****! I wanna be Canadian...for today, anyway. ;-)
I ride in what I call my "poor man's breeches." They're denim leggings I got at Walmart for $13. I LOVE them because they fit like breeches, but they look like jeans, and I can still wear my half chaps with them (jeans are too bulky, so they make the half chaps, which are already snug on my big calves, uncomfortably tight). Walmart.com: Faded Glory - Women's Jeggings: WomenWish they could ship to the USA. I ride western, but wouldn't object to riding in breeches. I wouldn't be the only one on the trail in them, daughter's horse trainer almost always rides in them. Guess they hold up better than jeans?
Glad I could help! These leggings have held up really well. Not sure exactly when I got my two black pair, but I wear them any time I even think I'm going to go riding, so they get worn quite a bit, and they have yet to even start to look worn. I just got the denim pair a few weeks ago because I wanted something for summer that wasn't quite so dark and that I could wear with regular boots if I was going out somewhere. I've even worn them to work and gotten compliments on them (usually have ended up wearing them to work after I've been at the barn in the morning or if I plan on going after work and don't want to have to worry about changing). I LOVE that they have back pockets (the "front pockets" are just for show and aren't real). The price isn't too bad, either. I'm considering getting a pair of khaki ones, as well.Thank you for posting this! I was literally just on wallmart's website looking at jeans I could buy tomorrow for riding. My current ones are not comfortable at all.
