From Endurance to Dressage
I already reviewed these breeches earlier this year, but I've since bought them in white and wanted to do a follow up review. Short story - LOVE THEM!
They were more comfortable than a broke in pair of jeans. As I mentioned last month, I do think they run a bit small, so I ordered up a size. They don't sag, creep up, or bind in any way.
The full seat is gray, which is super smart since our saddles are black, and it moved right along with me. In fact, I forgot that I was wearing full seats. Some full seats can be too thick and stiff. These are not.
From the Riding Warehouse's website:
Flattering and affordable, the Ovation Euroweave DX Celebrity Fullseat Breeches are made from stretchy, woven fabric enhanced with Dry-Lex™ technology to ensure maximum comfort for long hours in the saddle.
I ordered both of mine, the pewter and the white, from the Riding Warehouse. They also now come in Monaco blue. They're listed at $98.95, but as luck would have it, Riding Warehouse is having a 15% off sale that ends today.
I am so tempted ...

Welcome to my dressage journey.
