Model: Ribb Low Rise Knee Patch Breeches
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I have purchased several pairs over the years, some from a local tack shop, others from Dover Saddlery. They run around $50 a pair.
Likes: These are almost indestructible. Several pairs are 3-4 years old and have been worn several times per week and not just for riding. I have thrown hay bales and fixed fence in them as well. I have worn them on lots of trail rides and ridden through trees, etc. and they haven't snagged or pulled. The low rise fits me perfectly and the "long" length in generous. They come in several colors and the ribbed fabric is very flattering.
Dislikes: These seem a bit slippery in some saddles-usually new or un-oiled leather. I like the knee patch version well enough, perhaps I will try the full seat and see if that fixes the problem. Also, they can be a bit hot in the summer.
Quality: These breeches hold up very well. The only wear, and it is minor, is on the inside of the legs and seat. All of the seams are in good shape. I love that I can wash them in the machine and then toss them in the dryer. After several years, I still have no problems with shrinkage or damage to the knee patches. Fit is very generous.
Summary: These are my favorite schooling breeches. You can't go wrong with the price and they are very easy to take care for. I like the knee patch style and will likely try the full seat style as well.
