jod straps at shows

I'm mostly a western rider, but I want to start doing english at shows. I don't have tall boots anymore, and now have jods and half chaps, but not leather ones for shows. Would jod straps be okay for shows, even though im 13? Or should I try to get leather half chaps, since I can't use my suede ones?

It might depend on where you are, but around here the only ones who wear jods/straps are little kids on ponies! Like, 6 or 7 year olds... I would recommend half chaps!

I am in my second year of showing and in my first year I used jod straps but I found very inexpensive tall boots so I ride in those. They were only 70 some dollars.. but I would go with half chaps if I were you.

What is the usual price for half chaps? It's not like i'll be doing huge shows or anything. How do I know my size?

I'm 16 and I wear job clips, usually juniors (16 and under) wear jod boots, seniors wear gaitors :)

Well price depends on what brand, style, ect. You want. Leather ones are normally pretty expensive. And as for size you would have to try them on... different ones fit differently.. There are kid sizes and adult sizes. And the sizes are normally extra small, small, medium, large and extra large. If you are 13 then you will probably be in the adult sizes unless you have tiny calfs.

Moomoo- so I wouldn't even need jod straps? I could just use my jods, and jod clips?
