Manufacturer: Ovation
Model: Equi-Star Low Rise Blue Jeans
Category: English Casual Apparel

Purchase: Since we live in Honolulu, Hawaii, equestrian attire is very hard to find in our region. Therefore, when vacationing in Lexington, Kentucky, we visited a nearby Stateline Tack located in Petsmart to see if I could obtain casual riding attire for lessons. I found a pair of jeans there and paid $49.99 plus tax.

Likes: These jeans have a lot of stretch and can easily pass as regular street jeans! I love pockets and these have the traditional 5 pocket as expected in jeans. Although it was very long, I felt I could roll up the hem or shorten it when I got home.

Dislikes: While trying it on again the the hotel room, I realized that the knee patch was located too low on my inner seam. I am only 5'4" tall and the jeans were made for an individual much taller, with longer legs. I couldn't return it as I lost the receipt so I ended up with a souvenir. While using it for riding, I also noticed the back pockets are located too low on the butt area and the inside leg seam can be felt while on the saddle which can be slightly irritating.

Quality: Although the workmanship and quality of the jeans are very good and durable, I only wished they made a petite version of this jeans for shorter legs. Also, as a consumer using the product, the low-set back pockets and the existence of an inside leg seam is a design that needs to be reconsidered before it becomes a comfortable pair to use for riding.

Summary: I have now learned to check the ergonomics of the riding pants before I purchase. If it is designed for a tall individual, don't buy it. I removed the low-set denim knee patch and relocated it higher using ultrasuede instead. Although I really can't use it for riding, I can still enjoy it as an unusual, stylish designer looking pair of jeans to go shopping or casual gatherings!
