You might want to look for some chaps to go with your short boots, they protect your legs from the stirrup leathers. Or thick long socks over your jods will help.

Look up chaps on some of the saddlery sites such as Naylors. The short boots will help with flexibility, the chaps or thick socks are to protect your legs from the stirrup leathers.

I definitely second the idea of getting half chaps to go with your jodhpur boots when you can. I still can't ride without them as my legs just get too sore & bruised from the stirrup leathers.

What hat did you go for? I miss having a jockey skull as you got to choose & change hat covers when you fancy, so will be jealous if you have one :)

2nd the chaps with short boots. Some people are lucky and the stirrup leathers don't pinch through your jodphurs. They did with me. I also get black bruises on the inside of my legs where they pinch and knock against the leathers. I ride in long country boots so legs are protected. But in summer I do like jod boots and chaps as it's cooler than country boots.

If you do find you need some RayRay (and I suspect like everybody else that you will!) pm me your calf measurement and the measurement from behind your knee to roughly your ankle height - I have some really nice chaps left from old stock that I am almost giving away as I have a lot of new stock coming in - postage to the Uk only €7 (about £6 sterling) if i can sort something out in your size for you I will. :) (y)

Would I be able to get in on this chap 'give away'?? :D I would be a small size, I could send you measurements later on. I live in Ireland too by the way! Let me know if you see this!

Definitely agree on chaps (half-chaps, if you are confused - not the ones cowboys wear) with jodhpurs and jod boots.

Congratulations on the rest of your kit! It's a real milestone as a rider when you get your own hat and jods.

Actually sorry it wont let me PM you, when I click on your profile its private or something.. I will just write measurements here and maybe you can attempt to PM me if it works!

Height in cm from ankle to knee cap: 40cm, width of calf: 35cm. If you have anything suitable would you also send a pic if possible? :)

How odd - I had no idea I was set at private I must alter that - very antisocial of me! :D Unfortunately most of the adult sizes in the ones I am selling off have now gone - nothing that would fit you I dont think.....I do have some lovely calf skin black leather ones in your size but they are €25 but 10% off in the sale just now so just €22.50?
