Wait until you ride in a pair of Pikeurs, you'll be saving pennies for their $300+ breeches! Devon-Aires are good quality and pretty inexpensive, I'm currently showing in DAs that I got for around $40.

As a side note, make sure your saddle still fits him. If it's been a year since he's worn it, chances are he has changed shape and will need to be re-checked to make sure it's not pinching anywhere.

Thanks for all the great advice guys! And luckily for me I got the saddle when he was 6, so all the major growing and changes he's done has plateaued for now. I dusted off the saddle - literally! - yesterday and tried everything on. It seems okay, and he is his usually willing self in saddle.

I'm going to make another trek over and spend some time trying them on. Thanks for the great pointers too! I don't think I would have considered things like the seams before lol.

Those numbers are the size of your waist, and the 'L' probably means long. However, you don't necessarily need fancy breeches just yet if you're just starting to ride English! I get by in just jeans and a pair of half chaps.

The cost is all relative, I mean as to whether you view it as excessive and a burden.

I buy a latte every day. It costs like 3$ or more. Add that up and it's a lot! But, I adore my coffee, so I don't mind the cost.
But, I grouse about the cost of something like milk, or gas.

Anyway, Kerrits makes some really nice boot cut breeches/pants that you can wear out, over paddock boots or regular shoes. They are very flattering. When riding/showing , use half chaps with these breeches and paddock boots and you're good to go.

In general, if you get quality, you only have to buy it once. Cheap needs to be replaced and in the long run is rarely a good deal.

I really like my On Course tights and my Tuff Rider breeches. Both were relatively inexpensive and they've held up well. On Course has a cottony feel to them, almost like yoga pants. They sit relatively low and are really great for schooling or for a small show. My Tuff Rider breeches are also very nice - mine have the Aerocool in them, which is a little more expensive but well worth it if you are showing in the heat. They've held up well, fit nice, and look nice in the show ring.

Every breech is going to fit different - trust me. I'm a size 0 in jeans and I almost had to go down to child's sizes in breeches because everything was too loose in the waist. Different brands have different measurements, so use the size as an estimate. I was lucky enough to buy my Tuff Riders online and have them fit!

Happy showing and shopping!
