Clothing for riding
Riding clothes are expensive, at least the typical English style clothes are. So I save mine for "special occasions"
I am always searching for alternatives, in everyday wear that work for me.
Shirts are not really an issue, because the ones for runners can be bought fairly inexpensively and do great for cooling in the hot weather.
Cold weather, can just layer shirts, but jackets are another issue. I can't ear anything that makes noise (like a slippery raincoat) on Chivas. So traditionally have worn what I call my "fancy riding jacket" which is really a hoodie!
But recently have become concerned r/t the hood hanging on my back. If I came off (this has happened) and the horse stepped near my head catching his hoof in the hood, it could be a disaster.
Any thoughts/comments on alternatives to purpose made equestrian clothing?
