I don't post much on here anymore for one reason and another, but as I know a few members were having the same trouble I was finding long boots to fit I thought I would let you know I have finally succeeded on the hunt-for-long-leather-riding-boots-for-chunky-calves front!!

I have huge calves (well huge everything really) - they are 18" :p

Now I've just received my pair of Tuffa Suffolk Broad long boots and they actually fit - I'd say with room to spare as well!! So for the first time ever I actually have some long leather riding boots!!

They were a really good price from that store as well, some places are selling them for nearer £150. Also, DH says they have the added bonus of having a touch of the "Lara Croft's" about them!! :rolleyes:

I have a wide calf and I've always found the Mountain Horse High riders a generous fit - I've recently bought some REquisite Toscana's - and tho they're standard fit, they do fit me comfortably.

Excellent! Thanks for sharing.

It's good to see you here again. How is TC getting on?

Thanks for asking :) - he's good, we have a lovely sharer who adores him and he is being spoiled by the both of us. I have a new horse too - King is a piebald Gypsy Cob and a bit more of a manageble size at 15.1HH!! Takes my little herd up to four now!!
