I bought a pair of Equitation Bootleg Riding Pants for my wife for Christmas, which she really liked but decided she would prefer the Limited Edition.
Colleen was a delight to deal with when we arranged a replacement. We had the new pants the day after we made the change, which was astonishing.
Cannot fault the service or quality of the product.
These riding pants are beautifully constructed for comfort and look absolutely fabulous. They wash up well also which is a plus.
Totally sold on the Ride proud Trail Gen 2 pants. I am a 40 year , who’s body was getting a bit much for jodhpurs and who gets a bit too hot due to body changing climate for jeans.
So I decided to try Ride proud pants. Well what can I say, super comfortable. I was a bit unsure of the suede bum as I didn’t like them in jodhpurs but the pants soften up and have to you beautifully after a few rides.
They wash great, look nice, phone pocket is super handy and the fit me true to size. Customer service is fantastic.
Already looking at purchasing other pair and throwing out all of my jodhpurs.
Thanks Colleen for a great product.
OK, I've had these pants for a wee while now. I really like them.They fit really well, and the design is practical. The suede seat is awesome. I feel very secure in the saddle, an I'm pretty sure the suede has kept me in the saddle in a few spooks already. I also reckon they look good - make me look like I know what I'm doing! If I could change one thing it would be to have the fabric lighter and more breathable for summer, but in a few months, when summer ends, that will stop being an issue. And anyway, despite having pushed through gorse bushes and rasped my leg along with my horse's feet, there is no damage to the pants at all. Definitely worth it.
Following recommendation I chose the size 16 when I normally wear a 14. 16 was definitely too big and Colleen was very prompt in exchanging it for the 14 after we'd exchanged some emails to clarify the fit. size 14 is perfect and I look forward to wearing it next week. Thanks for your great service Colleen
Love the Ride Proud jodhpurs I received recently. Beautifully made and very comfortable, it was a good buy.
Great pants and absolutely fabulous service, you helped me so much with choosing the right riding pants, thank you. Anneke
This is my second pair of Ride Proud Trainers so needless to say I was very happy with my first pair. Went for a different colour this time but still the same excellent quality. Can't fault the fabric, quality of manufacture or Colleen's service. Thank you Colleen and the Ride Proud family, proud to say a perfect fit two sizes smaller than my first pair after a concerted effort to lose weight. Cheers Jill
Amazing quality, true to description and size, love the fit and the cut of the pants,
The order was filled in a timely fashion
Will be ordering a few more pairs
I love my new trail ride proud pants. They say it's all in the detail and these pants certainly prove that. Colleen has thought of so many little features that add up to a lot of comfort and ease in the saddle. Am now thinking about my next pair. Rox
So excited to receive my Ride Proud equitation bootleg riding pant. Am finally getting back to riding after a hiatus and with daughters show jumping, it has been a good excuse to get back on a horse. Jeans were uncomfortable and I did not want the jodhpurs, gaiters etc etc, so the bootleg riding pants are perfect for me. They provide the ‘give’ required when getting on my rather sizeable horse, don’t cut in around the tummy or thighs and are nice and long for those of us who have longer legs. The tuck in the back is great too, having a smaller waist to hips ratio. And they look good…so I feel good! If only my riding ability was this easy to improve!
The Equitation Pants make you really want to swing up into the saddle and shine bright like a diamond. These pants are so classy and stylish. At the front, the waist is build to really shape that tummy in nicely and the way the back of the pants are designed, they make your backside look ultra cute! The equitation riding pants make you sit up tall and be 100% proud to be out and about either playing, training or competing. They are super comfy and the suede along with the attractiveness of the cut and shape, helps you sit nicely in the saddle. They were a tad fitted when I tried them on but with summer (and no air-conditioning in my house) everything sticks. After a short time they stretched out nicely and fit perfect. I buy another pair in a heartbeat!
Arrived today. Unfortunately even though they are bootleg they will not fit over my Ariat boots. 😞
Where do we go from here ?
Very good quality. They feel great on, very supportive! I was worried they were too tight at first but kept them on for a few hours and decided they were great. They are a bit tight around the thigh area which I first really noticed when I tried to climb on my horse and my leg didn’t want to swing over as easily as usual 😂. Now I am aware of this I just pull them up a bit more before I get on and there is no problem. Really glad I bought these, wearing my pants makes me feel good😀. Want to try the dark jeans when they are back in stock.
I haven't ridden in them yet, but out of the bag they have heaps of stretch, fit well, look good and feel just right. The pockets are really well thought out and well placed - not to big or too small. I am finding the sizing really good. My only quibble is that they slide down just a little, but that will be fixed with a belt (or by eating more...). Really good service and support!
I recently purchased a pair of these great bootleg riding pants. The customer service was second to none- it was great to be dealing and support a smaller Australian business.
When it comes to the riding pants themselves - WOW! They looked great on the website but when they got here I was even more impressed. They are beautifully made and finished - sizing is pretty much spot on and they are really comfortable. Look forward to many rides ahead.
Fabulous fit and fabulous to ride in. Whether I’m riding in a dressage saddle or campdraft saddle, long or short rides these are my go to pants. Stylish to boot!
I’m not the easy fit size 8-12 so I’m always a bit dubious about buying online and I like a sale, so buying a pair of Gen2 at full price was a big deal for me.
The arrived quickly and as a went to pull a face as I pulled them on I paused..... the slid on easily and felt, well .... amazing. Next think I’ve got one leg up in the air embracing the stretchy quality material. Love them - 100% worth the spend ... will be getting another pair
Awesome service. Love my pants!
I received my new Trainers Bootlegs very promptly after confirmation of purchase. Have now worn them & used the functionality of them & love them. Super comfy!
Beautiful heavy, but stretch, fabric and comfortable fit with trouser going comfortably over a mid calf boot
Just received my ridding jeans & l absolutely love them!!! They are really good quality and have cool pockets for phones etc. Very prompt delivery as well! Very happy!
Absolutely love my shirts. They even double for my business shirt.
Just received my Equitation Pants. The fit is beautiful and of course I rode them straight away to see if they really fitted when riding.
Worth every cent. I have never ridden in jodhpurs or jeans that felt so comfortable to ride in than these Equitation Pants. I'm glad I ordered two pairs.
