I am in New England where we had historic snow and sub zero temps this winter and your FITS WindPro were my staple not just for riding but for any outside activity (barn chores,  shoveling snow, chopping ice off the roof, snow shoeing, walking the dog etc).  I have owned FITS breeches for 7 years...my original slate breeches are just nearing the end of their functionality. I currently own a few other pairs for schooling and show and am not a wealthy person. I just recognize their value & comfort and save so I can add to my collection when I can afford to. Thanks for creating such a fantastic, enduring comfortable breech! Betsy Leavitt

"Hi to my friends at FITS! Thank you for the most comfortable training wear and show pants I've ever owned." love, Beth Maitland DramaqueenBee The Young And the Restless

 I have been a fan of the FITS breeches since I tried my first pair years ago, but the new models just came out, and guess what? They are even better! No kidding! Everyone who wants to ride comfortably owes it to themselves to try a pair. Then you can decide just how comfortable you want to be when riding. The bonus plan is that their long sleeve show shirts and new reversible belts make putting a COMFORTABLE and fashionable riding outfit together a piece of cake. This picture shows last years model of breech because I do not have photos of the new ones yet . Thank you FITS for always trying to create the best riding gear ever!

From WEG Endurance rider Meg Sleeper:  "I doubt you monitor our weather out here but it was cold and nasty from Wednesday through the weekend. Since it was a holiday, I spent as much of the time as possible riding (unfortunately footing wasn’t good, so not nearly as much riding as I wanted to). However, I ADORE the new FITS WIND PRO riding pants. I could have ridden all day in the freezing weather with how comfy they are (and to be honest, I spent a good bit of the day inside in them too). Absolutely the comfiest riding pants ever!!! Thank you so very much!!!!" Meg Sleeper VMD, DACVIM (cardiology) Section of cardiology Department of clinical studies MJR-VHUP

 I have been wearing FITS breeches for 2 years now.  They are so comfortable, look great, allow me to use my seat bones individually, and hide my flaws.  Now I don't want to wear anything else! Carol Watson TX

I don’t want to wear anything but FITS! - 07/2014


This jacket rocks! Saved me from heat stress at first two shows I wore it at. Best investment for hot weather shows. I live in south FL!! Pam Wood

ZEPHYR SHOW COAT ROCKS! - 07/2014


The Zephyr was a godsend this weekend - the weather was SO hot and gross. Ick.   But I was as cool as possible in a show coat. Lauren Sprieser

Thank God for my FITS Zephyr! - 07/2014


I love your breeches! I'm an equestrian professional and for the past 4 yrs, I've started riding in no other breech than the FITS.  I have 2 winter breeches and 5 all season performax.  And I try to get all my students to at least try them. After years of suffering, your design lets me ride well and be comfortable too! In both dressage and eventing. Jane Braddock

Goodbye uncomfortable full seats! - 07/2014


I love my FITS!  I've been riding in them for years and I don't like to ride in anything else! I think I even still have one of the originals- the pull ons without belt loops plus my newer ones of course.  They hold up so well! Holly Erdely

FITS HOLD UP SO WELL! - 06/2014


 I wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the Treads Lite.   OMG....they are amazing. I got them home and thought that I wouldn’t like them as I wasn’t sure if they would hold in all my “wobbly bits” but sure enough I look great.   You were telling me how you put them on and have gone to work, the gym and to ride.....I thought “oh, sure”.  I am a total believer now.  LOL.  I just found the pocket in the right leg.  Yes, I know, I’m a little slow.  I was doing trot sets and needed my iPhone as a timer and it just stuck right in there the whole time.  NO wiggling or coming loose.  These are really great breeches.  I need to buy another pair in the grey.   Maureen via email

I need to buy another pair…. - 06/2014


I just wanted to let y'all know that this is the BEST jacket in the world. I run super hot and in the hotter months I almost feel like I am going to pass out in my old jacket. I bought this jacket and it came in 2 days before I left for a horse trail this past weekend in Georgia. It was a warm weekend and my rides times were all in the afternoon. I was so excited to wear the jacket in the ring. It was so light weight, cool, breezy, sporty and very classy looking at the sometime. I didn't feel restricted in anyway. The sizing is very true and I tried it on with a red shirt under it and you really can't see through it at all, we were all amazed!!! I,lo this jacket and can't wait to wear it again. Thank you FITS for making this coat!!!! Chirssy from Georgia

Zephyr is the show jacket in the world! - 05/2014

I have had a week to ride in the FITS breech. It is a beautiful breech. I felt comfortable and more free than in my more conventional breech. I am still getting used to that. I thought the full seat feature would feel different but it felt similar to what I ride in. The breech felt almost invisible. See you at the shows! Paula Helm Helm Saddles

The Invisible Breech! - 03/2014


Wow! Treads Lite are awesome.  That handy pocket on right leg is perfect for my cell phone. I love that they are super light weight and how well the tiny little grippy beads on the full seat part work. They ride great and also are like my yoga/pants that I wear the rest of the day . Love love love them. They look great with running shoes as well as boots. My non horsey friends comment on them too!

Mary-Haskins Gurganus on why she loves her Treads Lite full seats - 03/2014


"Hi Sheryl,  We corresponded a while back about making more zip-front options. I bought a pair of your (new?) Megan knee patch breeches, mainly because I wanted black breeches... I love the overall smooth feeling of the fabric, and my butt felt very comfortable in the saddle. Bending down to pick my horse’s feet also felt less restricted. So I think they’re a hit!...The salesperson at XXX told me FITS is the only brand that still uses leather. . PLEASE continue the leather option, since it’s the only material I find comfortable because it stretches. Thanks!" -Lori Kent

Megan Breech a “HIT”! - 03/2014


"Hello! Re the FITS new Megan breech... I LOVE them! They are so comfortable I have been wearing them down in Thermal and in this heat they have been my favorite pants by far! They are so comfortable!" Michelle Bion

Megan Breech “My favorite breech by far! - 03/2014


"I'm just loving the new Megan breech!! I keep wanting to go to bed in them, so comfy, like silk tights!!  And you'll love this...I walk out in them for the first time and my partner goes "wow, your booty looks AMAZING!" hehe! He loves the breech too!" Johanna Sieffert HJ Trainer

Megan Breech Love! - 02/2014


Thank you for making your wonderful breeches! They have revolutionized my riding and my comfort. I recommend them to my clients as often as possible, and I'm happy to report a number of them have purchased your breeches despite their concerns over cost. None of us will look back! I have absolutely no idea whey we didn't start a revolt long before FITS' arrival, burning those stiff, fake, hot, and unsightly full-seat breeches of yesteryear in a pile of smoking hay and manure. But, I'm glad that someone at your company did, for the rest of us are much happier now. And, when we're happy our horses are happy!  Abby O.  in Wisconsin

A FITS Revolt! - 01/2014


I have to write and tell you I purchased and wore the new Treads winter breech and love it!  You may recall I emailed you a few months ago about trying to find the "old" winter breech with deerskin full seat.  My horse is a big mover and I was concerned about moving around too much.  Not at all.  I like the design of this breech with the higher waist in back, as well.  This breech seems warmer than the other one...we live in WI.

LOVE FOR FITS WIND PRO TREADS BREECH! - 12/2013


“ I am in love! I just tried FITS full seats. They are the only breeches I've ever worn that don't ride up, or down. Plus they are still clean after my ride, is this magic fabric that repels dirt? I think so!  Thank you thank you thank you!”   Leah Anderson

Is this magic fabric or what? - 11/2013


I now own 4 pair of FITS Breeches. They're that good. As I told you I have many many _______. That was all I rode in until now. Your breeches are more about riding. I don't have to think about my leg. It's in place. I don't feel stuck- I have full movement. Temperature is just right. Thank you thank you thank you! Please keep going! Meegan Voss October 2013

FITS are more about Riding! - 10/2013


Hello! I thought that I would drop you a note to say that I LOVE YOUR BREECHES!  I've sold off all my other breeches and now only ride and show in FITS.  I've struggled with other full seat breeches restricting my knees while in the saddle and causing rubs making riding not so pleasant.  Also, as I move up the levels in dressage I'm coming more and more attached to my FITS breeches because they feel like a second skin.  I pump up FITS every time someone asks me about breeches and I can't say enough good things about them. Keep up the good work! Lynnea Courtney -Third Level Dressage rider from Iowa

I LOVE YOUR BREECHES! - 08/2013


I just wanted to drop you a quick email, and pass onto you, what an awesome product that the FITS Treads are. I purchased a pair at the Qld State Championship Endurance ride in Australia on the Friday.  First off, I am generally in an Australian fitting 20 - 22. Carol said for me to try on the XL, I kinda doubted they'd fit, and being 5'10", they looked a bit small in the leg, and I thought, OMG, I don't need pants that sit too low, and give the whole 'muffin top' thing. I know I am overweight, I don't need to be highlighting it with a pair of Jod's that have a few rolls hanging over the top. (LOL) Anyway, I tried them on, and was immediately impressed with how they felt and how there was no muffin top happening, and with the 4 way stretch with the light weight material, I actually felt totally awesome (kinda like the whole skinny feeling) in a pair of Jods. I purchased them and couldn't wait to ride in them. So come Sunday, I decided when I got home to take the horse for a ride. To be honest, I expected that the 'ink dot's' wouldn't work... So I put on the Leather Stock Saddle, and expected to be slipping all over the place, as the leather hasn't been 'broken in'... Well I stayed put, no slipping and sliding around in it. Even when the big fella decided to have a bit of a hissy fit crossing the road, and did the whole thing of bouncing up off the hind legs. Then today, I took him out again, but in the Wintec Isabell Dressage Saddle, again no movement, had a totally awesome ride. So yep the Ink Dot's have done what the little label has said they do, I do hope that they are long wearing, and that they do retain their shape as I so love the feel of them. I am considering purchasing another pair, but am thinking of a white pair, as we are coming into our summer, and white tends to reflect the heat, but having said that, I kinda get the impression that the Black, is a bit kinder to my outline than white would be... (LOL) The young lady I ride with, is so over me talking about them, especially when I stand up in the stirrups, and rub the dots on my butt, to show how awesome they are... Cheers. Wendy Kiemann Queensland Australia.

Immediately impressed with FITS Treads AS Lite breeches - 08/2013


I am a whipper-in for a foxhunt in Virginia.  So I am always searching for the most comfortable, durable breech.  I finally found it!  Your side zip breech is one of the most comfortable that I’ve worn.  Not only that, they stand  up to long hours in the saddle, and the abuse of riding through thick woods without a trail.  Finally I don’t have to buy a new pair of breeches every few months.  Thank you. Thanks, Barton 6.2013 via email

"FITS Duets are officially my favorite pair of breeches ever!!! I can't believe how flattering they are it was all the security of any full seat breech but I felt like I had yoga pants on. Seriously a huge fan! I need a pair in white for shows!" Leah Lang-Gluscic www.llgeventing.com  

Officially my favorite pair of breeches ever! - 05/2013


I have been a fan of the FITS All Season Breech for years because of the close contact they provide to the horse.  When I saw the Treads Lite breech, I immediately ordered a pair.  Our summers are hot and I wore them for the first time today, 85 degrees.  They are perfect!!  I just ordered another pair.

Judy Ethell, Amateur FEI dressage competitor - 05/2013


I am a huge fan of the FITS All Season breeches and wear nothing else as nothing is as comfortable. I live in Western Australia where the summer temperatures reach 40 celsius plus. Even yesterday, well into autumn, it was 34 degrees where I was riding. In other words, for most of the year it is very warm, so I got very excited when I read about your Treads Lites as I was wishing for a lighter pair of breeches. (Oddly enough even Australian brands don't seem to be able to make a really cool pair of breeches.) I received them by mail on Monday and wore them for the first time yesterday (Tues). Even more comfortable than the All Season breeches and so light and cool. Also love the pocket on the thigh as can put iphone in it. If they wash and wear as well as they are supposed to they will become my every day breeches for most of the year bar the coldest days. Also love FITS service as had faulty pair which I advised them of and was immediately sent replacement pair. Thanks again and regards Camilla R. Australia

Huge Fan of FITS All Season Breeches and Wear Nothing Else! - 04/2013


Hello FITS: I am a dressage rider/trainer/competitor and have had a long time struggle with breeches rubbing and chaffing at the seams on my inner thigh. I usually have to wear long underwear under my breeches to prevent this. It doesn't seem to matter what kind of breech, this always seems to happen. I just bought the wunderbreech as a lightweight alternative to my long underwear and was disappointed to see that the seam is on the inside of the leg. Well, I've ridden in the wunderbreech 4 times now and I'm sold! They are great... Lightweight, non chaffing, comfortable, and I generally didn't notice they were on. My tall boots are a bit too tight at the knee now so if you ever make them out of a thinner fabric, I would try them also. Thanks! Julie

Sold on the Wunderbreech! - 03/2013


I bought a pair of TREADS Polartec breeches a month ago and I absolutely LOVE them . . . I got them at my local tack shop in Ridgefield, CT. Do you make a comparable breech that doesn't have polartec for the warmer weather? (Yes! Coming to market in March 2013!) I haven't been able to find them . . . :( Please advise! These are the only breeches I will EVER buy! Thank you,

Rosanne Hermenze - 02/2013


I Just wanted to let you know how well your breeches kept me stuck to my horses even without a saddle! Love my FITS!I

Caroline Martin - 12/2012


I wanted to share with you how much I love your products! You have such awesome stuff for either for showing or just everyday riding.

Emily S - 12/2012


You should market your FITS breeches to men! I finally a chance for a same day comparison between a pair of XXXXX breeches on a indoor simulator & 1 of your FITS PerforMax breeches on my horse outdoors: no comparison, much cooler, grippier! They feel as if I were wearing compression tights while cross-country skiing, i.e. the overall support from the high Lycra content in the fabric. The higher waist line is just like the one on my favorite Sporthill XC tights...

Dan - 07/2012


I am an endurance rider and am sure I have over 3500 miles in my 4 year old FITS pants. In the winter especially I only ride in my FITS and that's what I use almost exclusively in the summer too (I find it amazing that the thin pants I buy from your competitors are WAY hotter in the summer than the FITS pants). Thank you FITS.

Carol G. - 05/2012


I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love your breeches, they are so comfortable & they make you feel closer to your horse, the leather seat really does give you that extra grip & it is very much appreciated when I am doing my sitting trot on my big moving warmblood!

Alison and Walter Scotland - 02/2012


Hi everyone at FITS, I have many pairs of the FITS pull on breeches and decided to try the wunderbreech. I have two pairs. They are flattering, soft, have some compression and are comfortable in the hot weather... from an ardent FITS fan! Many Thanks,

Susan G.L. - 06/2011


My husband bought me some FITS pull-on breeches 3-4 years ago when we lived in Missouri. I wear them every time I ride from late Spring to Fall because they are the only breeches that help keep me from overheating when I ride, as well as being far more comfortable than any other breeches. I love them. To illustrate, when I had a major riding accident in August of 2008, I was wearing my FITS breeches (and of course I had a helmet on as always). I would not let the ER team cut my breeches off. They had to peel them off over my broken hip (and despite a broken shoulder and 4 broken ribs). I was adamant that they be saved because I was going to need them again the next summer. And needless to say, I am planning to wear them all this summer too. All that and they look almost like new. Thanks for making a wonderful product.

Cindy - 05/2011


An interesting thing happened however in my initial trial ride in my new FITS breeches. My horse, he is super sensitive, could actually feel my seatbones better than he ever has before. I know this because I have never gotten such nice changes. I rode in them again this morning and the same thing with the line of tempis. It is amazing to me that a little piece of seat material on...or not on...your seatbones can make that big of a difference. BRILLIANT design!

Michelle from the internet - 04/2011


Sheryl, We spoke when we were at WEG and my daughter bought 3 pair of the FITS breeches and absolutely loves them. She has worn brand XXX since the day she started riding at the age of 8 and I never could get her to try another breech. When we were at WEG I actually got her to try the FITS breeches, she was not really wanting to but did just for me and is thrilled that she did. Here is a picture of her in her breeches She is one of the younger girls wearing them since she is only 14 but they have become a favorite of our barn in Texas and we have several girls that have started wearing them along with Alyssa's trainer. Thanks for introducing us to such a great product. This picture was taken at Texas Rose Horse Trial in Tyler, Texas by Terrie Hatcher where Alyssa won the Open Preliminary division. Thanks,

Julie P. Texas - 03/2011


I was frustrated because as my seat and my riding improved, my underwear (wedgie) problem got a lot worse. These Wunderbreeches removed what was really becoming an impediment to my improving seat and I'm able to focus on my horse and my riding again. Thank you!

Allison M. from the Internet - 02/2011


My FITS full seat breeches were a Christmas present from my husband. We ordered them online on Christmas day, and they arrived 10 days later, which I thought was absolutely marvellous, since they had to come all the way to Australia, and were shipped during the holiday period. I didn't wear them straight away ( saving them for a special occasion) but when I wore them on the horse I was absolutely delighted- SO comfortable! I've been recommending them to all my friends, and will certainly make them my breech of choice. Thank you everyone at FITS.

Pam M. Sedgwick, Victoria, Australia - 02/2011


love these breeches and I'll never wear anything else again. They have freed my seat bones in the saddle and improved my riding by I'll say 20%, which means I can give my horse that much of a better ride, and she can respond to me that much better.

Gail H. - 10/2010


Kudos on designing a wonderful breech! I purchased my first pair of FITS in July and they quickly became my favorites. I could go on and on about the things I love about them. If I were to add a minor critique it's that the pull-on's like mine can be difficult to get over my hips. Once they are on, they fit like they were made for me. You've created an addict. Please add me to your mailing list. Laura C Laura C - 04/2013

Laura C - 10/2010


I have several pairs of your breeches and am an avid fan of them. I ride in them all day long, every day... Thank you for revolutionizing what those of us wear when we ride all day. I can no longer wear breeches other than FITS. And, each client I’ve convinced to buy or try a pair has been a total convert. J It’s an expensive—yet fantastic—place to be. Thanks!

Abby O. - 09/2010


I LOVE FITS - breeches are wonderful, concealing and wear beautifully. The tech tops also fit perfectly, are so easy to care for, quick-drying and perfect for travel. A thousand thanks for creating such a functional and beautiful product. I look forward to every new season for your latest new product."

I just got back in town from an event derby over the weekend. I wore the new long sleeved Silk Touch Show Shirtand I LOVED IT!!! I have never had anything as comfortable as that was. It was both cool and warm weather there this weekend and it was perfect for both. Thank you for that and I think that may become a fast favorite of mine=)

Sara Mittleider - 07/2010


"Hi Sheryl, I just wanted to update you on whats happening with us. We've just completed all maintenance work on my mare and I’ll do a hard/fast 100 this Saturday. If she comes through that sound and with a lot of energy then I will probably head to Indiana for the final selection trial for WEG. If she has any trouble, I'll start aiming for 2012! I just have to tell you how great your FITS breeches are again – the darn things never wear out (LOL). I’m STILL wearing my original pair from three years ago. Wish there was some way for me to track the number of miles they have been in the saddle. It would be impressive!"

I just wanted to send in this great photo Tim O'Neal got of me (my butt ) and my horse at the WIPC HT this weekend. F.I.T.S. are the only breeches I will wear ever since the lady at Gallops convinced me to get a pair at Rolex of 2008. I have only had to get rid of one pair, only due to the fact that i wore and washed them so much the leather started to rip. Anyways, in the photo I attached I am wearing the full seat breeches as well as the matching FITS shirt. All of the people at my barn call me the "local FITS rep" because thats all i will ride in, breeches and shirts! So, I just wanted to say thank you so much for making such great breeches that hold us in the saddle while still being sooo comfy!

Do you often get instant repeat customers?!?! One pair of Beka breeches is not enough. They are the most amazing breeches I have ever worn!

Chelan Koza, Canadian Olympian - 07/2010


FITS Silk Touch Shirts are unbelievable!!!!!!!!!! Riding in a schooling show with a heat index over 100 degrees in June in FL, it's like a second skin and much cooler than sunscreen! All I have to do is have people feel the fabric and they come to the store to see the shirts!

Jo Mc. Florida - 06/2010


I just got back from 14 days of riding in South Africa that was fantastic! Part of the reason is was so great was due to the 2 pairs of FITS full seat breeches I used the whole time. They were incredibly comfy with no chaffing or rubbing and I was in the saddle for 6 to 8 hours a days! They were warm and cozy in the cool mornings and cool and dry in the warm afternoons. They held up well to the dirt and the wear. Over all they were great and made the trip enjoyable.

TJ Miles - 06/2010


I just love FITS breeches. I've never been able to wear full seats because of the uncomfortable feeling in the crotch and how they made breeches feel so stiff. I used to wear Brand X extended patch, but now, I wear FITS all the time - for schooling and showing.

Diane - 05/2010


"$125 for a show shirt...kind of on the steep side right? The description said something about it being silky so I thought I would give it a try because I hate stiff, crinkly show shirts. OMG. I can't believe this only cost $125. It is the absolute softest shirt I have ever felt. Better yet, it is also the stretchiest shirt I have ever felt. It REALLY stretches in all directions. It is incredibly light weight to the point that I've actually looked down to make sure I'm still wearing a shirt. I don't think I can ever wear any other kind of show shirt again. FITS better hurry up and make some more colors!"

NE USA - 05/2010


"I first saw a friend of mine wearing these breeches (Beka Breeches) and I couldn't believe how well they fit and how flattering they were! She told me where she got them, so I hurried up and ordered a pair. The fabric is very durable and well constructed. The ab panel mesh creates a really smooth look, and something about the way the euro seam is designed makes your butt look great! You'll probably have to try them out for yourself - but I'm a big fan and it's worth trying!"

I am an eventer and ran Southern Pines this past March. While everything had been going great and my horse and I were in top three placings, I had an unfortunate fall on XC (my horse's back legs got caught in the ditch). I fell underneath him and he stepped on me, slicing me with his metal tip stud on my lower hip....causing me to have to go to the hospital to have five staples put in to close up the massive gash I had. While my flesh (and undies) were completely cut and torn up......my FITS were in PERFECT condition. My gash was under where my pants went and I know for a fact that the metal stud should have ripped my breeches, but it didn't!! There was only a tiny hole from where the stud went into my pants, but I have no idea how it didn't rip them completely! I have told multiple people (including a sales woman at the Dover Saddlery in Charlottesville, VA, whom after hearing my story said "those are some d@mn good breeches"!) about how amazingly tough and durable your riding breeches are b/c of the accident I had. Anyways, just wanted to let someone out there at FITS know that your product is fantastic.

I have been meaning to send this note for some time now, but of course daily life gets in the way and all the sudden it is several months later! I purchased my first pair of FITS breeches last May, after being frustrated with my normal breeches falling apart at the seems after a few short months. I ride endurance, ending most seasons with 500+ AERC miles, and however many training miles. I am hard on my clothes given the fact I ride hard, play hard and trim my own horses, often wearing my breeches. This last spring I was given an awesome opportunity to go down south and ride a horse for Garrett Ford (Owner/President of Easycare, INC), in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is BEAUTIFUL in N. Scottsdale and I was so excited to get to ride 50 miles there! We started the ride in a sand wash, winding in and out of the Sonoran Desert. We popped out of the wash to some amazing single track trails, lined with all sorts of native brush. Very sticky, thorny, cactus-y native brush! My top, which was made by a popular equestrian clothing company, was obliterated- snags and snags galore, and even some tears from catching various brush as we went flying through the trail! I had cactus spines sticking out of my half-chaps and boots! I was afraid to look down at my FITS, just certain they would be snagged to heck from all the brush but guess what??? NOT ONE SINGLE SNAG!! Thank you for making a product that actually lasts. I am tired of spending money on things that are made for riding, yet don't hold up to the actual miles. I have since purchased two more pairs of FITS and would love more! Although they are pricey, it's much easier to spend the money on something you KNOW will hold up, than on something half the price that might only last for six months.

While everything had been going great and my horse and I were in top three placings, I had an unfortunate fall on XC (my horse's back legs got caught in the ditch). I fell underneath him and he stepped on me, slicing me with his metal tip stud on my lower hip....causing me to have to go to the hospital to have five staples put in to close up the massive gash I had. While my flesh (and undies) were completely cut and torn up......my FITS were in PERFECT condition. My gash was under where my pants went and I know for a fact that the metal stud should have ripped my breeches, but it didn't!! There was only a tiny hole from where the stud went into my pants, but I have no idea how it didn't rip them completely! I have told multiple people (including a sales woman at the Dover Saddlery in Charlottesville, VA, whom after hearing my story said "those are some d@mn good breeches"!) about how amazingly tough and durable your riding breeches are b/c of the accident I had. Anyways, just wanted to let someone out there at FITS know that your product is fantastic.

"I first saw a friend of mine wearing these breeches (Beka Breeches) and I couldn't believe how well they fit and how flattering they were! She told me where she got them, so I hurried up and ordered a pair. The fabric is very durable and well constructed. The ab panel mesh creates a really smooth look, and something about the way the euro seam is designed makes your butt look great! You'll probably have to try them out for yourself - but I'm a big fan and it's worth trying!"

TS - 04/2010


I love, love, love my FITS riding breeches!! They are great in any kind of weather, they fit great, wash incredibly well, hold their shape and color. They are well worth the cost. Thanks for such a cool product!

Dear F.I.T.S., I wanted to write and tell you about an amazing experience I had two days ago. I was in a jump lesson, and made a major judgement error. My poor horse had no choice but to stop, and I went careening into the jump poles and the standard. It shook me up a bit, but I finished the lesson, and then went about the business of putting my horse to bed for the evening. About one hour after the fall, I noticed a wet spot on the left side of my breeches, which turned out to be blood. So.... I went into the bathroom to check out what I thought would be a bad scrape. WELL.... a huge chunk of my upper thigh fell away as I lowered my breeches. I was freaked out and called a friend who is an EMT. She was also horrified, and quickly found a bandage and some vetrap to bind it up. At the hospital, they wanted to get down to the business of sewing as soon as possible because separated skin tends to want to start "shrinking up," which makes the repair much more difficult. After a quick irrigation, they set to work. Long story short.......the phenomenal thing was that even though my thigh was cut open like a can opener, the breeches were not punctured. I washed them later that night, and they look as good as new!!!!!! That fabric is truly unbelievable to be able to withstand an object sharp enough to gouge a huge hole in my leg. Wow. The doctor told me that the compression of the fabric limited my blood loss, and the fact that the fabric didn't rip, thereby exposing the wound to the arena sand, kept the wound extremely clean. I hate to think of the possible consequences of that size wound being filled with dirty arena sand. Ugh. I've loved my breeches. I'm tall and thin, so I'm hard to fit and they are sooooo comfy. But now, I have an even better reason to wear only F.I.T.S. ..... extraordinary breeches!

" I want you to know that I now have about 5 pair of your breeches and love wearing them. They have slowly but steadily replaced all my other pairs and now there is no comparison."

Andee H. - 12/2009


"I just wanted to shoot you and quick email and thank you again for the winter breeches! I have stayed cozy and comfortable throughout this winter weather. It's the first pair of winter breeches I've ridden in that I didn't feel far away from my horse. I didn't even slip or slide! Even down to 12 degrees with wind, I've been warm and toasty on my horses, in the barn and while I'm teaching. Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating these wonderful breeches!"

Jessica Rattner - 12/2009


"I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful product. I have had the good fortune to try your breeches and wanted to tell you that I'll never go back! I purchased a pair of pull up full seat breeches this summer and have never been more comfortable. I hope to get a pair of the zip style for Christmas Thanks again!"

Mary J. Novice Event Rider - 11/2009


"I love the material that the breeches are made out of. The fit is amazing and soooooo comfortable--even when it is really hot outside. I don't know how many breeches I bought and had to send back---at my expense because they didn't fit right. I finally resorted to mens breeches until I won the pair of FITS at the AEC's. I couldn't believe a pair of breeches would cost as much as FITS do but like I said I loved them so I bought another pair!!!!! They are worth every penny!"

Melanie H - 11/2009


"Hi Sheryl, I love your breeches! I bought (and rode in) my first pair today. The quality is superb and the design ingenious! I couldn't believe how deep they allow my seat to be!"

Barbara S. - 10/2009


"Im a new user of this fantastic breeches in Norway. They are the best I have ever tried."

Marainne A. Norway - 07/2009


"I discovered your products searching the web. I've been buying your breeches on the internet since 2007. I have your full seat breeches in black, sahara, expresso, navy and cabernet. The next time I'll go for the earth ones. I also have some of your tech tanks and shirts which I absolutely love. The breeches are comfortable, stylish and very flattering. Everybody in my barn keep telling me how great they look. Please, keep making these breeches in more colors. The shirts are also excellent and I love the patterns (it's difficult to pick just one or two each season). I'd love if you could make the same beautiful tech shirts in long sleeve for colder months."

Esther from Spain - 04/2009


"I have to say I'm loving my FITS! I feel like I've got a great sense of grip but with a level of contact that I think traditional breeches lose. I have to confess I've put my other breeches on permanent "storage." I'm a FITS girl for life! And as a complete aside, I have to say that I find the support provided by my FITS seems to actually help combat muscle soreness and fatigue when I'm in the saddle. I suffer from Fibromyalgia, and tend to become exhausted and sore easily. I was amazed on Saturday when my jumping lesson hit the hour mark. I was ready to keep going until my trainer pointed out that we were done...I'm usually whining by the end of our lesson that I'm too tired to continue, and here an entire hour had passed without my body nagging at me. I've also noticed that while I'm wearing them, I don't seem to notice sore muscles as much. Am I imagining things, or is that added benefit by design? It's amazing the science behind the design and how effective it is. I couldn't be happier or more comfortable in my FITS. "

Dawn A. - 04/2009


"This is my daughter (in her lucky shirt) and her trainer, Tracy. Tate won a grand championship and reserve grand championship in it at her last show and now will wear nothing else! I just purchased another one to give this beloved garment a rest! We also love the fact that she stays dry with this under her dressage coat-how wonderful! Thanks for making such great shirts!"

Sharon Baker - 02/2009


"Every rider is always striving to be closer to their horse, to have a better connection on their back. We invest in close- contact saddles, buy thin, less bulkier saddle pads in order to create the feeling of "oneness" atop our mounts. That's why I use FITS breeches. FITS gives me that close- contact feeling without having to invest in trendy saddles and pads. Additionally, its super stretchy material allows the breeches to fit comfortably around my body similar to a second skin, and gives a sleek and elegant appearance. Whether youÕre trekking down the trail or tracking down center line, FITS has your back!"

Laine Ashker - 11/2008


"I'm old, I like traditional things like, tack should be made of leather. The only colors for me are leather and white. I'm not into bling or gadgets. I mostly think new, better, high tech are just ways to get you to spend more money. In the pursuit of our sport we all want to be better & that new technology always promises to deliver the goods. The catalogs (our bibles) are full of stuff encouraging us to believe that we can buy the holy grail instead of earning it. I generally think it's all crap & that the only way is the old fashioned way, as in, apply the seat of your butt to the seat of the saddle & stay there till the job is done. However, applying your seat to that saddle can sometimes cause irritating discomfort & often absolute pain. Without getting too raw (pardon the pun) here, haven't we all had those blisters, & boils & sore spots - not to mention blood that we know is not of the natural kind - in that most vulnerable part of our anatomy? So, every once in a while, when I find a new, high tech product that actually seems to work I am eager to spread the word. F.I.T.S. breeches seem to be one of those products. Let me first say that I have bought breeches from $30 to $300 plus & I know for sure that the price tag is no way to determine the fit or the quality so while these breeches are definitely on the high side of my budget, for me they are a ‘best buy.' Also, I wear my breeches 12 - 14 hours a day so the best recommendation I can give is, I don't notice them! The fabric itself is some kind of high tech, moisture wicking stuff that you can read about at any site where they can be purchased but for me, I like that it is very stretchy so they fit just about anyone. They fit EVERYWHERE. There's no too short in the crotch so you can't get to the saddle, there's no restriction in the knee, there's no tugging in the back. The full seat is deer skin perforated with little holes (again, I assume for that moisture wicking quality) but also the leg part is separated from the butt part so there is no leather in the crotch & that seems to eliminate that feeling that your pants are falling down in the back. They are a pull on breech that actually stays up! They now make a pair with a zipper but since the regular ones have belt loops, I'm not sure why you would need them. Another big plus for me is, the fabric is so stretchy that in the winter you can wear long underwear with them without feeling like the Goodyear Blimp. I must confess that a student of mine bought some & I was giving her a hard time about spending so much on a pair of breeches so she loaned me a pair to try. So then I had to eat humble pie because within days I had ordered a couple of pairs. Then I took 15 pairs (yes 15) that were hanging in my closet that I wouldn't wear, sold them on the web site & bought another pair of F.I.T.S. My F.I.T.S. have now been loaned out several times so other people can try before they buy & I think everyone who's tried them have now purchased a pair. I did keep a few pairs of my old breeches that come sort of close to being OK to wear & they are Equissentials & Tropical Rider but now I find they are the ones hanging in the closet... F.I.T.S. also make a nice shirt that is very comfortable"

Ann Womak - 11/2008


I am a HUGE "FITS" fan as now are all of my students. I am tall and these breeches are the first full seats that are actually comfortable. My only complaint was they didn't have a pocket for sugar. I just bought my fourth pair, the pair with the zipper and pocket (Yeh!). Thanks again for finally making a logical full seat breech."

Ally R. - 10/2008


"FITS breeches are absolutely the most comfortable breeches I've ever worn! They're like wearing a second skin. They move with me in every direction, and never bag or droop in those critical spots! Plus, I've never been a fan of full seat breeches. But FITS unique segmented style allows me to be comfortable in them. Finally, I can enjoy the benefits of full seat breeches without feeling restricted. What a great find!!"

Jane Savoie - 10/2008


"These are the best dressage riding pants I have ever used!!! I just wish they would occasionally go on sale, if they do, I want to know and I will buy many more, for me and for gifts!!

Lisa W. - 10/2008


"I own 7 pairs of FITS breeches. The product is superior to any other I have purchased. I will continue to buy fits breeches. In addition, my daughter rides and is now old enough to fit into FITS. We are a great pair of advertisers for the company. People are always asking us how we like them, and we always say we wear nothing but FITS when we ride and show. I now own more FITS than jeans."

Taryn W. - 10/2008


Hello Sheryl, I just thought that it would be fun for you to know that Sara has sent all of her non FITS breeches to consignment saying that she plans to never wear any of them again. I am, as the head laundry person around here, impressed that the FITS are surviving me. I am busy and I just don't always make the most careful sorting choices, but your breeches are surviving me very well. They are worn all day every day and not just for riding, but also for feeding and tractor driving and general farm chores. I had always worried about Sara's breeches getting snags and tears but these breeches wear like iron and they just keep coming out of the washer I especially like the newest pair. They are navy blue and fit Sara so well that they look like they were made on her frame. Thank you so much for sticking with Sara during this "rebuilding" year. Although we have had a good season with Here's Awesome we are looking forward to having El Primero back on the travel roster in 2009. Hope to see you soon,

Love, love, love the FITS breeches! They are by far the most comfortable pair I own and now I do not want to put on any others. Washed beautifully in the machine, so care is not a big deal. I want 10 more pair! I am not sure if I should thank you or hate you as I have to replace all of my other breeches now.

Linda T. in Pennsylvania - 10/2008


These are the first breeches that fit, that do not create chafing sores at my knees and at the tops of my boots, and look clean after five rides! One of my barn mates and I extol your praises to anyone who has not had the pleasure of discovering FITS. FITS truly do give one the best ride of her life. Thank you!

Claire E. in Oregon - 10/2008


My god - I have been riding for the better part of my life, and finding comfortable breeches that actually fit, never mind look good, has never happened. These FITS are amazing. My birthday is on Friday, so that is what my husband can buy me. I will order a competition pair! Thanks!

Sue Mcdermott in Tasmania Australia - 07/2008


I had the absolute pleasure of riding in your breeches today. Thank you for bucking the full seat tradition and offering a technically superior breech!

Amy Y. in California - 07/2008


I first rode in the FITS competition breeches at The Sydney CDI***, they felt amazing no pulling or pinching anyway just so comfortable, These breeches are lightweight and breathable yet still give the rider great support through a secure contact with the saddle. The FITS shirts fit so well under my tails. I love the material as it keeps you cool and comfortable. The whole ensemble looked so elegant and I love the champagne colour. Video

Kate Taylor-Wheat, Australian Dressage Team - 06/2008


Dear FITS, I am writing for two reasons... first to let you know where to send my commission check (ha!!!) and second to tell you that these are all I wear now. I first bought Performax full seat at the beginning of the '08 show season... I was hooked and immediately bought two more pairs and then donated my old breeches to charity. I am not kidding when I say FITS Performax are all I wear. At the first show I wore them in, a vendor was there with them in his tent. I had two girls ask me about my breeches that I was wearing, The Perfomax, and I showed them EVERYTHING about them, from the waistline to the powernet calf... they were sold and went in to the vendors tent and purchased them! Everywhere I go I get people asking, "do you like them?" and I go on and on about them! People tell me I should be a sales rep!!! Anyway, I just received my 6th pair in the mail today and wanted to write and say thank you and please don't ever stop making them!

Estacada, Oregon - 06/2008


Just wanted to let you know how much I'm loving my new FITS all-season breeches, which your company generously awarded as prizes at the 2007 American Eventing Championships. When riding is your 9-to-5 job, comfort is everything--and FITS are definitely the flannel pajamas of the breeches world. I'll be ordering a second (and possibly third and fourth) pair in the near future.

Leslie W. from Tennessee - 06/2008


I was introduced to FITS full seat breeches about two years ago and really enjoyed wearing them from the start. FITS were the first full seat breeches that didn't give me any rubs or chafing. They have great grip on the saddle; plus they are more comfortable and let me move more freely than any other full seat breech I have ever worn.

Kimberly Severson, Olympian USA Eventing Individual Silver and Team Bronze 2004 - 06/2008


FITS All Season Original Full Seats fit so perfectly, I love that it's "zipper free" and it couldn't be made any better then it already is. It doesn't bunch or bind in any way, there is no pulling when you bend down, they are pure perfection. I'm serious. FITS are the best riding breeches ever made!

Lucy H. - 04/2008


I rode in my new FITS breeches for the first time today. The comfort can be described with one word: Nirvana! These are THE most comfortable breeches I have ever worn—and I have tried nearly all of them. Thank you for a fantastic product! Can't wait for the front zip version to appear in our area!

Robin B. Arizona - 04/2008


The product is extraordinary! I'm delighted with the full-seat breeches and have never felt any others to be so comfortable or flattering. Before I ordered online, I phoned and spoke to a representative who was very helpful...and who was also a rider. Excellent service and product! The delivery came within 5 business days.

Sharon M. Florida - 02/2008


I just bought my second pair of FITS full seat breeches, from HorsegirlTV. I want to wear these breeches everywhere they are so comfortable!

Taryn W. from the Internet - 02/2008


I am never wearing any other breeches again! I was thrilled to find a pair of breeches with a tummy panel. I am 50 and fit but have a mommy tummy which I really, really, really hate, and I have always wondered why somebody didn't make breeches that were a little more flattering. Not only do I love the way these look, I love the way the full seat is broken up, so that it’s not so restrictive.

Lindsey C. in Canada - 02/2008


FANTASTIC! most comfortable breeches I have ever worn, love them. Just make them in a banana 'color' so I can have a set to show down here in Oz in and I would be very happy.

Sandra M. in Australia - 12/2007


Breeches fit beautifully. Don't know they are full seat breeches, comfortable, no binding, not riding the pants, I can sit deep in the saddle.

Martha H. in California - 12/2007


Another five-star quality product from F.I.T.S. These winter breeches are wonderful! It has been between 25 and 30 degrees over the past couple of weeks and I am toasty warm in my F.I.T.S. PerforMAX winter breeches. One cold day I was teaching one lesson and then riding two different horses, and I was still toasty warm and comfortable. The PerforMAX breeches are just the right weight, never overheating you yet perfectly toasty warm; plus they have the exceptional quality of workmanship and design of the other F.I.T.S. breeches, which to me are the new standard of excellence when it comes to riding breeches. Great product!! I'm just wanting F.I.T.S. to come out with a jacket of the same material as the PerforMAX breeches.

Carol G. in Vancouver BC - 12/2007


I LOVE FITS breeches, they are as good as the reviews say. I find them very comfortable, and in this October heat wave on the East Coast, I find they are breathing great in the humidity and really helping me stick in my seat! Thanks for such a great product.

Sheila P. in New York - 10/2007


These breeches are great!!! Even after washing they look like brand new. I bought one pair of FITS breeches and totally fell in love with them. I now own 7 pairs. I am now starting to sell all my other breeches because FITS are my preferred riding outfit.

Regina S. in Illinois - 10/2007


I LOVE my FITS full seats more than any other full seat I've had. I used to get really irritated while tacking up and riding in stiff, bunchy breeches, which did not help my performance. Now with my FITS, I can quit thinking about how uncomfortable I am and think about my ride. My dad can't get me to change out of them when I come into the house from riding.. He says to change into something comfortable--but I tell him that I am comfortable!

Erin McPherson in Washington state - 10/2007


I love the comfort, support and breathability of your breeches. They make me feel very flexible. I got them in green but will in the future get a color I can compete in. They are great! Comfortable, breathable and easy to wash.

Tara Ziegler, Rolex Four Star Competitor - 06/2007


I just have to put on paper how much I love, and appreciate, your breeches! I work in the industry and consider myself an expert on the comfort, style, durability and usability (all day in the saddle and in the barn) of breeches and I have probably tried 90% of all the breeches made and that is quite an impressive array of breeches! I have been enthusiastically recommending FITS to all my friends and fellow competitors. There are few breeches that are this comfortable to wear yet tacky enough in the saddle, I am seriously impressed. They do not ride up or down, they have a comfortable close fit, and most importantly a breathable and movable full seat, no longer do we have to sacrifice security for comfort or vice versa! And they are quite flattering!

Corrine Ashton, Four Star Eventer in Massachusetts, USA - 06/2007


I received my new breeches yesterday and rode last night. They are awesome! I have a big TB off the track and his stride is enormous. I've been training him to be a dressage horse and needless to say the breeches sure help keep me quiet in the saddle. I can't imagine wearing anything else now! So thanks!!

Larissa P. in Calgary Alberta Canada - 05/2007


Better late than never! I did want to send you this about the breeches. Understand that I hate breeches, especially full seats and extra especially pull on full seats for the main reason that they are so uncomfortable & unyielding to ride in. So I decided to try a pair of F.I.T.S. all season full seat but didn't expect miracles. Amazing! Great fit without the stuffed sausage look and I can actually move. The perforated deerskin and especially having the leather segmented is sheer genius. First time I can get comfortable in the saddle and forget about the breeches, they just work. Must say I am impressed. Oh, and the shirt is incredible too and to think I really was not going to try it, these little shirts are never comfortable and always too clingy. Not yours, absolutely moves with you and looks good enough to wear anywhere. And added plus that I didn't sweat to death on a hot day. So I have to admit that though I didn't expect to be, I am positively impressed. Great breeches & shirt, pricey but worth it.

Nancy M. from the Internet - 05/2007


The F.I.T.S. breeches are absolutely the best breeches I've ever worn. In the past I've always worn Pikeur or Eurostar and recently the Isabell Werth breeches, and a few other various sundry brands, all top quality but once I rode in the F.I.T.S. breeches, I'm spoiled for any other brand of breeches. They are amazing. I've won many championships both in Canada and the U.S., and on three different horses I've been fortunate enough to win annual awards such as "eight times highest percentage achieved by any horse at that level for the entire year for the entire province", "three times won annual award for highest percentage achieved by any horse at any level at all shows in the entire province", ranked first place in all of North America by the American Trakehner Association for level shown", and so on for several other awards. I only mention this so you know I'm not a novice when it comes to breeches. The F.I.T.S. breeches design is amazing in every detail giving a whole new feel.

My favorite feature in my FITS breeches is that there is no leather that bunches up at the crotch. They are the most comfortable full seat breeches I have for that reason. I also really like how flattering they are. The way the seams are placed gives my body a nice elongated in the saddle and just walking around the barn.

Anna Collier McGreevy, 2004 USA Short List, Eventing, Rolex Four Star Competitor - 04/2007


I really like how the crotch seam in my FITS is stitched in a way that the rider cannot feel it. I appreciate the high quality materials too which seem more like European breeches, only smoother against my skin. But the crotch in European breeches tends to bunch up due to layers of overlapping material, so over the years I have stopped using them. That is why FITS are ideal for me because I ride 8-12 horses per day and I need for my pants to wear like iron without rubbing! I also like how FITS fabric is substantial but very stretchy and smooth, which eliminates the chafing and pressure that I normally get around my knee area.The deerskin patches are perfect because they grip but also stretch and never get in my way. And I think they look super as well.

Erin S in Virginia - 04/2007


I absolutely love my FITS breeches! They're good and stretchy and the material is good for British winters in the cold and also in the summer when it's hot. I wear them at least twice a week and they're wearing very well.

Lesley in London England UK - 04/2007


The FITS Full Seat Breech is a wonderful riding pant that I would recommend to every rider regardless of their equestrian discipline.  As an endurance rider, I spend at least 4 hours in the saddle every day training, and up to 16 hours a day when racing a 100 miles.  These pants are extremely comfortable on and off the horse.  They wick moisture in hot weather and keep you warm in colder weather.  I particularly like the deer skin panels and the way they provide just a little extra grip on the saddle.  The sculpting technology does not make the pant seem tight or binding, but rather seems to provide just the right amount of support to help fend off leg and muscle fatigue.  I have been riding almost daily in these pants for the past 3 months and they still look and feel brand new.  I suspect that they will easily outlast every other riding pant I have.  That alone makes the cost worthwhile comparable to other riding breeches.

Carol Giles, 2004 WEG Endurance Team - 04/2007


"I just LOVE my FITS breeches. I love how comfortable they are and how much better I can sit in the saddle with them. My instructor warned me I could get dependent on them… I guess she was right. I now have four pair."

Susie C. in South Carolina - 03/2007


"Your breeches are the best feeling/fitting and most flattering breeches I've ever worn! Thank you so much for them! Please make your breeches in every color possible so I can buy them all!”

Chris H. - 03/2007


"My FITS breeches are wonderful! It has been wet and windy weather, but I have been warm and dry in my FITS Wind Pro. I ride and clean stalls all morning, teach all afternoon. I always get sweaty when I ride, but instead of getting chilled like I usually do, I was comfortable. That's certainly a change! The breeches are very comfortable and I do appreciate the stickiness at sitting trot! I have a young chestnut TB mare that is bent on unloading me, but I felt pretty secure in the full seat. Everyone has said that they look very smart too."

Sara Mittleider in Idaho, USEA Young Rider. Rolex Kentucky Four Star Competitor - 02/2007


"As someone who rides five or six days a week, and edits a magazine about the equestrian retail business, I test ride a lot of breeches. When I wore my FITS for the first time, I couldn't believe how comfortable they were. I was able to lift my leg high enough to mount my warm blood from the ground, and once I was riding, I was able to readjust my leg and seat easily thanks to the articulated panels. I loved riding in them, and actually ended up wearing them for the rest of the day. As an added bonus, they flattered my middle-aged figure."

Emily E. in New Mexico - 02/2007


"These are THE MOST COMFORTABLE breeches I've ever worn! I have dozens of European breeches and love them as well. However, there are days I just want to be very comfortable in and out of the saddle and FITS provides that. They are also the only breech I wear for showing as they look beautiful on and don’t have any of the bulk that traditional show breeches have. They are also great for those days when water weight is an issue and I have to wear those tight tall boots ! They wash beautifully and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the deerskin!"

Karen P. in Washington State - 01/2007


"I do want to let you know I LOVE MY RIDING PANTS I feel super secure during my lessons especially when my horse is CRANKY."

Kelly B. in New Jersey - 01/2007


I was on the hunt for better fitting breeches and ordered 4 different kinds from Dover, including a pair of yours.  I loved the FITS product but it was only available in black.  I went to your website and found that you have them in white so I ordered more pairs (in both white and black).  I would appreciate if you could make some in a buff or canary color too.  Of course, the order I placed is on backorder... but! I look forward to receiving them ASAP as my first show is this weekend.  I am a Novice level event rider who is 50 years old and fits in a "shapely" size large.

Susan Martin in Michigan - 05/2006


I purchased a pair of FITS during the USDF Symposium in the Fall from the store at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.  I have to admit I just got around to taking the tags off of them and riding in them last weekend.  They really are great.  The best full seat breech I have ever used. I am tall and usually have problems with full seat breeches being long enough in the stride to allow me room to get deep in the saddle.  FITS fit me great with no restrictions.  Thus... I quickly located your web page on Sunday and ordered 2 more pairs, including a white pair for shows.

Kathryn L. in Texas - 03/2006


I love your FITS Performax breeches!  Between the luxurious comfort, leather and fit, plus the extreme "stick to the saddle" seat, your product gave me the confidence to ride my 5-year-old gelding in his first ever dressage show.  Your breeches helped me sit deep in the saddle and know I could keep my seat in spite of the unpredictability of riding a green horse. Thank you.

Mandi C. in Oregon - 02/2006


“Husband came through this year and I got my FITS PerforMAX™  breeches! They fit great, they feel great, and they look great! And get this: today we went out on a trail ride and we wound up surrounded by sharp thorny briar bushes. My heart broke when I felt the thorns catching on my breeches especially since it was the first time I got to wear them but when I got back to the barn my husband and I searched and searched and didn't find a single snag, hole, rip, or any evidence of damage at all!  I actually have a nasty scratch on my hip where a thorn made it through the fabric but there's no outward damage at all. Crazy!  I'm singing the praises of these breeches to everyone within earshot. I love 'em!  Thanks again for all your help. Happy New Year.”

Gretchen I.P. in New York - 12/2006


“I had been watching your  advertisement in Dressage Today or USDF Connections for a while and been telling myself I was going to get a pair and try them out. I finally bought a pair that was going to be for my daughter for Christmas from a tack store nearby. The tack store owner had a pair of her own and was telling me how wonderful they were. I tried them on and decided to keep them for myself! So I ended up getting FITS breeches for both me and my daughter! Word of mouth is also a great seller for a wonderful product. They won't be the last pair I buy!"

Gretchen E. in South Carolina - 12/2006


I love the fit of FITS! They are so aptly named. You just throw your leg over the saddle and you are securely and correctly positioned, ready to ride. Until you've ridden in them you cannot possibly know how great they are. I have always bought the best breeches I could find, regardless of price. And I think FITS are better than any other breech I have ever worn. They really do have a superior design for comfort and performance.

D. Jackson in Montana - 11/2006


I wore your britches and LOVE them.  I am not a big fan of full seats and have many of them but have never liked even the most expensive ones.  But leaving the leather off the crotch and that articulated fanny makes all the difference.  I am not kidding, I actually rode better because of your breeches yesterday.

Irene F. in Maryland - 11/2006


I am very pleased with my riding breeches. The quality and workmanship is superior to any breeches I have purchased. They are also very comfortable

L. Robertson in Canada - 08/2006


I don't just ride in your breeches I spend my ENTIRE weekends in them--from the moment I wake up until I go to bed 15-16hours later. I'm in the car driving 1.5 hours just to get to the barn then from the tack shops to Tractor Supply, lunch, etc. I'm hauling bales, I'm washing horses, I'm slathering hoof dressings and  poultices, I'm climbing fences and gates, I'm bent over hooking up my trailer, in other words I'm bending, stretching, sitting for periods of time, and flat out abusing my breeches for 12-14 hours a day each weekend. And when I wash them (by hand in Woolite) they always dry looking brand--well, relatively--new. They're tough as nails.

Gretchen in New York - 09/2006


What do I do with all the other breeches in my closet now that I ride with my FITS?  (That's how I feel) I don’t want to ride in anything else.

Julie K. in Oregon - 09/2006


I love my FITS breeches because they are like a second skin. They don’t bind or bother me. They are so comfortable and they help me with extra stick when Joey jumps really big.

Lizzie S. in Oregon - 08/2006


Dear FITS - WOW I received my first pair of FITS breeches today. They are so comfortable I didn't want to take them off. Thanks for a wonderful new product!

AJB in Texas - 08/2006


Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know I received the FIT breeches and because I was off to a equestrian vacation with some girlfriends in the Tuscan valley of Italy, I took them with me to try.  Loved them!  By far the most comfortable and flattering pair of breeches I've had on, lots of compliments.

Cyndi in Colorado - 07/2006


I love my knee patch FITS breeches!  They are by far the most comfortable I have worn and I love the fact that they don't pull apart at the crotch like ALL of the other breeches do!  How clever to create the seams in such a way that there's no natural stress point there.

Suzanne P. - 06/2006


Hi!  I just wanted to give you some feedback on these breeches. I just ordered a pair through Equestrian Collections. I absolutely love them!  I'm a large framed person and finding good quality breeches that fit correctly are very difficult to come by. I randomly ordered 7 pairs of full seat breeches and these won hands down. I wore them to the barn to ride in for the first time yesterday. Everyone loved the technology, fit on me, design of the seat, just incredible workmanship. One of my friends said it was too bad that one of the leading manufacturer's of sportswear didn't get involved with designing riding apparel a long time ago. But I see by your website that you too felt the same way. I'm happy to see that you've got other colors to choose from. I'll be ordering more soon. Thanks again for the fantastic product!

Debbie H. in Virginia - 06/2006


I can ride a deep seat in these breeches like no other I have ever owned. The fact that the full seat is not connected through the crotch seems obvious now, but no one else seemed to be able to see it before you. The thinner fabric on the calves is great in our hot South Texas heat.  My riding friends laughed at me at first with all of my "patches", but at the last riding clinic a few were asking for your website!

Kathryn in Texas - 05/2006


The breeches are super-duper—I have been wearing them all day! No more tight crotch! and I was worried that every lump in my body would show through but they don't—isn't technology amazing.

Margaret in New Jersey - 05/2006


I ordered a pair of these a few months ago and love them, hence the new order. (2 more pair ) Fit beautifully and do not rub in the crotch.

Leslie in Maryland - 05/2006


I wore the white FITS breeches to my last show and LOVED them. They're very comfortable and I love the sticky-ness of the seat. They're also very nice looking - the fabric is nice and the lines are very clean. Quite a few people asked me about them and I passed on your business card. Everyone wanted to feel the material of the seat, which caused something of a scene...  :)  I will  definitely continue showing in them.

Courtney Budd in Florida - 05/2006


I got to ride in my FITS breeches yesterday. Wow! They are SO comfy and I love the stick!! I am definitely a fan! I rode in a traditional pair of full seats yesterday too as a direct comparison & they weren't nearly as sticky. You've definitely created a superior product.

Lauren B. in Washington - 01/2006


I am extremely pleased with my new breeches.  The ordering process over the the internet was easy and the breeches came very quickly.  The fit is just perfect (xs) and they are very comfortable.  I like the way they spread in the crotch since the deerskin in not one continuous piece. My previous favorite breeches were ___ cotton french terry.  That fabric is very comfortable but doesn't wear very well.  I think the FITS will last much longer and they are much more stylish and the seams are more flattering.  I think they will be much more comfortable in summer weather

Valerie C. in California - 01/2006


I really like my FITS PerforMAX Breeches and am recommending them to my friends. They are so much better in the crotch area than other breeches because they don't have a seam that pulls up into that sensitive area.  I also really like the perforated leather.

Judy G. in Missouri - 01/2006


Just a note to say I wore my new FITS breeches last Sat in a lesson and they were wonderful!  Best fit I've ever had and they feel like silk.

Hope  P. in Montana - 01/2006


I really enjoy my FITS breeches.  I do not normally like a full seat breech because there is no stretch in the "seat" and it makes it hard to move around in.  With the way your seat is split, they stretch and move as if there were no full seat at all.  The leather has stayed soft and very pliable, and the color has stayed true - both the leather and the fiber.

Colleen G. in Missouri - 01/2006


“I really like my FITS breeches. I wear them with long johns under them to keep me warm in the winter and they are still thin enough to fit easily into my boot. I prefer them over any other pant during this cold weather. The full seat is really comfortable and very sticky. I typically am a little braver when the horses are a bit high if I have them on. Overall they seem like a great riding pant.”

“I am even more excited my FITS  winter breeches than I was the summer - if that is possible.  I wore them all day at the barn, came home, raked leaves, then walked the dog - all without changing out of my cozy winter breeches.  Normally the first thing I do when I get home is peel off my breeches so this is a serious compliment.”

Janet Aungier in Oregon, USDF Bronze, Silver Medallist, Trainer, Instructor - 11/2006


Finally a pair of breeches that fit and are comfortable! Thank you for all of your hard work and thoughtfulness you put into the design and fabric. The best part is no rubbing seams and freedom of movement. You have produced breeches that out perform any others. All the ladies in my barn have at least one pair. You have spoiled us for anything else.

S. Boone in Oregon - 11/2006


If equestrians are athletes, then we should have attire that is comfortable and appropriate for our sport. I have often wondered why someone hasn't developed a riding pant that is as comfortable as a second skin. Lightweight, moisture wicking, and with a great fit. Until F.I.T.S. PerforMAX™, there have been very few options for riders, and most do not allow for maximum movement and agility...

Adrienne in New Jersey - 05/2006


Just a note to tell you how much I enjoy your PerforMAX™ Full Seat breeches.  They felt like "home" the first time I put them on. I didn't want to take them off after my ride.  There was no schooching around to get comfortable, no saggy crotch, no adjusting and readjusting to position patches and seams. They felt great and rode great.  Thank you for a great product.  You can be sure all of my friends will be hearing about them.  I also gave a lady in our barn info on your breeches. She currently has ___ breeches as does my trainer. My original order was for 2 pair - one for me and one for my trainer. Needless to say my trainer loves yours much better than her ___ therefore my friend is interested in the PerforMAX™ after hearing our accolades

Barb G. in Pennsylvania - 12/2005


I was really pleased with the way the breeches conformed to my shape without bunching or pinching. The breathable deerskin is heaven-sent and allows all the appropriate stretching and bending, and the grip-ability was spectacular. To top it off, they are quite fashionable and I get compliments every time I wear them!

Heather C. in Washington - 12/2005


I love my new FITS breeches.  They are the first truly comfortable full-seat breech that gives me great grip with no uncomfortable seams and full range of motion.  I will live in them from hot summer days to cold snowy winter nights!

Fran W. in Oregon - 12/2005


Now that I have ridden in my FITS breeches for the past few days, I like them even more. Truly, the breech is very athletic looking and feeling; I will probably wear the earth colored breech on bike rides as well.  The breeches are great with tall boots... both jumping and dressage. Thanks again ...I really think that you are on to something here, especially targeting the athlete.

Lisa M. in  Oregon - 11/2005


These breeches fit extremely well and are very comfortable.  I find that the grip is so good I seldom have to take my leg off my horse to reposition it.  I love how well they breathe and how well I can move in them. I actually feel safer when I am riding a hot horse in my FITS breeches because of the superior grip.

Bernadine Diers, Trainer in Oregon - 07/2005


How many breeches have I bought and worn once because they turned out to be uncomfortable to ride in? I'm afraid to count.  FITS breeches feel like they were made for my body… really tailored to my proportions.  And I love the color selection – rich and earthy.  The price is just right too

Tracy F. in Oregon - 07/2005


I really like the streamlined look and feel of the breeches.They are very flattering and comfortable. The breeches feel like they really move with your body yet have stick in the saddle.
