Plus the leather boots aren't cheap btw :( hope you can help me gorgeous, Thanks :)

Hey there! Did ya know that I have this same problem too? My boots have been too short for years. Honestly, it’s something that’s never bothered me. I’m there to ride, not care about other people’s opinions. But, my view may be a little skewed because I’m an eventer and what you wear and how you look doesn’t matter quite as much.

But anyway, I did some googling for ya and I found this thread on Chronicle of the Horse. Apparently many people have gotten cuffs added to the tops of their boots to make them taller!

Horses are expensive.

Maybe I’d be rich without them.

But my heart would be poor.

Hey there! For hunt seat, judges normally look for quiet riders, meaning immobile legs and hands. They also like your leg to be underneath you, and a quiet flat back. The biggest difference for me was keeping my feet absolutely still in the sitting trot. It’s not easy! Anyway, for a flat class the judge will ask you to walk, trot, and canter, as well as canter to walk or walk to canter. Same with walk to trot. It really depends on what level you’re in. You may also be asked to go into jump position, sit the trot, reverse at the walk, and halt. And depending on the level, you may have to do no stirrup work! But it’s not that bad because you’re only riding for 10 minutes. At the end of the class they ask you to line up facing the judge and then they’ll place you right there in the ring.

Hope this helps!
