Breeches vs. Jodhpurs ? What are the Differences?

Unfamiliar with the difference between breeches and jodhpurs?  Breeches are short pants fastened at the upper calf which are now mainly worn for riding a horse or as part of ceremonial dress. Breeches are used mostly nowadays by virtually all horse riders.  As the bottom is slightly different and does not cover the lower calf, breeches should be worn with either chaps or long boots.

Jodhpurs are full-length horse riding pants that are snug fitting below the knee and often have reinforced patches on the inside of the leg. Certain showing classes (especially children's) aren't allowed to wear chaps or long boots, so they wear jodhpurs that go down to the ankle and sit over short boots.

Ladies and men can wear both types of horse riding pants and come in a variety of fabrics and colours.  Ladies Breeches and Jodhpurs are more likely to be available in pastel colours and offer a more feminine cut than our men's pants.  We also offer a selection of children's riding wear.

There are reasons for why both of these types of riding clothes are more superior to jeans. Cut, construction, and materials all play a role in making them more comfortable.

Most breeches and jodhpurs are designed with comfort and stretch in mind and often contain materials such as Lycra or Spandex.  These materials enable them to be form fitting but not confining and with the right colour pattern, they can even be slimming.

Some horse riding pants utilise knee patches to protect the underlying fabric from typical wear patterns that occur due to needed slack in the knee area. These are sometimes made of the same material as the rest of the garment and sometimes a fabric like suede.

Dark coloured riding pants can be excellent for everyday use since they won't show as many stains, but most children and many adults prefer a two-tone pattern. Waterproof pants can be worn over the top of lighter colours to keep them clean before competitions.
