Oh,,And did you know that the rake heel is also called a riding heel because it will not slip through a stirrup. But no self respecting cowboy would ever be caught on a horse wearing them. He would forever be called a sissy !!

Well written and interesting MG! I used to own a pair of Doc Marten boots in my 'rebellious' years (I wasn't that much of a rebel really).

Good one, MG; reminds me of the joke about the kid who was traveling in the West and looking for cowboys.. The saw a man on a horse near the highway so he/she stopped to converse with him.. Noticing that the 'cowboy?' was wearing SNEAKERS, he/she asked why he wore sneakers instead of cowboy boots? The cowboy replied, 'I don't want to be mistaken for a TRUCK-DRIVER!'
I just love your wry sense of humour... Hank

What a great posting, MG. A good insight to your culture there. Priceless.

You covered all the footwear...but what if a rider is not wearing Nike's or one boot or the other...suppose that he is wearing moccasins. What does that say about the wearer (other than he may be a native american)?
