I am looking for some new riding breeches but i'm not sure which ones to get. I want full seat breeches. I need to stay in the lower price range (up to $100). Which brands do you prefer/recommend?

I 100% recommend Ariat :D! I love how durable all of their attire turns out. I've had a pair of padock boots from them for about 8 years now and they are still going strong. They look used but not horrible, I'll get a pick sometime. They can be on the pricy side (depending on what kind you would like) but I am sure you can get a steal on craigs list, ebay, or maybe a local tack swap of some kind?? my second pick would be Devon, I rode in a friends paid at a show and they were not too shabby at all. :wink:

this post spurned a buying spree. (ok, maybe not an actual spree...)

I have a pair of light tan breeches, and a pair of black schooling tights. I just bought a new pair of black breeches..ya know, for my big booty...black is more slimming than the light tan.

whichever ones fit the best! i would highly recommend going to a tack shop and trying on several pairs. different brands and different models will all fit each person differently and you will want which looks and feels the best to you, esp if you end up paying up to $100. for schooling i like kerrits and tuffriders. for shows (hunter/jumper) ariats and tailored sportsmans are pretty popular. i'm assuming that if you want full seats you're more of a dressage rider though?

Definitely go and try some on. I bought a pair of Ariat full seat and they are fine around the waist but the butt is soooo baggy. The full seat is so uncomfortable. I still wear them cause I paid a fair bit for them but I don;t think they are very flattering. I have a pair of Ariat with just the knee patches and they fit wonderfully, so comfy and fit my butt.
I have some cheapo breeches too that I bought on special at various sales that I love, some Dublin and Windsor ones. They fit well and are nice breathable fabrics.
