If I showed up in those my trainer would probably have a heart attack and die on the spot!

She had a fit when I had a *gasp* PURPLE saddle pad at a lesson and it was a dark royal purple!

Oh sh1t they are pink!

And no they would be jods as they reach the ankle. Breeches reach the calf.

So if we are tall, they are breeches.
If we are short, they are jodhpurs?

Nope, I think I am a little more than average height. Normal breeches are calf length on me, normal jods just short of ankle length, so I wear a long.

Jods = ankle length
Breeches = calf length.

Hehe, I think my coach would too. These pinkies are for riding at home only, oh and on the trail, bright colors, better seen by others, right?

I don't own a set of breaches (breech not britch) yet lol. I wear 'schooling tights' because I am afraid of spending the money on breaches that don't properly fit my non existent butt and stick legs. But my schooling tights are just that, thick tights made of sweat wicking material with the suede knee pads. I wear them over my long nylon socks in my tall boots. And they are between calf and ankle length, so I am not sure what they qualify as. They stay in place even when I am walking around in them without my tall boots, because of the stretchy material, so they never ride up. They feel like really comfy pajamas. They are not ideal for showing, but for barn work, lessons, and schooling (even trail riding) they are great. I wear mine several times a week and they haven't torn up on me yet. I have them in dark grey and tan. They're awesome in the winter too, to layer under jeans.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

So I'm 5'8" with just under a 34" inseam and my breeches reach my ankle. Are those still breeches? I just bought them and they said schooling breeches right on the label. I think I would prefer them mid-calf but everything goes to my ankle. All the jods in the store have a flared leg. Or well the ones labeled jods.

Guess I've never owned a pair of breeches in my life then, only jods, if the only difference is length.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office
