Agreed!

A "hats off" can also be a sign of respect for someone you may or may not know that has done something that you deem respect-worthy.

Perfect example is taking the hat off for the Pledge of Allegiance, the Flag, the National Anthem, and the Prayer.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

This turned out to be quite a fun thread...

Giddy up!

And same with spurs, NEVER walk into the cook house with your hat and spurs on!

At one time all we saw was black hats, especially at the shows, whether or not it suited a person. Now the color is often chosen to match a particular outfit. Good felt hats are expensive. If it's for everyday riding why not go with a good straw. A lot of people don't know that a good straw can be soaked and reshaped.

Black felt hobby horse hat matches my black smoothy chaps. Sand wrangler hat matches my sand hobby horse chaps. For shows only. You ride with me recreationally, you wear a helmet, I ain't holding your sippy cup for you or changing your depends if you incur a head injury.

I grew up a-dreamin' of bein' a cowboy,
And Lovin' the cowboy ways.
Pursuin' the life of my high-ridin' heroes,
I burned up my childhood days.
I learned of all the rules of the modern-day drifter,
Don't you hold on to nothin' too long.
Just take what you need from the ladies, then leave them,
With the words of a sad country song.
My heroes have always been cowboys.
And they still are, it seems.
Sadly, in search of, but one step in back of,
Themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.

Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery,
From being alone too long.
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightman,
Knowin' well that your best days are gone.
Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen,
I let the words of my years fade away.
Old worn-out saddles, and 'old worn-out memories,
With no one and no place to stay.

My heroes have always been cowboys.
And they still are, it seems.
Sadly, in search of, but one step in back of,
Themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.

Sadly, in search of, but one step in back of,
Themselves and their slow-movin' dreams.

Saddlebag, you don't have to buy a $500, 20x felt hat for every day riding or even smaller shows. My black felt that I've been wearing for everyday work for a little over 2 years only cost me $35 at my local western wear store. If I had kept it clean instead of working in it, it would have worked just fine for showing.

Still need to go get a hat.... right now I'm riding, workin and doing pretty much everything else in a ballcap. Found a Reams down here close that has some pretty decent hats but I'll make sure and check the buckle side before I buy.

Smith and Edwards has a good selection. They are just north of Ogden.

If I remember right you live in Salt Lake, check out AACallisters. Cowboy Boots, Cowboy Hats, Western Wear, Western Tack | AA Callisters they shouldn't be too far from you. I go there on a monthly basis, real stand up people who work there. Dustin is usually the one who shapes the hats. You just missed there big sale, but they always have some good deals. I was just in there yesterday to pick up some of Jim Rickens hoof ointment. I spent enough money there last month that they gave me a $15 gift certificate, my plans was to only spend the $15 on the hoof ointment, but of course I walked out with some "much needed" things and spent over $100. They get me everytime...

When you are sitting a top a horse, you are that much closer to God.
