    I've ridden in breeches for years-much more comfortable than jeans-I get sores from those seams. I usually ride in my English boots, but have some tall Western boots also. I also ride w/a snaffle bit, usually in an English style bridle. Why should anyone else care?

    Love those Horka's too!

    Am I looking at the correct place? I looked up Horka and they are in the Netherlands. Is there a US distributor?

    I like stretch pants - jeans, breeches, slacks, whatever.

    I prefer full seat breeches but not in this hot weather. When it's super hot I'm going to wear the thinnest stretch cotton pants I have. I ride western. I wear whatever is appropriate and comfortable. I have (I think) three full seat breeches but they're all a little bit thick and heavy so I'm leaving them for fall/winter and spring. THe rest of the time I'm in stretch jeans.

    I'm not about fashion or what people are wearing unless I decide to do competition then I'm going to want to look as good as the next person. What I am about is riding comfortable. For me stretchy and full seats are comfortable plus what I love is the little bit of extra grip on the saddle.

    I am from Canada, our local feed/tackstore carries Horka breeches & helmets. I bought these on sale, 50% off, regular $125, so I am thinking maybe they discontinued this style? I have looked on their website, they don't list this style.

    Ah, could be. I didn't see them either but then the pics were very small so I wasn't sure. I'll continue to try to find their brand in the States.

    I ride in a western saddle with full seat breeches. Then again, I don't care about fashion. I would love to get a pair of these.

    Those are very similar to mine, except double the price, but I like the looks of those a bit better, the cargo pocket!
