I don't wear riding clothes on purpose when I go out, however if I am coming back from a lesson or trail ride & I have to stop for something, sure. Although I love the smell of horse on me, when I smell it on other peops in public, it seems like dirty, stinky laundry, like you come from a hoarder house.

ROFL! Oh I so think this every time I see someone wearing fake boots or jodhpurs. I feel like walking up to them and saying "Hi,, care to meet Brock? You look the part, I'm sure he won't hurt you...too much!"

I had to look up what "jodhpurs" were. anyway about your question I have always been a big believer in "my house, my rules" so... If you are living at home and Dad says no, it only respectful, to respect his wishes. I would say "Dad if it really bothers you that much I will not wear them."

I should add my hubby also encourages me to wear chaps and spurs around the house.

But... How do you KNOW they don't ride a horse? I have a pair or two of fake boots. They were cheaper than 'real' boots, and they work just as good.

As for these 'jodhpurs' (I also had to look it up, they look like breeches to me) - as is evident by this thread, people who ride do indeed wear them in public. Just because a person wears their breeches and 'fake' boots doesn't mean they DON'T ride - if anything, I'd think it means they do! (I've never met anybody who doesn't ride who likes the look of breeches enough to go buy a pair).

Good to know if I wear my fake boots I'm going to be judged by other people who ride!

If your SO is constantly trying to change your behavior or how you dress that is a warning sign for the therapist in me.
I would be concerned about how he asked me and why it bothers him.
If it is solely because he doesnt like it IMO you should look closely at other "issues" in the relationship.
He sounds too controlling for my taste. Shalom

Whoa, guys, way to all jump to conclusions.

The OP gave me the impression that this was a friendly disagreement, like the one me and my SO have about his driving every time we're in the car. Not the kind of argument where he's demanding she not wear something and being overly controlling.

If this post is all we have to go on, I'd say you guys are assuming too much. We have NO proof, the original post seemed lighthearted.

If he IS demanding you not do something in true anger, that's an issue. If it's a friendly dispute, than go out of your way to wear them ALL the time ;)

Shoebox I have no idea what the dynamics of the relationship are.
If this is the only thing her SO has an issue with and its not causing major problems I would not worry about it.
However what someone wears is a very personal decision and something IMPO that should be an individuals choice.
If the OP is going to a formal dinner or event in riding clothes then I might comment on that if I was her SO.
What my partner wears does not reflect on me unless it is too revealing or very inapropriate. Shalom
