Hi All. So I'm a male in my mid 20's who has been taking one hour private lessons at a hunter / jumper barn for a couple months now and have really enjoyed the experience. That said I have been experiencing some discomfort / chafing in my calves. I currently ride in cotton pants with tall riding socks and paddock boots (and helmet of course) and was thinking about the idea of investing in breeches and tall riding (field) boots. I know Ariat have a good selection for men and was considering skipping chaps and buying pair, however, I don't know whether it's too early to invest. I also don't want to seem like a "poser" for investing in a pair so early. I don't see myself stopping anytime at all (in-fact will be looking to ride more frequently) and would actually consider competing when I get to an appropriate level. What do you all think? Would love to get your thoughts.
