Mt Horse all the way! I have paddock boots, tall show boots, and tall winter boots by them.

P.S. Ariat lasted 2 days for me, then had to return (zipper died).

Another Ariat fan here! I really like Ariat, I have a few different models of their paddock boots in the lace up and the zip styles. My favourite pair is the Cobalt XR Devon Pro Zip up style.

The new version of the Cobalt paddock boots is the Quantum paddock boots, they come in either the lace up or the zip up styles and in black or brown.

All my Ariats have been very comfortable and durable.

I love my Mountain Horse winter paddock boots. Stay dry inside and are well made. They were around one hundred dollars, but so worth it. They are also comfy.

Imagining life without a horse is like imagining life without food, water and air.

Blundstones!! I use mine for riding and also for work (I walk dogs during the day, train at night). They've been through everything (dog poop, manure, mud, rivers, snow, hours of hiking, etc.) and with a bit of cleaning still look brand new and feel great on. Surprisingly WARM and most importantly, always DRY. Mine cost me $169 here in Canada. Well worth it from a riding perspective and also from a professional perspective. Plus they look great under a pair of jeans just for the grocery store.

Totally agree. Now that I'm at the barn 12 hours a day and riding at least 3 horses a day, Ariats just don't hold up for me, no matter how well cared for they are. I'm actually going to switch to buying a second pair of tall boots for every day use because they last so, so much longer. I'll be getting a pair of Mt. Horse because people I know that do the same work I do have had really good luck with theirs.

The Dublin Pinnacles are awesome! A girl here at college has them and because the boots had a fair bit of rubber in them, we got her to touch the electric fence wearing them and she couldnt even feel the 8000 volts going through the fence because of the boots! A little joke we had going with her to touch the fence for a split second, end up HOLDING it! Alright back to topic, they are also really confortable and look good as well :)



And you can also ride in them :)

I love my Ariats! The ones I have are water proof and have lasted for almost 2 years!
