Very durable pant, sizing was a bit odd, fitted my butt but loose in the thighs and back. Very hot but great quality and expect they would last along time even with everyday use.

Hips and legs fit well. Waist was very large. I am having a seamstress sew in waist and had belt loops as I like to wear a belt.
Lori, thank you for the feedback. This will be useful for other women considering the Equitation style.

Fit, form and function
These Equitation style pants are a lovely fit and Colleen made sure I didn't buy the wrong size to start with. The customer service gets a 5 star rating
The fabric weight keeps me covered beautifully, The hidden zips on the pockets keep the pants looking sleek and great, the underfoot straps hold the legs in place but these things have draw backs. I am too hot wearing these pants and wonder how they can work in Australia when I am cooking in Canada? I have to stand up in the saddle and pull the pant legs down to get my phone out of the pocket when it rings. So maybe I should have chosen a style with a flap covered pocket or maybe they are just incorrectly placed? The under foot straps require specific placing when I put on my boots and the strap is much too long for me, I will cut off the excess but wish the placement didn't irritate my foot.
I have also experienced some chaffing around my knee and lower thigh when posting.
I love the look, on the model and on me, but have a few niggly complaints and can't rate these as a 5 Ster product. I have had them for more than two months so I feel I have given them a fair trial.
Kandace thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. I'm sure it will be very useful for many customers considering the Equitation style.

Equestrian riding pants
Very happy with the fit after having to return my first pair due to being too big . Abit of a stuff up with return post but recieved a little gift as an apology which was both unexpected but greatly appreciated. Great company to deal with and the product is as described only tried on can’t wait to ride in them after I get them hemmed up due to being a shorty lol

Love these pants. Great fit and super comfy. Just wish they came shorter but got them hemmed. 😀

These are well made, thoughtfully constructed riding pants, the seams line up and the phone pocket is just right. However they did ride up over my Ariat boots despite using the heel straps. I adjusted the heel straps several times, tight enough to make it uncomfortable to sit in the driver's seat because they were pulled so tight over my knees. While they were comfortable for riding because my leg is more extended than when driving, they still rode up to my boots, exposing my socks, and that's just not a good look.
In the final analysis, they just aren't long enough for me.

Wonderful and they fit perfectly
I received my ride proud equestrian pants as I won our driving club raffle. I wish to thank Ride Proud for the support to our club.
My pants fit like a glove, look great and have lots of compliments when worn .. not only at equestrian activities. They are really comfortable and I love the large deep pockets and the smaller pockets - just right for class entry tickets.
Thank you for producing such a great product.
Debbie I'm stoked you're happy with them and we love to support those that support us, including your driving club.
Thank you for the review

Love My Ride Proud Pants!
I haven't ridden in them yet, but I can still tell that these are like nothing I've ever worn before, in quality, fit, and design. I'll not be stuffing this old butt into another pair of traditional breeches. Worth every penny!
Jessica Moreno (United States)
I don’t want to ride in anything else!
These are the best pants! I’ve never liked breeches, but riding in jeans isn’t ideal. These are the best of both worlds. The suede seat grips nicely, doesn’t rub anywhere. The pants fit amazing and are so comfortable. I love the thigh pocket when I ride out and need to take my phone with me. If I could give these pants ten stars I would!
Jessica, yes! That was exactly my thought process when I was designing these. We needed the best of both breeches and jeans. ✔
I love the photos, thank you for sharing.
