Top 5 Ladies Riding Tights

Riding tights are a new, light weight option instead of jodhpurs or breeches. In an ultra-modern legging style, this option is a more flexible and more comfortable option, with no zips, or flys to dig into the skin. The key elements of the tights that make them ideal are their super stretchy material, allowing for more movement and flexibility, breathability, even when insulated, and sculpting materials and fits. Their flattering style is ideal for all shapes, sizes and body types and loved by all ages.

Since we started to see riding tights introduced a few years ago, they have really exploded in popularity. With so many brands putting their own spin on this fab idea, there are lots of options to choose from. So which are the best riding tights we hear you ask! We’ve listed some of our favourite styles to give a guide to some of the options available to you.
