Hi! First of all, I just had my first jumper lesson yesterday, and it was amazing. By the end of the lesson I was jumping an 18inch vertical then a one foot cavaletti at the canter! It was the most fun I have had in a really long time. Even though it scares my mom, I think riding hunter jumper is calling me right now. The trainer was great, and the horse was amazing. He was really fast, I've never ridden a throughbred before! The trainer said I did really good, I had a fabulous time and met some great girls I might ride with in a class in the future.
So onto the questions. I have a pair of tall dress boots, but they are too large in the calf and feel restricting. The were my aunts, so they werent fitted for me. I was wondering about boots and breeches. When are paddock boots appropriate to ride in? Can you wear them without half chaps? Difference between schooling tights and breeches? Whats better, full seat covered on the pants or just the knees? What about bootcut riding tights? Can you wear those with western boots just for comfort?
