Jods is just a nickname for jodhpurs. I'm not sure what the differences are between breeches and jodhpurs, but everyone I know rides in jodhpurs.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Jeans that are specifically designed for riding do not have the extra material on the inseam. Check out Wranglers

haha lol. I have a really cool pair of jodphurs for my horse riding lesson. They take forever to get on because they are so long but they look really good on me. They are also very good when riding.
I wore jeans three weeks ago to my horse riding lesson(didn't have jod's yet) and they were very uncomfortable to get onto the horse. I did get onto the horse, but jod make it much easier for me :)

P.S. I wanted to make this a poll but couldn't find where to make a poll...

I wear both. Depends on what I feel like or what is clean, or at least wearable clean haha.

Difference between jodhpurs and breeches... joddy's go all the way to the ankle and are made to sit over the top of a short boot/paddock boot. Breeches are shorter, either to the bottom of the knee or half way down the calf and are made to be worn under tall boots.

For lessons I usually wear my breeches. But sometimes I'll be lazy & just wear jeans, haha.

Ride more, worry less.

I LOVE riding in my jods way better than jeans. One thing i dont like about the jods is that if i have not shaved and my legs in like 2 days they are prickly and that it hurts my legs when i am riding:(
