WHAT ARE BREECHES?

Breeches are a technical garment that is very popular in all English Riding disciplines.
They usually help you to move freely, and remain comfortable and attached to the saddle.

Made of multi-strecth and breathable fabric using Polyamide and a big amount of Spandex, they’re made in a very strong and durable fabric and they can be washed many times in a washing machine.

 

WHAT KIND OF BREECHES SHOUD YOU WEAR?

It all depends on what kind of discipline you are doing. Traditional fabric is the most recommended for jumping, dressage, and hunter, traditional riding competition. If you want extreme freedom and comfort you should try the new leggings line with a revolutionary concept of fabric like a second skin.

 

KNEE PATCH OR FULL SEAT GRIP?

Knee patch breeches have patches of other material (like silicone) on the inside of the knees. These give the rider an extra grip where her knees make contact with the saddle. These breeches are especially used in jumping competitions, to give free freedom in movement, but also a great grip during the stop.

Full seat breeches, also as the name suggests, have silicone material along the entire seat area of the breeches. This provides a much stronger grip to the saddle and is often used in dressage disciplines where the composure is an important factor.

 

THE COLOR IS IMPORTANT.

All the models have a White version for competition events, but you can choose wide range of colors, like green, red, navy or beige, for everyday use.
