It doesn't have a hood, but I actually usually do ride in hoodies because I like the extra warmth around my neck. But this jacket zips up around my neck sort of like a loose turtle neck, so it does a pretty good job. I always ride in a helmet so I can never put the hood up when I'm riding anyway. But in general, I like hoodies.


So if you guys have a Walmart, check the hunting section. All the hunting jackets were on sale! (And for trail riding, water resistant is a plus in my book).
The hunting section is cleaned out in my Walmart, except for the pants. Just was in there looking today.

Water resistant would be great! Hoodies weigh twice as much wet


Looked at the athletic jackets, one looked ok but not really good. They have some sort of weird shape, with different material on the top and bottom. Not sure how to describe it, but it was strange.

" do you think horse hair would be an issue? I don't care from an appearance perspective, but if the hairs won't come out in the wash and poke me I would be so itchy.ope, they wash easy and the hair ends up in the dryer lint trap.
If you go to the store people think you have a cat!

I've had people ask if my dog is brown and I would be confused wondering why they asked...then notice them staring at a spot on jacket...see horse hairs


At work one morning a few years back a new person said "Is that HAY in your HAIR????"

Another coworker replied (for me) "There probably is, she has horses"

I reached up and felt around, sure enough there was a piece of hay there! I tossed it in the trash and smiled

Sitting out at a restaurant for dinner with my lovely husband, he looks at me funny and sighs. Then he reaches over and whispers, "there is HAY in your HAIR AGAIN," brushing it away He sounded so resigned to the fact that you really can't clean me up...

Hey, if I found out a date/prospective date was into horses, the conversation would immediately be "horses? You ride? Where? Do you own horses? Are there pictures? Tell me everything."

This while finding hay in every article of clothing I own, including stuff I've not only washed, but have never worn to the barn.

OP: Dover Saddlery's latest mailing advertises specifically a line of fancy riding hoodies, so I think you're safe on that. Some of the "tech" hoodies by underarmour and their imitators (check walmart, target) are water-resistant too.

Everyone wears hoodies! I guess the riding clothes manufacturers are just trying to smarten us up

How much for the third horse

That horse is for sale at auction Feb 8th in Utah. He is 12yo and grade but is trained to team rope as well as other things so I am guessing he goes for north of $5K but south of $12K.

This is his add at that sale and it has video:

Way out of my price range! Don't need a header or a heeler, or a cow savvy horse at all really...too far away also. Wonder who buys all those horses...
