I wear a mix of jeans, breeches and joddy's. Usually jeans for trails or if they are already dirty, breeches for showing or lessons, joddy's for the paddock when I don't have pre-dirtied jeans haha.
I try to wear my jeans/joddy's a few times before I wash too to prolong the life of them. Plus I get pretty grubby when I am out with the horses so seems pointless to wear clean pants allll the time. As soon as I put their feet on my knees to pick them out I am dirtied :S
I find breeches and jeans just as comfy, but I wear slim fit stretch denims to ride in. I also think as part of respect for my riding instructors to dress the part if appropriate. Ie when I go for jumping and dressage lessons I dress appropriately. Breeches, tight polo shirt, tall boots, helmet, protective vest if needed etc I like to get the most out of my lessons and don't want my instructor to be distracted by loose distracting clothing or to turn up looking like a slob.
I guess I have blabbed here enough...;)
