So I've just been wondering what do you wear when you ride? Man that might've sounded odd... I ride western and english and I ride in my cowboy boots and jeans for both disciplines. However, I've been seeing and hearing from some people (outside of the forum) about riding attire for disciplines. For example, an english rider was ranting about how people shouldn't wear jeans and 'western' stuff to ride in an english saddle but english boots and breeches. I've also gotten a few looks from the dressage barn I took a couple of lessons at. I don't see the problem. Is there some secret I've been missing out on about what you wear effecting your riding ability? Haha This is just general riding, if I was showing that would be a different story. Just wanted to see your opinions.
I guess as another side point: Have you ever mixed disciplines tack? I.E. An english saddle and western bridle? I've done it a couple of times due to circumstances but just wanted to see what everyone thought on this?
