Christin (aka Pixie Caramelle's Ma): 3 Pearls of Wisdom
So I have thought carefully
I’ve realised that whatever I do, I need to be someone I can live with.
Over time I have worked out that I only feel deep shame and regret if I have been unkind, dishonest, or let someone down.
Those are my values.
So long as I am kind, honest and keep my word, I am who I want to be. What is most important to me is not achievements, but character. Everyone’s values and priorities are different, and that’s ok, but I believe that self-respect comes from identifying one’s central values and living according to them.
Two other things I’ve worked out:
Success as part of a team is so much sweeter than individual victory. Shared triumph is filled with the joy of camaraderie. Individual triumph is lonely. I’d rather help someone win than win myself.
And The most rewarding person to complete with and compare yourself to is the you of yesterday. Am I better today than I was the day before? Have I learned something? Am I braver? Faster? More accurate? If not, do I need help, do I need a rest, or is it time to re-evaluate my goals?
There you are, three pearls of wisdom for the price of one!
Big hugs, Pixie’s Ma (Christin)

I’m 5’5” 140ish lbs
Ordered size 12 they fit very well
Even in my thighs and knees where I have problems finding a comfortable unsausage casing fit !!
The jeans are at the tailors being shortened to fit my 30” inseam
Have not been in the saddle with them on yet excited to try them out !!!
These riding pants fit like a glove but are super comfy to ride in for hours on the trails. Well made and strong but flexible material. As the title says they are "Perfect!" Made for lady riders. I'm very pleased!
Just love these pants. They are very comfortable to ride in. They have the stretch in them that they won’t constrict your movement. Plus no inseam to rub your legs raw. Love them so much I purchased a second pair.
These are now my favourite pair of riding pants. Super comfy to ride and walk around in. The material is strong but flexible. The tummy support is truly awesome but has enough flexibility to be comfy when riding. Perfect! I’ll buy them again. Thanks Ride Proud ❤️
Exceeded my expectations! Initially I ordered the Horizon and was so surprised with how fast they arrived but unfortunately I ordered the wrong size so when I went to re order my correct size it was sold out. I didn't want to wait as I had a camping trip coming up so I ordered the Trail in navy. Again they arrived within a week which is shocking as I live in Canada. The fit is perfect for me as the Trail is shorter in the rise then the Horizon. The material seems more dense and not as stretchy and the bootcut is not as wide and flared at the bottom. I love how the full seat is very generous as well. For me the length of leg is perfect while in the saddle. Overall I can't fault these pants or the customer service. I ride numerous horses in the day and it's a relief that I am not having to take my tall boots or half chaps on and off as I do regular with my breeches. For a reference in sizing I am 5'6" and weigh 142lbs and I am wearing the size 10 Aus. I ride dressage and have a jumping background and for more fun I like to take my horses camping. I will be buying another pair in brown! Thanks Colleen and Ride Proud.
