Abby, I got those breeches today, and I love them. There's a little extra room in the back end when you're standing, but its fine when you're sitting. I would also order a size bigger than what you normally are because they do run on the smaller side. Other than that, they are really comfy. Can't wait to try them out.

Ooh wow. Okay, I really liked some of their breeches too. Which ones did you order Appy?

Edit- Nevermind I found the onse you ordered. I really liked those ones. Are they comfortable around the ankle? I hate it when they bunch and squeeze at the ankle.

I believe horseloverz.com is having a free shipping special right now (free shipping on $50 or more, free shipping plus 10% off on $100 or more). You should be able to find all of those things there and I've gotten some fantastic deals. I'd also check out ebay if you know your size. Smart pak has some great things like someone already mentioned.

I have shopped on e-bay but I don't know my size yet, so I'd have to shop around and have the option to trade the item in for a larger size. I have ordered a lot of stuff form horseloverz so I'll check out their store for chaps/breeches and the likes.

they are extremely comfortable around the ankles. I didn't try them on with boots tho, so I cannot say how they are like that. My fiance said they looked good on me, so i'm trusting him. I also did the mounting test (when I put my foot up like i'm getting on) and I was able to do it no problem.
Also with Smart Pak, if you order before 2pm EST, they ship out that day. I did it and got it delivered the next day, even though I selected ground shipping. I was quite impressed.

I can't tell you that Abby. Haven't tried them out yet in the saddle. But when I did slide my hand over it, it was hard. If you want to wait til the weekend to order, I'll try them out saturday or sunday, most likely sunday. And I could tell you

I rode today and wore the full seat breeches. They are really comfy and I did feel they stuck to the saddle. I really tried my best to feel a difference, but when Vega was bucking, it was hard to tell :)

I did like them and will be using them all the time when I ride. One thing though, the white gets dirty instantly. Also with these they aren't the low rise, but I feel they support better than my low rise knee patch ones. They didn't slide down when I was riding at all. But the waist band is a bit restrictive. I didn't notice it when I was riding, but sitting in the car I did. It's not to the point where I can't breath or anything, but it takes some getting used to. (all of my pants sit below the waist so this was new for me)

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask :)
