Kerrits Slender Rider

Bingen, WA –

Maybe it’s your first ride of the season. Maybe it’s a longer distance than you’ve ever ridden before. Whatever the circumstances, Kerrits’ Slender Rider Padded Capri ensures you return to the barn in the same shape as when you left. That’s because the stretchy, breathable capri is built with a soft moisture-wicking padded seat that cushions and absorbs every leap and trot.

We worked with our design team in Italy to construct a seat pad specifically for horseback riding, extending over the sit bones to target cushioning right where riders need it most; seamlessly molded with all-way stretch, and segmented to expedite airflow and increase breathability.

The soft, stretchy undergarment slims and supports thanks to compression riding technology. Zonal knit construction contours through the hip and thigh, while a wide waistband helps support abdominal and lower back muscles. The pad itself is made of exceptionally soft, breathable synthetic chamois with antimicrobial properties.

“Being saddle sore is a very real concern for riders, particularly when you haven’t ridden for a while or you’re going for a longer distance,” says Kent. “These capris address the issue while adding extra performance benefits, like breathability, compression support and slimming good looks”

Designed with a three-quarter length to streamline your layering system and avoid unnecessary bulk in your boots. Flat seams resist rubbing and chafing while making the capris virtually invisible under tights and breeches. Technical fibers draw sweat away from skin for quick evaporation in stop-and-go equestrian activities.

“We’re committed to the comfort of riders,” adds Kent. “This padded version of our bestselling undergarment capri gives riders a great new option for all-day endurance.”
