Riding tights are a newer phenomenon in the equine industry that somewhat stray away from the traditional breeches. Riding tights, or riding leggings, have elasticated waistbands for maximum comfort and they’re often made from technical, moisture-wicking fabrics. They're similar to sport leggings, but specifically designed for horse riding, which is why they often look casual and sporty.
Riding tights or riding breeches?
If you're not a fan of leggings, or want the added practicality of having buttons and zippers, we'd recommend breeches instead. But other than the closure and waistband difference, most riding tights and breeches are very similar these days and often made of the same technical materials.
Which seat to choose with riding breeches?
Riding breeches and riding tights are specifically designed for horse riding. Breeches have a tight fit and are made from comfortable fabric. Seams are designed so they don't cause irritation during riding. A supple fabric is vital during horse riding. Riding breeches can have a (faux) leather, silicone or fabric seat. You can choose a full seat that covers the buttocks and entire inner-leg area with leather or silicone, or you can opt for knee grip or knee patches instead. Lately, breeches with leg grip have been popping up, where the silicone runs across the entire inner leg, higher than with knee grip, without covering the seat.
Riding breeches with a fabric seat
Breeches with a fabric seat have no added patches on the seat or knees for increased grip. They offer maximum freedom of movement, but require a stable position of the rider as you tend to slip and slide more in the saddle. If you want more grip in the saddle, try pants with a leather or silicone seat.
Riding breeches with a leather seat
(Faux) leather-seat riding breeches provide more saddle grip and stability, as there’s less sliding, which makes it easier to sit trot, for example. If you wish to be flexible in the saddle, but have more grip around the knees, you can choose riding breeches with knee patches instead.
Riding breeches with a silicone seat
Breeches with a silicone seat offer extra saddle grip, as silicone is rubbery and slip-resistant. Due to its flexibility, silicone moves with the stretch in your breeches but will let you stick to the saddle like glue. If you’d only like some extra grip around the knees you could buy breeches with silicone knee grip.
