You know, I hadn't started wearing jeans until a while ago. I figure I look really fat in breeches and try to stay away from them unless I am showing/in a lesson.
I had ridden in jeans because I had an unexpected riding lesson on Monday, and after I was changing into pajamas and noticed my inner thighs had bled. I didn't feel anything, but I think riding in jeans is catching up to me.
Beginners should ride in breeches, yes. It's good to get used to the feeling of them.
