I too have the Ariat brand of paddock boots. Mine new pair are the Quantum Performer Pro because I wore out my previous pair of Ariat cobalt xr. I think I paid 199$ for my first pair but, that's in Canada and I didn't get a deal on them at the time. My new ones I got for around 165$. They are really tough boots and I wear them every day for at least 6-8 hours and they lasted 4 years. I don't really have a favourite pair of breeches except I like ones with a small zippered pocket and a full seat if I have a choice.
