We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.
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 Olympia Low Rise Front Zip Breeches exemplifies a merger of  European features and Ariat fabric technology.  Schoeller fabric bonds a breathable stretch fabric to comfortable cotton twill creating a material that is durable, weather resistant, and retains its fit and shape even after long rides.

Favorite Features

  • Schoeller-prestige four-way stretch fabric provides exceptional freedom of movement, breathability, and stretch
  • Patented V3™ fit system utilized an elastic "V" panel built into the back waistband to delivery superior stretch and recovery so breeches always have the right fit and performance 
  • Calf Fit System™ accommodates any leg shape and secures without bulky closures to provide an exceptionally smooth, irritation-free fit under tall boots
  • Stretch Clarino knee patches
  • Euro seat provides superior grip in the saddle
  • Trendy low-rise waist

    Ariat® Olympia Front Zip Low Rise Euro Seat is rated 4.6316 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Breeches Ever I bought a light tan pair for showing and ended up loving them so much, I have a second pair for schooling as well.  If I could afford it, I would have a closet full of them.  The fit is comfortable and flattering.  The fabric is durable and supportive but still soft and mobile.  I wondered if they would be worth the price and they absolutely are!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great fabric weird fit I tried these because a good friend at my barn has them and they look great. However while the fabric was great the fit was just off for me. Worth a try if they fit they are awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches These are great breeches. I had always had Tailored Sportsman breeches and these are even better! I love the calf fit system and the fabric is very high quality. I have very long legs so they were a little short but otherwise they fit just perfect. I just got these breeches so I can't comment on durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Worth every penny.  I have always owned Tailored Sportsman breeches, but decided to try instead and it was the best decision ever.  The fit is perfect and I'm a little curvy.   I originally bought to show in only, but now I ride in them 5+ days a week.  I've had them now for over a year and a half and they are a little darker than they used to be but that is the only thing that has changed.  I'm super hard on theses breeches and they have held up better than I'd hoped.  I highly recommend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new fav I've always wore pikuer and thought it couldn't get better. Love that there's no Velcro because now I can wash without fear of attachment. Feels great on and they are flattering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit I love these breeches! They are easy to care for, actually fit in the waist and while they are low-rise they come up enough so your show shirt doesn't un-tuck. I highly recomend them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Tailored Sportsman I really like these breeches. I bought a pair of these and a pair of Tailored Sportsman at the same time. I have to say that if the Ariat's came in more colors, I probably wouldn't have bought the TS breeches! I really like the pockets on the front and the euro seat. The fit is great, super comfy. What makes it better than the Tailored Sportsman breeches, in my opinion, is that these have a stretch panel on the bottom instead of velcro at the ankle so they're way comfier. Definitely recommend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SHOW PANTS EVER These pants are amazing. I am 5'5 and 110 pounds and the size 24 fits me perfectly. These pants are very well made, great to ride in, and very flattering. I am going to buy these pants from now on. Perfect every day riding pants yet flashy enough to wear at a AA rated show!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice euroseat breech If you like the style of the Pikeurs but prefer something cheaper, these are a good alternative. The cut and styling are great and they're very comfortable. For me they seem to run more slim in the hip/thigh than the Ariat All Circuit and Ariat Pro Circuit. The fabric seems good but it's too early to see how well they'll hold up in the long run.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Super comfortable and great fitting; love the euro seat. A little pricey but worth the splurge.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy show breeches I have been wearing Ariat Pro Circuit Low Rise show pants for years. Both for schooling and show and really love the way they hold up - I just throw them in the washer and dryer and after several years they still look crisp enough for shows.I compete frequently so I was excited to try these pants since the continental seat and front zip are more popular now.These are even more comfortable than the Pro Circuits with a softer, stretchier fabric and more flattering fit! I am small (5'1") and muscular and the 22R fits me nearly perfectly, they are a bit long but not uncomfortably so, and the knee patches come up high enough to reach where I need them.It's too soon to know how they'll tolerate my long-term abusive laundering treatment, but I've washed them a couple of times and they come out great.
