Learn how to measure your waist, hip, and inseam for different styles of riding pants, and discover the best brands and sizes for your body type. Whether you need breeches, jodhpurs, or tights, this guide will help you find your ideal fit and comfort in the saddle.

You go your new equestrian pants! Now what?

Make sure your riding pants fit well right after you get them. For instance, verify that the pants are not too loose at the waist and the patches on the knee are aligned with your knee joint and not your leg.

  1. Try Them On: Put on the breeches and fasten them securely. Stand up and move around to get a feel for how they fit.
  2. Range of Motion: Perform various movements such as bending, squatting, and stretching to ensure the breeches allow for a full range of motion without feeling restrictive.
  3. Comfort: Pay attention to how the breeches feel against your skin. They should be snug but not overly tight, with no areas of rubbing or discomfort.
  4. Waistband: Check that the waistband sits comfortably around your waist without digging in or sliding down. You should be able to insert two fingers between the waistband and your skin.
