    Hello!

    Can anyone recommend any (preferably not too expensive) good summer jodhpurs? I get so boiling hot and would really like to find some nice lightweight cotton jodhpurs to help keep as cool as possible! :)

    Thanks in advance

    Saxon jods are fab. £12-14 for a pair of adult jods. i love mine, but my latest pair got torn to shreds so i'm having to endure my thick harry hall ones til i get a chance to order more saxon ones!

    or you could throw caution/fashion to the wind and ride in dodgy shorts with halfchaps, ahem. there is a bit of knee exposed in the process though (very airy!)! and be sure to NOT forget the chaps like i did the other day .... my legs promptly had an unpleasant run-in with stinging nettles and a raspberry bush and are now covered in scratches ...

    Ooh Julia that sounds hilarious!!! If not necessarily fashionable... :p

    I like the idea of the breeze on my knees (I'm rhyming now...) but not sure if I can face it.....!!

    I need a new pair of summer jods now as on Saturday mum decided to wash me beige jods with some new (therefore leaching dye) black chaps. :eek: The jods are now a disgusting grey'y purple colour! :D

    The only Saxon ones I can find seem to be the 'Warm-up' ones :eek: These cant be the ones can they? I really need/want some cool summer jods.
