    I've only ever seen them in regular and long, Alex. Petite would be awesome for us short gals, but I don't think they make 'em.

    Ah I see. I've never had a reason to look for petite ones and so just assumed they were available as the long ones are.

    Just saying they're supposed to only come to mid calf.
    I actually prefer to have them long. Short ones feels awkward.

    I'm with you on this one. To me, gaiters are half chaps (though I generally only hear this term in a non-equestrian context like snow gaiters), garters are calf straps.

    Okay, if that's the difference between breeches & jods, I have both. Many pairs. I could probably open up my own store. My fav at the moment are the neon pink ones.

    This is kinda wierd :p

    I always wear my breeches all the way down to my ankle. More times than not, I'm wearing them with just paddock boots. Socks under, more comfy. I'm in USA, and don't know if it's diff. For Brits, but pretty much every American, and every one I know, wears their Breeches down to their ankles.

    XJumperx how tall are you?
    Unless you are shorter and they are just too long for you, then you are likely wearing jods not breeches.
