Thanks @Oreos Girl ! I have had good luck with boys outwear- my favorite rain coat ever is a boys coat I bought 15+ years ago. Don't know why I didn't think about the boots. I just bought a new pair on sale over the winter but next time I'm shopping, I will see what I can find!

i always buy men's western riding boots, even my show boots, as for some reason, they make women's boots so narrow and often not as 'as fashionable, LOL
Recent picture, or a day ago-absolutely no style!

Just as aside note, we did see tracks of this local resident!


My brother, out from Ontario for a trail ride . We told him to wear what was comfortable, and he did!The pants were rather loud, LOL!

Oh man, once I go to the barn there is no way I'm taking my breeches off for the rest of the day xD So comfy!!

I would recommend looking into pull-on breeches (I have a pair of Kerrits) with kneepatch. Mine feel like yoga pants but the kneepatch gives just that extra bit of grip

This is a cool thread! I mostly trail ride. Personally I don't find breeches very comfortable as they ride up on me or cut into my fat too much to be comfortable. I do have a pair that are comfortable when I'm at my preferred weight, they are cavallo's and were quite expensive. That being said, I still much prefer leggings/yoga tights as they don't ride up, are thin and light, and super comfy. I haven't had an issue with my tights wearing out prematurely but i do recommend either chaps or high boots, because otherwise the lower legs will get rubbed to pieces.

Boots wise, I have long rubber boots, my show boots, and my ariat terrain boots. I wear my ariat terrain boots mostly as they are so comfy and great when I need to lead a horse etc. They are pretty pricey though!

Nothing more attractive than a lady in boots, jeans, and hat....IMO....

Hate to break it to you, but I don't think most of us are all that concerned about looks when we're in the deep woods, miles from the nearest house, alone with our horses. Or maybe that's just me... still, those breeches that look like jeans just might make it into my closet one of these days.

If that is ALL, then she'll get a nasty sunburn around here!

Add in a T-shirt or flannel shirt, though, and I have no idea how the fashion people stay in business. I think most people look better riding a horse down a trail than dressed up to the nines.

But of course, when I see someone riding down a trail, I mostly see the horse...

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

What I ride in likely qualifies as weird to most people (including many riders!), but it is comfy and functional for me:

Good luck finding what works for you!

Yet, this is a fashion thread called "Because wardrobe is terribly important".

I will 3rd (or is it 4th?) Kerrits. I love mine.
