Why We Love This

Piper breeches are too fun to have just one! This style features a Mid-rise waist, so if you’re looking for a fun schooling breech with a little more coverage, these are the breeches for you. They also have figure-flattering design elements like Euro seat styling and a 1.5" contoured waistband that eliminates gapping as well as 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?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pants!!!!! I bought two pairs of these pants about two weeks ago, and I love them! I got the dapple grey and black with spearmint, and they look exactly like the pictures! They also stay up when I ride, and don't slip at all! They are 100% eventer/jumper proof!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed :( Bought this last month...really wish I got a bigger size, its tight on the hips (my hips have a 12 inch difference from my waist) its quite disappointing that after 7-8 rides a tear appeared at the knee patch appeared so I had to give up using them even though they're practically brand new.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing is small I have other Piper breeches that I love and run true to size so I thought I was eighth order more. I get them and can barely pull them up my legs. I take a measuring tape and the waist is 5 inches smaller than the size. I will be returning these. They are pretty though....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fit It's rare for me to find breeches that fit and don't cost a fortune. I have tried many brands, usually if they fit in the waist the are too loose in the legs. So when these arrived I was pleasantly surprised that they not only fit, but are quite attractive! They are comfortable while riding, and wash well. I ended up ordering 4 pairs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mid ride is almost hipster! I was SO excited to receive these beautiful 30" R breeches. I am a size 8 jean/dress size. 5'3" Unfortunately they are 2" below my naval, were tight to do up but the legs were quite loose and not conforming to my 140 pound body.. When ordering Smart Pack paisley sticky pants I had to re order a 28" and they are still quite large on me but waist fits at the natural waistline. Super slim women look great in hipsters. Those of us with a little bit of a tummy appear to have a beer belly which is most unflattering Many of my riding friends are looking for the natural waistline pants to return to fashion! Love these pants on my younger slimmer friends!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thread coming undone I bought these a bit ago and 1 i got the wrong size and that was probably my fault but what isn’t my fault is the fact that the thread is coming undone in multiple places. I love these breeches because they’re so cute but i just wish the quality and durability was better so I will not be buying them again sadly

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to love - fit has changed I've owned three or four pairs of these breeches over the past several years and have loved everything about them, but when I reordered a new pair in the same size in May to replace a pair I rode through, I was very disappointed in how they fit; they were nice through the leg/hip/butt, but the waistband was oddly non-stretchy and seemed way smaller than the material immediately below in the hip area. I was able to zip and close the hook, but the waistband pulled terribly around the closure and the zipper was visible/gapping. I returned the first pair for the size up, thinking perhaps it was a production error and an extra inch or two on the waistband might fix the issue, but the exact same problem persisted; the breeches fit great below the waistband, but it was almost as if the closure hook was incorrectly placed to make it too tight. Disappointed to lose what was one of my favorite breech offerings.

    Date published: 2019-06-11
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for the plus size rider I liked the fabric, but the rise was too low to be comfortable for a plus size rider. I usually buy Kerrits 1x and the rise is sufficient. These breeches needed about 2 inches more rise front and back to fit properly. I had to return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved them! The Pipers feel so nice!When I was riding I forgot I was wearing them!They fit very well. For someone who is short (5'2) the regular length barely bunches at the bottom of my ankles. Thank you Smartpak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit on a less-than-great bod After 3 kids and 30 years, started riding again (for pleasure). Had to try several items before I found a good fit for 5’9, slim but burdened with ‘spare tire’ physique. Bought 6 items total, kept two.The return policy is fantastic; they communicate extremely well; an Email when they received the return, and another when they processed/issued a credit to my card. Very happy with customer service. The breeches fit great in the saddle and don’t ‘roll down’ below my problem area. No chafing anywhere.They wash well, and have stayed stretchy and nice. Too soon to evaluate durability. Too soon to give 5 stars- but if they hold up well, I’ll definitely purchase a couple more. The price is good for this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not love the fit - want a higher rise I have several pairs of the standard "low" rise piper breeches. I actually prefer a higher rise so when I saw these I was thrilled. However when I got them the rise was really no higher. The waistband is much narrower so the rise actually hits me in the same spot. And the front is not as smooth as the wide waist band style.
    Date published: 2018-07-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering! These are my favorite breeches that I own! They fit me better than the original pipers and I really like the rise. Great colors also!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Favorite I usually hate any kind of pants other than leggings (I’m not sure why, but jeans are the worst invention to me), so buying breeches instead of riding tights was a big step for me. I purchased these and they are amazing, fit perfectly, so flattering, and super cute. One thing I will say is that you need to wear a belt, they will slide down without one. Just ordered two more pairs, can’t wait! The only complaint I have is that my size (38) is the size that stops coming in longs, and I’m 5’11 so they sit a little short. I just wear longer socks and I’m completely fine. Never wearing and other breeches!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and super Cute I love these breeches. Super comfortable, stretchy enough and fabulous navy blue. I traded a 26 for a 24 and they fit perfect. I really like the stretch around the ankle and just the overall cute look.
    Date published: 2018-04-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit Perfectly! I bought these a few weeks ago and they’re already my new favorite riding pants. They’re comfortable, stylish, and fit amazingly. I’m so glad I found them and I plan an buying another pair!
    Date published: 2018-03-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid rise is awesome. True to size. The mid-rise Piper is my favorite breech. The fabric, fit, sock bottom, cool color choices...all make for a great addition to my riding wardrobe. I tried the regular Pipers with the low rise and they just didn’t fit as well. These were the perfect solution and I’m so pleased. Thank you SmartPak for making great breech options for all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great riding pant I bought these for my granddaughter as she is an experienced rider needing the right outfit for dressage and other equestrian activities. She will return them for another size but is very pleased with style, color and quality.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute and Affordable but need some improvement I took advantage of the buy 2 get one free sale recently, and got three different pairs of the piper line. I read they run small so I ordered a size up (26) I usually wear 24 in Romfhs. I found all three fit differently and were a bit big so exchanged for 24, which also fit inconsistently among styles. The front fly construction isn’t well done, the zipper gaps at the top even when not under stress. The two hook closure is better than the single hook, don’t remember which style had which. On the positive side, the colors are cute, the fabric is pretty stretchy and comfortable, and feels good to wear. Have only washed once so far so not sure how they will hold up. Overall good for schooling and around the barn!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and well made I bought two pair and will definitely buy more. So comfy and thick enough for cold weather.
    Date published: 2017-12-04
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nope, I'm going to stick with the low-rise I thought I'd give these a try because I'm a huge fan of the regular Piper low-rise breech but thought I'd like the mid-rise. Nope. I don't feel like they are nearly as flattering. The waistband is narrower and has a single hook closure instead of the double hook/wider waistband of the Piper low-rise. The zipper seems to pull and gap just under the waistband as well, making the breech less comfortable and less flattering, at least on me. I'm going to return them and have ordered this color (grey/turqouise), which I love, in the low-rise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy After having weird shipping of the the Original Knee Patch Pipers with one coming with 2 buttons and one coming with 1 button. I finally learned in one of the SmartPak magazines that the Original Knee Patch Pipers are suppose to have 2 buttons and the Mid Rise Knee Patch Pipers are supposed to have 1 button. I decided I like the Mid Rise Knee Patch Pipers. Getting on with the point, I love these breeches, they are so comfy. I do tend to find that I have to pull these up once in a while, but I think it is just because of my body type. I even wear the tan ones to shows since the piping gets hidden from the show coat. I would totally recommend these breeches to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches These breeches are made with fabric that feels very durable. I like the snug fit at the bottom of the legs that allows them to fit comfortably into tall boots. The colorful trim is really fun.
