I haven't, actually.

I've always preferred wearing them at my cross country length, even for stadium.

Really ? I usually do a hole longer for stadium. Your leg go basically good, but you are pretty far out of the tack for stadium. I would give it a try, even if its just when you're schooling.

I think you look lovely but if you don't mind, I have a question for those critiquing.

It looks to me like her hips are behind her ankles instead of above, which I thought would be the correct position (above). Yet, her ankles are definitely behind the girth where I think they should be. Is this what you are all meaning by "hunter butt"?

Thanks, Strange, for permitting me to learn off your thread! :) (As if I asked before barging in!)

@gypsy - I used to do that, but I suppose I'm just more comfortable in the shorter length. I definitely feel a bit more secure.

@catsandhorses - Lol thanks! And it's no problem. We're all here to learn!

What you are seeing is someone who has a solid leg and upper body, and keeping them where they are supposed to be.

But, I also do not see hunter butt at all in any of Strange's photos.
