^___ that made me giggle.
I've never ridden in a skirt before because I happen to be a total clutz and I often ride very green, very fresh horses for other people. I have enough trouble with my shirts and stuff. I tore one of my favorite shirts from armpit to my belly button once when I was dismounting one of our three year old geldings and he got startled (totally my fault) by me flipping the reins forwards out of the way AT A RIDING DEMONSTRATION. O_o Most embarressing thing I've ever done on horseback! So me in a skirt? I'm thinking thats a recipe for disaster.
I have to say though, I love how elegant it looks and if I rode a sane horse (my current mount is a very hot, rather dumb 8 year old xD) I would ride in one sometimes just for the cool factor. I think its awesome that you aren't going to let your skirt keep you from riding OP, and I definitely don't think you should be embarressed by it. Riding in a skirt it totally fine. Riding in the nude where the public eye can see you *coughcoughneighborgag* however, is another story!
