I live in a hot humid zone and while I do trail ride in jeans, I am not confortable in them. I just bought a pair of Kerrits riding tights and am excited about riding in those. I actually ride in shorts a good bit when at home

It was also suggested to me, to look into Irideons and Tropical Rider tights.

I ride in.... Crap. Can't remember the brand, but they are uncomfortable to ride in. They are riding jeans too. Supposed to be stretchy and all, but they lie! Get a pair of riding tights or breeches and save yourself the trouble. Seriously.

I live in GA and it is hot and humid to all ends, and I ride in riding tights/breeches more often than jeans. Jeans just get hot and itchy and chafey and basically, as joe said, blow chunks, lol.
You can probably find a cheaper pair at a local tack store (you may have to go english tack)

I go to the thrift store and buy the softest lightest worn out jeans I can find. It's hot here, but with the cactus and thorny trees, you are better off riding in pants. I go cheap because my jeans and shirts are frequently getting torn on said plants.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I can't even think of the last time I rode in jeans (unless backing my greenie for 5 minutes yesterday in jean shorts counts.. but we didn't move, just stood!).

I ride in tights. Wouldn't want to test them on too many serious thorns, but they do ok with our stickerbushes (much better than my arms do!).


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

I just bought a pair of Tropical Rider lightweight summer breeches. They worked great for me. I rode in jeans for years, and for years I put up with those awful seams assaulting my anatomy. Life is too short to wear uncomfortable clothes while enjoying your hobby.

Bought a pair of underarmour tights and I love them. Haven't ridden more then twenty miles in them, but so much better than jeans
