Do you have trouble finding long boots or half chaps?

My calves are huge, even when I am at a 'normal' sort of weight I still take xw in boots etc, so when I am overweight I usually have no hope, I get excited when I see something listed as XXW then could throw something when I see that these HUGE widths are like 17"

Fuller Fillies are the usual go to for boots and chaps but I've even been struggling with their sizing recently, but now they are trialling a proper x wide half chap, being able to stretch to accommodate up to 23"

They are only being sold through their UK outlet at present Tackanory > Fuller Fillies Huggy 'Supersize' Leather Half Chap but if you need legwear up to this size, even if you don't want to buy now, could you feedback to them that this size in a boot is needed

Thanks for reading, and please start feeding back what it is that you need to let you ride dressed properly and comfortably.

I had some serious knee surgery about 14 years ago. I had to have a faciatami (don't know if spelled right) and ever since my left calf is much, much bigger than my right! I have a terrible time finding high boots for me. I am a larger person anyway and wow does it make it tough.

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

I have the x wide chaps and the show boots but they only just fit, so and xxwide would be very welcome for some ladies I think.

Fuller fillies is the first time I have been able to have riding wear to fit. Up until there range came on the market I couldn't fit in chaps full stop, just wore jodphur boots . So at my first show last year I felt super smart to have jackets, shirts and boots that fit me. I came second in the best turned out which I was super pleased with :)

Folks, what about Mt Horse? I'm not the skinniest down there (khmmmmm....), Mt Horse seems to fit though (their wide version).

Mountain Horse is I think a great option for the blessed of leg, but for the over blessed, then they just wont do.

Luckily, Mt. Horse works for me, too, and I really like them.
