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.
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! =]
