    Default Breeches for Dressage - Kerrits Sit Tight?

    Hey all! I found an awesome deal on Kerrits Sit Tight Supreme pants today and picked up a white pair for dressage. Then it dawned on me...is the black full seat on these too untraditional? I know, I know, this might be a lame question but I like to be traditional and I grew up riding with strict Russian dressage trainers who would probably have had a stroke at the sight of a black seat on white breeches. Opinions? I love my other Kerrits pants and I couldn't resist the sale!

    My daughter used to compete in them.

    I see a fair number of folks at every event in contrasting full seats. No biggie.

    (I do find the material on the Sit Tights to be toooooo grippy for my taste, though.)

    Thank you both! I'm riding in them tomorrow to see how I like them because I've heard similar opinions on the stickiness. Crossing my fingers that they work out alright!

    I compete in them, although I prefer the tan. White is slightly too see through and gets dirty too easily for me.

    Never had a negative comment.
