Sonya puts the Mountain Horse Evelyn Breeches to the test when schooling and jumping her horses at home. These breeches feature a full seat silicone print which offers extra grip and security in the saddle. Here’s how these breeches fared with Sonya…
I really love these breeches; they looked great and fit really well – the fabric is tight and doesn’t wrinkle without being unflattering. The silicone detail also provides a really secure seat. They’ve become my ‘go to’ jodhpurs and are a definite favourite to ride in, so much so that I’m sad every time they are in the wash. However, they do seem to be in the wash quite often due to the number of times they are being worn. Speaking of which, they wash and tumble dry brilliantly.
The only slightly negative factor is that when these are brand new or freshly washed and the silicon is clean, they can make a slight noise when in rising trot as the silicon has made traction with the saddle fairly firmly. Not loud enough for anyone around you to hear, but my newly backed four-year-old definitely noticed!
