Bought New Field Boots

I just bought new field boots today, Ariat Heritages. Do you guys know the best way to break them in?

Yeah, wear them around the house. :) I'm sure they look nice!

Ride more, worry less.

Acctually, I wore mine like 3 times and then rode in them and riding broke them down so much! We were jumping too. Are they the Heritage II? That is what I have and it is PAINFUL lol you'll live though! No pain no gain!

Get a leather conditioner and treat them a couple times and wear them riding. I have a pair of Ariat Challenger field boots and after about 20 minutes of riding I forgot they were there and I love wearing them.

Yeah they are Heritage II, and after wearing them for only a few hours around my house they are quite comfy now.

Challenges were out of my price range, and while I was shopping I saw a pair of Challenges HALF off for 175. Unfortunately, my right calf was just a hair too big to be zipped in. I was mega bummed.

well, its nice to hear that they are comfy now but if you ever need to brake in a pair of boots again, and you don't want to be wearing them around the house you can put a hockey puck in both your boots for several hours.
