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 3 out of 5 by from Great fabric and made with quality I love the fabric and the quality of the breeches. I'm sad to say though that the fit is a little awkward. It's made for an apple shape not a pear or an hour glass. I had to order up a size then what the size chart says. After getting a different size it now fits my thighs and hips but there is a huge gap around my waist. I'm going to try a belt first but if it still looks too baggy or keeps falling down I'll have to get them tailored. It does bunch around my knees some because I'm short and the legs of the breeches are just a little too long. I wish they would make this breech with a short option and a smaller waist with still keeping the extra room in the hips and thighs. Other than that they look great and are flattering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Breeches anywhere! My daughter is 16 yrs old and loves these breeches better than anything she has ever ridden in. They are comfortable, great quality and they look so good with the piping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy and cute colors! I bought these a while back because I was riding English more and more, and was sick of wearing jeans! I do think they run a little big, I think I would even order a size smaller for my next pair. Love the color selection!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Color Variety I really enjoy these breeches. It's a great color selection with a modern look for the larger sizes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and breathable I live in Florida and was looking for something sturdier (ie, less likely to develop holes after only a few wears and washes!) than lightweight schooling tights, but also comfortable in the heat. I had heard good things about the Pipers from several people, so I bought them.I've ridden in them twice now, and I absolutely love them! They are really comfortable and flattering. They also breathe really well in the heat, even though the fabric feels pretty heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pockets!! This is the second pair of Piper Plus Knee Patch Breeches that I purchased. The main things that made me a repeat-buyer - real pockets front and back, and sized for my apple-shaped body. The first pair seems to be holding up well so I'm expecting the same for this pair. Seems to run big in the waist, but not the legs (again - good for my apple shape.) The very first pair I bought, I had to return for the next smaller size, and I appreciate the return policy. Appreciate the color variety.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice fabric not sure on the fit The quality of the construction and fabric is great and the price is nice. The only thing I am not sold on is how low they ride in the back. I even went up a size to fit it so now the waist is huge but they still ride low and I feel like I am going to look like a plumber. They do the same on a friend of mine. Need to wear a long shirt with this one but again the price is right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These are super cute and just about the best fitting breeches I've ever had. I wish they would make a pair without piping for shows too. Can't wait to get more colors!

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I ordered these breeches a couple of weeks ago and they came quickly in the mail. The navy blue is a great color and goes well with everything! I have only wore them to one lesson but they were so comfortable to ride in. The sock calf bottom is a great feature and makes it much easier to wear my tall boots. Would definitely recommend these to anyone!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the breeches not the color I have multiple pairs of Pipers in different colors. This time I got the military green. And am not as impressed with the color. I plan on sending them back and getting another pair of the navy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great plus-size breeches for the price! I'm so happy I tried the Piper! The fit is pretty good, the material feels great, and the extra features are a hit (so cute)! Finding breeches for curvy gals can be a trial, but the Piper lives up to expectations. I would suggest going up 1 size for curvier riders--I needed more room in the hip/thigh area, which made the waist a little big (but nothing a good belt couldn't take care of). Fabric seems pretty sturdy, but soft & comfy to ride in, and yet supportive to not show all the "bumps". I like the trim details--even the pockets have an ultrasuede partial liner!--and the stretch calves are nice. I bought the charcoal color, which is a little more brownish in person, but it's a good look! I'm looking forward to purchasing more pairs in the other colors! Just wish they made a Piper Plus in a show-ready breech...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not a curvy girl fit. I bought these for showing in last summer. I am too large in the hips and thighs for regular ladies, but average in the waist. I bought these breeches in a 38. They gapped terribly in the waist and were very snug all the way down my legs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from out of proportion Ok, so I'm a plus size. I'm not horribly out of proportion. These breeches were so tight at the bottom (elastic around ankles), that I couldn't have pulled them up high enough without cutting off the circulation in my calves. It's like the bottom elastic was from a skinny size 6. Returned them.
