As some of you know I am a beginner and just started English riding lessons. I am feeling a touch of insecurity because I do not own TOP quality riding equip to my lessons. So I need some help in what to request to friends and family for birthday gifts to help me get long-lived riding equip to keep me safe, trendy, and to have better quality equip while being light on my wallet (and others wallets :) )
Here is what I have so far..
Saxon Equileather Paddock Boots - doversaddlery.com
Mcalister Washable Half Chaps - ebay.com (cost me around $10)
Back support thingy (sports authority $25)
Riding Gloves w/ pebble palm in black - eBay.com ($8)
Yoga leggings lol..
And whatever black shirt I can find that fits well.
I borrow a helmet from the BO's stash.
Sooo I have a few things that I am considering asking for my bday. I would like to have your input on them! Or if you can find a better alternative, feel free to post it :)
Paddock Boots: (if mine aren't up to par..so far they are fine!)
Riding Crop: (is it wise to buy one for yourself?)
I am planning on going to the nearest feed and supply store to try on some breeches. But I know that I will need shapely full seat breeches. I think, according to the size charts, that I am a 36. But I would rather not take my chances guessing.
Hope to get some good advice! :)
