Riding Apparel Sizing - Finding Your Size
PLEASE READ THIS IT WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY! Several times a month we hear riders that bought a pair of boots or a jacket and it didn't fit even though "It was the same size as the last I they bought." The problem is that approach just doesn't work with riding apparel. So just because you took a size 8 Regular calf in an Ariat, don't assume you can wear a size 8 Regular in Treadstone, TuffRider, or Horze boot! Same with saddleseat and hunt seat clothes. One of our staff wears a size 4 in street clothes, a size 2R in one brand of riding clothes, a size 10L in another and a size 12R in another! We will ask you for your 'normal' street size, your Bust (with bra) at the fullest point,/Chest for men, waist just above the belly button, and hip at a minimum. Our advice - Measure twice, buy once!

Measuring for tall boots:
In a seated position, with the knee bent at a 90 degree angle as shown in the picture, measure as shown (B) or place the tape in the crease at the back of the knee and measure to the floor. This is the Back Height of the leg.
Now find the widest part of the calf and measure the circumference at different times of the day!!! Why? Here is an example - Our CEO's calves measure exactly the same in the morning, but by mid afternoon her right leg can be as much as 2 inches or more bigger than the left!!! She actually figured this out after buying a new pair of boots several years ago. The first time she went to ride in them was late afternoon and she couldn't get the right boot zipped!
Many manufacturers will add the heel to their back height measurement so if your leg is a 16" back height, and the chart says the boot back height is 17.5" that is probably perfect for you! Also, keep in mind that your boot will slouch up to 3/4".
