Manufacturer: Mountain Horse
Model: Forest Rider Pant
Category: Western Casual Apparel
Purchase: Pants were purchased online from SmartPak after getting tired of trying to find the right layers to wear in winter that would still allow me to bend at the knees. I paid $80.95 and had a free shipping code.
Likes: These riding pants are wonderful-they are comfortable to wear for chores or walking the dog, yet allow comfort while riding too. The have a flattering fit-they are not bulky at all. Before these pants I would need long johns, jeans and sweat pant-lined running pants to stay warm. I was warm but uncomfortable. Duck/canvas work pants are too short to ride, plus they are just too bulky and unyielding. In recent near zero temperatures, I only wore long johns under my Forest Rider Pants and was perfectly warm. These pants do not ride up when you are in the saddle so you don't have cold ankles either. The snaps at the ankles are adjustable to go inside or outside of your boots. The full seat breeches really help you stick to the horse for bareback riding, yet are synthetic (washable!) The Forest Rider Pants are not bulky at all, they are shaped attractively for a woman's shape.
Dislikes: There is nothing I don't like about them.
Quality: The fabric is quiet and flexible, yet heavy enough to repel wind. It is also smooth enough to wipe dust off of on your way to the store. I've brushed corners in the tack room without snags. The zippers are heavy duty, and I like the heavy duty snaps that adjust the waistband to what you are wearing under them.
Summary: These pants see a lot of time riding. I live in a cold climate, it will be really nice to be able to ride all winter in comfort and style.
