Jeans and tall boots?

Does anybody ever wear jeans and tall boots? I want to be able to wear my tall boots but I go to the barn directly from school and don't have time to change from my jeans into my britches. So I was wondering who has ever done this before, and how does it work out? Comfy? XD

I have worn my jeans, paddock boots, and half chaps, but never have I put on tall boots. It may be comfortable for may not be. Try it out.

I've ridden in jeans and tall boots (mind you they were not all that great), for me it hurt a bit around my ankles, I guess where my pants would bunch up a bit. It mostly rubbed more then anything.

On the other hand, I've also ridden in jeans, half chaps, and shoes (shh!!!!! It's such a bad habbit), that doesn't bother me at all lol. It's kinda odd really.

No, I think it looks ******ed and I won't do it. Try wearing breeches underneath your jeans, then just pull your jeans off.

I can't see how it would be comfortable, either, unless your jeans are super tight, but then they wouldn't be comfortable.

Hey there toots -

I haven't worn jeans and tall boots together - but then again, I don't wear jeans when I ride either.

You don't have time at all, to run into the washroom and change? Could you change in the vehicle on your way to the barn?

If not, I would go with jeans and paddock boots n 1/2 chaps.

The issue with tall boots and jeans is that when you put on your tall boots - the jeans will bulk/bunch up - and make it uncomfortable for you. Tights, stay put and allow the boots to slide on and off with ease - jeans, not so much.

I can see it work if you have tight jeans and zip up tall boots - but pull on's might be an issue.

On the other hand, I've also ridden in jeans, half chaps, and shoes (shh!!!!! It's such a bad habbit), that doesn't bother me at all lol. It's kinda odd really.
There's nothing wrong with that :) Ariat actually makes running shoes you can ride it. So what :)

It doesn't matter what others think about how it looks - Go with what is comfortable for you!!!!

My tall boots fit perfectly with my breeches so there is no way I could get my jeans to fit under them. When I wear jeans I wear my paddock boots and half chaps. Are you sure there is nowhere you can change really quickly?

Thanks everyone =D I think I'm going to stick with half chaps this time... they do seem comfier and just easier xD

I've attempted the tall boots/jeans a few times but for the most part they were uncomfortable. I always just went with paddock boots and jeans, and back when I first started riding, full chaps. (Because back than full chaps were all the rage LOL) Now adays it's usually just jeans and boots. =)

I always wear jeans and tall boots. Ever since I grew out of my breeches a little while back, I've just been wearing my skinny jeans and my tall boots. It works fine for me. I have lessons after school, too, so I don't like having to worry about getting changed.
I'll probably be buying new breeches pretty quick, though. As soon as my town gets a Greenhawk in May, I'll also be getting better boots. I'm tired of looking half-assed and sloppy.

My husband wears tall snake boots and jeans. They probably aren't the same as an equestrian boot but he wears wading boot gaiters underneath to keep the jeans from bunching up. Like these:
I'm a paddock boot wearer but I know he loves his snake boots.
