Womens Riding Clothing Size Guides

Important note about size charts: All sizing charts are for guidance only, they are manufacturer supplied and are intended to give a guide to sizes. Although the charts we use are as accurate as possible, with high street sizes varying so dramatically, it is not possible to give 100% accurate charts as there is no accepted size criteria in the UK at the moment to work from.

Womens jodhpurs & breeches:

Dublin & Saxon jodhpurs and breeches:
Weatherbeeta ladies jodhpurs and breeches are marked with a waist and UK size, the waist on these jodhpurs is very generous and can usually fit a measured waist of approx 2” larger that the stated size (often upto 3” -4” in larger sizes) hence the UK size will appear to have a smaller waist size than usually expected.

Womens Riding Hats:

How to measure for a riding hat
To measure for a riding hat, you need to place the tape measure around your head, sitting just above your eyebrows, and leave one of your fingers inside the tape (against your head) to allow for when your head gets hot. This will give you your size in cm. If your head is very round, or very narrow you may need to go up a hat size and pad either the area at the back or sides to achieve a good fit. If you need any help with hats/fitting before or after purchase, please contact us for advice as we have been trained in hat fitting.

How to tell if your riding hat fits
You should put your hat on with your hair loose with no clips etc. to avoid any lumps and bumps that may effect the fit. When you put it on, it should go on with a little pressure, but not need to be forced. You should feel an even pressure all the way around, and not be aware of any extra pressure on the front or sides of your head. When the hat is rocked forwards and backwards slightly with your hand, it should move the skin on your forehead with it, not slide easily over the top. If you find your hat comes down over your eyes when you jump or canter, this is usually easily remedied with a strip or two of 'legal' hat padding that we sell, in the back to grip the hat at the base of the skull more.
