I paid 20 for my jodhpurs. And 22 for the mucker boots I ride in - I went for comfort over anything else. Add on 20 for a pair of half-chaps and that's me sorted for learning to ride!

I can understand boots costing more - they're difficult to fit and comfort is important, hence why I got the lovely fleece-lined boots. But how on earth can a pair of jodhpurs, no matter how fancy, cost more than 70 or so? Has every loop of the weave been hand-crafted to glue you into the saddle or something?!

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

wow. i know i ride a different discpline then most of you (saddlseat), but none of my stuff is that expensive. my ariats were like $200 or so, my ky jods were $110, & my show jackets range from $100 (ebay) to around $400 (glittery silk). i have most of my jackets custom made for around $200 a jacket in any color and material i want. ofcourse, its a local family friend, but im a jacket addict so she's worked her butt off.hehe.

but $800? i love to shop & splurge, but im sorry, enoughs enough!

I wear Mountain Horse...and love them. Unfortunately one day though I am afraid I will have to get some custom boots if I get to the level I want to achieve. My legs are fairly thin and extremely long...most boots don't ride where picky judges want them on me But that would probably only be if I went upper level in dressage...which Im still undecided on...I don't know that it would matter as much in stadium.
