Breeches, breeches breeches...

Hey there. So...I was just wondering what kind of brand of breeches you prefer/dislike/recommend. Also if there is a price which is too cheap or too expensive. I got a pair of tuffrider breeches for christmas today and I don't really care how nice they are or anything since well theyre breeches, they do the thing and if I were to show id get new ones you know? Just any comment please(:

I looooove love LOVE Equine Couture breeches. They fit me amazingly well. I have a tan sportif pair for schooling and showing, and Im ordering their denim/jean version to school in.

Their fabric/material is thicker than a lot of breeches out there, so theres no lines underneath and they are more durable. As for their pricing, its a little more on the higher end I suppose. Most are at $70 on their site, but if you find them in stores or on other stores you can get them for as low as $50 if your lucky. But remember, you get what you pay for. I bought my first breeches for $40 and the seams started tearing and the stitches came out around the knee patch after two rides.

I've found breeches/jodphurs to be one of those things you have to try on. I've spent hours trying on pairs in my local store, finding a pair I like and then buying multiples online once I've found a pair that I love. Ebay is good for cheap pairs once you've found what you like too :)

Btw, don't get Annie Riders. Remember those pair the zipper broke before I put them on at fair this year? Yeah. Those were Annie Riders. They're the bottom of the market and they suck.

Breeches arnt marked "show" or "schooling". Some companies call some breeches schooling when they don't carry them in traditional colors, and some call them show breeches when they only come in white, tan, etc.

So as long as they're clean, good quality, right color, etc, then you can show in them.

I feel comfortable in very few breeches. The most comfortable (for ME ): Dover Saddlery | Devon-AireŽ Versailles Riding Breeches.
