Love them or hate them, rust breeches are a real trend with a strong following. These vintage-look breeches even at one point had their own dedicated active Facebook page, “Bring Back RUST Breeches.”

For those who love the style most, we collected some imagery of riders who pulled off the look in style.


Kimberly Maloomian is a rust breeches diehard, and she sported them with success at the World Equestrian Center – Ocala. She also shared #rustorbust sightings at Princeton.

You did rock them, Liz Houley-Glassman!

Nona Garson and Winn Alden shared lovable throwbacks of their rust looks aboard memorable mounts Attaboy and Sunnyside Up, respectively.

From the Bernhard family photo vault: Holly Bernhard was a stylist in rust breeches, including at Devon (right photo) aboard Peruvian Hobo.

Andrew Ryback doesn’t miss a trick! This “Horse Show Photo of the Day” from the World Equestrian Center—Ocala in January caught the rust look in action!

As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words!”


So, do you have a pair of rust breeches in your closet? Or are you Google searching now to get a pair?
