Breeches and Chaps

I am looking to buy a specific looking kind of breeches. I want them to be black with a full seat, good ratings, and not over $50 But, they have to be in children sizes. I am to small to fit in a small ladies, but If you can find an extra small, that would work as well. I know this would be hard to find, so that why I am asking if there are any links anyone has that would have breeches like these? Also, I need to buy a pair of chaps as well. They have to be black to match my paddock boots, and can't be to big. It would be nice if they were leather, but they don't have to be. I found these online:
TuffRider Grippy Grain Half Chaps -

Would these be nice? I have never bought chaps before, but I have worn them. They look good, but I just want to make sure. I am going to a show in two weeks and I need a pair of these. Or, do you think these would be good?
TuffRider Childrens Starter Field Boots -

I think it might be better to just buy a pair of field boots. Opinion? Advise? It would be a lot of help!

Are your feet done growing? If they are, then maybe go for the tall boots. If not, probably half chaps. I have never had synthetic tall boots, so I don't know how comfortable they would be. Maybe make you really sweaty, I'm not sure.

I personally really like riding inhalf chaps and paddock boots. I think it might be better to just go with that for now, and try to begin saving for nicer tall boots. Then when you have $200, you can get good tall boots which should last you several years, and wear them when you want to "dress up" but you will still have your paddock boots and half chaps for muddy days or schooling or whatever. That combination works nicely for me.

Just check with the show to see if "schooling attire is permitted" if it doesn't say that, you may have to have tall boots to be dressed appropriately.

Thanks! Yeah, my feet are still going to grow, that's why I wasn't sure If I should get the shoes or not. I also do find chaps to be very comfy, and the ones that I have worn were leather, so I don't know exactly what these are like. And, the show does allow chaps. I double checked that this morning. =)

I love these two brands. For chaps I buy Dublin. I use the these for everyday ride cause they are easy to clean
And the suede for showing. Http://
I have small calves so Dublin is great cause the are nice and tight jsut what you want.

Mu favor breeches are kerrits but they run up to $100 for full seat. Kerrit does come in xs. Kerrit does have knee patches for around 50 but that's onsale a lot of the time.

For inexpensive I would start with tuffrider and see how you like it.

I helpful hint tights are cheaper then breechers

boots, breeches, chaps, opinion, show
