How to find the perfect breeches for you

Finding the right breeches to suit your body type, style and budget can often seem like a massive challenge. After all, everyone want's a bang for their buck, to be comfortable, look good and be able to perform their best, which is why finding the right pair of breeches is so important for equestrians. For the riders of today, comfort and atheistic appeal is more dominant then ever. Gone are the days of "baggy" breeches in dull colours with leather knee patches, it's now all about the perfect fit, lasting quality, stylish colours & patterns and the type of grip required in the saddle. 

The choices are now endless, from full silicone seats, to bright colours, high waists, side zips, you name it's there. But the question still remains, what is right for you? When choosing breeches it's important to consider what you're wanting to use them for. Are you wanting a pair of breeches that need to withstand riding 8 horses a day 6 days a week or are you wanting a pair to ride one horse every few days? Are you needing breeches for hot weather or are you riding outside in the middle of winter? Do you have long or short legs? Are you someone who prefers a higher waist band or do you like breeches to sit on your hips? The questions are never ending, but for each question we have the ideal pair of breeches for you!
