Question Hunt coat help?

So I have a hunt coat that I bought at the local tack swap. My mom decided that I was buying it :) (It was cheap) So I hadn't actually seen it until I got home. It seems really long.. (Im only 5'0) it goes about an inch past buy butt. My problem is that I don't know where it is actually SUPPOSED to come down to. Also, would half chaps be okay for 4-H shows? My calves are to short for tall boots.

Id like my show jackets to go only past my hips (in Australia) But I have noticed that overseas there are many trends that are different for your hunter showing :) To me it will be too long.... How are the sleeves on it? Are they too long also and interfere with your hands in any way?

Half chaps: Are they suede? I would never show in them, unless they are leather gaiters or the synthetic leather looking ones.

Hope this helped and good luck :)

The half chap thing might be an issue in 4-H I know it is here. Read your rule book and that should help. You can always buy regular huntseat boots and then have a shop repair place cut them down for you. My sister and I had to do that to our first pairs. :) hope this helps

Your coat sounds too long. Just take it to a tailor and they will be able to help you out. I personally would never show in half chaps. How old are you? You make still be able to get away with garters if your legs are short.

Im 13, so I don't think I could get away with straps. I have tried on 20+ tall boots & they all come up way to high. Even after I broke them in they would have been to tall. Plus money is an issue so I wont be able to have boots custom made. I think im going to take my hunt coat to my grandma & hopefully she doesn't butcher it.

Call around to your local shoe repair stores and see how much they will charge to cut down a pair of boots. It can't cost too much believe me my mom doesn't like to spend a lot of money at all especially with two riding ha.
