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!"
First I’d like to say I love these pants they are made well with good quality materials.
I’ve purchased three different pairs of riding pants I lost a little weight and had to get them altered. I called about a purchase I had made in the same size different pants. I emailed about belt loops and sent a picture. I was emailed back and given a phone number. I did call and was given wonderful advice about the size. They changed my Order to a smaller size, glad I had the conversation. The pants fit great. Again I love these pants.The young lady I spoke with was so nice I just can’t say enough good things! I totally recommend these pants.
I could not be happier that I found this company and bought these britches. As a woman-sized trail rider in her 60’s, I have worn the same worn-out jeans for years, the only ones I had that were comfortable and long enough to ride in. I felt I looked like a homeless person, and they finally started falling apart. As an early holiday gift to myself, I finally decided some decent riding apparel was in order, and got me 2 pairs. Do I like them? You bet my suede-covered fanny I do! The stretch is great, the pockets are great, the length and under-foot strap were just right, and I was so happy I ordered the jeans, too! I feel like a grown-up horsewoman and the tight-weave fabric should stand up to the elements for a long time. Thanks, Ride Proud Clothing!
Highly recommend RP riding trousers. Very comfortable both for riding and everyday wear. As I ride alone the phone pocket is ideal for emergency. Like the pants so much have bought 6 pairs over the years.
Just received my Gen 2 horse riding pants. Look forward to wearing them riding. Had to exchange the first pair as wasn't sure on size as am in Canada so different sizing. Customer service was awesome in exchanging for a different size. I will have to get used to full seat panels. Thank you for the great quality and customer service.
I have been looking for a long time for comfortable riding pants and I am so happy that I found these! They are most comfortable pants I have ever worn. ¨The quality and style are outstanding. I am a customer for life!
I wanted these pants to fit so badly as they are well made and so cute. Even after sizing up the thighs were too snug and the waist way to big. I am a U.S size 12-14 with curvy hips and a smaller waist. If this is your shape the special edition may not work; Colleen did warn me 😏 How about a special edition for the curvy crowd?😉
I ordered these pants with high hopes for a comfortable alternative to breeches. I have found them to be stylish, comfortable and warm! Well worth the money, shipping was prompt and they are exactly as described. Thank you so much,
