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 have purchased other riding pants but these are far superior. The only wish I have is that they came in lengths, even regular and short. I have to hem these about 4 inches and in doing so I lose the pant keeper.
I waited a year for the new Horizons Riding Jeans to come in my size and they were worth the wait! Its hard to find riding jods in the U.S. so when I found Ride Proud its been a revelation. I love the trail jods and have 3 pairs but I really wanted jean jods. I wear a size 4 U.S. and the 8 AUS fits true to size. They are a bit more stretchy than the trail jods but I found that wearing a belt solves that issue, The boot cut is more generous than the trail jod and fits over my Ariat Fat Baby boots great! The hidden jod strap keeps my jeans from riding up. The first time I wore the Horizon jeans to the barn, I received multiple compliments on how flattering they are and where I found them. The pockets are handy for my keys, cell phone and horse cookies. I can wear them all day and look great and be comfortable!
My measurements of course didn’t perfectly match one size on the Sizing Chart so I chatted with an associate about my measurements in comparison and she suggested what size would be best! And I’ll say they are perfect. Not only do they fit well they are very attractive with the full seat being indistinguishable from the pant fabric- How cool is that!? Can’t wait to wear them in lessons, clinics and shows. Being in the US, it took a little longer to get here but tracking was great and definitely worth the slightly extended wait. Don’t hesitate to reach out for sizing help. Quick responses, perfect fit! Thanks!
I cannot thank you enough for these riding pants. As a mature but fit rider I had become frustrated with having to ride in pants made for young women with youthful figures. Always too tight in the waist and too loose in the hips. Thanks to Ride Proud I can ride comfortably without seams rubbing and thigh chafing due to sliding around in ill fitting pants that I’m constantly hitching up. Worth every penny and I’m buying more.
I just got my Ride Proud jeans today and wore them in the Grand entry at the Ft.Worth Stock show and Rodeo Grand Entry. They were so comfortable! Love the pocket for my phone and no seam at my knee to rub when I ride. Awesome pants!
