What do y'all wear when you trail ride?

Well lately I've been thinking about maybe wearing something more different when I trail ride so that the customers knows that I work there. Now I generally wear a t-shirt and some jeans and maybe a belt with a big buckle. Its comfortable but I don't really like the way it looks and I'm tired of ruining my t-shirts. So do you guys have any pictures or suggestions?
Thanks,
~Lu

I never ride in jeans unless they're really stretchy ones and couldn't cope with a big buckle either - too much to undo when I need to visit the 'rest room (nearest large bush)
I wear breeches (lowest price I can find that are comfortable), either a polo shirt or a thin cotton shirt (TJ Maxx,Tractor Supply etc), half chaps and wide fitting short boots as I have feet that can't stand being cramped - or if I think I'm likely to end up walking through water I wear long rubber boots

What would you wear instead of the t-shirt?

When I ride with others, I'm the only one with a real cowboy type hat and being that I've worn it for YEARS really shows that I'm a horse person... and that I need a new hat.

I did a quick Google search and found this place with lots of horse images that you could add plus some text. Min. Of 12 but all considered, not a bad price.

Being custom and "required" for your work would make they tax deductable.

What about a button or a reflective vest? You might be able to get something printed on the back.

Blue jeans and a pull over or button up T-shirt with either a baseball cap, no hat or my leather cowboy hat. Just depends on what is at hand to throw on my head when the sun is beaming down on my solar panel head.

Men's stretch Wranglers and a t-shirt, or sweatshirt if it's cooler.
I'm a trail rider and I want to be comfortable...that's a top priority.

Jeans, chaps, a t-shirt and a helmet since my gelding is young and stupid. I trail ride in my dressage saddle so I claim the helmet matches the saddle! Since obviously jeans, full chaps and cowboy boots don't... LOL

My normal clothes. Jeans and a tshirt. Sweatshirt if it's chilly.

A custom screenprinted shirt might be a good idea, if you want to look like you work somewhere.

This is my normal riding attire


I agree with others, if you are wanting to let folks know that you work there, then your best bet is likely some form of printed shirt.

If you wanted to look really fancy (depending on the type of place that you work) you might consider a monogrammed shirt of some kind. If it's more of an English type place, a Polo shirt monogrammed with the business name and your name would look nice. If it's more of a western type place, perhaps a short sleeved button down shirt with the same monogramming.

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/

I wear comfy jeans (either stretch or a size up from what I normally wear) and a tank top if its the middle of summer, light weight T-shirt, and maybe a hoodie on cooler days.

I agree with everyone else - a custom shirt of some sort would be a solution to the issue of knowing you work there.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
