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'!).

The Ariat Performer Knee Patch Breech is a European slim fit breech in a naturally breathable fabric with slanted zip front pockets, mid-rise and Core Control tummy support for a flattering look in and out of the saddle.

Machine Wash Cold, Hang Dry. No Bleach.

    Ariat® Performer Knee Patch Breech-Side Zip is rated 3.7143 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches for the price! These are great breeches for the price! They are comfortable and look great. As other reviewers have noted, I think they do run a little bit small. I ordered one size up and they're perfect (and my "regular" size is sometimes a little tight). I can't say how they'll hold up long term, as I haven't had them very long, but they seem to be very well made.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable but HOT in summer heat I truly love the fit of these breeches. I've never owned a pair of Ariat breeches or low rise and was worried. They fit great! They do stretch out a bit if worn a couple of times between washes, but nothing that is too terrible.My only complaint is that they do not breath. So if you live in a warmer climate (I'm in Michigan and it's been a cool summer!) you may want to find something more breathable. I also notice that the sweat spots stain the breeches. I had worn them maybe 3-4 times before the first wash, and the sweat spots came out looking dirty and dingy. They are machine washable, which is what I did, so maybe I need to handwash problem areas.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with these breeches I used to love Ariat breeches but I had to return these. They were advertised as mid rise but they were low rise. I am frustrated that Ariat does not make any regular waisted breeches any more. These breeches were way small (I ordered the size I always order in Ariats). They were as I said, very low rise and short in the legs. I am not very tall so if someone ordered these that was over 5'6", I can't imagine how short they woujld be. I won't be ordering any more Ariat breeches because this is the 3rd pair I have tried in the last year without any success or satisfaction. These manufacturers really need to get together and agree on sizes for show clothes. As a consumer, I am tired of guessing whether to order big or small with hunt coats and breeches and shirts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Riding Pants Love Ariat's fabric, but these do run small, order up a size and you will be set. Never dissapointed with Ariat, they wear and wash great. Use these for schooling and in-house shows.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but very small These are nice breeches, but, I was disappointed when I tried them on. They run very small. I ordered the same size that I wear in my TS and I would need about 2 sizes bigger in these. They are also very short. The quality seems great and they would, no doubt, be awesome breeches for the more petite ladies. Not for us ladies with hips and rears!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Breech for the money I bought two pair, one tan and one navy. I bought two size 26 and found I needed a smaller size, so I returned them for a size 24. They fit pretty well, and look good on, and I get compliments.However, they feel like they are being pulled down a little when I ride, unless I wear a belt to secure's sort of an odd feeliing, but not a big problem. I have thin thighs and small hips and a thick waist relative to my thighs and hips, so maybe my build contibutes to the breeches fitting the way they do.The fabric is nice quality and very suitable to California winters as well as hot weather. I love the euro seat. The tan and the navy are both attractive colors.The two pockets in front are at a slight slant and have hidden zippers.So,they look great on, are well made, are made of good quality stretchy fabric, have great design, are well priced, run a liitle large, and are easy to care for.

    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...
