Purchase: I choose the tights at the Kerrits clothing section of the Timmonium, MD, horse show, in Feb. 2006. they were billed as beta-type attire, and I thought they looked well tailored. They cost $50.00. I now own three pair.
Likes: These tights have a full-seat "rubber" appearing material, and the rest of the tights are made of a heavy-duty quick-drying material. These tights are ideal for riding gaited horses. They may not be the best for posting, but for a horse that has a steady running walk, they are the absolute best. You are really in the saddle to stay and even the spooks which my horses seem to enjoy providing me for my riding excitement do not unseat me. I view these tights as a safety issue the same as I do about always wearing a helmet. I will not ride now unless I am wearing these tights.
Dislikes: For my purposes, there is nothing I don't like about the tights, but people riding other than gaited horses might not be able to post comfortably.
Quality: The tights are very nicely tailored. I have worn them in summer and they have not been too hot. I am ordering a couple of pair in a size larger so I can wear a layer of silk tights under them for the coldest part of winter. They dry after washing very quickly. they are very slimming.
Summary: I think these riding tights are the best riding pants I have ever bought. Most importantly, they keep me safe in the saddle no matter what the horse may do, so I consider them a very important precaution against a fall from the saddle. Of slightly lesser importance, they are very attractive and well-made. They should last for years.
