  • If you're after a shorter leg you might be lucky enough to find your size here.

  • These Gen1 Trail Riding Pants are discounted, and once they're gone, they're gone.  


    Horse Riding Pants with Split at Hem from Ride Proud 

    This style features a waistband with keepers for a belt and a little D Ring at the front to attach your keys. The split at the hem allows room for the sometimes wider, comfortable western boots that we choose for a trail ride.

    Our trail horse riding pants include the safety feature of a thigh pocket, large enough to hold a mobile phone, just in case your horse decides to head home without you.

    The trail horse riding pants have inbuilt tummy support, full suede seat and the underfoot keeper.

  • It's a personal thing. Some like clothing snug, some like them a little roomier, which is why our sizing covers a range.


    AUSTRALIAN / NZ SIZE 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22
    US / CAN SIZE 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18

    INSIDE LEG LENGTH 82 82 82 82 82 82 82 82 82


    If you fall right in the middle of the range, then go with that size. If you're towards the beginning of that range and like your pants a little more snug, then maybe going a size down might suit you better. Towards the top end and like a little more room, then try a size bigger. 

    You get the idea.

    Our long-legged riders will appreciate that we've included a 3cm hem together with a 2cm turn. Meaning essential you could drop the length another 4cm and still have a 1cm hem. 

    We're more than happy to exchange for a change of size if they don't fit exactly as you like them - providing they're returned to us in their original condition, as per our RETURNS POLICY.

     QUICK TIP:

    Chances are you'll take the same size here.

Genius design!

I love my new riding pants!!! Remembering your suggestion, I wore them around the house for a couple of hours. They’re so comfortable! Your design is genius! Colleen, shopping with you has been a lovely experience. The world would be a much more pleasant place with more people like you in it. Thank you!
Happy Holidays!

Debra, what a beautiful review, thank you!
I'm so pleased you took that advice. Often times when the fit appears perfect immediately, they end up too loose - depending how we like the fit of course.

True to the name

Great riding pants. Great fit and so comfortable to wear

Hi Marlene
Thank you! True to name - the Trail are perfect for the trail.

It is NOT cotton. False advertising. It is 100% polyester. (Australia)
Trail Gen 2

I love them I am very hippy so they fit beautifully over my bottom but because i hve a small waist they are big in the waist. I will just take them in. Fabulous thsnk you

Thank you for the 5 Star!
You really had me scratching my head. I thought your name was the title of your review for a minute, and I was thinking 'they're 60% cotton'.
So pleased you're happy with them. :)

Ruth Lau (New Zealand)

only just recieved so haven’t had achance to use yet as I had to have them taken up as they were too long . I’m wondering if they are going to be too hot for summer and if you do a lightweight version

Hi Ruth
You might be surprised with the fabric. We test rode it in North Queensland and settled on this composition after rejecting others. It has quite a high cotton content, but yes it is quite a solid weave to ensure it's durability.

Oh, and future reference, we have a local seamstress who may be able to help with the hemming if its a problem for you.


Lorraine Moleta (New Zealand)
Love everything! My new Horse Billy arrives today!

Thank you ever so much love you attention to me! My pants fit perfectly just a little long have worn my scarf twice
And began my journal Billy ! Can’t wait to give leather gift away for Xmas
Earrings and belt super tasteful as well
My sincere thanks sorry I took so long to get back because I was so excited when I found my parcel at my gate and more so when I opened it so lovingly wrapped
Kind Regards

Lorraine, I'm so pleased to hear you're happy. I loved packing up your big order and sending it away. It makes me happy to know some of it is being on gifted.

Helen Drawbert (United States)
Love my new pants!

Thank you, it took several attempts to get the right size fit…but so worth it. I am enjoying my new riding pants tremendously.

Helen, we got there!
Thank you for persevering. Online shopping brings its challenges, but when its worth it, its worth it. ❤️

Sandra Robinson (Australia)
Trail Gen 2 Pants

I bought these in Wheat. They are fabulous. I don’t wear pale coloured pants very often, but these pants have great support and do not show every lump 😉 I don’t usually need the stirrup and was pleasantly surprised to find a gap in the insert where I could tuck them up inside the leg. I have been too busy to take up the leg and have been folding them up too. The sturdy material stays in place so I can choose the length depending on the shoes I wear. This is my second pair of Ride Proud pants and I love them both.

Cathy Gromer (United States)
Riding pants

I rarely spend this much money on pants to ride my horses in, but these are exceptional. The quality is first class, and the workmanship is wonderful. They are a tiny bit snug for me, but instead of sending them back, I have vowed to lose 10lbs! They are that nice. The customer service has also been wonderful. When I lose the weight, I plan on ordering another pair in a different color!

Jennifer Barnes (Australia)
Trail Gen 2

I purchased a pair of Trail Gen 2 pants.
Fabulous fabric, quality made and can’t wait to test drive them. I’m very confident they will wear really well.
