I know a lot of dressage riders use full seat, but I ride a very... um, fussy Haflinger in hunters and flat classes. She is very green and I had a lesson today that would make me seem like an extreme beginner on a hot horse for someone who doesn't't know our situation. She was running sideways, tossing her head, threatening to rear, you get the picture. I have developed a great seat, but was just wondering if full-seaters would give me better grip with her. She is very short strides and bumpy at the canter and I know my seat must look awful! Would these breeches be acceptable in smaller hunter and equitation schooling shows, some jumpers, and pleasure/hunter flat classes at flat shows (even though she doesn't perform like a pleasure)? And do they really help? Thank you!
Also any recommended low-priced brands or anything to steer clear of?
