Finding breeches & riding tights to fit can be tricky, especially when shopping online. So i have created a series of blogs to help you out.

As a tall rider myself (5ft10) I always struggle with finding breeches that are long enough.  So having tried on all of our ranges here are my recommendations for long legs.

 

PS of Sweden Mathilde Riding Tights

ps of sweden mathilde wine tightsThese are my favourite riding tights for wearing for competitions, clinics and lessons. They are really comfortable and stay up and in place thanks to the high waistband.

They also look really smart and the belt loops, back pockets and faux zip panel make them look just like breeches.

Crucially for tall riders they are long in the leg!

 

ps of sweden mathilde sapphire tightsThey come in a range of colours including plum, black, grey, beige, navy & wine. £85

True to size if not slightly on the smaller size, so if you are unsure go up a size. They should be a tight fit to pull on.

Sizes Uk8-16
