At comps when we have an early morning start, we chuck our pyjamas over our joddies and warm up in that lol Then its time to get serious and we have to take off our warm pyjamas :(

If you don't mind not having full seat, the TuffRider Cotton Schoolers, are WONDERFUL! Since they are only about $20, I have 5 or 6 pairs that I alternate with. They hold up forever, and are easy to wash. They are great for around barn and are not that expensive, so getting you don't have to worry about getting them dirty!

I would suppose jeggings wouldn't be bad to ride in, I prefer riding in breeches because the people at my barn give me dirty looks when I wear jeans(the sad thing is that they're 50+:roll:) plus I just like the feel. I'm going to Target today and might just pick up a pair of jeggings!

I am in love, with what we are, not what we should be.

I ride in jeans, leggings, jeggins, and my riding tights. They are all great I love them all. I have the Kerrits riding tights and they are amazing I love them and will one day have them in every color haha. I ride english. I havent shown in forever so I am not concerned about show pants just yet they are so expensive.

I love them once they're on, but I hate putting them on. So clingy, and it just takes longer than throwing on some old regular jeans or sweats. I'll ride in anything and everything. Shorts included. Just throw on my half chaps, and I'm good to go. It's a bad excuse I know, but I just prefer to go without tight things, unless I have too.

I have tons of pairs of regular breeches that I really should use more often, but again, I hate putting them on. I have my tan ones for showing and clinics and stuff, and like three other pairs in funner colors, for a reason I don't know why I have them. I think they were all like birthday gifts or something.

Also think it depends on where you are. Barns tend to have their own "style". At all the barns I hang out at, it's jeans and half chaps. So... I guess that's where I get it from. We all like to take our chaps of immediatly after the ride, and just hang out for awhile, and I can't see myself wandering around in jeggings without my chaps on.... I've never been one to wear tight things, unless there's chaps or tall boots involved. Evens out the look for me.

With this new saddle I'm getting though, I've heard jeans can rub the soft leather too much, so my opinions on this may have to change.... But we'll see. I may become a jegging fan.

Can someone please explain difference between riding pants, breeches, jeggings, etc...?

We call everything riding pants here.

Jeggings are basically leggings, they just supposedly look like jeans without all the bulk/seams. They weren't intended for riding in.

Breeches for the most part have snap or button and zipper, they come in knee patch or full seat.

Riding tights have no snaps, buttons or zippers usually, the have an elastic waist. Mostly they only come in knee patch but you can find some full seat.

I personally wouldn't wear jeggings, might have looked cute years ago but as a mother of two, not happening. Thin leggings are a no go also.

I have a dozen or so pairs of full seat breeches, I watch sales and I find small sizes clearanced frequently which is perfect. I do own a half-dozen pairs of knee patch riding tights but those are only worn if nobody is going to be around and I have no shopping to do on my way home.

I think leggings are too slippery to ride in. I normally wear breeches and tallboots or half chaps but wear jeans sometimes too.

For people looking for a place to get cheap horsey items, www.horseloverz.com always has sales and their prices are already much lower than most places.
