Breeches are awesome!

I have always ridden in jeans, corduroys (remember those?), or whatever pants were available. For the first time, I finally treated myself to a pair of used breeches. My thought was that if I'm going to continue going out on 4+ hour rides, I want to be comfortable in my saddle.

Well, it worked, like I thought. But here's the bonus: breeches are better even when riding bareback! I never knew! How awesome is that! I went for a very short ride today; was too lazy to put on the saddle and I just loved having my breeches. Yay! Happy Dance.

(wow... I guess I need to get out more... this shouldn't make me so happy.)

Don't worry, I love a good pair of breeches too! So comfy, nothing pokes or pinches, stretchier than jeans [which limits my already limited flexibility, lol] and then you don't have to worry about having specific jeans to ride in!

Mine started developing a giant hole in the knee and sadly had to be retired after eight years of service. RIP, hideous green and maroon but super comfortable breeches. I've yet to replace them.

I love wearing breeches, especially when it hot they are easier to get off than jeans!

Try riding in tights sometime I started riding in my running tights as a temporary situation after my favorite pair of breeches got a hole. It was so comfy, I don't think I can go back to breeches again!

Ok.. maybe this is what I need. Ladies help me out here. Guys--this may be way to much info for you to read!!!!

I recently lost about 80 lbs.. I always wore jeans while trailriding but always had the seam right in the crotch hurt.. now after losing weight it REALLY hurts. I bought a pair of jeans that are "riding" jeans and the seam is flatter but is still there. I wondered about riding breeches but and like the idea of the "leather" seat/knees but I ride with cowboy lace up boots and think they would look really stupid with tight riding breeches.

I have tried putting "Butt paste" on the delicate areas that are getting rubbed raw but that has helped very little.

We ride mostly in the winter time and I would want/need some pants that would keep me warm.

Instead of breeches, try jodhpurs. They're made out of similar material but they have an actual cuff and the top of the pants goes over your boots, not inside.

I love mine.

I used to rub deoderant on areas prone to chafing. Gotme through the military and horse back riding!

Anti-Monkey Butt Powder works, too. I'd be a little hesitant to use deodorant on my girly bits.

As far as warm riding pants, I have several pairs of jodhpurs made out of stretchy corduroy. I can only wear them in the winter because they're far too hot for summer riding.

I wouldn't be, it works and I figure as long you don't shove anything up in places it shouldn't go, you aren't going to do anything, lol. Deodorant works for razor burn too.
