Are there riding jeans that are not really jeans?

I'd like them to look like jeans, but feel like the softest breeches. My daughter can't wear jeans. She rides in a Western barn, and they are informal enough that she can wear beige breeches that we got second-hand, and everyone is happy. But she's outgrowing them, and she'd like something less "English."

Many places have breeches that look like blue jeans! Check out Dover or smartpak.

Yeah they have jean breeches. I bet 'jeggings' would work too (jean leggings, from JC penny or walmart, etc.)

What's the issue she's having with wearing jeans? Maybe we can find a way to work around it.

Thanks! Here's the puzzle:

She finds the material too rough. Says seams dig in. The belt digs in. The back of the button digs in when she bends. The low risers are too low when she bends down. The higher waist ones are uncomfortable on her waist. I think these are her main issues.

I've tried making her try on different styles and sizes, but she hates them so much, she probably only tried about 4-5 pairs, in second hand stores. She can't even think about the current styles, such as skinny jeans, even if they have lycra. Another reason for second hand stores, as I was hoping old jeans might be softer.

She is just very particular about how clothes fit, and she'd sacrifice looks for comfort any time. She loves sweat pants for their comfort. Last summer she rode in very thin, very silky kerrits tights that I got second hand for her. Sadly, she outgrew them.

I think her ideal pair of jeans would be soft--maybe I can make them soft by washing multiple times? With some stretch. Adjustable waist, maybe even elastic cuff-like material for the waist.

She'd be wearing size XL or 14 in kids, depending on the brand. She's tall, slim but not skinny. I haven't seen "comfort jeans" for this age/ size. I'm sure there's, somewhere, a very expensive pair of riding jeans / denim breeches that are uber soft and stretchy. I just don't have the $300 I suspect they'd cost. Sigh.

hmmm.

What about jeggings from American Eagle? They are VERY soft, you wouldn't know they were jeggings by looking at them. They look exactly like jeans. They've got a ton of stretch to them. Maybe with a good softener they'd loosen up a bit more? I just don't know if they'd be to slippery in a western saddle.

But def keep an eye on smartpak. They've been having deals on their breeches like crazy. I bought two pairs for 30 bucks, originally 120.

$53.95....stretch riding jeans. Mid-rise, no inner-seam, knee patches, stretchy and supposedly kids love them!!
here is the link...

Irideon Stretch Denim Bootcut Breeches - Kids - Adams Horse and Pet Supply

Here is another to consider and these are more reasonably priced but not sure your child will fit in these...
at $23.95....

and the link...

Just some ideas of what is out there currently, comfortable and not going to cost you half the rent to buy!

Happy shopping!


ETA:...sorry the second link did not copy correctly... just copy then paste into your address bar and it should take you straight to where I saw these jeans...

Thanks! I'll keep on looking. She has a pair of hand-me-down jeggings, I think Old Navy. She didn't like how the waist fit her, but she said she could try them with a belt.

Thank you! The Irideon seem to have many characteristics that would make them acceptable for her. Including an elegant pocket design, because she also hates bling on pockets.

It also seems that the shipping to Canada will be reasonable--they say they charge actual shipping, which is usually decent.

I'm excited about this pair!

The Steeds are better priced, but not her size.
