Mounted Shooting Dress or Pants
So I'm getting into mounted shooting and I was wondering if I should go really traditional and stick with a dress or if I should take the easy route and stick with pants. I am not sure how hard it would be to ride in a dress. I still really haven't found anything I like so if you guys could help me find something by posting pictures and such it would be great. Thanks bunches.
Just from personal experience, I'd go with pants. I've seen a lot of women that ride in the traditional dress, but it takes a really well trained horse to tolerate the drape over their bum. I've ridden in a dress, and it is a bit odd at first.
Also, I'd advise if you're going with the dress, make your own. Even if you wear a button down shirt tucked into a high waisted denim skirt, it would look traditional. You can find denim-type fabric at Wal-Mart, and if you need a pattern, you could probably find on there too. I advise wearing pants or shorts under the skirt though.
Yeah, If I were to do the dress then I would do pant bloomers underneath. My friend is a seamstress so I was going to have her make it. If I ever find something I like.
