Womanly-sized riders, unite!
We already wrote about what we'd like the manufacturers to know (not that we did anything about it, but it's nice to vent, isn't it?)...now lets talk about the manufacturers we DON'T hate! What brands do you like? Does anyone make clothes that fit a 19" calf and 36" and above waists?
I have some tuffriders, don't know the model but they're kind of corded and have knee patches. I like them a lot, although they were a bit warm for summer. I also wear Devonaire tights from Stateline. Country Supply's tights and On Course summer weight full seat breeches don't fit over my calves. I have some Ariats, not sure of the model but they retail for about $89, and they BARELY fit...I can show in them, but it's not fun!
What've you got? I need to get a dressage outfit!
Larger Sizes for Larger riders
I ordered a pair of the Petrie dressage boots from Dressage Extensions. They were very helpful in getting me a pair of custom made Petries for $425. The aslo carry some larger calf sizes. I have an 18" calf.
Tropical Rider carries breeches to size 36". They are expensive for the full leather seats but worth the money. They wash beautifully.
