Similar to every discipline of sports activity, horse riding also demands specific clothing. It won't suggest that without proper apparel of the rider, the horse will not canter, but the norm, level of comfort, looks participate in an important function in all disciplines. Especially horse riding, namely a discipline from distant historical past, has generated specific qualities over time. Breeches are absolutely one of them.
Equestrian breeches, ease and comfort, and tradition
Equestrian breeches are special horseback riding outfits. Due to the fact they do not include seams on the inner edge of the leg, namely in the area in which the rider’s leg meets the saddle, they provide convenience and freedom of actions. This type of way of sewing defends your sensitive skin from chafing, makes it possible for the rider to correctly seat the horse and experience for a long time not having bad outcomes. Breeches may be firmer or puffed around the thighs, like cavalry breeches.
At the moment, the most used are tight types of breeches, nevertheless, there is still a large group of people preferring the cavalry design, for instance saloons or jodhpurs, having straight or a little bit widening legs. The last design has become common in the 19th century Britain due to Jodhpur maharajah playing polo in such trousers.
But what makes breeches extraordinary?
Breeches are characterized by high waistline and grip - short or long. A grip is an added reinforcement having a layer of suede, leather or silicone that goes far to the knees or over the whole leg. It assures greater tackiness, gluiness, gumminess in the seat, even so, the model of the breeches would depend on the rider’s choices.
Full grip breeches possess this additional strengthening on the inside of the trousers on the entire length of where the rider’s body fits the saddle - with the buttocks to calves. This specific version is specially preferred among dressage riders, who would rather ride at a trot or canter. Due to limited slippage and fine tackiness, gluiness, gumminess, they make it easier to stay in the seat.
Knee grip breeches possess the strengthening on the inner area of the knees. This model is very popular among jumping riders since it guarantees convenience of movements even at the cost of a minimal grip. It works at a trot and canter in half-seat.
Material for breeches
In order for breeches to become as sturdy as they can, they should be created from high-quality components. Fabric is chosen for a given season, so it is appropriately breathable, isolating, quick-dry, and simple to clear. The fabric must be slightly flexible and keep its structure even with a number of laundries.
