The Equitation Horse Riding Pants: The Post Op Pants?
We received a very interesting Recommendation this week from a woman named Diane Montague. You'll find it interesting, I'm sure.
Full disclosure: Diane Montague is my friend.
In fact she's my oldest, no sorry, my longest friend.
We've been friends since long before this photo was taken of us in our early teens.
She's not the kind of friend who makes false statements, just to make you feel better though. I don't have friends like that.
She's more the kind of friend who says things like "... OMG, what the hell were you thinking?!" That's more the kind of friends I have.
If Diane is saying (or writing) it, you can take it as gospel.
We keep saying these pants are comfortable, particularly around the waist, this kind of proves it.
"I have had two pairs of Ride Proud pants for a while now and have loved them both for riding and just the comfort of wearing.
My reason for writing now.....
Well. Recently I had an emergency trip to hospital which resulted in me having my tummy opened up like a cleaned fish,(I think the surgeon is a fisherman). So...after a bit of time at home I had to venture out to town. What to wear?
Everything annoyed my wounds, and felt like a vice around my belly. It was cool and I couldn’t bare the thought of Jeans rubbing me. I finally decided bugger it, I have to go so grabbed my Equitation Riding Pants and a T-shirt and off I went... well OMG I can not say enough good things, the pants supported my stomach, so I didn’t have that drawing pain when I walked, the car ride was fine because I was supported! I could even get in and out without squawking. Now I know these are riding pants, and I wouldn’t ride in anything else, but ladies if for any reason you need support after surgery, these are the go to duds! After surgery pants with CLASS!"
PS: Diane is on the left and I'm the one on the right. The one needing a haircut, a bra and an attitude adjustment.
Ditto that for Diane.

Love My Ride Proud Pants!
I haven't ridden in them yet, but I can still tell that these are like nothing I've ever worn before, in quality, fit, and design. I'll not be stuffing this old butt into another pair of traditional breeches. Worth every penny!
I guess when you find the perfect pant to ride in, the only choice is “what colour next?!” And although going a light colour when your horse rolls in black dust may not have been a perfect choice by the end of the day - it does look great after a wash and when I head OUT on a ride at least!!
Two pairs now…. Still more colours to go (but I might just hold off for a little while???!!)
My jeans arrived during an ice storm. Today it’s a sunny 73 degrees and I finally got to ride. I understand why these Ride Proud jeans are loved!
Super comfortable, no bunching up, no digging into my hip bones. I love them.
These riding pants are fantastic ! I’m carrying a few extra lbs and they are very flattering! Love the suede seat . Attention to detail is excellent. Fabric —time will tell how durable they will be. I think they will be exceptional.
These are the best pants! I’ve never liked breeches, but riding in jeans isn’t ideal. These are the best of both worlds. The suede seat grips nicely, doesn’t rub anywhere. The pants fit amazing and are so comfortable. I love the thigh pocket when I ride out and need to take my phone with me. If I could give these pants ten stars I would!
My pants arrived and I am thrilled with the quality and fit, but the thing that I find the most important is the customer service from Colleen has been amazing from start to finish. Well done. Word of mouth goes a long way and I am chatting up Ride Proud clothing in my neck of the woods for sure.
I ordered my second pair of riding pants from Ride Proud recently. When I place the order I was contacted to suggest that I size down with the type that I ordered based on client feedback. They arrived at my home in Canada within two weeks and fit perfectly. I’m looking forward to getting back in the saddle (when the weather warms up) with my new jeans. Thank you, Colleen and the folks at Ride Proud. Margaret
I was impressed with how helpful Colleen at Ride Proud was with exchanging my Gen Trail pants. I live in Canada, so the sizes are different. I ordered a size 10 but received an Aus size 10, which was way too tight. I was confused and thought it very unfortunate considering the cost involved . Anyway I took a leap of faith several months later and asked if I could exchange, and she made it happen! The new pants arrived, and fit much better and are such excellent quality, I’m thrilled!
