    Good morning,

    What are everyones personal preference for breeches in HOT HOT summers? Jeans seem to be too heavy and thick.

    Especially for those with some chub rub and extra booty...

    Mesh sided ones? Im not sure if I know what you are talking about. I have plenty of lularue legging that I could ride in however I think one ride and they are done because they are so thin. lol

    I ride in $8 leggings I bought from Kohl’s. I think the lularoe leggings would be too soft & might tear easily. Mine aren’t any thicker than lularoe just not that same soft material.... they’ve held up pretty well actually

    Just type mesh leggings on amazon. I typically only wear thin leggings, have yet to have a pair wear out.

    This couldn't be a better timed thread! Thanks for the tip. My daughter rode in shorts last week and wound up with sours on the backs of her thighs....surprise! Guess I should've put that in the thread about the crazy things we do with our horses.

    The thought of riding in shorts make me squirm. Your daughter is a champ.

    You can find ariat pro circuits (cool max, dryskin) and all circuits (tropical weight) on ebay. I've had mine for over a decade and they're still going strong. They're the only styles of breeches I can stand in the Texas summers

    I ride in shorts and short boots. I have those single strap stirrup leathers, haven't been pinched yet.

    Greenhawk's Elation denim breeches. I bought 2 pairs as they are better at keeping the mosquitoes from getting through. They are brutal this year!
