Seeing the pleasure I've had from starting to ride again this year after a long gap my husband has decided to follow suit, and has booked to go with me on a 4 day break in Cumbria in the early summer. he will begin to have some lessons after Christmas. We sold our horses 20 years ago and as his was a bit of a nutter who he controlled admirably I'm sure he will soon be enjoying it again. He has been muttering about some long leather boots for Christmas but I have explained to him most people seem to wear short boots and half chaps these days, which are more versatile. I would like to get him something nice, but not ruinously expensive any suggestions? It will be mainly for hacking and possibly informal cross country.
