cellulite is likely to startle the other horses isn't it? Confused

It'd be bloody painful I'd imagine!

Chaftastic! It always seems like a good idea and it never is.

You do NOT have cellulite! Grin no one as gorgeous as you has excess flab!
Last time I rode in shorts, I ended up covered in bruises from the stirrups. My alternative of choice, is to wear the shorts, but wear my lovely, butter soft suede full chaps on top. that way, you get a bit of ventilation!

It's nice bareback actually - really soft - but only in walk riding in from the field!. Not in public!!

I used to hack out in shorts and jodhpur boots in the summer. It does wonders to teach you to keep your lower leg still, in trot and canter as well as walk. Jumping straw bales required a lot of concentration at maintaining the correct position!

Baking hot sunday and I made the executive decision to ride without gloves. BIG mistake... 40 minutes later, my hands looked as though they'd been flayed. :(

DD rode yesterday in shorts & no gloves, but only for like 5-10 minutes at a time (friend's pony).
