Ninon Castex tested it for you
The professional riders test for you the Harcour products!
Ninon Castex, is a promising young show jumping rider. Having represented the French Pony team several times as well as being individual and team European champion twice Ninon was an obvious choice for us to ask to test our bestselling Harcour breeches, the model Jalisca.

We tell you everything!

Jalisca breeches are one of Harcour's must haves.
They boast comfort and elasticity and are becoming an essential for many equestrians wardrobes. They are available in a good colour range meaning you can have them for shows as well home and training.
The Jalisca are now available in both Children and Adult sizes.
Ines, Harcours designer, tells us how the product was born:

We aimed to develop equestrian breeches that were comfortable, technical and elegant and of course with a special "Harcour touch". We made JALISCA breeches unique to Harcour ensuring that the design met with all the riders requirements. The unique fabric we used is not only water repellent but also breathable and elastic giving maximum stretch and comfort for the rider. Jalisca breeches are also known for their outstanding "Grip System" which is composed of 18 silicone layers on the inner knee area giving maximum adhesion and grip to the saddle.

Ninon, in your opinion, what are the "plus points" of the products?


For riders, the choice of the fabric for Competition breeches is essential. White breeches are mostly transparent and when the fabric is too thin you can see everything! I am delighted that finally I have found the Harcour Jalisca breeches. They are bright white and not at all transparent, very elastic and extremely comfortable.

The cut

I really love the cut of the Harcour Jalisca breeches. The cut is SO important. The waist is a little higher than the average breeches which is so practical because as all riders do, I have to regularly bend up and down adjusting equipment etc and they are just perfect, the waist stays close to the body unlike other brands that can gape at the back, and they give excellent support of the pelvis. The waistband is soft and flexible making them super comfortable to wear.


For riders, buying breeches is a very important purchase, an investment and essential that they last a long time. For me, one of the biggest points of the Jalisca Breeches is that they are extremely easy to maintain. After each show, the Jalisca breeches are washed as instructed at 30C and the stains wash out really easily. Everyone knows what our breeches have to endure and what condition they can be in by the end of a long show... especially when riding outside in all sorts of weather and the Jalisca stood up to the test.

The fabric

I particularly like the water repellant feature of the fabric used for the Jalisca breeches that allow me to ride outside whatever the weather. I can wear them during a rain shower and amazingly the water just flows along and off the breeches and I found they protect me from cold. No need to wear waterproof breeches every day that are less comfortable and of course more expensive. For me the Jalisca breeches are my favourite choice for everyday.
Would you recommend Jalisca Breeches to other riders?
YES, my Jalisca breeches will be coming everywhere with me whether at home or on my International Tours . I'm very satisfied, I love the quality and the comfort and after riding in the Jalisca I find it impossible to ride without the silicone knee grip.
" I greatly recommend it! "
