    I've never worn jeans while riding, but I imagine getting my half chaps on would be a NIGHTMARE, and it's already obnoxious enough as it is. XD All my jeans flare out at the bottom, so I'd have to fold it over, and I've lost some weight, so my jeans are baggier...

    I'd rather not deal with all that, lol. XP

    I love my jods and breeches, but I'm out at the barn too much and I don't have enough pairs to satisfy every time. So, nine times out of ten, I wear my jeans to the barn and save my jods for the shows. I learned to ride in a very low-key barn, and they all rode Western except for myself and another girl, so we all wore jeans most of the time, and it just became habit, mostly.

    I don't mind riding in jeans.

    I find jods really comfortable becuase of the way they fit - the seams are obviously made for riding, but also there are no random bits of fabric to get bunched up or caught or twisted. It's just ... easier to move in them. For example, I'm wearing jeans right now, and if I cross one leg over the other the fabric moves and bunches along the inseam and where leg meets hip. I don't get that in jodhpurs.

    I only own two pairs of jods, but the people I know who ride every day and all have loads. They have good pairs and casual pairs that get worn for mucking out and casual riding and end up filthy xD I have a pair of navy and blue jodhpurs, which are nice, and a pair of pink-white-green-blue-orange candy-coloured pinstripe ones which everyone admires

    I prefer jods, but I always go to riding directly from school and I don't have much time to change if I want to make it to the barn on time. If I'm wearing jeans to school, it's easier just to keep them on and not change before riding. I only wear jods when I have gym at school and have to wear sweatpants... in that case, there's no point in changing into jeans when changing into jods takes just as long.

    Well I have a pair of the most comfy "barn jeans" - they are a little stretchy in the material which makes all the difference! But in the spring/summer I'll prob go back to my breeches again!

    When I'm going on a trail ride or riding bareback I usually wear jeans.But, when I'm at lessons,shows or working seriously working my horse I wear my jods.Usually I will end up wearing my jods atleast 5 days a week and jeans once when riding.
    Basically I ♥♥♥ my jods!

    Jods are awesome. Yesterday I had my lesson and they were so comfortable. They are a dark blue- black colour. Several people admired them and asked where I got them from ^^

    I have a few pairs of jods and riding tights. I find them most comfortable for riding.
