I am a fan of both. I like knee patch breeches for showing. However I show jumpers and eventing. I have both white full seats and white knee patch. I use them for dressage and stadium and I do cross country in beige knee patch breeches.

I don't notice much of a difference between the two honestly. When I do dressage shows i'll wear the white full seats. I don't do dressage shows much though unless its a green horse I am working towards eventing.

Anyway yea. White breeches only for showing and then only if you are showing dressage or higher level jumpers or eventing. As for full seats... its a personal preference. Some people swear by them. Then you get those of us who don't notice a difference.

I will say though that when I had full seats and was riding in an old school wintec saddle that was the fabric seat, I stuck like glue! Lol

So so so true lol. I wear track pants over my white breeches right to the very last second and hold my horse as far away from me as possible lol.

I am still on a hunt to find a way to make white breeches not show every inch of jiggle and cellulite haha

Funny, tiny - I used to prefer riding dressage in a full-seat but since my seat has become more secure and independent I almost find the stick irritating because if my horse shifts suddenly (such as in a slightly overdone upward transition) I like to be able to "rehome" my seat quickly to the correct position.

I bought a pair of Lyndi J kneepatch denim breeches (these ones), they're quite stylish and very sturdy and comfy with no inner thigh seam. I gave them their first test on a 7 hour trail and they didn't cause a moment of discomfort. Look way better than my white breeches, which have quickly stretched in the saddle to sag at my butt (not a flattering look, and they were expensive too).

I prefer a pair of nice quality full-seat breeches, not the cheapest ones. You can find ones that are not bulky and I like the extra grip they give. I also like how they look and knee patch breeches feel just too stretchy to my taste. :)

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who went "Knee patch breeches, easier to ride in but there is camel toe and butt sweat involved. Full seat breeches, typically stiffer but resolves that last two issues. Hmm. Full seat it is!"

One big vote for full seat here. Stick or no stick I love to avoid the other issues

Just a heads up though. If you show hunters full seats stick out like a sore thumb.

I have both, but you want to know what I really prefer? Jodhpurs over breeches.

I don't show any longer, so don't need to make a fashion statement.

I have both as well. Like someone else said, I like wearing the knee patches when I plan do jump or go for a trail ride and I wear the full seats when Im doing flat work.

Thanks everyone! I'm a guy... So I won't have the cameltoe issue :p

And I really want a white pair of breeches- I just like the look fo them better and find them much more professional. So I think I'll go with the white knee patch breeches, but I'll still try the full seat on.
