Embarrassing moments? I would guess everyone has something on under the dress

I see no problems poundinghooves


PS, they make Western Endurance Saddles without the horn if anyone foresees a horn as a problem

I was just thinking this very thing. All you younguns need to go watch a few Roy Rogers, Lone Ranger, The Virginian and see what the ladies wore in seat. Lol

No need to feel like you owe anyone an explanation! Lots of women ride in skirts I would love to see pictures! I have a friend whos religion requires her to wear a skirt and she rides in it no problem. She has actually done barrel racing and jumpers. She now just pleasure rides.

Congrats on the new horse!

In a councours class in the UK riding in a dress is perfectly normal.
You get lovely turnouts like this:


That sai I don't think I'd want to ride in a denim skirt

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I do have a question actually.
How do you prevent a wardrobe malfunction on a windy day? Are the skirts weighted by their size?

I've never had an issue with a malfunction while wearing a kilt on a horse... Other than the nice breeze.

^___ that made me giggle.

I've never ridden in a skirt before because I happen to be a total clutz and I often ride very green, very fresh horses for other people. I have enough trouble with my shirts and stuff. I tore one of my favorite shirts from armpit to my belly button once when I was dismounting one of our three year old geldings and he got startled (totally my fault) by me flipping the reins forwards out of the way AT A RIDING DEMONSTRATION. O_o Most embarressing thing I've ever done on horseback! So me in a skirt? I'm thinking that's a recipe for disaster.

I have to say though, I love how elegant it looks and if I rode a sane horse (my current mount is a very hot, rather dumb 8 year old xD) I would ride in one sometimes just for the cool factor. I think its awesome that you aren't going to let your skirt keep you from riding OP, and I definitely don't think you should be embarressed by it. Riding in a skirt it totally fine. Riding in the nude where the public eye can see you *coughcoughneighborgag* however, is another story!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

If there are under wear under there then its a dress.

I've done it sidesaddle. All respect to you for managing it astride. And I will try my absolute best to restrict my comments to your horse, and not your wardrobe.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha.... I guess embarrassing moments happen when you wear something else too.

But wouldn't be too easy to hang on horn if it's too wide? That would be my primary concern (the "look" is something I wouldn't even care about really).
