Jeggings/leggings aren't made for riding. Even with knee patches, they're far too thin and will wear out faster than a pant that's actually made for riding horses.

I prefer jods over breeches, but will wear both. Fullseats are great if you have a horse who likes to spook sideways at 300 mph. at inopportune times.

I just bought 2 pairs of jods for $5.00 a pair, and the last breeches I bought were on sale for $20.00. If you keep your eyes open, you can certainly find well made riding pants for a lot less than regular retail.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

There are fully figure lines of breeches and jods now. They are not more expensive and the fabric is nice, it hides the cottage cheese look well.

Thanks for asking. I was not sure what they were talking about either.

I have this really awkward lower body shape going on, and I like the "supported" feel of proper riding tights or breeches. I've used Kerrits riding leggings but I don't like them. They're too much like normal leggings so my legs appear to "jiggle" more than they would if I wore tights or breeches. It does not compliment my position.

I've found cheap breeches before. Stores that aren't "brand name" like Dover, Bevals, etc usually have some really cheap ones laying around. We have a HUGE warehouse of horse stuff around here...You can buy $200 white jods and $10 used breeches in the same store!

I'm kind of an Ebay addict.

I can usually find $70+ riding pants for under $15 new, and if i have the cash i go for it.
But for the people who aren't so into internet shopping i still think jeggings are great and I'm happy to hear some people ride in them.

I know this thread is super old, but there is a company that makes English riding gear specifically for bigger riders. It's called fuller fillies and they make some adorable clothing! Fuller Fillies
