I didn't know Cabelas had riding gear! Or do you mean in general?

Other than boots they don't, but they have real out door gear that is comfortable, and not just for looks or with a fancy label. The jeans I mentioned fit pretty much like normal jeans but are rain proof.

I like to ride in a good, heavier stretch denim. Most of my riding is done in the bush and on the trails, so that demin protects my legs!

Wrangler boots with a squared toe. Hate the pointy toes. I have the extra wide and wear my cutsie horse socks with them. Comfy!

Tee shirt in summer, longer sleeves in autumn, parka in the winter

I wear my Troxel helmet. Too old to get a concussion now!

I mentioned on another thread the company, "Smoothstride". They have a trailrider pant that has a full seat and is very stretchy and durable. Also riding jeans and other good stuff. While they arent exclusively for plus size, I am a size 18 and I find I am NOT at the top of what they offer.

I ride in a T-shirt and my plus sized stretch jeans from Catherine's. I have some Justin Gypsies that I can't wait until I can get back on. I'm a little reluctant to ride in tennis shoes...

Daughter insists I ride in a helmet these days - never wore one back in the day because I never thought about it.

I can't wait to ride in my new Kerrits Microcord kneepatch breeches, I bought a brand new pair on ebay for $59 they came a few days ago, they fit beautifully, but I haven't had a chance to ride in them yet. I bought 2X, because that's what they had on offer, and could maybe of got away with 1X.

I love my Tally Ho breeches, very roomy and comfortable, but lacking knee patches.

I also bought a pair of Enduracool breeches during the summer, I bought large, and they go on and I can ride in them no problems, but the mozzies just bite right through them

For helmets, Troxel gives me a headache, I'm a IRH sort of person.

I ride in t-shirts and stretch jeans. I LOVE the sort of snug-fitting stretch jeans, because they don't ride up like looser jeans can. The only bad part is that they can get tore-up out on the trail. Which is why I sometimes ride in chinks. But not in the middle of summer when it's hot. The rest of the year chinks are great for saving my jeans!

I wear a troxel helmet but also ride in tennis shoes. I can't help but think a boot would keep my foot in the stirrup if I fell because my foot wouldn't come out as readily. Backwards from normal thinking I know! But my tennis shoes are really loose and fall off easy and I don't think boots would.

So yeah, t-shirts, stretch jeans, chinks, helmet, tennis shoes, lol!

Oh, and I also like underwear with a little stretch in them too, and really flat elastic that doesn't rub.

I was so happy the other day that I tried on some new jeans and fit into a size 18! (I used to be a size 24, so 18 is a big improvement!)

Trailhorse, I am truly inspired! I may try riding Dancer this weekend, even if I can't get my boot on my left foot. I do remember riding in tennis shoes- daughter will have a hissy fit, but I will at least wear that dang helmet she insists on, so maybe she won't give me too much grief!

And the underwear thing? For me it's plain white cotton grandma pants. Very comfy - and I've been wearing them since I was 15! Well, not the same pair, of course!
