Why do riders wear breeches?

This allows riders to sit and ride more comfortably. Riders can now concentrate on performing and riding instead of pinching, chafing and sliding in the saddle.

What is the purpose of riding breeches?

Breeches are the athletically-inspired pant that a person wears when riding a horse.

Special fabric designed for gripping is incorporated into the pant as well.
