Thanks so much! My BO has a pair of tall boots that fit me, but I think I would rather have the short boots and half chaps. Today I actually rode in tennis shoes and half chaps because I don't have boots yet.. Haha.
But I have a question - I never had this problem western, but I seem to be losing my stirrups at times during my rides. I try not to put too much weight in my stirrups and depend on them too much, but I also try to keep my heel down.. So what could I be doing wrong?
