Jodhpurs - Always a Classic Choice

Choose from Traditional English or Kentucky Jodhpurs

Jodhpurs are the traditional riding pants for English riders.  Jodhpurs originated from riding pants worn in India, and became popular with the English military officers as they adopted the Indian game of polo.   Before the addition of lycra in riding apparel, Jodhpurs were snug from the knee down and flared over the hips to allow for movement.

Modern English Jodhpurs are generally snug from the waist down to the ankles, where they end in a cuff that is worn over paddock boots or jodhpur boots.  Knee garters are added to protect the knees from saddle rubs, and elastic straps hold them down over the instep of the foot.   Adults generally wear them for schooling, while children traditionally wear jodhpurs for showing until they are old enough to graduate to long stirrup classes with breeches and tall boots.   

Kentucky Jodhpurs (more commonly called Kentucky Jods) are similar jodhpurs worn by saddle seat riders on gaited horses.  They are flared at the bottom and long, rather than tightly cuffed, so that they fall below the level of the foot when mounted.
