Thank you, guys! That was very interesting to read. I actually don't like to ride in jeans because I feel pretty confined in movement (the exception is leisure trail ride in western saddle), so I use the sport pants and older pants I have (they are funny, but still go strong) for the jumping lessons. I was curious if the actual breeches give a better grip as I want to buy a pair.
Mercedes, I'm not in any way a dressage rider (and don't think I'll be able to be a one ever due to my abilities
), but why it's so hard? Because the jeans are more stiff?
