From Endurance to Dressage
Please tell me your laundry pile looks like this. Riding wear on the left, normal clothes on the right. Admittedly, last weekend's laundry pile was slightly unusual as I had the week off from work which meant I wasn't wearing work clothes.
Even so, on a normal work week, my non-riding pile isn't very big. In fact, I own more riding clothes than non-riding clothes. Either I need to quit shopping for breeches, or I need to start shopping for real clothes.
Honestly, what's in your laundry basket?

LOL! Mine is similar, but I luckily get to work in a very casual office environment, so jeans & a tee shirt are my work clothes, & I just wash everything together with a LOT of odor eliminator! :D

I wear jeans to work too so I do the same thing! LOL Even so, my riding clothes outnumber my work clothes. I can re-wear jeans. :0)

I keep a separate laundry basket for riding clothes. I general rewear things as much as possible and try to do regular laundry once a month or less. The riding gear gets washed more often than my regular clothes because they get sweaty and dirty and can't get reworn as much.

Once a month?!?!?! How do you have enough pairs of undies? lol

About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
