Another thing I like about men's jeans. You can pick and choose your waist and inseam size to match instead of just taking what they've got. I wear a 30" waist and if I wanted, I could get a 30" inseam too (though that would be about 6" too short for me LOL).

Here's a thought. Buy a new, sturdy pair of jeans and make your own little full seat breeches out of them by having the leather work guy sew on some patches in that area. It'll give you added grip'em , too.
TinyLily, I ride in several different saddles. Sone are custom made, others are old Circle Y, I think I even ride in a Weaver saddle too. I don't think it is the saddle, per se. Some of it may be the way I ride.

My Ag teacher does know a really good leather worker. I actually want a pair of chinks custom made from him (and he is C-H-E-A-P!!!) I may have to look into that.

If his prices are that affordable, get me his information and I may order a pair of shotgun chaps from him this winter if he would be willing to ship them to me. I can't find anywhere that can make a pair to fit me and not cost me an arm, a leg, and my firstborn.

That would save me quite a bit of hassle. I'd just have to find the right style for my body type. I'm going to have to go to the mens section as well.

Maybe I will ahve to get some guys jeans for riding becasue my riding jeans and my school jeans are the jeans and let me tell you, its ackward as heck when you're trying to pull the fabric together between your crotch during a school day so you don't get yelled at for breaking the dress code. =P

Even the ladies Wranglers, like you'll find at a TSC, or other ranching store come in a size and a length. And a lot of them have different rise lengths as well. My biggest problem is that I can't seem to find the size I require in the length I need. Pretty much anything over size 12, it's hard to find the 36" inseam like I need. So I have to accept whatever rise height I can find. I really need to loose more weight, so I can get in a size 12!!!!!

As for the wholes, try riding in chaps or chinks. I have the same problem because my saddle is rough out leather over the jockey and fender, and it eats jeans like there is no tomorrow. I find that riding in a pair of training chaps helps a lot. I've also found that dry cleaning and having them use A LOT of starch helps as well. I guess you wouldn't have to do dry clean them, just iron them and use lots of starch.

I invested in 3 pairs of Wranglers and they were the BEST investment I've ever made. Wear and ride in them daily and they are showing NO signs of wear yet. I've had one pair over a year and they are still going strong. I would suggest looking into them, they are meant for hard work and riding and are affordable. I got mine from www.denimexpress.com

I also LOVE Vigoss jeans. They fit amazing, but I don't ride in the, they're my good jeans. Lol. And they're a bit on the expensive side. I bought a new pair a couple days ago. LOVE THEM!! They make my butt look AHHH-MAZING!!

For riding jeans I care less about the way the look and more about the way they fit. I like jeans that have a little higher waist for riding, lower rises tend to dig into my hips and don't hide the bulge when I'm sitting. LOL. And I like them looser through the thigh, but not loose enough that they will rub.

As for the holes. I'd keep patching my old jeans until I found a brand that I liked for riding in. They make jeans specifically for riding so I'd start there!
