@AndyTheCornbread it worked out good for me! I was a horse crazy kid without a horse of my own and would go to watch my friends' dads (who were also friends of my dad). Once they'd rope a few, they would get down and start drinking beer and let us kids tool around on their rope horses.

The older I get the harder it is to lift my leg. Jeans are too restrictive. I started wearing sweat pants riding a few years ago. Much easier to lift my leg up in the stirrup and not nearly as sticky in the saddle. My cowboy friends say I look stupid. I don't care! Those old farts look kind of stupid tryin to lift their leg above the knee it their tight jeans.

As a Western rider, I frequently make the traitorous, blasphemous choice to don English breeches for my arena and around-the-barn riding. I specifically like Kerritt's Ice Fil breeches for the Arizona heat and for comfort and flexibility. They just don't hold up to trail riding amongst all the thorns and cacti, and aren't acceptable for Western clinics or gymkhanas.

I wish there were Western riding jeans that compared in comfort and coolness.

I used to wear sweat pants for riding in the winter but I just ripped too many of them up. And they ARE slicker in the saddle.......good or bad I guess that depends on your horse!

If you ever want to go back to not wearing sweats you should try some of the "Levi's 569 loose straight stretch" jeans that I ride in. Very comfy and because they have some kind of spandex woven into the threads with the cotton they are very stretchy.

Levi took on some political views regarding the 2nd amendment that I strongly disagree with. They've seen their last dollar from me.

I wasn't aware of it until you said something. I went and looked it up just now. Looks like I will have to find a different jean company. I won't be giving money to any company that is anti-2A. I fought too long and too hard for too many years in the Marines to support companies that want to take away the rights I served for. Thanks for the heads up, they won't see another dime from me.
