I have the same problem (ripping and wearing out my jeans). I also ride and work in the same jeans all day and they wear out so fast (6-8 mos. Or so)! I buy all of my "work/riding" jeans at a local thrift shop. I can get name brands -wrangler, AE, Hollister, Levi- for about $5 a pair. Luckily, I'm a very common size, 8 reg., so I never have problems finding jeans that fit. I love not feeling bummed about ripping my pants because I know I got my money's worth! Try it!

I have always rode in jeans. Breeches are weird.

Now, I'm cheap so I refuse to spend more then $20 (and YES, a $2000 saddle for horse is DIFFERENT) on a pair of jeans. I go to Stitches, and I am just now getting to the point where I'm replacing my high school jeans - the last good pair I had the ambulance guys cut off me, the inconsiderate jerks.
I HATE clothes shopping. But for the price of them, they have done well. Maybe if I go next month, I won't have to go for another nine years.

I've had the same problem. I usually wear jeans in the winter just because they are a little warmer, but I always wear them out. I'm cheap and HATE buying anything, let alone new jeans. Maybe next year I'll try Wranglers; I only hear good things about them.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

You haven't tried Stitches yet, I bet.

Perhaps riding in chaps would help? Other than that, any of the brands mentioned above-I also like Rockies.....I have to have tall ones so that limits me somewhat. Thrift store has also been one of my stops over the years, but they have to have a fitting room. I try on about 50 pairs and buy one. Hard to find good ones.

Heck, YEAH! I bought a pair a few years back that fit just right at the waist and are loose and comfy in the seat and upper legs.
It's not like anybody is going to watch me ride...in my back yard. Not breaking any laws, here.

I have Old Navy jeans. They have been through over a year of full time barn work and are still holding up. They're not even discolored or anything.
