When it comes to choosing children’s horse riding jodhpurs, everything can seem quite similar but at vastly different price points – especially if you’re not a rider yourself. There are many children’s jodhpurs, breeches and riding tights to choose from – and they’re all a little different.
- Jodhpurs are usually worn with short boots as they sit over the outside of the boot and can be secured with jodhpur clips
- Breeches fit closer to the leg and are the better option under long boots
- Riding tights are more like leggings
What colour jodhpurs?
When it comes to colour, if you’re buying jodhpurs or breeches for a child who has their own pony or goes for riding lessons at their local stables, they’ll be able to wear any colour for the majority of time they’re in the saddle. Darker colours are obviously much easier to keep clean.
If you’re looking for children’s horse riding jodhpurs to wear for competitions or Pony Club, then you’re best to choose cream, beige or canary. White jodhpurs or breeches can also be worn if the child is going cross-country or doing dressage or showjumping with a black or navy jacket.
