I’m always a bit embarrassed when I have to stop at the grocery story in full riding regalia — breeches, boots, and sometimes I discover I’m still wearing my spurs. I live in a town where showing up like that doesn’t draw a lot of stares (more likely I run into other riding folks I know), but still . . .
Well, I won’t cringe any longer. At the airport last week I saw a woman wearing “equestrian inspired” boots with wimpy little fake spurs attached to them!
At least my spurs are authentic.
