    It seems really high to me - at my old barn, I was paying $400 for one lesson and one hack a week, and no horse fee for shows. My current barn runs between 450-500, depending on the horse, for TWO...

    I have a JR8, and got a Tipp Sportage for the summer after nearly passing out in the CO. I'm not 100% long oval, but I am more oval than round, and the Sportage fits wonderfully.

    Yeah, I'd definitely ask around - we went to a little local schooling show this past weekend. There were maybe 4-5 barns there, and we all wore show shirts and jackets.

    And, if you can, try on as many breeches as you can - if you're not comfortable in what you buy, you're not going to ride as well as you can. Ask at the tack shop what they'd...

    I found Hanes beige ones on amazon - 2 pack for $10! But I have no boobs so they're more of the barely-there type than a sports-sports bra!
