Alright, I'm a western girl through and through. Well my instructor (that I've been riding with, for the past what? 9 mos?) Had to do vet teching for 6-8 weeks, so know I'm with another instructor. When my current school closes, or they sell all their horses, which ever comes first :roll:, I'll go to her 'hole in the wall' lesson facility. Her words, not mine. Anyways, I'm looking to get into jumping. Anyways to say the least, gas is expensive so I'll probaby have to buy online. I've seen cheap, to the ridiculously priced
. I just want a simple pair of jumping boots that will last a while, will break in easily and nicely (once bought a pair of tap shoes, and after 4 weeks of wearing them and getting blisters, needless to say they met Goodwill, they refused to break in), that are moderately priced (say about $200-$300 if not less). To also make my life easier, I've been looking at boots with zippers in the back. Most likely than not their going to have to be men sized, because I have big, and wide feet (not the combo you want when looking for both shoes or boots......)
:roll: . The boots I have are from the mens side (skipped right over the womens, I knew they wouldn't fit, so why eye something I can't have..... typical.......) :roll: they are 8 D (I do believe). I hold no shame in my feet, just like I'm short. Just 'cause I'm short doesn't mean I can do things like other people can, I just have my own way of doing it
. I'm just really confused about the brands (good vs. avoid like a plague), and types of materials they are all made out of. And if you can point me to a online store that is good, that would be of help as well.
