where to find tall boots with 19" calf!?
Right, I'm not a small rider by any means, and the longer I've been riding, the more my calves increase (muscle)
However I want to start showing soon and I cant show in just jodhpur boots, so I started looking for tall boots. However, all the wide fittings are like 16".

Has anyone got any suggestions as to where I can find some properly wide boots with a calf width of 19"?

Any help would be appreciated.
I cant afford to ge them made to measure really, my budget is about 130.

If I cant find any tall boots, can you show in jodhpur boots and half chaps? I'm in the UK/

I recently attempted to get my field boots on, I haven't shown hunt seat in 10 years...needless to say I don't have nearly as skinny legs now as I did then lol!

I took them to the leather shop and he cut notches out on the inside and replaced it with black elastic. Cost me $15 bucks and they are very comfortable!

my mom had a zipper put in hers when they got too tight.... it added some room, but i guess this isn't the best option for you. It would probably be too expensive to have them altered.
