breeches vs jodhpurs?
Just wondering what the difference is? As far as I can tell I've heard the two terms used interchangably so is there a difference?

Breeches are generally liworn under boots or half chaps, jodhpurs are worn over boots/chaps. Usually by kids or people who ride gaited horses.

Thank you! now i understand why my breeches are so short, I've been wearing tall winter boots all winter but i guess i need to get some half chaps now to go with my short boots.... a couple inches of bare leg between my boot and my breeches is doing nothing good for me!
