socks or half chaps

Right now I am tight on money before I start my job(waiting for my shirt to come in).Winter shows are coming up and I would like to compete. They said the only mandatory thing you need is boots for competing.Anyways my breeches like to scoot up..they are super long ones and I was wondering if it would look tacky if I wore my riding socks slightly over the breeches so my skin isn't showing. I can't afford breeches probably till next month.

How long are your breeches Gidget? Are they long enough to use jodhpur clips?

If they were jeans they would be high waters...they just go above my ankle..1 inch and 1/2 to 2 inches I am guessing.

Hm, they would be too short for joddie clips. That was my only suggestion, sorry. I don't know what the competition rules are like in your area. I hope you find a fix for it! =]

Here they are where they start off but with my boots on while riding they end up here


And then

OH! I just remembered! When I competed as an under 17, we weren't allowed chaps or long boots or gaiters and when our jodhpur clips broke, we used rubber bands instead. Could you try that? We did it by slipping the rubber band over our joddies, putting them in the position we wanted and then rolling the rubber band down to just above the bottom of our joddies. It worked really well. Of course, don't make the band too tight! =]

Thats a good idea!
I think I might give that ago. Of course I am 22 but that juuust might do the trick..I will practice with them first to make sure they work for me.

Haha, better looking a tad childish than having your breeches ride up. I hope it works for you!

:P I agree! It's okay..sometimes people think I'm in high school...of course I won't lie about my age but I will try it out and hopefully it I need thick bands?
