I'm 5ft 9 and I'm having real trouble finding comfortable competition breeches.

I find that I have to pull most pairs right up to the bottom of my hip...then the velcro round the bottom is just under my knee and digs into the top of my riding boots...then they spin round and I end up with rubs on my knee against the saddle!

Help! Anyone got any suggestions.

Pikeur all the way - pricey but a good cut, wash really well and fit us tall girls really well - I am 6'2 flat foot, so if they fit me they should easily fit you!

I'm 5'11 (just about!) and the 'long' versions are perfect

Second that, I like the toggi breeches and have a very log inside leg.

Pikeur or Cavallo all the way. I'm not quite as tall as you but I have really long legs - and they are fantastic

Just make sure that you get the 'long' ones if you go for Pikeur or Cavallo.

They are lovely breeches and worth every penny but I'm 5'7 and the regular ones are too short!!

I only wear long Pikeur breeches, worth every penny! I have 2 pairs of the denim ones (one is high waisted and I wish I had bought the others high waisted too as the 3 button design makes you sit up!) and I have white ones for competing.

ETS I wear jods for hunting, Gorringe ones as they are the most comfy for long days in the saddle!
