Why We Love This

Piper breeches are too fun to have just one! These are the original Piper breeches that started it all and there’s a reason they’re our best-selling breech. This style features a fashionable low-rise design that hits below the belly button for a modern look, as well as figure-flattering design elements like Euro seat styling and a 2” wide, contoured waistband that eliminates unsightly gapping. They also have knee patches made out of Clarino™, a synthetic, suede-like material that offers excellent grip, stretch, and durability. 

Like all of the Piper breeches, they come in a variety of fun color options, so you can show off your style in the schooling ring. The contrast stitching and pocket trim add just the right amount of flair to your riding ensemble. Plus, you can mix and match with the rest of our Piper collection to create the perfect schooling outfit to show off your style. You’ll feel as good as you look in the comfortable, four-way stretch fabric that moves with you in the saddle. Because we know that bunched breeches and bulky closures under boots can be super annoying, we’ve included an ergonomic elastic sock bottom that provides a streamlined, comfortable fit. Four pockets, including modern, jeans-style rear pockets, give you plenty of storage and can even accommodate most cell phones. Finally, these breeches are as easy to care for as they are to wear – just throw them in the wash and hang to dry. These Piper breeches have everything you’ve been looking for in a fun schooling breech. The only question is what color (or colors!) will you pick? 

Imported.

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Piper Breeches by SmartPak - Original Knee Patch is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1665.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute & comfortable! I really like these breeches! They are comfortable and wipe clean easily, and don't hold onto hair as I bought them during shedding season and it hasn't been too bad. At first I thought the back pockets were inconvenient, as they are shaped to avoid touching the saddle but I've gotten plenty of compliments on them and they do fit my iPhone 7. The only thing is that I wish they came in a short option, as I am 5'1 and the fabric bunches together around my ankles and puts some pressure on my skin. One thing that I don't see mentioned in a lot of reviews is that they have a VERY reinforced seam in the middle, which is amazing, because I hate when my breeches give me a cameltoe and these absolutely do not do that! Yay!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holes These have always been my go to and favorite breeches. I’ve got a little more in the trunk with wider hips and these fit me great. However after constant use, my now third pair as started to pill in the thigh region, and I’ve had to retire them completely now that the pilling has turned into holes. Another thing with these breeches is my zippers have gone as well with time, I have to use a small hair elastic to keep them up. It’s a shame, these breeches are so cute and comfortable, but do not last and therefore I can’t justify spending the price on them again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I really wanted to like these but the quality is awful. I bought these back in November and the zipper is defective, it won’t stay up. Also the stitching around one of the knee patching is coming apart. Also, lots of piling. For reference, I only ride for about an hour once a week and rotate my schooling breeches. Really disappointing how these are holding up given the price point.
    Date published: 2019-02-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pilling I bought two pairs during their Piper Sale and am in love with the fit, especially for us curvy gals. I have a small waist and wide hips and I sized down from my usual 30 to a 28. The length is perfect for me (I am 5'7"). I took off a star because they have pilled in the inner thigh area after wearing for the first time. I don't experience this with my high end breeches. The pipers are great for schooling which is what I intend to use them for.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fabric Puckers Badley I purchased 3 pair of these breeches over a 2 year period. Loved them at first, however 2 of the 3 pair are puckering along the back seam line, even though I follow laundering instructions. Very unflattering look! For this reason I will not purchase again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not holding up I have ridden in them once (walk, trot, some jumps) and the material on the inner thigh is already ruffed up and pulling. I usually really like this brand I own a bunch of them but I am really disappointed.
    Date published: 2018-10-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Breeches! I absolutely love these breeches. I would only change the tightness of the waist, but other wise they are fantastic! 100% recommend
    Date published: 2018-08-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and comfortable! My first ride in my Piper Breeches by SmartPak was a 13-mile trail ride on a horse I had never ridden before. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with the breeches, no rubs, very comfortable, and they are stylish as well. Sizing is true to the description, and I'm looking forward to many more miles in them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and afforable A really nice and affordable schooling breech. They are stretchy enough to be comfy and come in lots of colors.They look good on everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pair of riding pants! I own a few pairs now, LOVE these so much. Very comfortable, durable, they don't make me feel too hot in the FL sun, and they come in so many fun colors! Being a short woman I thought these would be too long like most things I buy and they weren't! I highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfortable Love these breeches. Everytime I ride I wear them to even just school in.
    Date published: 2018-07-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hype Worthy? These are my 3rd pair of Pipers and honestly they are the most underwhelming pair. Compared to my Piper King Knee Patch Breeches these are pretty average. They pill just as bad as my tan knee patch Pipers. I do not reach for these a lot as it has been hit in my area and these are not very breathable. I will say I am impressed that the back pocket can fit my iPhone 8+
    Date published: 2018-07-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best breeches I’ve ever ridden in! I’m so happy with these breeches! They are the most comfortable schooling breeches I’ve ever owned. Great colors. Only complaint is that it seems each color fits differently in the same size.
    Date published: 2018-07-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute breeches, not so great quality After exclusively wearing Kerrits tights, I decided to give Pipers a try. I was new to breeches sizing and went with a 26 (I wear a size 4 in most things). Initially they fit great and were super flattering until I got to the barn when I had to start yanking them up every few steps. The waist, which felt like it fit at first, gapped a good inch or so while I was riding. A belt may have helped, but I find them way too constricting and uncomfortable for me. I was also disappointed to notice—before I even made it to the barn—the stitching starting to come undone on one of the knee patches and on the fly as well. I noticed a handful of other reviewers having issues with quality as well, which kept me from exchanging them for another pair and trying to make the waist work despite the gapping issue. Overall, I really wanted to love these breeches and was bummed they didn’t work out, but I don’t think they are worth the price given the quality. Guess I’ll stick with my trusty Kerrits Flow Rise tights!
    Date published: 2018-07-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit Great! I like these breeches, I have a couple other pairs that I like wearing. However, they do fit a bit weird, and each pair fits a little differently from the others. Other than that, they are my favorite pair of breeches.
    Date published: 2018-07-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY ALL TIME FAVORITES I have 4 pairs of these breeches and they are my all time favorites. They fit me so well and are soooo flattering. I wear these everyday! And they're super durable. They don't tear when you fall or bust seams. They are stretchy and aren't super hot in the summer either. I'm 5'5" and I am curvy and have a fairly large butt and big thighs for my body but smaller calves and ankles. I fit perfectly in a 28R. These stretch where I need them too and stay snug all around. BEST BREECHES EVER!!!!
    Date published: 2018-06-26
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from LOW RISE, EVEN THOUGH REP TOLD ME NOT Several ladies in my barn wear these; so when I called to purchase I inquired about the fit. Was told these were NOT a low rise. But they are ! & very short in the crotch as well. I had to re=order 2 times to get correct fit, and they still feel like they will fall down.
    Date published: 2018-06-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good breeches, simply didn’t fit my body shape I bought these breeches and was very excited for them. When they came, they were very nice breeches and they seemed like they would be durable, but they sadly did not fit my body. I have very wide hips and thin legs, and these breeches are built for someone more evenly proportioned than I am.
    Date published: 2018-06-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable Fit I haven’t found a pair of breeches that I’ve truest loved but these were well worth it and fit me great!
    Date published: 2018-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Pipers!!! I love these breeches simply because of their value and the fun colors they come in. They fit pretty well however my only recommendation is to extend length to the plus sizes (38L, 40L, etc...). I’m very long legged and short waisted and although I love the low rise I also feel like I’m pulling them up more so than not. I still give them a 5 star rating!!!
    Date published: 2018-05-30
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing I bought a pair of the piper knee patch breeches, in the size I wear in every other brand. They were way to small, I even used the sizing chart. I was very disappointed
    Date published: 2018-05-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants I purchased the smartpak pants in charcoal with lilac detailing and i love them. Not only are they a VERY good price they last and are decent quality. My only complaint would be the waist not fitting well, it doesn't have much elastic so my belt has to be very tight to hold up the pants.
    Date published: 2018-05-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice I had a very positive experience with these breeches! these fit great, look absolutely stunning and are generally very comfortable. They are a thicker material, so not great for really hot days but it doesnt bother me! However the stitching is not the best, stitching around the zipper and pockets tend to loosen in the wash. I would buy again.
    Date published: 2018-05-21
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice breeches, fabric is slippery. Bought 2 pair last summer. I love the colors and they are super comfortable. However, I feel they are slippery in the saddle - maybe it's because the fabric is a bit thicker than most breeches.
    Date published: 2018-05-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable pants This is the first pair I bought and I love them!! Very comfortable to ride in and would definitely recommend these to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit! I bought these about 2 months ago in the wrong size and SmartPak was great with the return and exchange! After the size change, they fit amazing! I love the deep pockets, they are big enough to fit my phone in the front and back! They are super flattering and I love the great colors!
    Date published: 2018-04-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches!! These are durable and comfortable.. I like a higher rise and find that the original are actually more comfortable than the midrise I think because they have a wider band with 2 buttons instead of the one button with the midrise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Breeches This is my third pair and still love them! Love the fit and colors and that my phone fits in the back pocket!
