Horse riding is a very gear-intensive sport, and requires the rider to have all the proper
equipment. One thing that is essential to the English style of riding (whether you choose to do dressage
or show jumping) is a few pairs of good riding breeches.
Breeches are specifically designed for the saddle to give you the most comfortable feel when
riding. They are also designed to be worn with tall boots and paddock boots. While some people are inclined to just
wear jeans under their chaps, this can be uncomfortable due to the thick inseams on the jeans. The rough material
can also ruin your leather saddle.
When buying mens or ladies riding breeches, it's important to get a pair that fit really well.
If the breeches you buy are too baggy, you could end up rubbing and irritating your skin. On the other hand, the
breeches should not be so tight that they restrict your movement.
Other important things to keep in mind are the fabric, thickness and weight of the material.
You'll want at least one good pair of lightweight, summer breeches as well as some thicker, well-insulated breeches
for when the temperature drops. As far as what colour to choose, that's really a matter of preference. However, to
look as professional as possible when riding, you might want to stick to neutral colors like browns, blues and
greens and avoid anything that is very bright or flashy. Pink is definitely out!
There are many different brands you can choose from as well. For everyday riding, take a look at
breeches by Ariat, Derby, Dublin and On Course. For show jumping breeches, the best brand to buy from is Tailored
