We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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 Heritage Knee Patch Breech is a traditionally styled breech for every-day schooling yet versatile enough for competitions.  The comfortable cotton-blend fabric has ergonomic, four-way stretch so you stay comfortable in the saddle. 

Favorite Features

  • Stretchy cotton-blend fabric
  • Calf Fit System allows your boots to fit comfortably over your breeches and reduces bulk
  • Synthetic knee patches protect and provide a secure grip
  • Low-rise with a Euro seat
  • Side zip style

    Ariat® Heritage Knee Patch Breech-Side Zip is rated 3.8214 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average fit and average quality I tried a 26L and it was way too small but the 28L is a little big and gapes in the back so a belt will be a necessity. The fabric isn't like the really modern breeches fabrics that I have found but are a nice show breech. The long still isn't as long as I would like either. I am 5'7" and 116 pounds just for reference. I tried a Tredstep breech as well. Much nicer, more modern fabric but the fit was poor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great breeches! I just got these breeches in. They're my first side zips. They fit about the same as my front zip ariats. Very comfortable. I really like the fabric. It is a little thicker than some other brands. Which is good because I am always cold! I guess the calves are just a smidge tight and the waste a little loose but that is just the way I'm built. I'll probably save them for showing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice for the price I bought these as a cheaper alternative to buying more TS. I haven't ridden in them yet but I plan to only school in them, they are not the best material for showing. Though it is *almost* the same material as TS, it's slightly thicker and less slick. I don't like the bottom of them much, as the calves fit tight (I even wear a "slim" calf tall boot and these are still tight). I love side zip and it seems very confurtable. My main problem with these is that the crotch is a little low and baggy, which means I have to tug the breeches up by the knees in order for the crotch to be correct and rideable in. This however, kind of takes away from the point of "low rise". Other than that they are very comfy and fit me well, though a little short (I am 15, 5'7", 115 lbs and got a size 24R(should have gotten long)).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You must be kidding me DO NOT BUY UNTIL REFERRING TO THE SIZING CHART. A size 30L is for a woman with 19" HIPS!!! All of my Ariat breeches are 30L, and they all fit. The 34 was too small in this breech. And Ariat does not respond to emails regarding the sizing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches for schooling or shows I love these breeches. They are super comfortable and durable. I show a lot and love that you can wash these and they keep up their shape and continue to look great in the show ring. This is my second pair, one for each day of the show! Great buy and not too expensive!

    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...
