    What type of boots do you use? I want a good quality but under $250. Any suggestions?

    Hehehe okay then :)

    I would recommend the Ariat Heritage II Field boot.. they usually run about $230/pair. I absolutely LOVE mine, and have been wearing Ariats for years.


    Whoops... edit:
    what are you showing in? The Ariat field boots are good for hunter/jumper, but not in higher levels of dressage - you must wear a dress boot (no laces on the front) for dressage.

    Oh I jump. I love dressage but I love the feeling of jumping!

    I didn't want to spend to much on my boots. I wear mine around the yars so brought a pair of saxon equileather tall boots. I like them.

    Try ebay .. I found a great pair of Ariat tall boots that retail for like $350 and I got them for like $200 with shipping... they didn't have a zipper in them so I took them to the cobbler and he put one in, works great! :)

    Green Broke
    I know a ton of people who have bought Ariat Challenge boots (the zip ups that are like $350) and I know several of them who've had the zippers break on them. Within 3 or 4 months of owning them. And apparently Ariat does NOT have any kind of warrenty or return policy on broken zippers! If I had to replace my tall boots I'd take the new ones straight to a boot repair shop and replace the zipper for a more heavy duty one. Don't get me wrong, almost everything I own is ariat and most of the stuff is better then a lot of other brands out there, but the quickly decreasing quality level is making me really irate (and broke).
