I take my rings (non-wedding) off but more for the sake of the integrity of the ring, never thought about the danger to my digits!!

I'm also too lazy to clean the grime off them afterwards.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

There are plenty of times you should be careful wearing any jewelry (e.g. using machinery, tools) but I never take my wedding band's easily been more than 20 years since I even took it off to buff it up a bit.

Well I'm obviously not married, but I do have a purity ring, and I don't ever wear mine to the farm. Why? I've lost one before...and it wasn't even on my hand o.o I'd attached it to a chain around my neck! Its probably still out there somewhere laughing at me to this day :3

I do not wear mine. Never really thought of the danger it is more for the fact that I don't want to get it bent or crushed while doing something. My DH got his hand caught (smashed) with his ring and the ring actually saved his finger because it is a tungsten and will not bend. He was wearing gloves. Never thought of losing a finger, wow.

I wear not just my wedding ring, but 3 more. Plus necklace with pendant and anklet.

Thanks for all of the responses. I think... since I am so very accident prone, I am going to start taking mine off to ride. It is a simple smooth ring but hey.... knowing my luck, it will happen ha ha.

I have a small claddagh ring that only comes off for exams and then it goes in the pocket of my hacking jacket or my jodphurs. I wear gloves while I ride so the chances of it getting caught on anything are minimal at best. I wear it while I muck out and all other yard jobs without an issue. It's part of me.

I ordinarily wear gloves...but not b/c of my ring. I got a rope burn once that left me "one handed" for weeks. After that, I decided them there gloves weren't so hot on my mittens, after all.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I don't wear rings for the reason the OP stated. I was always told not to wear rings while roping ESPECIALLY for the increased chances of losing a finger.

It's not a wedding ring I have, but I still take it off. I don't want it falling into the muck heap or bedding without me realising!
