No ma'am, gaiters are leather straps that go around the calves. Only youngsters are allowed to wear gaiters.

I've always heard it pronounced so that it rhymes with "beaches".

Personally, my breeches usually end at the top of my ankle. I wear short socks which usually end up going under them a little. Then I put my paddock boots on and put the velcro over them. Then I put my half chaps on.

I say britches.

My jods don't have the straps or elastic under them, as it annoys me. I use clips like these to wear them with paddock (short) boots.



The difference between jods and breeches is the length. You can't wear breeches with paddock boots unless you are willing to expose some leg or wear chaps.

I pulled my jods out of the laundry basket to show you the difference, so excuse how dirty they are.

Here's my jods. (ankle length)



And my breeches. (calf length)



For both I wear my socks under them, next to my skin. And actually for both I wear half chaps, although I don't need to with the jods.

Well this just confirms how ridiculously short I am.

All my breeches not only come to the bottom of my ankle, there's some fabric "leftover" still! I don't show any skin whatsoever when I wear them with paddock boots.

I wear only breeches, my trainer requires me to be in tall boots when I have lessons and this way all my riding pants are compatible with that. I put my socks over as they are slick and it's easier to get my boots on.

My breeches go all way down to the ankle. Never tried jods, but I don't need a strap anyway (I wear tall boots)..

Oh, mine too. I'm only 5'1" (and shrinking), and even the regular length breeches are far too long.

Just saying they're supposed to only come to mid calf.

Don't they come in varying lengths? I tend to wear the long length, I am not especially tall but my legs are much of my height.
