Normally no but it depends on what the rest of the day is like and what I was doing prior to going out to ride :)

I used to always wear jeans in the summer, and sweats& snowpants in the winter. My winter attire has not changed, but I have been coming around to breeches in the summer. I simply happened because, at shows, I would take off my boots and put on comfy shoes, but not take off my breeches because they are so comfy..I am thinking I will be ordering some cute training breeches in the spring for practice.

I wear snug jeans. Them are solid and the denim is rough enough so it helps me to keep the balance.

With jeans, in the summertime I wear rubber riding boots and in the wintertime half chaps with safety shoes.

I wear jodhpurs before that I use to wear track suit trousers...yes! Because I didn't have jodhpurs then.

As far as jeans is concern my trainer and the equestrian centre people advised not to wear jeans so I didn't.

I don't know much difference between the two (while riding as I never tried jeans while riding) however I would say jodhpurs are much more flexible and easy when riding (atleast I found that).

My favorite combinations are tall boots + breeches and jodhs + half chaps. I also have worn jodhs + full chaps, shorts + full chaps, and jeans + half chaps, but I don't like those options as much.
