We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Ariat Performer Full Seat Breech is a versatile front-zip, mid-rise performance breech designed for competition or schooling. Made from a nylon cotton-twill blend with four-way stretch for a dynamic fit that works with you while riding.

Favorite Features

  • Four-way stretch fabric
  • Comfortable midrise style
  • V3 Waist Technology holds the fit during active riding
  • Core Control offers support and a secure, slimming fit
  • Calf Fit System (CFS) supports the lower leg and eliminates bulking and irritation under tall boots
  • Synthetic suede full-seat

    Ariat® Performer Full Seat Breeches - Front Zip is rated 3.913 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting and performing breeches I bought these breeches about a month ago, because I liked the fit (very slimming) and the single zip pocket. They wash well and wear well, in fact so well that I bought a second pair.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have several pairs of these and love them, but this time they were a bit too small so I sent them back. Not sure why??

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Breech I just got these breeches in white, size 24. They fit great! They are my show breeches so I haven't gotten a chance to ride in them yet but I can already tell I am going to love them in the saddle. They are thick enough and of high quality to know that they are going to be very durable.. The only thing I am not quite a fan of though is I do like to wear the FITS Wunderbreech under show pants and because of this you can faintly tell where the pockets in the breech end, but with bare legs under it is just fine and even in my situation my show coat covers it just fine and you'd never know. They are a great rise too. I am not a fan of low rise at all, When I first put them on I was regretting not trying to find a high rise breech but as soon as I put my belt on it completely eliminated the problem! (I should't be riding without a belt anyways!) This is a no brainer pair of breeches for the serious equestrian, I was a little anxious about how expensive they were but they are totally worth it!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The other poor fit reviews are right I ignored the other reviews, and wish I had not. These breeches run very small. I ordered a size up and they were still snug (my pair is going back and not to be replaced, but in hindsight I would recommend +2 sizes up). They also run short, with the slightly low rise, and the too small calf, it's hard to say exactly what the problem is; these breeches are just weirdly proportioned. I am 5'7" and 125lbs, and tried a size 30. I am keeping the Ariat Heritage Front Zip Euro that I ordered at the same time in the same size - they fit better than these (although still not exceptional...c'mon Ariat! You used to be a brand I trusted).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love these... I love Ariat products! But unfortunately these breeches did not work out for me. Like most breeches, they run small; these really seemed to run very small, especially in the calf area. I returned the first size I bought for the next size up, and the next pair I received fit better, but they were still too small. I would have returned them for a second time, but I was in a time crunch and decided to purchase another brand elsewhere.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful But Tight in the Knee These breeches are super flattering. They fit me great in the waist and the rise is just right on me - I'm 5'4" and like them to hit on my hip bones - and they do. They also fit great in the thigh. So far, so good, right?Unfortunately, these breeches are strangely tight in the knee. And of all of my body parts I may not be happy with, my knees were never one of them. I really wanted to buy these, but I just felt like they wouldn't be comfortable in the knee.(I had the same issue with the new Tredstep breeches, so maybe I do have big knees...)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love but couldn't I wanted to love these breeches so badly that I exchanged them twice. I am now at two sizes above my normal size and they are still bordering uncomfortably snug. The stitching on the full seat is coming out in a few places. I love the way the material looks and feels BUT if you work at a barn (not just ride but clean stalls, groom, etc...) they attract dirt and dust like crazy. After 20 minutes at the barn they are very dirty. I wish I could say I love these, but they just aren't right for me!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the same I have bought many breeches from Ariat and for some reason, Ariat has decided to change the "fit". I'm 5'3" size 6 and a I could barley get a 30R (my previous Ariat size) over my thighs! and I have even lost so weight. I was extremely disappointed! Sent these breeches right back!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
