male riding trousers

Hey,

So I want some riding trousers that are casual so I can walk around the barn in and then ride, Id prefer to ride in jeans but hesitant as they may ride up or chafe.

Does anyone ride in jeans? Or is there more specialist riding jeans available?

Suggestions and links would be appreciated, btw looking for male trousers.

Thanks :)

All I wear are jeans. Wrangler makes good jeans with a single inseam. I would just select prewashed or stone washed or an older pair so the fabric is a bit softer and make sure that they fit right. Loose enough to not restrict any movement but not too loose. Unless you will be wearing tall boots you may also want to wear over the calf socks. Some people do get some chaffing from the stirrup leathers on an English saddle but the socks should prevent that.

I wear cheap Wranglers - $17 or so at the local Walmart. The thin seam is on the inside...never had a problem. Did not scuff up my English saddles (both Bates). Work fine with my Australian saddles and western saddles. I don't know if they sell them in England, though.

If not, look for 100% cotton and check the seam on the inside of the leg. Flat and thin is good.

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

A quick search resulted in several outlets in the UK that sell Men's Wrangler jeans.

Okay thanks :) you said about room, will I need a longer leg length in them? My inside leg is normally 30in would you recommend going up to 32in for riding?

Thanks everyone :)

My son finally settled on Tuffrider pro polo "jeans". I found them on sale and bought them a little big. He wears a belt and cuffs them for now. He says they are the most comfortable that I've had him wear and now that is all he wears. The have some give to them as well which makes getting on and off easier. He has always said his jeans bind.

Duluth trading sells "Ballroom" jeans which have a U-cut crotch. Allows a bit of wiggle room for Thor and the Twins. Great product, unconditionally guaranteed.

This place was my saviour: Men's Trousers Available From Equestrian.com

If you sign up to the email, you get a bit of spam but it also lets you know when the big sales are in town.. decent short leather boots for £10 that lasted my father 4 years of every day wear.
