Riding Jean Wrangler Kimes Ranch Cowgirl Magazine

When searching for the perfect pair of riding jeans, there’s a lot that a cowgirl must consider. First of all, the quality of material obviously dictates how long a pair of jeans will last. Doesn’t it make more sense to spend more money on a great pair of jeans rather than spending money each year replacing low-quality jeans?

Second, are the jeans practical? Many new riders wear their everyday jeans when they first start riding, oftentimes with bling on the pockets, which can be highly damaging to a saddle.

Finally, depending on what type of work or showing you’ll be doing, it’s important to understand what style of jeans is trending and relevant; this is especially important if you’re part of the horse show world.

Thankfully, there are currently great options on the market for cowgirls who are searching for jeans that will last. Without further ado, take a look at these five-star riding jeans!

“A great staple to add to your wardrobe. The Alex is a slouchy fit. This jean is made from 100% premium cotton denim. A light hand sanding gives this jean stylish detailing.” – Kimes Ranch.

“Great riding jeans! A bit slender in the hip (which I need), comfortable waist and a bit of stretch to hold their shape. I’m a 32″ inseam and get the 34″ for the perfect riding length. No bling means no risk to the saddle leather. These are my favorite riding jeans. I have 2 pairs.” – Amazon Reviewer.

Personally, I own several different styles of jeans, but this pair is my ultimate go-to, as can be seen below! I wear these jeans for informal tasks like schooling horses in a round-pen, but I also wear them at horse shows, most recently during a ranch riding competition.
