First, Let’s Define Your Horse Riding Pants Options
Breeches are a style of riding pants made with thin material and a design that finishes at the midpoint of your calf. They are generally considered the most formal horse riding pant and are usually the best option for your competitions when you want to impress in the show ring. Breeches fit snugly through the seat, leg, and thigh for complete riding control and excellent communication between rider and horse. Check out our breeches buying guide for further details.
Jodhpurs or “Jods” are full-length riding pants that often feature an elastic strap at the ankle to prevent the pants from riding up. Jodhpurs are great for young equestrians learning in the saddle and those who enjoy a versatile pant option.
Riding leggings are a cross between breeches and yoga pants. Generally available in a wider selection of colors than breeches, our riding leggings feature silicone grip in a knee patch or full-seat style for the right amount of hold.
Styles for Each Riding DisciplineDifferent riding pants are best suited to specific styles and disciplines. Understanding your options and matching your riding pants to your riding discipline will help you enjoy the best experience while building your skills as an equestrian.
Traditionally, dressage requires you to wear plain white breeches or jodhpurs. Full-seat riding pants are preferred for dressage as they provide a tight grip while performing your gait. Using this closer grip, you’ll be able to maintain the composure crucial for the unforgettable dressage riding experience.
The key to choosing equestrian pants for Western-style riding is comfort. Western riders should choose durable riding pants that stretch with the body’s natural movement in the saddle.
The athletic show jumper requires light, breathable breeches designed for fast-paced movement. Showjumping breeches should be fit snugly with some give in the fabric to allow for quick adjustments on landing.
For the endurance athlete, cross-country pants must feature breathable fabric that allows for long-standing saddle comfort. Consider moisture-wicking leggings for a lightweight style to support effortless focus and control.
Grace and elegance are fundamental to the Hunter riding discipline. Choose traditional breeches that fit tight to the leg for the ultimate level of style, poise, and effortless control over the course.
