    Lol, my husband complains about the same thing. He buys most of his stuff on eBay. He bought a pair of Polo pants and is in LOVE with those for riding. Much more relaxed and comfortable, but still "formal" looking. And they even come in larger sizes (he's a 38 Long).

    I notice that too around here. You can have your tackshop order in men's apparel from Dover Saddlery and then pick it up there if you don't want to order it yourself...they have several mens' jumping and dressage outfits :) www.doversaddlery.com for a free catalog. Their catalogs are nice.

    You must not be in horse country. We are located within 15 mins of spruce meadows mind you but it's just as easy to find men's riding clothes in stores than it is for women to do the same thing. You might want to consider going online if it's that hard to find decent riding apparel. I never buy clothes onlines BUT it might be the best option for your situation.

    Greenhawk.net are the best ones IMO.

    Good Luck :)

    My husband has the same problem. His main beef is that even if you do go online any of the man's items are more expensive then the woman's. I can find several styles of breeches under $100 for me, but all the man's are at least $150 and up.

    Don't even get me started about men's tall riding boots. It is either those horrible rubber things for $40 or $250 for leather show boots.

    Tee hee....men are complaining about clothes....Sorry guys, I understand the frustration all too well, but to actually hear/see it is slightly amusing. It's comforting to know it's not just women!!! I wish you the best of luck shopping, it's a dreadful experience.

    ^lol I agree!

    My problem is the tack shops here are mostly western attire I ride english lol. I see Wrangler this Wrangler that, and if I remember correctly we don't have any mens english wear either really odd. I buy all my horse things online now because its just easier to get what I want. Good Luck!
