    Ahh Serfina I am so taking a warm bath now that you suggested it!! Posting was what killed me, I was panting after the hour!! Oh mann

    Okay quick question for everyone, what type of boots do you wear for lessons? A friends bought me Auken (sp?) Field boots, they go up to my knee. They are super comfy but aren't they strictly for show jumping?

    Since I teach and am on and off horses, my daily footwear are Ariat paddock boots with matching half chaps. It is pretty hot here and I can take the leggings off to attempt to stay cool.

    R.M Willams boots (I'm from Australia and wear them all the time; they're super comfy) and I bought some Ariat half chaps today. I also bought some Dublin breeches and black helmet that's really lightweight and good for jumping. Queensland can get pretty sticky so I'm glad I got a lightweight helmet.

    Hi there! I was just wondering how you are going with your riding..? I am in a very similar situation to this and found it very comforting to read this thread x

    Glad you enjoyed your lesson! :) And even more glad you fell in love with a Thoroughbred.. they're amazing horses, aren't they? And if you get into jumping, they tend to be pretty awesome at that too!

    For boots, I always wear tall boots or paddock boots with half chaps. I like having something covering my entire calf for two reasons: 1. Stirrup leathers won't pinch, and 2. God forbid you hurt your leg, there is more stabilization (been there, done that unfortunately).

    Good luck getting back into riding! I rode for ten years as a child, but had to quit when I went to college. I finally got back into it when I was 26. Six months after starting lessons, I was leasing... next thing my poor husband knew, we added four hooves and a tail to the family. And he thought I would just be taking a lesson once a week. ;)
