    Default Spinoff of riding in rain: riding pants?

    So since it is such a rainy day here in the NE... And the indoor at the barn I teach at flooded due to a culvert backing up which meant we were outside in the rain....

    Any recommendations on a good not too expensive riding pant that is waterproof?
    I mean the kind that is put on over breeches.

    I have seen some online but I want to hear COTH reviews! Always real here! Lol!

    Posting here in eventing as ours is a 3 day sport and it never stays sunny for 3 days in a row for an event!

    Not sure about the cost relativity but
    Grand Prix Rain Pants are great during warmer weather

    I used to ride in North Face waterproofs over jeans when I worked out west during 'rainy season' - the kind without a mesh layer. It would look goofy but you could easily get half chaps over them because they are thin. And they worked - my jeans were bone dry underneath them even after getting caught out in a downpour. Mine are similar to this:

    I was on a riding trip in Spain this spring and it RAINED for days. Only person comfortable was woman in an Asmar long riding coat. It has a flair out in front and back so saddle and pants stay dry. I would buy this and maybe cheap pants. Expensive but worth it

    What about rainy weather show clothing? My last two shows have been freezing and/or raining and/or snowing and I have no idea what to wear to stay warm/dry and presentable.

    I've been lusting after the Kerrits Knickers for a while now:
    Sadly, at $89, they're not what I would call inexpensive, sigh. I'd love to find a cheaper version of these.

    Just found these:,en_US,pd.html
    Can't attest to fit or quality, but I've heard good things about Horze products. They're $45 vs Kerrit's $89, but also aren't full seat.
