If there is one thing I hate trying, then its new riding breeches. I once went to Divoza and tried almost every single breech in the store and none of them fitted me unless they costed way to many dollars. Generally when I find one that I like I end up buying every colour, just so I don’t need to buy any for a long time.
There is a few things that I need when it comes to breeches. They need to have stretch, so they don’t feel too tight when I ride. They need to have a high waist as unfortunately I do not have the smallest one. + I want them to be as cheap as possible. With that list in mind, quite a lot of breeches already fall off already.
A while ago a stable friend tipped me about the riding breeches from Horze. I must admit I was a bit hesitant as I generally like to try on the breeches before I buy them, but since Horze had such a great black Friday deal on, I took the plunge. Today I received them and they are so nice! The silicon seems really nice and the fit is great. So I wanted to bring the tip on to you. If you are looking for the same type of breeches as me I can really recommend the ones below (they are currently on sale for 49.95 euro!):
They have them in several different colours.
You can buy them HERE.
You can call me boring, but riding breeches full of bling bling just aint for me. I’ve tried it, but I just can’t handle it. If you saw my clothing closet you would see a sea of grey,white and black. The few coloured items must have been bought while being asleep as I don’t wear them.
So below you got 10 breeches without bling bling, 5 with leather grip and 5 silicon grip. As per usual, if you click on the name you are directed to where you can buy them.
- HV Polo Pro Odeon Leather – 130 euro
2. Montar Highwaist leather – 129. 95 euro
3. Easy Rider Abby – 89.95 euro
4. Eurostar Clair Leather – 170 euro
5. Easy Rider Abby – 89.95 euro
I’m considering buying the Easy Rider Abby one, it looks really comfy and the price is alright. I just wonder how the fabric is, I’m not so into the ones that feel like jogging pantsish. I’ve tried the ones from Montar, they have some kind of bamboo fabric, which feels kinda nice and soft on the skin, but is not for everyone.
1. Pikeur Candela FG – 209.95 euro
2. Pikeur Ophira – 157 euro
3. Eurostar Dafne fg – 130 euro
4. Eurostar Carina GF – 150 euro
5. Montar Highwaist FG – 134.95 euro

Hope you find one you like, let me know which one!
Lately I’ve noticed that more and more brands are coming with “training” riding pants or breeches like some would say. I don’t fully understand where this come from as I don’t really think it looks very classy, but my guess is that it comes from many riding pants just simply being so uncomfy. The riding world is definitely made for tall and skinny people. I can’t count how many times I’ve stood in a fitting room and tried on tons of different brands and pants and nothing fitted. Hence why I buy the same pant over and over again.
But now I went off track here, this was not what this post was about, it was about “training pants”. Have any of you tried these pants? Most of my jogging pants generally become quite a lot bigger after a while, so I wonder if its the same for these. The ones from hooks looks quite comfy, but I wonder how it is sitting in the saddle with them, if you know what I mean..
Harry’s horse – 69.95 euro
Hooks Europe – 79.95.
I think I’ more of a “classy equestrian”, I don’t think these fit with boots, but for the younger generation their probably perfect. Specially for those days you spend the whole day in the stable.
