I love these breeches! I have them in all different colours, I wear them for schooling and showing. My original pair I have had for at least two years and they are still going. They are really flattering, the fabric is not too thick, so it is especially good for us bigger girls. The only problem is that some of the stitching around the knee patches has come undone, and some of vertical seams have as well. But i ride about 5 times a week so they are being used lots. But the styling and comfort of these breeches far outshines any of the normal wear and tear these breeches will experience.
