Top Ten Back On Track Question #3 – What’s the strangest comment you’ve ever received wearing riding clothes in public?

Over four weeks, Heels Down Magazine hosted a contest on our Instagram account (@heelsdownmag – make sure to go follow, if you don’t already do).  Each week, a new question was posted and participants had an opportunity to enter to win a Back On Track Mesh Sheet (valued at $249.00) for their horse.

Here are our top 10 entries from week three, who will all be entered in to the final drawing to win big. Question #3 was: What’s the strangest comment you’ve ever received wearing riding clothes in public?

@autumnsreign – “Oh! I’m sorry! I thought you had no pants on from a distance!” – while wearing my tan show breeches into zehrs.

@_little_miss_equestrian_ – Someone asked me if I go scuba diving in my breeches🤣🤔

@pony_rider_02 – I forgot to take my helmet off when I walked into the gas station and the cashier treated my like I was special ed 😂 she asked why I was wearing a helmet I was like umm. I forgot to take it off😂😂😂

@lauren.m.hill – When I was twelve I bought a new leather show crop and carried it around town as I finished shopping. One of the iron man impersonator photo prop people asked me if I was “too young to be selling what I was”

@westalbanyexpress – “Are you from the circus?”

@mrskailal – “What is that SMELL?'” 😳 I think Eau De Pony is the best but I guess others don’t. What they don’t know is that smell is way more $$ than any designer perfume!

@alexandrasmitty – “is that girl naked? oh its just tan leggings….with butt pads? Fashion man, fashion.”

@bueno_9889 – At the grocery store “which baseball team are you playing for?? 😂😂😂

@timberlinefarm – Did you lose a bet?!

@conner_renee – “You’re a little tall to be a jockey.”
