It’s got nothing to do with breeds or feeds.

Do I take off my half chaps after a lesson, or keep them on?

It wouldn’t be much of a debate at all if I drove. Since I wait for the bus, I have to make a choice.

If I take off the half chaps and change my boots, then my sweaty calves are exposed to the chilly night air. If I don’t, then I walk around in the boots that I wear when I ride, which I just like to ride in, not walk in. It’s a hangover from when I used to do aerobics and didn’t wear my gym shoes in the street.

My riding boots are thin, which is why they’re good riding boots, there’s not much interference between my foot and the stirrup… but then my feet get cold.

Cold calves or cold feet? Can’t decide.
