I posted already in the dressage section, but I wanted to ask here as well in case it is different.

What is the ideal length for a dressage coat? Mid-way down the buttocks? Bottom of the buttocks?

And additionally, until what level is it acceptable to jump in my dressage coat? How long should a coat for the jumping be?

I have show jumped through intermediate in my Pikeur dressage coat (of course at that level, my jumping was probably scary enough that no one was looking at my coat :lol:), but have done many seasons at preliminary in that coat and like the way it feels to jump in. I like a coat that falls to where your chair seat would be if sitting in a hard chair, then I don't feel I am sitting on it when I ride.
