Blue Jeans on Leather.

My instructor won't allow me to wear blue jean material when I ride in her saddle because she says it will wear the leather down (its also a 25yr saddle). I don't mind because its her tack but when I get my own saddle, I really don't want to have to be washing my riding pants every other day from our work outs.

Does the blue jean material ruin the leather on your saddles?

I wear jeans nearly every day and have forever. They haven't worn out my legs as far as I can tell! Seriously, I think the answer is "No". A saddle I sold recently has had thousands upon thousands of hours over 10 years of riding with no damage that I could ever tell.

However if you look at an English saddle where the leathers contact the flaps, you can see where the color is affected but I don't believe that any leather is ever worn away.

I never wear jeans while riding, but I know people that do, and their saddles are fine. I don't know for certain, but I doubt it'll do anything.

I have heard this but I still ride in jeans most of the time. My saddle is fine. Most of the women at my barn ride in their jeans a good deal of the time as well.

She's probably worried about the gromets (those metal things that stick out on your butt pockets and the side or your jeans) as it would cause scratches on the saddle.

I don't think jean material would do anything :/

It might just be a dress code rule. I know at the barn I was at and at the new barn when riding in a lesson breeches were required.

Yikes, try telling that to all the old ranchers with their 50 year old saddles!

I agree...I have heard those things can scratch up a nice saddle...

I believe Cowboys have been riding in jeans for a century or more now. Can't say as I've ever heard tales of their saddles wearing out. ;)
