    Skinnies?

    Currently I have riding tights, and they're okay, but I get frustrated having to constantly pull them up. I just really don't like them. I can't afford to get other breeches just yet, but I have a pair of extra long, pretty broken in skinny jeans and was wondering whether anyone here rides English with skinnies? I have chaps and like I said the jeans are really long, so I was thinking it might work as a temporary solution, but my mom thinks it'll be too uncomfortable/stiff. I posted it in the English section because, obviously, riding Western with jeans is not a problem :) Thanks!

    Oh yeah, and they're not low rise, so mooning people won't be a problem lol :)

    Haha I rode bareback and bridleless on my thoroughbred in my not-stretchy brand new $50 skinny jeans the other day so I think you'll be fine. Just so long as they have a little give in them, don't wanna split the crotch when you mount :S haha.

    Also, many people on the horse camp I went to a few years ago rode all day long in jeans and were fine, but when they get wet and you ride boy do they rub >.<

    I ride in skinnies all the time with my gaitors over them and haven't had a problem.
    I just pull them up before I get on and pull them up at the knees a little so they're not so tight on my knees and I'm good to go

    Cool, thanks! I have a slight jean obsession and they're what I'm most comfortable in otherwise, so I'm glad you all don't find riding in them uncomfortable. I'll try them out at my lesson today and see how it goes. Also, luckily no wetness here :P Rainy season is on its way out, so that should be fine too.

    I rode in skinny jeans for like, two years. I never had any problems.

    Of course...then I got my first pair of breeches and I haven't even thought of returning to jeans, hahaha

    I really dislike riding in non-riding jeans as the seam is in an.....uh....uncomfortable spot.

    I ride in normal jeans all the time so I can not see any reason to not ride in skinny jeans if you have a body that you do not scare those around if you put them on.

    Same LOL I actually love and perfer to ride in jean, especially skinnys because they fit better into my boots, then my breeches or sweat pants. I think they just feel more comfortable.

    OMW I have been missing so much. I am in love with riding with my jeans. If I could marry Riding In My Jeans, I would. Plus they're much much cheaper than breeches, which is great. *sigh* I am in my happy place. I seriously don't think I've ever been that comfortable riding...

    *goes on to gush about riding in jeans to kitteh so she doesn't bore the nice forum people*

    I thought this would bother me, but for some reason it didn't...I only ride for an hour at a time, though, so maybe that's why :)

    Well...I can only hope. At least I didn't plumber-butt them, whatever else might have happened lol.

    I'm with you there. I also feel like I didn't sweat as much, which makes no sense but I'll go with it. No complaints here...
