thanks for you comment. :) Side zip seems to be more pricey so I think I might just try the front zipper to start with.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Yeah I think zips are easier to tuck in your shirt with. I have the tendency to tuck in my shirt every time I ride and I always get looks because my barn is pretty casual at home And I always get zipped because to save money I buy show breeches on sale and use them as schooling and show. All the show breeches I've had are alot tougher than schooling breeches I've had, so they last awhile. The only downside is they can get a little thick for Floridas 100+ degree summers, especially condsidering I do horribly in the heat. Really why do I live here?

Riding tights also usually don't have belt loops. And I think belt loops can be important for showing, since you most always wear a belt.

I like zippered breeches for showing, mostly for the look and that they tend to be more sturdy as someone else mentioned earlier. ;)

i really like my side zip jodpurs. I find that they are very easy to take on and off. For showing i'd go with sip and for schooling pull ons
