I also think yoga pants would be the best. Although I find riding in jeans incredibly comfortably. I guess ride in whatever makes you feel best.

Maybe find the true meaning of 'bareback' riding?

Just a warning- I find riding in sweats/yoga pants more slippery if you're on a leather saddle.

From a male chauvinist pig's point of view, ain't nothing like a nicely stuffed pair of jeans.
Celeste and loveduffy like this.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Male chauvinist's don't have the corner on that sentiment (you didn't say what the jeans were stuffed with, after all)

I don't know...I like women in chaps, and they can wear any kind of comfortable pants underneath they want as long as they are "form fitting"...

I never thought about this. I might need to buy a few pairs of these. Thanks for the suggestion.

Just be careful with the pockets. They're handy to keep stuff in but stuffed pockets can be uncomfortable. I usually keep my pockets empty. I tend to go to Goodwill on Sundays (clothes are 50% off) and buy barn clothes. I can get cargo pants for about $2 each!

I'm not fond of riding in tight pants either. Most of the time I ride in a pair of loose double layered exercise trousers that are great - they are light, mostly windproof, and dry really quickly. They are also thin enough that I can get them into the tops of my riding boots without it feeling too snug or bulky. They are kinda silky but I have never had any issues with sliding around the saddle in them. They are full of holes and covered in paint from when I wore them to paint a fence but I will probably keep riding in them till they fall apart!
