I just bought a pair of Riding Sport breeches on Sunday, & they are a bit tight. But that's how most breeches are; they do have riding tights too...you could try those. But most breeches are tight.

Ride more, worry less.

Vidaloco - whew! Those are expensive! You should check out the one's they have on ebay!

And MIEventer- I think my trainer would have a heart attack if I showed in tights!
I don't think it's that big of a deal. There are fabulous tights on the market, like in Dover - that are lovely and well made. They are just of lighter fabric to make it more comfortable for the wearer in the summer - but when the blouse is on and the show jacket is on, absolutely no one can tell the difference.

Besides, who's going to look at your pants - when they should be looking at how they are riding.

I've worn tights at shows.














Can you tell?

Acctually I can. They are alot more tight then showing breeches are. If people look at you, they are bound to see your pants.

I will be sure to put on my hot pink pair with flowers on them so that everyone can see.

Haha, if someone wants to look at my bum, they deserve to see my undies. I would wear them for shows.

Most of the time I can tell but some tights are very high end they look ok. If your going to an A show I wouldn't wear them but I think you could get away with wearing them at Bs or Cs.
