Riding tights or leggings are more comfortable than riding breeches. Leggings (sometimes called "reggings" as a combination of riding and leggings) have no zips, buttons or belt loops. Riding tights are easy to put on quickly and they fit your body like a second skin. Riding tights are as comfortable as joggers but look much better. For riders who spend many hours in their Jodhpurs or breeches, the comfort offered by riding tights is hard to argue with. Riding breeches, on the other hand, are the classic option, so you should choose them for tournaments. Show judges are usually extremely conservative and in dressage competitions, at the very least, the appearance of the rider is also taken into account - possibly even subconsciously. You should therefore stay on the safe side and choose a pair of riding breeches.
Riding tights have become so popular so quickly because they are extremely comfortable. The fabric used for riding tights is very elastic. As a result, these riding trousers fit the body like a second skin. Riding tights for women are extremely comfortable to wear, especially in summer. The elastic fabric riding tights are made of is very lightweight and breathable, preventing heavy sweating. In summer, the resulting airy fit is very pleasant. Like riding breeches in general, riding leggings are available in a full seat and a knee patch version. Thermal leggings are also available for winter. All ladies' riding tights and leggings are made of breathable, quick-drying fabrics. When it comes to women's riding tights, there is a huge variety of colours and styles to choose from, guaranteed to suit all tastes and budgets.
Due to their light weight and airy fit, riding tights are very comfortable to wear, especially in summer. They are lightweight and breathable. These advantages are somewhat more pronounced in knee patch riding tights than in those with a full seat. The extremely stretchy material of riding tights also has moisture wicking properties. The stretchy, hard-wearing seams in riding tights ensure that you always look good while wearing them. Ankle cuffs ensure that the leggings or tights always fit properly. Thanks to the extremely stretchy material, riding tights also adapt perfectly to the size of the rider. Since you sweat more in the summer, the fact that riding leggings are hardwearing and can be washed time and time again without fading is an additional plus. They can be machine washed at up to 40°C without any problems. However, riding tights should not be put in the dryer, but should be allowed to air dry.
