I have been riding for about 5 years now, and only stand about 5 feet tall. Ive always taken lessons at a barn, but now ive been training by boyfriends mare. Weve worked for about 5 months, and shes doing great!!! bf's mom bought me a showcoat and everything, and im going to a 4H show in a couple weeks. Ive showed in our county fair, but its now big and its just for fun. This one has about 50 horses and is so much more ritzier. I cannot find tall boots I can wear, its impossible. No one around my town or county does shoe repairs to get them cut down. They are too big in heigh and width, im only 85 punds and have stick legs. can I show in short riding boots, or is there another, better solution. Thanks for your help!
