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'!).

    Piper Plus Knee Patch Breeches by SmartPak is rated 4.3235 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Pipers I bought these a month ago and love them! I am fuller size and have not had to 'hike' them up every so often. I have gotten complements on them at the barn. They do pill a little in the thigh area, but it doesn't seem to be worsening after several rides and washes. I can't wait to order more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very stylish, but NOT so fabulous fit! FINALLY POCKETS!!! Yay! I have to say I love, love, love the style of these. They are also well made for the price. I have bigger legs though and was a bit disappointed with the fit. Saw other reviews that said they ran small, so I ordered a size up from what I usually wear. WAY too tight in the legs. Returned for larger size which fit in the legs but is hopelessly HUGE in the waist. I live in breeches, so we'll see how they hold up. It's so difficult to find breeches that fit in the leg and the waist that actually have real pockets (and these have 4)! Probably will keep and spend a few extra $$$ to get them altered. Must lower front waist band and have it taken way in. Rise is high and horrible gaping in the back. :/

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality construction, subpar fit. I love the style and look of these breeches, and finding anything in my size is pretty hard, so I will likely end up buying more. The only problem is that the company doesn't seem to grasp that someone who wears a size 40 is not going to be shaped exactly like someone who wears a 28. These things really need to be redesigned to accommodate the hips and behinds of people who aren't built like 12 year old boys. If I go down a size, they're way, way too tight in the hips, thighs, and calves. The size that fits me everywhere else is way too big in the waist. Yes, I can wear a belt, but I'd rather have breeches that fit correctly, especially for the price I paid.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish they came in a long I love these breeches and I wish I could have a pair in every color but they are too short for me from the knee to the hip and they sag down, even with a belt they sag down :( I wish they would make them in a long!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First pair ever! I usually ride in jeans, but was looking for something more comfortable. I've found it. Ordered two pairs to see how they fit and I was very satisfied with the pair I purchased according to my waist size. Now I'll be back looking for something like these but a little bit cooler for the hot, humid Georgia summers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So excited! I've finally sprung for breeches that cost more than I usually spend so I was really concerned about the quality and fit, but I have to say I love these! They look and feel so good. I wear a 16 in regular women's clothing and I ordered a 40 in these plus size pants. They fit really well and they are so stylish. Let's see how they hold up to riding. They appear to be very nice quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and colorful, few complaints I just ordered 3 pairs of the Pipers last week and think they're very cute. Unfortunately, I sent two pairs back (one for an exchange), because while they weren't necessarily too small, the waist in the back was lower than I would prefer (the front of the waist band is at my belly button). The pair I kept was a size larger, and seemed to help some with this issue. The breeches have great stretch to them which helps getting in/out of the saddle, but on the flip side, they also stretch out and/or a little in the waist. I'm forced to wear a belt with them, which is fine, but I'd prefer not to have to wear one unless I want to. The waist also gaps a little, but I might resign myself to visiting my local tailor to see if they can throw some darts in there or something.Overall, I'm happy with them so far. I'd be thrilled if they would design these with the waist a little higher in the back, but keep the front the same. I think I'm more of a mid-rise breech girl, but I simply can't afford to have too many pairs of the TS mid-rise breeches which normally fit me pretty well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I bought a pair to use as show breeches, the minute they arrived I turned around and ordered 2 other pairs for schooling in. Love the durability, the fabric is sturdy and you know your going to get alot of miles out of these. I like the legs breathability and its nice to have a variety of colors.

    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...
