    Cool Cute colored full seat breeches?

    Anyone know where you can get nice (preferably cool) full-seats in colors other than neutrals?

    I'm just looking for something fun and cute to school in.

    Hi Beau,

    Dressage Extensions has many nice ones. I have the plum FITS ones, but they no longer offer that color. Those are my favorites. I also saw some nice plaid combinations by RTS and interesting Pikeur combinations. Happy shopping!

    Look into Tropical Rider for some unconventional solid colors and RTS breeches for plaids and prints. Besides being nice to look at they are both really good quality and will last you a long time.

    She can get almost anything you want... I have a pair of purple Euro Stars, Houndstooth full seats and several two-tone from her. It is like a personal shopper for dressage!

    Although I have to say I had a VERY bad experience with them. Not entirely the seller's fault (more her supplier) but it was one of the worst sales transactions I ever personally experienced.

    I got adorable plaid ones from Dover. Not as comfy as the FITS, but nothing really is! They've only been worn for a couple months for schooling, but are holding up quite well.

    I have also had great luck with European Breeches. She has helped me find anything I special request, as soon as she can.

    You said that her supplier was to blame, so why are you suggesting that she was bad?

    I know she guarantees a refund, even out of her own pocket. My friend was away in Asia for 4 months and when she got back, didn't like the breeches she special ordered. EB accepted the return!

    I would say that she is as wonderful to work with as Dover and would recommend her to anyone.

    I bought a pair of the red striped LAVA and had no issues with a quick easy transaction. These are defintely funky and fun and allways elicit some conversation

    Talking

    I thought the red lava ones were quite amazingly fun, too. I wonder if this design is the same as the famous pink striped pair at the World Cup? I need to research this! Wouldn't they be fun to practice freestyle!

    The red LAVAs are great considering only $100 with shipping included. They are a little heavy in the fabric so super for fall-winter-spring teamed up a black or caramel sweater. They look great on a cool summer am with a plain yellow mock zip short sleeve too. They are made in England and put together well.

    only problem.....I have this undeniable craving for popcorn when I'm done riding if I wear these

    Noticed that european breeches was having a breast cancer fundraiser... and, you know me, I LOVE a breast cancer fundraiser!

    Anything that you buy from her in pink will benefit breast cancer research!

    Thinking of asking her for a pair of those eurofit white show breeches with the pink leather full seat
