i use breeches in the fall and winter-found some cool clam diggers that have no seam on inside and cover me to the tops of my boots
i sure stick in the saddlebetter with breeches.

I used to ride in jeans all the time but when I got a pair of cotton breeches, I couldn't stop using them they were soooo comfortable!! But on occasion I wear jeans with my half chaps while riding.

I used to have a pair of black breeches that I wore every time I went to the stables (I went Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays), but I quickly outgrew them. I never rebought some. Though, I'd like some tan ones for shows in the future (it'd be nice to show in something this spring).

I almost am always wearing jeans anyways... so why not in the saddle too?

Yeah, breeches are comfy. I have to admit!

Ride more, worry less.

I used to wear jeans and half chaps when I was riding, but my trainer convinced me to switch to breeches. I think they improve my riding, but maybe that's just me...

what are breeches? sorry for sounding stupid. Are they like jodphurs? Made of lycra and kinda like leggings... not exactly the same as leggings but similar.

Google suggests that there's no difference in fabric, just that breeches end beneath the knee and must be warn with tall boots.

I wear jods and half chaps when training, then breeches and top boots at shows.

I'm a jeans and half chaps kind of girl. I don't do a whole lot of showing right now anyways, but they're the most comfortable to me.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
