New “sticky knee” breeches — designed to help grip and stability in the saddle — are now available from online equestrian retailer Performance Rider.

The “GPA Skin Evo Lady Breeches” are made from a stretchy cotton, polyamide and elastane mix, with silicone knee patches.

“The knee patches assist in securing the perfect position, whether jumping, eventing or doing dressage, whilst still maintaining a professional and streamlined look,” said a spokesman for Performance Rider.

The breeches come in white, with a choice of regular and long lengths and cost £155.
