With that being said, I think what you are referring to little preppy girls in cowgirl attire that scream when they break a nail and do not know or appreciate the value of hard work. Oh and ewwwwww horse poop!!!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so they say.

You know how some people feel they were born in the wrong body? They are a girl on the outside, but they know they are really a boy? Well some of us were born in cities, to poor bemused parents who couldn't understand that to me wearing jeans under a full length bridesmaid dress was quite reasonable, who had a cowboy outfit, rode bareback, trailed mud, straw and muck all over their nice city house.

I escaped as soon as I could, but it took me to my late 40's to find where I was meant to be, where I can wear jeans and cowboy boots, where no one bats an eye f I have fencing pliers in my belt while I'm shopping.

Don't judge, try and understand, some are wanna be's some of us are has to be's

Owning a horse, out in the country, doesn't in any way shape or form make you a FARMER! Have you actually ever grown anything other than weeds or a tiny garden? Bred, raised and then slaughtered livestock? What exactly qualifies YOU to be a farmer?

Stay a city person? Rather hypocritical considering YOU were raised in the city.... since going from city person to farmer is not allowable for them, how come it was ok for YOU?

Here's the annoying thing about cowgirl wannabe peeps...they look a whole lot better all duded up in boots and hats and belt buckles than I do!It just isn't fair! Sigh.... Oh well, I wouldn't be comfortable scooping the barn wearing all that anyway. I'll stick to my wranglers and sweat shirts and rubber boots. At least the horses recognize me that way.

Besides, by buying all that cowboy and cowgirl stuff, they are helping the economy and keeping jobs for Tony Lama employees, etc. And that is a very good thing.

BarrelRacinRami I think you meant this as in people who dress and try to play the role as a "trend" for the time being, not people who live in the city and like or want that lifestyle, but JUST those who do it because they think its in for the time being. I cannot believe how rude and immature people are. I respect you for being mature and simply letting go of the nasty comments rather than feeding their fire. You are entitled to your opinion and sadly over the Internet people will translate it however their minds decide to recreate it.

Goodness gracious, folks...!

This is a new member of the forum who simply posted an opinion. While it is OK to disagree, it is NOT OK to call her names and be so incredibly rude.

I would like to welcome you to the forum, Barrel, and offer an apology to getting such a rough welcome here. As Golden Horse said, imitation is a form of flattery. I simply look and chuckle at those pristine boots that will never see a pile of poop touch their lovely leather.

Don't get aggravated, get amused!!

Welcome Barrel.

There was just a conversation about this, so I think that's why you got such a rough response.

Personally I love my Ariat cowboy boots, but I never ride western. In fact I ride in breeches, so I don't wear them when I ride.

Tonight I am wearing an old kids hoodie, that's long on my wrists and so super comfy and slippers. Tomorrow, I have court with a foster kid, so I will be in a dress and heels. I grew up pretty wealthy as a kid, now I don't have enough money - so I fit into both roles rather well.
People can judge, and they do, tomorrow I will be in a dress suit in court with a black kid foster kid (I am white, he is not mixed race). They stare, they point to the person they are with, and they try to figure us out. I smile, because they have a small mind. I think it's good for their brains to get some exercise. Some of the rudest ask if the foster kids are my kids. Why should I disclose that they are foster kids, so I now just say yes, they are. I have 4 foster kids, all a year apart, one black, one Hispanic, two white.

For me personally, I don't judge someone on their weight, how they dress, their race, how attractive they are etc.

I really don't judge someone based on fashion. The best foster kid I have currently, in fact I think he is the best I have ever had - sags his pants. Usually I can break kids of this by pinching their underwear, that's horrifying to them and the pants get pulled up. This kid will run away from me and then pull his pants back down again. Someone judging this kid from his appearance would be doing him a great injustice. We have snow here, this kid shovels my elderly neighbors before he does my own sidewalk. Last week we were in our local diner, someone dropped $20 out of their pocket as they paid their bill. This kid got on his knees under the table and ran after the person.

I am certain that people judge my black kid for sagging his pants, and they would feel safer with my white kids. My white kids who dress normally would steal their wallet, my black kid would return it to them.

Therefore I don't judge someone based on their appearance. It means very little.

I kind of understand where you're coming from with being annoyed at city people who "dress up" like cowgirls, but then I realized that a real true cowgirl wouldn't care if others dressed like her because being a country girl is about more than just how you dress, it's about how you are on the inside and I know that sounds very cliche and it is but it's also true. Instead of being judgmental you should be proud that they admire you enough to dress like you (even if it's just outward appearance).

I also think that the truest cowgirl is confident enough in herself that she doesn't feel the need to get defensive and criticize "city people" for dressing like her because in the end, it's not about how you dress. Some of the best cowgirls I've known don't necessarily look like a "cowgirl" which goes to show that looks aren't everything.

On a different note, I like the equestrian style fashion. I think it's very adorable so I don't mind that other people like it and decide to wear it. :)
