Riding western in breeches

Ok so after my chapping incident I have decided to order a pair of tuff rider ribbed breeches because they seem more breathable, comfortable and better looking than just regular Jeans. I am just so sick of Jeans and the seams, and they get really uncomfortable and baggy after a long day of riding.

Anyways, has anyone else ridden western in breeches before? Im afraid ill look stupid or tacky, I ordered smokey color so hopefully it wont look too stupid lol. I mostly ride trails but I am going to be learning English so I have an excuse for that lol.

I ride western in breeches sometimes! I keep my horses at home though, so I don't have to worry much about other people seeing me.
I think I you had a dark pair it wouldn't look weird at all.
I love breeches, once I put a pair on I don't want to take them off.

I do it all the time! They sure come off easier than jeans when you're sweaty. I know Kerrits (as other brands probably do) that make some especially for summer that wick away moisture and breathe better.

I've never ridden in breeches, but I couldn't possibly fault another rider for wanting to. I'm a firm believer in wearing whatever is most comfortable for you.

I ride western and after today I'm thinking about getting some. Turns out there is a good reason people don't ride in shorts. My leg is bleeding from rubbing on my fender. I don't think it will look tacky. I think breeches are cute. As long as they are pared with the right undergarments haha.

There is a few brands that sell combo English/Western breeches/jeans. My pair are from Horka, they have a foot stirrup for English if you want to ride with tall boots, but it's connected high enough that roper style boots will fit under.

The stirrup part, if you can see it, attaches high enough so western boots can fit under

I have worn tall boots with these as well, very versatile.

I definitely do all the time when I'm in the mountains. Its way more comfortable when were getting ready for an 8 hour day in the saddle. Plus it just seems a little safer than some of the people in my group that wear their pajama bottoms...

Love those breeches Waresbear! I prefer a full seat breech and I often ride in breeches with my western tack. I sometimes ride two or three horses in a day and change from Western to English. The only time I wear my jeans is when we go to team penning as there's a dress code. I have been looking for a pair of jean type breeches but so far I haven't liked any of the ones I've tried so far. Going to check those out Waresbear. They look fab on you! There may be hope for me yet.
