Jeans or Jodhpurs?

Which do you rather?
Or other long pants?

I personally prefer Jodphurs as they give me enough space and it is awkward mounting the stables horses with jean(jeans always seem to do that to me)

I find jeans to definitely be more restrictive than my breeches... and unless you are ultra particular about the ones you get, the inseam can really rub the heck out of your leg and your saddle!

It depends what I'm doing. If I'm planning on just going for a quiet hack I'll often just wear jeans, but if I'm going to do some schooling or jumping, I feel much more comfortable in jodpurs.

This is a GREAT thread!

Honestly, jeans DO have that inseam, I would love to see someone make jeans that are as comfortable to wear as they are to ride in. But I am a blue jean addict, has been my uniform for so long now. If I am goin for a long ride off property and ridin english, I wear the jodphers, but if I am ridin bareback, western, or just hackin around on the property, I am usually in jeans.

Jeans are my choice, but that is with all admittance to the drawbacks of ridin in them. When I ride in jodphers in the winter, I like chaps......

This would make a GREAT poll, too!

Well I usually only wear jeans but when im trail riding I refuse to wear jeans! You never know if you are going to come across a creek or some thing and wearing wet jeans sucks! So most the time I wear shorts or sweat pants on trail rides.

I wear jods. At pony trekking centres across the UK you will see signs saying 'Do NOT wear jeans', because so many inexperienced riders end up with blisters from the inseam.

I have seen stretchy-denim jods before.

I have never heard of Jods. My friends and I call them breeches.(are they the same thing?) I wear breeches when I'm in an english saddle, and jeans in a western. It would look silly for me to walk down the trail in a western saddle and breeches! :)
