i wear jeans all the time anyway and have never worn jods or breeches or whatever
that whole inseam thing, that has never happened to me....the only time i got blisters from riding was when i rode in shorts one time....

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.

I ride in both, but mostly jeans. I have a pair of Levi's (501, I think) that are perfect for riding. In fact, I got them at a tack store and they are very durable. They have a tapered leg that makes putting my half chaps on a breeze.

I also like to ride in breeches but the only two pairs I have right now are my show breeches and they weren't cheap so I'm trying to keep them nice. I have started to ride in them more with my tall boots so I can get used to the feel before show season.

I ride in joddies, always. I used to ride in jeans, but then every pair I rode in eventually split on the inner thigh... I got sick of having to buy new jeans!!

joddies over here are very low-tech compared to what you guys have in the states. Thick material and very restrictive. I boguht a few pairs of joddies (riding tights?) Made of a spandex-ish material (kerrits brand) When I was iver there, and they are my favourite by far. Especially for mounted games!

I ride in breeches. I find jeans really restrictive. Anda ll of my jeans are low rise aswell, and I am so tall the my hips are a lot higher up than normal people so they slip down when I bend over. I don't want the look like a plumber while jumping haha. And the gromets on the back pockets dig into the saddle and scratches them up.

I only own 1 pair of jods, and I only wear them during winter UNDER my jeans... And most of the time I just wear long john's under my jeans instead of jods... lol.

I wear jeans more often than not... I haven't worn shorts in four or five years now... If I go swimming with a horse, I'm in jeans... Lol.

The skin tight jeans are VERY comfortable to ride in, but I'll ride in the looser jeans too. The only time the inseam of jeans has ever bothered me is when the jeans in question are getting so thin from being worn all the time... When that happens, I throw them out and go on to the next pair, lol.

Jodphurs are really comfortable. They aren't annoying at all :)
