anyone ever ridden in a skirt?
Just curious. I don't know if it would be a safety hazard. I have a long flowy skirt that I would like to wear but I am always out with the horses and I ride so just wondering.

To be honest i think it would be extremly uncomfortable and you would be sore in certain ares for a long time =P

I've ridden bareback in skirts before. I don't like wearing them with a saddle though, because I fear that something will get caught if I fall and I'll get dragged. Also, chafing...Ouch... Yeah. I'm just going to stick with bareback.

I rode in a dress for my wedding. Holly and Patrick's Wedding - BabyFacePhotos' Photos
A couple of girls that used my horses for a parade wore skirts, and they rode astride. Their skirts were very long and covered most of the rump behind the saddle. I don't know anyone that does it a lot though, I think it gets in the way more than anything.

I just got married and I wore this BEAUTIFUL dress. It was extremely long and I honestly had some troubles walking on it. I wanted to have pictures with my horse but my mom(she bought my dress) told me I wasn't allowed to wear it with my horse cause I would ruin it and she isn't tall enough...she would trip as well...here is a picture of my dress.http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4006/...a4b7cca1_b.jpg http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4024/...6fca6774_o.jpg
the first one was takin by my husband's mom and the last one was taken by my friend :)
I have to wait for the professional ones

That sure is a beautiful dress Gidget, you guys look very happy together.
As for riding in a skirt apart from the things mentioned by the others, chafe, pinching, if your horse is used to wearing a cover it shoulden't be a problem.

If my cutoffs are dirty I will wear these
kind of skirts bareback. I don't like..wear them out in public, though. lol. I just wear them back on our trails.

I am like brighteyes, I would worry about it getting caught on something and getting dragged. It probably doesn't help that I would rather have fleas than wear a dress, though, huh? LOL.

Thanks for asking this! I want to ride bareback for some photos in a long flouncy skirt and was wondering about the level of weird glances I'd get, lol! You could wear pants or something underneath to make you more comfortable if it's real riding riding and not just posing.
