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'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How could you not love these pants? Super comfy, good fit, they go in the washing machine. The colors are great, although I'd prefer the piping to be a bit more muted. Unfortunately I've had the stitching come loose at the knee patches and the crotch pills, but despite that I still love these pants!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pants! I bought a couple pair of these riding pants last year, and loved them so much I ordered more this year! They are still nice looking and fit perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these breeches Great fit and lots of fun colors. Only negative is one a couple pairs of my breeches the stitching started to come out after just a couple rides. but this hasn't happened on al the breeches so it might just be a fluke. Would only buy these breeches when they are on sale because of this defect that has happened on a few of the pairs I have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So. Comfy. Omg. I bought these pants about a month ago. They are so comfortable, have the right amount of stretch, and felt good while riding.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breeches don't fully zip Although these are some of my got to breeches they don't fully zip! There is always a little space and I definitely have the right size. Also after a couple of washes it starts to pill. These are great breeches for the price, but I would recommend spending a little more to get a nicer breech.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Breeches I've Ever Worn I'm 5'2, 114 lb. and the 30R fit me so perfectly that I worn them out of the store and for the rest of the day, and every time I wear them I get complimented on how good the look.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love everything but.... I bought these breeches about 2 months ago got my daughter. They arrived on time and were in perfect condition. The color was great and my daughter loved them but the only problem was they weren't true to the size. I ordered a 24R expecting like they would fit like all her other pairs of breeches but when she tried them on they had a pretty big waist nothing a belt cant fix though!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute! I have two of these, after I won a discount code for them as a prize. They are a good breech, pretty comfortable, with really cute colors. I love the pocket on the back. I wish the seam along the euro seat stitching was elastic, looks very awkward when sitting sometimes. The waistband is a bit awkwardly large in comparison to the rest of the breech, but I just wear a belt and it's fine. The quality is okay. Not great for hot places, as these are very thick. These are not my favorite breeches, but they are great if you don't want to spend too much money!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy! I have only been wearing pipers for 2 months and I already own three pair! Very flattering and extremely comfortable. If fact I often wear them as jeans. The only down side is the stitching on the knee patch becomes loose easily.
    Date published: 2016-12-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Regular is great for short riders! I now own two pairs of these breeches and I love them! I have a pair of the maroon and grey and the taupe w/ mint. I've had one pair for over a year and they're still going strong, where my other breeches will start to wear on the inner thigh area there is very little wear on these. I love them because the regulars are perfect for short riders, there isn't any extra fabric at the bottom which is a surprise because I'm very short and regulars are usually too long for me in other brands. Everybody I know who has these absolutely loves them, the colors are super fun as well!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Material, Odd fit I bought these breeches in a dark brown because they were on sale and everyone at my barn has a pair. I looked at a lot of reviews saying that they run small, so I got a 26l instead of a 24l. The 26l is tight around my calves and thighs, but were sooooo loose around my waist and very baggy around my knee. I really like the material, and if I ordered a 24l I think it would be fine, but the waist part is very difficult, and a belt doesn't help much.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from fitted weird i did not like these pants the where not true to size they were very loses in the knees i did not like the feel the were very thick i like pants like the kerrits pants i think those are great pant and you should buy from smartpak i thought the stitching ripped very quick and the pants were not tight and they are not good for me but lots of people love them but they just don't work for me

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not ideal for curvy riders I'm 5'9", 165 lbs, and my butt and thighs are curvy. These pants seem to be cut very straight, so even though the size 32 fit my legs and butt, they gaped very badly at the waist. I got a long, and the length was good. I assumed these would probably stretch a little more after being worn, so I just decided to cut my losses and return them. They are super cute, but just not flattering for my body type.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Breeches This is my 3rd pair of these breeches and I love them. I especially love the back pocket so I can put my phone there instead of always putting it down and losing it. They are so comfortable too! LOVE THEM!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable and flattering! I needed to go a size down, so that was wonderful. Upon wearing very durpable and flattering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best breeches EVER I just got these pants and to test them out, I went for a 2 mile run in them (Instead of taking my dog for a run, I take my horse. It happens). These pants didn't slide down my waist or get in the way once. They fit me better than any pants I've ever had on and I'm honestly obsessed. They fit pretty true to size, if not a TAD small. They go on sale all the time, so I only paid $50 for them. It was a great buy, I'm super stoked.
