    Lol havent tried jumping in a western yet, but I wear my short blundstones when riding so I don't have the problem of tucking the jeans in or not. But my dad just has his jeans over the top of his boots.

    Wel yeah you can jump a log or 2 out on the trail...its really fun but you also have to remember not to jump too high -----1) you;ll hit you stomach on the horn(yeah ouch!!) and 2) it will hurt your horse, the western saddle is not designed to move like an english one.

    Boots------i just leave mine alone....everyone was worried about getting their boots and jeans muddy and honestly I don't care.i don't wear school clothes to the baren so I get as dirty as I can.as long as you have high boots and boot cut jeans ur good to go.you should not have a problem with getting mudd in your boots.

    Not speaking from experience.....but,

    My trainer was with a woman on a trail ride several years ago who jumped something in the path and ended up with the horn of her western saddle jammed up underneath the bottom tip of her sternum. She rode home bent over, attached to her saddle and had the ambulance waiting for her.

    Ouch! I will never plan on jumping in a western saddle!

    I've jumped little things on the trail, a log, a creek. I wouldnt even think of doing anything big.
    I roll my pants up if its muddy. Guess that's a redneck girly thing I've seen guys who stick the inside of their pant leg into their boot and leave the outside out Never have figured that one out. I just figure their goat ropers

    They only have jumping as an event in English riding, but you can jump in a western saddle. Just don't let the horn impale you. I actually think it's a good idea to be able to jump in a western saddle. I've done it a couple of times and it comes in handy when your out on the trails.

    As for the boots... I don't tuck mine in unless it's the winter. I live in Washington on the west coast and the rain creates tons of mud so I tuck them in when it's been raining. Otherwise I just keep them out.
