Hi everyone!

I was wondering where I could find ridiculously colored, not so expensive ($120 and under) breeches, aside from the normal green, blue, and coffee.

I love crazy colored pants/gear. Last winter I wore nothing but black, pretty much head to toe... Not because I wanted to, but apparently all outerwear/winter gear i own is black? Thank goodness for my colorful summer wardrobe!
An old boarder friend got her wacky colored breeches on sale at tack of the day. I keep checking for some (and fully prepared to hide behind "ah well, they were on sale!" as an excuse when my more conservative trainer cringes at them!)

I am pretty sure my trainer knows that I am not, uhh.... Typical, and so such outrageous pants would most likely not surprise her. Besides, trainers are trainers, not fashion police!

You can dye white or beige breeches to any color you want. I'm not sure how, but I boarded with a woman who dyed old show breeches purple, green, blue, fuscia, etc. and used them for schooling. They looked like anyother colored breech (no blotchy or anything) and didn't bleed or fade. :)

I actually kind of like the beige and yellow bicolor breeches (http://www.justcavallor.com/shop/documents/shop_page.php?action=item&iid=35&cat=1&page=1&subcat=+Riding+Breeches+for+women)... I don't know why the model looks so pissed, maybe she's just not a fan... :)

If you could stand the saddleseat bell bottoms,:eek: ModJods has some pretty unusual patterns - stripes, plaids, flames (?). You can generally find some used too. They might do something for the much staider sport horse set if you ask. :)

I think it may have something to do with that flap between her torso and her elbow. :lol:

That is the worst Photoshopping... how do you leave an extra arm in? :)

I kind of love the bright green breeches, wish I could justify them!

Oh, I didn't see that, too funny.

Probably more than you're looking to spend, but FITS come in some neat colors. I, personally, rock the "eggplant". Looks great with a pink shirt :cool:

little above your price point, but sometimes on sale:

Very inexpensive in purple: http://www.lexingtonhorse.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=6320

In the UK, but you can look by color: http://www.jodhpurs.co.uk/shop_by_colour/purple/index.html

Now to add to the challenge...anyone know of some good colors in full seat?

These would be right up your alley!

Bright and w/knee patches not to much $$$:

ETA for Henry: the tropical riders come in full seat, too!

One day recently I rolled into my lesson in my purple houndstooth Kerrits and a bright orange shirt... hadn't really noticed the combo when I threw them in my bag this morning, but my trainer commented that I looked so very summery! :)

I have these (http://kerrits.com/Equestrian-Apparel/pc/Flow-Rise-Performance-Tight-25p2516.htm) in purple houndstooth and grey and love them. They also have the bright blue. Not crazy bright, but enough to keep me entertained. :)

But you better believe I'm getting some of those green/purple things from up above!

I second Tropical Riders! Watch for sales on their website.....some great deals to be had at times. Lovely well made breeches, TR's are all I will buy now.

Hmmm.... Dying would be an interesting option. Perhaps I shall try that! Thanks for all the suggestions. I find those tropical riders particularly appealing:winkgrin:

I have some that are black with a red bandanna print "full seat" that I got from Horseloverz.com years ago. Don't know what they have right now, but they always have nice variety.

That's what I'm looking for - custom full seats. I want navy breeches with Kelly Green pinstripe and full seat area. :)

Smartpak will do custom kneepatch breeches and they carry the TS low rise in something like 17 different colors.

Equissentials will do custom color combinations: http://www.equissentials.net/products-page-2/ladies-riding-breeches/ladies-full-seat-breeches/blue-deerskin-full-seat-breeches/

Pikeurs come in a broad range of colors (including fuschia): http://www.classicdressage.com/catalog/index.php?CG_ID=10&CS_ID=52

I've actually seen a pair like that! They were approx. $300 and at a horse show, so no idea who the vender was, but they were snazzy!
