Although these are not called "riding pants" I call them my "riding pants". I think they look and fit like them. You can't really tell from this picture but they are made out of a nice, thick material. Combo rayon, nylon, spandex. I love them SO much that I have worn them three days in a row. They are the BEST! So comfortable and can be dressed up or down. To me... nothing is better than something you can wear a t-shirt and sweatshirt with during the day and then throw a blouse and a pair of heels come night and transform the look completely! On sale right now for $29.99 for black or $24.99 for gray. Click here for more details or find them at your local GAP store.
