When freedom calls and all you want to do is ride ...
These are our Original (Gen1) Trail Riding Pants. You'll find a few subtle differences to the Gen2, being the belt loops are slightly narrower on these the little, wee split at the bottom hem. The colours and sizes are exactly the same as the Gen2.
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.
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.
Mid rise waistband with Belt Keepers
Full Suede Seat
Seamless Inner Leg
Side Split at Hem
Inbuilt Tummy Support without compromising comfort
It's a personal thing. Some like clothing snug, some like them a little roomier, which is why our sizing covers a range.

INSIDE LEG LENGTH
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.
We've discovered that our sizing is very similar to Jeans West. If you happen to have a pair in your wardrobe, check the sizing.
Chances are you'll take the same size here. Message us if you're unsure though. We're always here to help.

I purchased the Trail Pants. I’ve tried them on and not that they are of a fantastic quality and fit well. My only issue is they are just so long - and am grappling with how to take them up to ensure the integrated underfoot keeper is not interfered with. Would be great if they were offered in different lengths: short, regular and long!
Margaret, thank you for the review, and I'm stoked you're happy with them.
As for the length, you may need to also shorten the underfoot keeper, or remove it?

Pen Cullen (Australia)
I hesitated about buying these riding pants on line as I often find pants too short. The pants are plenty long enough.
Thanks for your review Pen. Greatly appreciated.
Yevette Harrell (United States)
These pants are perfect! Comfortable, functional, just love them
Yvette, thank you!
That's exactly what we were hoping for when we designed these pants. Function, comfort - and style.
I'm so happy you're happy with them.
Marianne Maschi (Canada)
Trail riding pants
These pants are very well made, the fabric is snug but stretches and moves. I love them
Marianne, yes! If they're snug, they're a perfect fit.
Thank you for the review. You've made my day.

Love my Ride Proud jods
I have been looking for jods with a cell phone pocket for a while now. I used to be able to import German Sonnenreiter jods but I haven’t been able to find anything similar until I found Ride Proud jods. I was a little unsure about the leg length being an average American woman of 5”4. The length is a lil long wearing them around the house but perfect in the saddle. I wear Ariat Fat baby boots and I was happy to see the boot cut fit over the boots perfectly. I love how comfortable the jods are and how they fit me like they were custom made for me. I wear a size US 4 so I ordered the AUS 8. Kudos to Colleen for her amazing customer service. I’m already thinking about ordering the Horizon Jean jods. I have also spread the word to my barn ladies about these fantastic jods
Meghan, you wear these pants so well! They look great on you.
Thank you for such a comprehensive review, it will be helpful to lots of other women, I'm sure.
And thank you for spreading the word too!
Bonnie Rhynard-Buhl (United States)
I wish there had been an option for petite or "short" people. They fit me, but the legs look like I should have 1 ft. long stilts on my legs :-) I love the mechanics, the materials, the attention to detail. How was this detail missed? I should have asked.
Bonnie, send them back! I don't want you to be unhappy with your new riding pants. You will have received emails prior to this saying we offer returns and exchanges.
Having said that, you'll find the lower leg of the pants to actually be quite straight and we have many customers who have had their pants altered without issue..
Debra Simon (United States)
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!
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.
