Taking your measurements, writing them down and having them at hand when browsing your favorite stores just makes everything simpler.
Get ready to bid farewell to all that hassle and give a welcome to your newfound pals: the size charts.

How to measure correctly
Mastering hip and waist measurements is crucial for jeans shopping success! Here's how to do it accurately:
Stand in front of a full-length mirror for easy monitoring.
Bring your feet together.
Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your hips, including your butt.
Take note where the tape end meets the remaining length.
Stand in front of a full-length mirror for clear visibility.
Remove or lift your clothing to expose your bare stomach.
Locate your waist, the area between your hips and rib cage, usually above your belly button.
Wrap the measuring tape snugly around your waist while standing straight and breathing naturally.
Note the point where the tape end aligns with the remaining length.
It's a personal thing. Some like clothing snug, some like them a little roomier.
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.
You will note a variations in the leg length on the pants. The Trail pants have been cut a little short intentionally as they fall longer due to the split on the outside hem.
Our long legged riders will appreciate that we've included a 3cm hem together with a 1cm turn. Meaning essential you could drop the length another 3cm and still have a 1cm hem.

I’m 5’5” 140ish lbs
Ordered size 12 they fit very well
Even in my thighs and knees where I have problems finding a comfortable unsausage casing fit !!
The jeans are at the tailors being shortened to fit my 30” inseam
Have not been in the saddle with them on yet excited to try them out !!!
These riding pants fit like a glove but are super comfy to ride in for hours on the trails. Well made and strong but flexible material. As the title says they are "Perfect!" Made for lady riders. I'm very pleased!
Just love these pants. They are very comfortable to ride in. They have the stretch in them that they won’t constrict your movement. Plus no inseam to rub your legs raw. Love them so much I purchased a second pair.
These are now my favourite pair of riding pants. Super comfy to ride and walk around in. The material is strong but flexible. The tummy support is truly awesome but has enough flexibility to be comfy when riding. Perfect! I’ll buy them again. Thanks Ride Proud ❤️
Exceeded my expectations! Initially I ordered the Horizon and was so surprised with how fast they arrived but unfortunately I ordered the wrong size so when I went to re order my correct size it was sold out. I didn't want to wait as I had a camping trip coming up so I ordered the Trail in navy. Again they arrived within a week which is shocking as I live in Canada. The fit is perfect for me as the Trail is shorter in the rise then the Horizon. The material seems more dense and not as stretchy and the bootcut is not as wide and flared at the bottom. I love how the full seat is very generous as well. For me the length of leg is perfect while in the saddle. Overall I can't fault these pants or the customer service. I ride numerous horses in the day and it's a relief that I am not having to take my tall boots or half chaps on and off as I do regular with my breeches. For a reference in sizing I am 5'6" and weigh 142lbs and I am wearing the size 10 Aus. I ride dressage and have a jumping background and for more fun I like to take my horses camping. I will be buying another pair in brown! Thanks Colleen and Ride Proud.
