We're a family owned business, born and bred in Queensland, Australia - both the business and the family. We live on our little property on the Tablelands behind Cairns, with our horses and dogs.
Ride Proud Clothing was borne of necessity.
It came about simply because I couldn’t find what I wanted to wear. I’m not a dressage diva and quite frankly, my joddie days are behind me – if I ever had them. I’m not a cowgirl, that’s for sure. However, I found myself in either jodhpurs, or jeans, and comfortable in neither.
What I needed was bootleg jodhpurs. Let me explain. I wanted bootleg riding pants with all the features of a good quality pair of jodhpurs but the style of a fine pair of bootleg jeans.
So, with my husband, Colin and daughter, Celeste onboard I set about designing my own. I wanted quality, comfort and style in a purpose built riding pant. Together we've made Riding Proud Clothing what it is to date, but we're not done yet. In fact we're only just beginning.
We're really proud of our riding pants and we hope you love them.
Super pleased with these pants! The fit is comfortable and flattering, good quality material I expect will last for ages. Love the thigh pockets for my phone and the colour is great. I’d say these are a generous fit (size 14). Depending on the supplier I am anywhere between a 12 and 18 (I’ve tried breeches of various brands which are uncomfortable in a size 18!) I feel like I could try a 12 but very happy with what I got.
I love my ride proud pants this is my 4 th different pair and I am never disappointed I think with each new release I fall further in love with ride proud clothing and don’t like to ride in anything else!
The great things are comfy and flattering!
True to size!
I get compliments all the time!!!
Best customer service ever ❤️
Excellent customer service and could not be happier with the quality and care of my order. I have ordered a total of 3 riding pants from Ride Proud Clothing and they are by far my favourite. They are extremely comfortable and would definitely recommend them. Great for long rides; love the colours as well.
I have lived in many different countries and have kept trying different riding pants for a long time. These are by far my favorites and I can't say enough about the quality, the thoughtful design and the super pleasant experience with Colleen's customer service. I will keep coming back for more!
I finally received my equitation pants, and they fit beautifully. I have not tried them out yet.
The first ones sent were too small. I should have paid the exorbitant return price for faster shipping. Instead, the parcel went by boat, SLOW boat, to Australia! Sitting in every port for days.
Coleen was excellent to deal with at her end, thank you very much Colleen! And for her patience, and quick replies.
They pants are very good quality. I am looking forward to using them for a long time
This is so cool. I am taking it away with me in January when I do my 6 day horse trek adventure up the top of the north island. Hopefully I can do another one later on in the year in the snowy river area. Waiting on dates . In the mean time Im going to start adding things like pics etc for my holiday. Very impressed. Now I have two lol
I was very impressed by the service. After submitting my order I received an email to verify the sizing which I had initially entered incorrectly as I was ordering from Canada. The pants fit great, are very flattering, are extremely well made and have great pockets. I shall be ordering my next pair very soon.
Finally riding pants made for mature woman. I purchased the Trainers and they fit like a glove. Not binding at the waist and they don’t roll down when you bend over. I had to shorten them but had plenty of room leaving the pant holder that goes inside the boot. These pants are very well made high quality worth the money. Shipping was quick with great customer service notifying me every step of the way.
I definitely recommend.
These riding pants are very comfortable . At first I had ordered the wrong size but as soon as I contacted them, they said send them Back in a return bag. They exchanged them the same day. Great service.
That ☝🏼 was written when we first kicked off, about 4 years ago, and although it's all true, there is of course, much more to the story. Most of which was shared to our FaceBook page at the time, but I'm going to share it again with you here.
I came back to horses and riding because it's the only thing my daugher ever wanted to do. At the time we were heavily into motorbikes, camping, hiking and waterskiing, and to have a daughter arrive who only ever wanted a horse kinda threw us sideways for a while.
I resisted. I had a horse as a child and knew where it lead. Her father did not, in fact he encouraged it. Within
