Good quality breeches and boots?
 
Hi, does anyone know what brands of tall boots and breeches are good quality but a reasonable price?

Pikeur breeches are very reliable and long lasting. If you are over 17 and not planning to gain weight you should definitely get a pair in either safari or Sahara color.
Jumpers (hunters) wear field boots. If your feet don't grow anymore you should really try Veredus Guanieri. Reason being these boots have adjustable calves. So if you gain muscle or put on weight or wearing thicker socks in winter you don't need to worry about getting new ones. They also break in easily.
There is a really good British website that supply both. Amira Equi.
I am very picky about my breeches and boots because they really affect your riding. The rest are not really important. Don't spend on expensive helmet because you need to replace it after twice of three times of bad falls.

For what sort of riding? What discipline, and for showing or just for pleasure? If you show that can limit the options a little bit- color and appearance are much more important then!

Kerrits is my favorite brand for showing and schooling, but they're not necessarily inexpensive. My full seat show pants run about $100 new, but their riding tights are much more affordable. Super soft, stretchy, and cool. Dover is having a sale on them, so they're available for $40/pair http://www.doversaddlery.com/kerrits...hts/p/PC-5374/

Or the low rise:

They don't have belt loops and aren't really appropriate for showing, but perfect for schooling! As far as tall boots go, I can't help you too much. Mine were an expensive gift from my parents :?
