Anyone else in breeches and boots all day? What do you wear?
I've recently started a part-time, might-become-full-time job at the local riding school (teaching, riding, managing the horses etc), and need to expand my wardrobe.
I have a couple pairs the same that seems to be holding up okay, but want to know what else is out there. I prefer moderate rise, full seat (though I guess I could get away with some kind of no-seat tights if I was teaching only?), no crazy patterns or bright colours.
In terms of boots, my Ariat Brossard paddock boots seem to be doing well on cold/rainy days, but I've just about killed the old cheap chaps I was wearing with them, and I've definitely killed my ancient plain leather jodphurs boots I normally wear (with the chaps) on warm days.
So. Should I move to long boots instead of chaps/short boots? Is there a long boots that's comfortable to walk around in all day and will wear well? What do you wear? What works? What doesn't? Help!
