    ^you can move your leg fine, it's not as sticky as you think. There's just more of a grip there.

    I didn't know that was possible. Breeches done have seams on the inside of the leg just for that purpose.....

    I use to wear jeans, I love riding in jeans, but my jeans were wearing out and jeans are kind expensive to replace, so I bought three pair of really cheap (20 bucks) full seat breeches and ride in them now. Much cheaper than a new pair of jeans!

    I always ride in breeches. They are designed for riding where as my jeans are not, and they fit the look better. It shows that someone is willing to spend the money and time to get more suited equipment for riding rather than just hopping on in whatever they happen to be wearing to me. I also don't want to rub up my legs or my saddles.

    I ride in breeches on a daily basis, and have never gotten rubbed by them because they are ment for riding all day every day....

    Jeans are really uncomfortable to ride in compared to breeches. I have schooling tights and then I have show breeches. The jeans rub on my skin and makes it uncomfortable and they have big seams in the wrong places.

    I personally have never had any problems with jeans. I find them more comfortable (the older worn ones anyway) that breeches or jodhpurs. I always practise in jeans with chaps. Shows are the only times I wear my jodhpurs, because I find the material uncomfortable (perhaps because I'm just so used to riding in jeans.

    The moment I started riding with jeans, I've never looked back.

    I use to wear breeches all the time,but I outgrew them and never got around to buying another pair,so jeans it is.I wear a straight leg jean that I have tucked inside my chaps and they're pretty comfy,but I'm hoping to buy a pair of breeches for this summer.Jeans cling to my leg in the heat here,and breeches are made of material that breathes better,plus I kind of miss wearing them.
