Different makes of boot have slightly different calf widths so it may be a case of just trying on a few. You may find your calves get bigger with muscle when you are riding more anyhow :)

Long boots can be slightly less pratical than jodphur boots and chaps cz some are sweaty and some can be uncomfterbul when new which doesn't help any one ride well, experianced or completely new to the sport!

*Uncomfortable* lol :)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Welcome to the Forum, Baz!

I assume you are talking about english (and not western) by saying "tall". All I going to say tall boots are awesomely comfortable BUT good ones are very pricey. They are way better than paddock boots + chaps combination IMHO. However if you are short on money paddock boots could be a cheaper way to go. You can also look into boots on consignment (if you have any stores around). That's how I got mine.

Welcome to the forum!

I agree about the shorter boots and chaps, that's what I ride in, but if you had slightly loose long boots it would be ok.

Let us know how you get on.

Just wanted to say, Mauritius is absolutely beautiful! You're lucky to live there, though riding must get very hot! I don't recall seeing many horses there either...
