Tottie’s ‘Holly Winter Breeches’ Product Review
Ruth is a 17 year old rider from North East Lincolnshire. She has been riding from the age of 4 which had led to equestrian being her ultimate passion.Equestrian bling is another one of her many passions as she takes pride in her turn out and always likes to look her best.
The infamous Holly Winter Breeches appear to have been an immediate success upon their release at the start of the winter. They are the comfiest breeches I own and the fact that they keep you both warm and dry is just wonderful. Pretty much all of us Tottie girls have them and if you cannot tell already...we absolutely love them! I honestly don’t know how I have coped for the past number of winters without these breeches because now I practically live in them. If you have not yet ordered any I hope this review will inspire you to do the right thing and go and get yours now!
With these breeches being fleece lined it means you no longer need to suffer from crumpled up thermals inside your ordinary breeches and saves you from the general discomfort of having to put that extra layer underneath. The fleece lining also helps you to avoid the ‘frozen thighs’ feeling. Have you ever noticed that when you take off your leg wear after riding on a relatively chilly day that your legs tend to be some strange shade of red? Well, not anymore!
These breeches are water resistant (yes you did read that correctly!) due to their softshell material. This makes it slightly more bearable to ride in the wetter weather and also makes those waterproof over-trousers redundant. Whether you are doing stable duties or riding, you will be kept warm and dry – so be thankful for these breeches as they are definitely a life saver! I tend to wear mine at work because I am required to do pick up droppings in some very saturated and muddy fields but when I wear these I am less bothered about the water splashing up my legs as I do not need to worry that it will soak in and leave a nice soggy patch - the water just runs off.
The stitching on Tottie’s Holly Winter Breeches is a lovely deep purple which adds a pop of colour to the main, block navy fabric. It also contrasts perfectly with the pink ankle cuffs that allow a close contact fit to avoid clumping under the boots. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, the stitching is durable. This means that even if your are unlucky enough to encounter an unfortunate tumble off your horse or pony, you can be sure that your dignity will remain in tact.

Until next time,
She has brought on a young mare (called Delli) in all aspects of riding since the summer of 2015 where jumping has been their most successful. Going from cat leaping over poles on the ground to clearing courses of 90cm and even qualifying and competing at the Horseware National Hunter Trial Series Championship Final at Eland Lodge in 2016. Their dressage has improved greatly too and they hope to gain more experience in this discipline throughout this new year.They are now members of the Brocklesby Hunt Pony Club and are looking forward to a successful 2017.
