Equitation Horse Riding Pants

Dark Grey Suede
  • The ultimate arena pants ...

    Designed to showcase your beautiful body so you can concentrate on your ride.

    The Equitation Horse Riding Pants rise through to the waist without a waistband and offer gentle tummy support to smooth out unwanted ‘curves’ we might have and the rear adjuster offers help for those of us whose pants tend to gape at the back.

    The Equitation Horse Riding Pants have thigh pockets on each leg, full suede seat and the underfoot keeper.

  • It's a personal thing. Some like clothing snug, some like them a little roomier, which is why our sizing covers a range.





    10 12 14 16 18 20 22
    BUST 83.5 - 89 89 - 94 94 - 98 98 - 102 102 - 106 106 - 110 110- 116 116 - 123 123 - 134
    WAIST 63.5 - 70 70 - 73 73 - 77 77 - 80.5 80.5 - 84.5 84.5 - 89 89 - 94.5 94.5 - 104 104 - 115
    HIP 86 - 92 92 - 98 98 - 105 105 - 109 109 - 113 113 - 118 118 - 124 124 - 138 138 - 148
    INSIDE LEG LENGTH 85 85 85 85 85 85 85 85 85


    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 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. 

    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.

     QUICK TIP:  

    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.

Equitation pants

I swapped the picadero for these & they are super comfortable and look great. The only adjustment I'd like is belt loops as I do like to wear a belt. But super pants. Might get another pair.

Loving my riding trousers

Love them, they do just what I want, very comfortable to ride in, keys and phone safe and so smart.


My equitation riding pants are my new favourite thing (other than my horse) The just fit my shape so well plus they are comfortable and stylish.

Im always a bit nervous buying clothes online but the chat facility was instant, reassuring and right on the money with the right advice on sizing. Ill be ordering some more soon! Deirdre - North Canterbury New Zealand

Equitation Pants

I am totally in love with my new pants, so comfortable, and stylish. I also feel I am sitting in the saddle better. The full suede seat is snug and adds to the quality of the fit. The communication from Colleen is exceptional , friendly and personal, I highly recommend Ride Proud Riding pants I am 64 a return rider and am pleased to say is’nt it nice when it just works !!! and these pants hit the mark Kerrie NZ

Perfect for curvy butt and thighs!

OMG I love love love my Equitation Pants. I am a curvy size 16 and used to having that feeling of the back of jodphurs sitting too low. The Equitation Pants sit perfectly and have a good stretch to them, while still being a thick flattering material. The 'sticky bum' actually has a good movement and definitely felt secure in the saddle. I most definitely will be buying another pair of these pants. Yipppeee for riding and being comfortable and looking and feeling good!!!! x

Beautiful Equitation riding pants

The previous purchase was a beautiful pair of riding pants that were not the right style for my ample buttocks. Colleen was straight onto the pair that would fit me. They fit like a glove I will be purchasing more of these pants. Ria Mt Franklin

Love them!

Love the Ride Proud jodhpurs I received recently. Beautifully made and very comfortable, it was a good buy.

Love them!

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!

Equitation Bootleg Riding Pants

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!

Love the look and feel of the equitation pants

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.
