Question After how many wears do you...

... wash your riding pants? Just curious and it seemed fun to ask.



I confess I wash them after 5-8 times of riding unless something really gross sticks to them (like blood or horse poo)

Two or three with the same criteria as you. I keep riding clothes in my truck and change from my other job (business casual) in either my tack room or the outhouse.

There is no set number of times for me. I wash 'em if they are smelly or dirty or both. I will admit to pulling dirty pants out of the hamper and wearing them when I am behind on the laundry.

Generally after every ride. At the moment due to the liberal application of mud (after the ride I often clean up mud splatters from my face and shoulders too). And in warmer months I sweat...

It depends on the weather and how dirty they get. In the summer I might declare them dirty after a couple of rides. In the winter, they might go a week or two, especially if I'm not riding that much or that far. So pretty much whenever I consider them dirty.

Eh. Maybe once a week? Or when they get dirty. Whichever happens first.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

3-5 times before I wash them, depending. I have some that are a nice, cool, hemp-cotton blend, but my washing machine tends to destroy them. So I can wash them like 5-6 times before they start getting holes. Then I have to patch up the holes and start again. So I wear them until I can't stand the smell any more (maybe 5-8 times) and then wash them as gently as possible.

My other riding pants I'd say more like 3-5 times.

I've even started going to the grocery store after riding, wearing those nasty pants.

When is used to wear riding pants with an inset seat made of pigskin leather, I very rarely washed them. But now I use a synthetic pant, with a latex like inset. I wash them after maybe 10 rides? I am pretty much a slob when it comes to laundry and house work.

About every other ride, sometimes even after just one ride. I guess I'm the exception!

My barn coats, on the other hand, will go at least a whole season before being washed.
