I have been in the horse business all my life and have trained and competed horses in everything from Team Penning and barrels, to Standardbred racing. From 100 mile endurance rides, to Equine Theatre to Grand Prix Dressage
The right apparel and equipment is always necessary and appreciated by any professional and FITS breeches are just that. Designed with the riders comfort and functionality in mind these clothes are very user friendly. They are long lasting, flattering, easy to work in and care for and feel like yours the second you put them on.
I had tried the original FITS years ago and was pleasantly surprised when I put on these newer models. They could have been designed by me, for me that's how happy I was both walking around and riding in them. I have some good looking designer breeches in my closet and once in a while I pull them down wondering why they are stuffed way up on that shelf. Half way through the day I remember. They are no fun to ride and work in. No such problems with FITS. If you have never tried FITS or have not ridden in a pair lately do yourself the favor- Yvonne Barteau
