Looking for not so pricey Breeches(?)

Heya! I'm looking for riding clothes thats pretty nice but not so expensive. I'm mostly looking for breeches, since I already now what boots I'm getting. (I ride english)

I think it's time to get rid of my beginner-barely-spent-any-money outfit haha but since I've now been a while taking lessons , I want to buy clothes good for riding but that's not like $200 for breeches and way more on something like tall boots.

My current riding outfit isn't the best, I wear a t-shirt (okay), leggings, and very cheap shoes wich are probably one of the main reasons why my stirrups slide and move around so much. I'll be getting a pair of Ariat paddock boots but when it comes to breeches, I really dont know. I've seen tuffrider but I haven't seen videos of their breeches being reviewed. Ariats breeches look nice but are pretty expensive. Any not so expensive & trustworthy brands (online)?
I'm 15 and have to pay for my own stuff wich is why I'm really careful about the stuff I buy and money I spend, maybe some of you will understand.

Thanks for those who replied or atleast took their time to read!
Have a good day/night:)

I am not sure if you can get them where you are: horze.eu has it's own brand which is rather decent and not too expensive. BVertigo on the same website is slightly more expensive but really good quality.

I prefer pull-on tights to anything with a zip/button. I like Irideon and Kerrits riding tights. They are comfortable, functional, seem to wear/last well, and come in some fun colors. You could try ebay (or the equivalent depending on where you are in the world), or look out for things on sale/clearance.

You've made reference in past posts about Puerto Rico so thinking that is where you live...
With that, Amazon, Ebay are available to you as are all of the internet businesses you see written about here on the forum.
Being part of the United States Territories has some advantages, but shipping costs are what you need to watch for as sometimes as you know they can be expensive.

It is the weave of the fabric and heaviness of the material that makes clothing great for riding or not in coolness or warmth, longevity, look, comfort and support.
Personally I don't like tights and the super stretchy feel of them...also makes me sweat more and I find they just don't "breathe" as well as some breeches and cost about the same.
I also miss real or man-made "leather" patches as self-fabric just doesn't offer what I prefer in feel and grip.

If you are not buying tall boots then consider not buying breeches but jodphur pants as they are cut longer in the leg with better lower leg protection you would get from tall boots astride...there is a difference and your legs will know it when you get those first few "bites" on your inner calf exposed.
As large a selection nearly as breeches in many colors, shape & sizes and manufacturers...they might fit your needs better.
If you do breeches with paddock boots, consider half chaps...nice ones as they can allow you to wear the combination at beginner level shows acceptably outfitted and it allows you to wear any current clothes of jeans, sweats and such and still have lower leg protection from pinches.

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

I bought a pair Ovation breeches for I think around $60.00. They are a decent made pair, they have the silicone grip (which I'm not a huge fan of, but I digress). If you are not looking to spend money on riding boots (tall boots, I mean), a good option to use with your Ariat paddock boots would be half chaps. Less money, but more stability for your lower leg. Good luck!

I got my breeches at a second hand tack store. Not sure if that is an option for you, but that is where i look first so I am not spending a ton of money.

I have heard good things about Kerrits and want to get a pair, but I will wait until they are on sale.

I would also check out Amazon & Ebay

Dover Saddlerly has some good sales on breeches a lot. The most I spend is like $40!

Ride more, worry less.

I purchased BALEAF riding tights on Amazon with Prime shipping. They are $28.99 and I am very happy with them. Don't let the word "tights" fool you as they are much heavier than tights/leggings. They have knee patches and two well-placed pockets to hold phone or keys.
