    I can't seem to find a picture of the bottoms of romfh breeches. Can anyone describe their version of a sock bottom? Do they have elastic at the bottom?

    Do these breeches exist?

    I'm pretty picky about breeches and I can't seem to find quite what I want, so I'm hoping someone here can point me in a new direction.

    Here's what I'm looking for: Must haves: sock bottom,...

    The regular children's front zip jodhpurs mostly marketed for girls should be fine, but be aware that the ones specifically for boys are a little different in that they have back pockets.

    I agree with Posting Trot. It sounds like a double-jointed happy mouth bit might be perfect for your horse. Even just a metal double-jointed bit with a lozenge in the middle might work well. If you...

    Butet would be my first choice. And older models often pretty reasonable priced.

    Baring that, I second the Ashland recommendation. The beval natural is another option.

    I used to have the same problem whenever someone told to me to "wait for the jump to come to you." What helps me is to think about riding *to* the jump with my leg and seat, but *waiting* for the...
