Just so I don't sound like a spoiled hunter princess, let me explain my 25 pairs!! Riding is my job. I ride on average 3-5 horses a day, 5-7 days a week. When I'm not riding I'm teaching, so I basically live in my breeches. Where I live it's over 100 in the summer and in the 20s in the winter and since I'm outside ALL DAY it's important for me to be comfortable! So I have about 6 summer breeches, 6 winter breeches, 8 or 9 "regular" breeches. I also go to shows where I show for up to 5 days in a row and don't have access to a washing machine/dry cleaner so I have to have at least 5 pairs of show breeches. I actually buy most of my breeches on clearance or ebay or very deeply discounted from my friend who manages a tack shop. Clearance rack is my best friend though. When I see good ones on clearance I usually buy them and keep them for when I wear a pair or two out (which happens often, even the good ones). And I'm also always on the hunt for the "best" pair out there so when I see some I don't have I often buy them to tryout new brands. So no, I'm not one of those spoiled girls who just has to have a million pairs of whatever clothes. I actually use and wear out every single pair I own!
I totally agree with you there! For as much work as you do you would need lots of breeches! Thank you for the advce!!
