Equine Couture Calabasas Denim Breeches Review

Eli might not touch a saddle for weeks or months, but that doesn’t mean I can’t ride. It’s a little bit of a disappointment to get a new pair of breeches only to find your horse will be taking a summer vacation. But, I have still managed to wear the Calabasas denim breeches a few times in horsey environments, and even rode in them! Just, I didn’t ride Eli. Perhaps more about that later.

Grey denim goes with everything.

For now let’s focus on how much I love grey denim and how much I love breeches so when you put the two together, obviously I want that. And the Calabasas breeches look like denim but feel like breeches — they are surprisingly lightweight. Realistically, I don’t see myself wearing these in the heat of summer, but we’ve had a fairly mild spring with plenty of chilly mornings and these breeches have been perfect for that.

I wore them ALL DAY on Saturday and the thing about grey is you can get it dirty and no one will know.

NONE of my breeches have Velcro. Love that.

I also like that these breeches have a Euro seat instead of back pockets. It feels a little more streamlined. After wearing them all day, they still fit pretty well. I worried at first the material would stretch too much and thought I might have needed to order a size down, but they stretched only a little — about as much as any pair of breeches might if you’re in them all day.

These breeches also have silicone knee patches, which gives you a little extra security in the saddle. Which I may need once Eli can go back to light work …

The Calabasas breeches are available at breeches.com and come in regular blue denim, too, if that’s more your style.

  1. Nice to know they are fairly lightweight! I was avoiding them because denim and my saddle seat don’t get along well. But if they’re more like regular breeches, they could work.

    1. They are really not much like denim other than the look. I have a Devoucoux that gets marked up if I look at it funny and the breeches don’t seem to do any harm to it.

  2. Those seem nice!
    Although, not on the subject of these particular breeches, but I FINALLY decided to try the GHM Add Back breeches when they went on sale at RW. I have to review them soon because I do like them! I was worried about the fit but they’re doing really well so far!
