Manufacturer: On Course
Model: Full Seat Cotton Breeches
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: While auditing at a dressage show several years back, I heard a comment that " She owes that seat to full-seats" I thought that was ridiculous. I decided last year to give them a try. I have purchased them and most of my riding apparel through Dover and the last pair of On Course natural cotton full-seats were on sale in the catalog for $69.95
Likes: First of all, In my opinion, there is nothing like cotton for comfort. They do have some lycra\spandex for stretch and shaping. I also like the fact that the fabric has good weight and body to it, so I can use them in summer (they ARE cotton, they DO breath) and they are also heavy enough for cooler temps. My favorite part is that they DO offer more security in the saddle. Several weeks ago, I was riding my 17.1 hh spotted draft in back 500 acre fields, when suddenly a flock of 40-50 wild turkeys leaped from their roosting spots and proceeded to traumatize my poor 3yr. old gelding. One even flapped into his side (my leg). Turkeys in every direction, My horse jumped, leaped, reared, and bolted in all directions ! Well.. all I can say is that I'd like to kiss the cheek of whoever designed full-seats. I stayed on, even though I had lost both stirrups !!!!
Dislikes: I would like to see them come in more larger woman's sizes. I teach riding lessons and several of my middle aged students need something roomier in the hips and waist.
Quality: The quality is excellent and have never had any stitches come apart or fade in washing. They launder super easy and I just hang them. They actually do relax a little, when you've been wearing them a while, but they never lose their shape like some cotton breeches do.
Summary: I really do have a hard time wanting to put on any of my other pants, when dressing to ride. I love'm, they're comfy, and I feel like I could be a bronc rider if necessary!!!
