I personally love breeches, their durability and style. I was slightly apprehensive of trying riding tights when they became the new schooling style. I bought two brands, one being Kerrits, to try during my schooling rides. The other brand I bought was not holding up to the pressure of barn chores, riding multiple horses, and keeping me warm when the breeze picks up. However, my Kerrits tights still look brand new months later! These tights wash up fantastic and they hide the dirt throughout the day. I am a huge fan and can't wait to try the fleece winter tights!
