As with riding breeches, it is largely a matter of taste whether you choose knee-breeches or full seat riding leggings. Knee breeches offer more freedom of movement when riding. They are therefore often preferred by show jumpers or for cross-country riding. On the other hand, there are riders who first tried riding with knee breeches, then went on to try a full breech model and have only wanted to use full breeches ever since. Riding leggings with full seat offer a greater stability in the saddle. Another "question of faith" is the material used for the seat. It can be leather, artificial leather or silicone. The adhesive properties of all three materials are similarly good. However, although leather is more durable, it is also more difficult to maintain. Most riding leggings can be machine washed inside out. However, the washing temperature should not exceed 40°C.
If you are a recreational rider, you can follow your personal taste on this one. If you hate sweatpants, you will certainly not feel comfortable in riding leggings. However, the longer you ride in breeches or riding leggings, the more you will appreciate the comfort of riding leggings. Riding leggings are usually cheaper than breeches. In summer, the usually lighter fabric of riding leggings is more comfortable than the heavier fabric of riding breeches. On the other hand, in winter you are more likely to be comfortable wearing winter riding breeches than winter riding leggings. When it comes to competition gear, however, you should be more careful. At least for dressage competitions, riding leggings are not recommended, even if they are white. Dressage judges are very conservative. It can be a real disadvantage for you if you compete in riding leggings instead of breeches.
