Where I live it's over 100 in the summer and in the 20s in the winter and since I'm outside ALL DAY it's important for me to be comfortable! So I have about 6 summer breeches, 6 winter breeches, 8 or 9 "regular" breeches. I also go to shows where I show for up to 5 days in a row and don't have access to a washing machine/dry cleaner so I have to have at least 5 pairs of show breeches. I actually buy most of my breeches on clearance or ebay or very deeply discounted from my friend who manages a tack shop. Clearance rack is my best friend though. When I see good ones on clearance I usually buy them and keep them for when I wear a pair or two out (which happens often, even the good ones). And I'm also always on the hunt for the "best" pair out there so when I see some I don't have I often buy them to tryout new brands. So no, I'm not one of those spoiled girls who just has to have a million pairs of whatever clothes. I actually use and wear out every single pair I own!
I totally agree with you there! For as much work as you do you would need lots of breeches! Thank you for the advce!! it helped alot.

Haha, didn't find your comment offensive at all! but when *I* read my post I though, yikes, that's a lot of breeches.... just thought a small explanation would be good.
