What do you wear to the barn?

When you are not riding,what do you wear to the barn? Like..when your cleaning stalls,grooming,feeding... you don't want to get your riding pants dirty..

I am looking for a pair of pants that i can wear to the barn early in the morning. Im not a fan of wearing jeans.

Im also looking for a pair of shoes to wear to the barn. I don't want to wear my riding sneakers or my paddock boots.

So if you guys can help me out that would be great. Let me know where i can find these pants and shoes.

I just wear my paddock boots and jeans. So I'm no help at all, ha ha.
You could always buy some muck boots or something for just doing stalls and hanging out.
As for pants, whatever is comfortable for you should work.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

When I was a working student at a Fox Hunting/Eventing barn for 2 years - depending on weather...

I did allot of stall mucking, water bucket cleaning, turning horses in and turning horses out - depending on weather.

Summer: Knee high shorts, tank top, Joules Rubber Boots
Winter : Sweat Pants, Bibbed Winter Pants, Turtle Neck, Vest, Toque

If I rode before I cleaned stalls, I would wear my riding tights, and my Joules Rubber Boots.

You know - I wear allot of tights, and if you don't want to use your expensive riding pants, you can always go to Walmart and buy the tights they have, that you see so many tweens and teens wearing now-a-day *fashion recycles, I wore those in the 80's*

Better known as exercise stretch pants - I have TONS of these that I use for summer riding. Cheap, do a great job for schooling in, and you don't have to worry about ruining them when mucking stalls.

Rubber Boots. Can never go wrong with Rubber Boots :)

For mucking, I wear rubber boots and jeans, but if I wasn't going to wear jeans I'd wear track pants, or cargo pants/shorts. A t-shirt, with a sweater, jacket, and vest in the winter. The rubber boots for sure though!

I actually love wearing jeans around the barn. Usually with a t-shirt and sweater or hoodie (if needed). Track pants or "comfy" pants are great too.
