Size guide

We keep our products honest, and this includes our sizes too!

The following is an approximate guide to our breeches, riding tights and base layer product sizing.

Our equestrian apparel is very true to size. If you tend to be in-between sizes, our recommendation would be to size down due to the stretch in the fabric. However, if you like a flowing fit (loose fit) we would recommend a size up.

For an example:

Model normally wears between a size 8-10 in base layers.

> Fitted style  - recommend a size small
> Flowing fit (loose fit) - recommend a size medium


If you have any queries about size or fit, please send us an email to  saddlecoaustralia@hotmail.com and we will be pleased to help.
