I don't like those sorts of things myself. I thought I was being pretty wild by straying from my black/brown theme recently by buying a light blue shirt. However, if my 60 year old mom were into horses she would probably buy every single thing posted here, especially in pink. Fashion sense is not something I find admirable, but I do admire "this is what I like and f*ck you" spirits, even when it leads to bedazzled fanny packs and puffy paint tourist shirts. It makes me really happy.
TTFW, perfect. That's how I feel about it too. Today I wore black breeches, a black t shirt and grey thermal shirt over that, and a Mariner's hoodie. The t shirt (bottom most layer) did have a sheep on it, but no horses. Ha!

Nope. I stick to adult clothes- no T-shirts art, running horses, etc. The closest I get to things on my clothes is the little polo pony logo on the Ralph Lauren polos, or the little alligator on the Lacoste polos.
I have some joules polos but not tshirts with horsies. I think even some of the joules polos are a little ridiculous looking. I wear running tights instead of breeches in the summer. I'm not very girly though, so I have not ever liked them!
I like T-shirts or something tasteful, which in my opinion does not include anything with "bling", anything "cowgirl" or with lettering made to draw attention to certain parts of the anatomy, or things worn in completely inappropriate ways...anyone ever go to a sale or auction and see someone walking around in breeches, boots and spurs who is NOT riding a horse in a ring that day, but rather shopping or waiting to bid? Especially when no horses are present? Just stupid...like they can't put their gear on in the car or at the barn???
Okay... I like to wear stuff with horses on it! I just won this tshirt (chocolate brown color) in a raffle: http://equusunlimited.com/irideon/ir...ng-sleeve-tee/ and I LOVE IT. Flattering fit, comfortable, looks great with breeches, and I think the design is cute! I also have a sheer blouse with silhouettes of horses on it that was a gift from my VERY fashionable and stylish SIL, so that one's "acceptable". And I have 2 "bad pony" tshirts: www.badponyclothing.com because I think they're hilarious and adorable. So sue me.
But I would not be caught DEAD in one of those screen-printed flowing-mane-in-the-mist shirts! EW.

I have an assortment of Alabama Charity and World Championship Horse Show t-shirts- I'm wearing one right now.
However, I wouldn't be caught dead in generic animal picture clothing of any kind. I don't do cute, period. If DH and I are going somewhere and happen to put on the same color shirt- one of us changes so we don't match.
I like some horse printed clothing items, but not for anything "serious"...just for fun. I LOVE the iHorse sweatshirt in Back in the Saddle...mostly because I do ride with my iPod quite a bit, and folks at the barn are used to seeing me with it (I only ride with one earbud in so I can hear what's going on around me, safety folks).
I have a cool t-shirt from WEG...navy blue with a cool swirly design and horse on the front and World Equestrian Games in French across the top. I also have a couple of the Life is Good tees (jumping horse, just the horse head with the straw in his mouth).
And, in non-horsey-but-still-screen-printed tees, I still have all the concert tees I've bought over the years....several U2 tees, Nickel Creek, Sting, etc.
That said - some of the all-over, crazy horse designs that Kerrits, Irideon, and others have come out with in the last few years....eeewww, no.
I don't do the "flowing manes in the breeze unicorns" either, lol. (The few that have shown up in my posession are reserved for use on horse- or dog-bathing days and the like, and never leave my back yard. )
However, I do own and wear shirts and hats from shows/races/various horsey events I've been involved with or have gone to see. Some have just words/logo, others have a horse design of one kind or another. I like to wear them, reminds me of some really awesome times I've had and places I've been.
