Which waterproofs are best for kids? – waterproof riding trousers or  waterproof full chaps?

There is nothing worse than a soggy, miserable child in the yard, which is why our Dri-Rider range of riding waterproofs are so popular. But we are often asked which waterproofs will do the best job of helping to keep our little ones dry and cosy – waterproof riding trousers or waterproof full chaps ?

Most importantly, both do the job of keeping you dry. All child Dri-Riders are fully waterproof and breathable, with storm flaps over zips and taped seams to keep you warm and dry whatever the weather. They are also hard-wearing – with a tough nylon shell and sturdy zips. Both styles also come in a wide range of waist, thigh and leg sizes to suit young riders of all ages, from tiny tots to teenagers

The basic difference between trousers and full chaps is that trousers cover your thighs and bottom whereas full chaps just cover the leg up to the top of the thigh.

Child Dri-Rider Full Chaps are the most flexible solution, with a fully adjustable, elasticated waistband and the option of wearing on the waist or lower on the hip. With full leg length zips, they are very easy to put on and remove – even in the saddle, so you can keep nice and clean until just before entering the ring.

We have a summer weight in blue and also fleece-lined in black for young riders who feel the cold.

Child Dri-Rider Trousers offer a complete waterproof riding solution whilst also featuring a grippy seat to keep you more secure in the saddle. They have convenient pockets and a high-fitting elasticated waist panel to keep them snug into the small of your back.

Child Dri-Rider trousers are great for all round riding and messing around in the yard.

The latest addition to the range are the Toddler Waterproof trousers – a simple pull-on and go design –  perfect for ponies, puddles and play.
