If you have a hankering to go riding, first you need to dress up in the latest style of riding gear. A hat to keep the sun out of your face, a snazzy silk western shirt, riding pants that have balloon thighs and boots that come up to the knees. Notice that her pants were tucked inside of the boots.
Actually, this is a picture of my mom before I was born. She was very stylish and always had a gorgeous smile.

I am not sure how my dad felt astride that horse – he was a city slicker from Chicago. Driving on the dirt roads in Idaho especially over a mountain nearly scared him spitless. All that western gear and life was high adventure to a youngster from Illinois.
