Riverton, Wyoming - "No female shall ride a horse while attired in a bathing suit within the boundaries of Riverton, unless she be escorted by at least 2 officers of the law or unless she be armed with a club."

The law continues with this ammendment:  "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds."
