Knee patch or full seat breeches?
 
I'm in the market for some new breeches and I'm going through catalogues. I've always worn knee patch but I'm curious about full seat.

Which are better in your opinion, full seat or knee patch breeches?

It depends on your discipline. If you ride hunt seat/jumpers then you have to have knee patch (or at least it is HIGHLY preferred) whilst full seat is mainly used for dressage.

Knee patch it is then LOL!

Sweets! :D I always love buying new breeches.

Yuh me too! I'm trying to find a decent brand that isn't going to kill the wallet either. I bought a pair of gatsby girls about 6 months ago and they're falling apart at the seams. Blugh.

Tack of the day has really good deals sometimes. You would have to check it daily until they had breeches for sale though. All they have till Monday at noon is blankets.

Your gatsby's are falling apart?! I have a pair and they are my absolute favorite! I've had them almost a year and they are in great shape. I'd wear them all the time..and sometimes do lol.

Yeh, I love them but the stitching on the knee patch came apart *sob*

check out TuffRiders. they run a bit small but they have some really nice quality breeches. On Course Cotton Naturals are also good quality and not too expensive.
