    I don't wear rings these days as my fingers like to swell at random (usually if exercising or if I have any alcohol), but when I did I took them off at the barn. Necklaces too. No dangly earrings or big hoops, just studs or the smallest hoops I can find. I took my eyebrow barbell out earlier this year and am glad it's gone, I hadn't realized how uneasy I was about it at the barn. Nothing on my wrists either, not even a watch.

    One thing I see a lot that always bugs me is listening to an ipod while riding. Nevermind the headphone cord, I need to be able to hear what's going on around me. I do however keep my cell in my front pocket when I ride, just in case something happens.

    Shoes with a heel (still rocking my 10 year old blundstones and half chaps) and long pants have always been standard to me...always a sports bra and whatever shirt as long as it's relatively close fitting. If it's cold I'll dress in easy-to-remove layers, no pullovers or anything like that.

    I don't wear ANY jewelry. Just a fact, not a brag...I'm not willing to lose 28k on a trail ride. Things happen. Even now there are reports that the emergency responders steal jewelry regurlarly. I'm more worried about that than anything.

    A woman at the goat barn was really tugging on a goat kid to help with the deliver, and she reached in there quite a few times. She lost her favorite college ring that night, and we searched EVERYWHERE. When we mucked out the barn we searched every single pitchfork, nothing. I still think it's in the goat that was delivering :)
    So no, she doesn't wear her rings while doing farm work anymore!

    Also, think about this. If something happens and your hand gets crushed, it will swell. More than likely they will have to cut the rings to get them off.

    That could happen from any type of accident in life.

    I am sentimental, my husband put my wedding ring on during our service, and it has never come off since. The only time I would remove it is in the case of an accident, if it means it has to be cut off to do that, then so be it. But I can break my hand falling on ice in winter completely unrelated to riding.

    I stopped wearing my engagement/wedding rings many years ago. Not just for riding, but the type of work I do they get all gummed up and I got tired of constantly cleaning them. They are now safely tucked away for my daughter someday.

    Funny story about rings. My bf and AI were at a restaurant on valentine's day and the couple behind us got engaged. HE looked at me and said, "so, you never really wear rings. Would you even want a ring if you got engaged, or would you prefer something of more use - like a horse trailer?"

    LOL, great story! That's is like my hubby and I, he was going to spend a small fortune on a ring and then asked the same, whether I wanted a ring or a custom saddle...I said saddle!

    I said a horse trailer but that to be in the correct spirit, he should have a giant ring painted on it. :)
