    For me personally, the Pipers are a hair higher in the rise than the Trophy Hunters, but not significantly. Maybe there is an inch difference?

    They probably run a touch long but they fit me well, but I would say the length for me is maybe about 1-2" longer than my TS. They still fall above my ankle, but it is hard to tell with my socks on....

    I second a lot of people's suggestions of start out with some schooling shows to get her practiced at being off the property and jumping at an appropriate height for her training level. Did I miss a...

    I was going to suggest this. If you are a Smartpak customer you get 10% off and free shipping on sized items. They come to around $72. For the price I have yet to find a better schooling breech. ...

    A lot of suggestions I agree with (waterford, pelham etc). I would also do some reading up on the Myler bits, possibly the ones with hooks. They come in different levels, I use the Level 1 confort...

    Donatellos shredded my ankles, I got rid of mine.

    The new Tuffrider Regals are totally gorgeous and super soft leather, felt like half chaps when I tried them on.
