Exactly . Though I suspect you are probably going to be watching, correct?

If that's the case, you should wear whatever you want to, there are no rules on what's appropriate and what's not (though people might look at you funny if you ran around nekked ).

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/

Actually, that might not be such a bad one, I've seen more than once where a bull jumps the fence and winds up chasing everyone out of the bleachers .
