Jeans that don't rub in the thighs

Does anyone have any recommendation for jeans that hold up to thigh rubs? I'm short and curvy and have a tough time finding jeans. I ride western dressage so I am in jeans constantly.

I had thunder thighs for most of my life...
My legs are rock solid muscle and very developed as are my calves...
I've never found any pants, jeans or breeches that last like those skinny legged riders are blessed with...they rub, they get wear spots and then they go rip as you stretch for that stirrup high in the air...
I'm not overly heavy, but very muscular...

If you can wear mens jeans, swear they make them from thicker grade of material...
And I'm pretty sure some jeans have a extra layer of material both on front of thigh and knee, not sure if it was across the inner thigh...
Actually if you can find fabric self-patched full-seat breeches that would give you one more layer of material before rub and holes start...
They do make riding jeans, actual jeans with stretchy that might work...they are pricey so check around for pricing.
I tried real riding jeans with knee patches and full seat...for the price I could buy 2 or 3 pair of jeans and still have the same issues over time.
...

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

Wrangler's Q Baby's. I have had one pair for 15 years, granted I don't have large thighs, however not even the slightest thigh rub on these jeans. I have a pair of Miss Me's, about 3 yrs old and they are showing some thigh rub. You made me go check on my riding jeans, lolol!!!

I tried riding in a brand new pair a few days ago in my dressage saddle and the crotch seam was agony!

Ouch! Oh my that is horrible! I haven't had that problem at all. If any of my clothing was agony, whether riding, streetwear whatever, they get moved along.

LOL! They're my Sunday-go-to-meetin' jeans now. I'm afraid I'm hooked on riding tights.

Wish I could help, but I'm a leggings and tights kind of girl! I've always hated the thickness and lack of stretch that jeans have, even jeggings. I know, I'm weird. 😄

Jeans & any pants I wear tend to wear at the inner thigh seams relatively quickly. Especially as I walk a lot.

But when riding, I don't actually get the issue with jeans. I'm always riding in jeans(well, when I'm not in trakkie pants or a dress in summer) and I've never had an issue with them rubbing - either my thighs, or wearing themselves away. That's regardless whether I've ridden in a Western, English or Aussie saddle. Or bareback, which I often do too... Or for that matter, the style of riding - whether I've been chasing cattle or doing arena/flatwork.

I've heard many people complain about it, say they couldn't possibly ride in jeans because of it, so I know it's a 'thing', and the trail co I used to work for advised people who weren't used to riding to wear a pair of pantyhose under their jeans to prevent chafing. That went down really well with the blokes!

Buckles brand seem to do really well. My son outgrew a bunch of his American Eagle jeans and instead of tossing them, I've been wearing them around the house and they are super soft and stretchy and comfy to ride in. And they actually look cute. I tried the girls jeans on at American Eagle but they seem to be made for 16 year olds that weigh about 97 lbs.

If I ride in jeans at all then they have to be the lighter stretchy type. I wouldn't ride in non-stretchy jeans
If you want comfort and denim look then buy some riding leggings or breeches
They come in a variety of styles and prices and they'll last longer as well as being more comfortable
