Half chaps and paddock boots all the way. In terms of cheap half chaps, I like my ovations. 40 bucks. My tall boots are cavaliers, $300 new. I only bought them for shows, and never wear them if I don't need to. Most uncomfortable things ever.

Biggest waste of 300 dollars.

As for paddock boots, I hated my Ariats. I had them for 3 years. I really don't think their worth the money. Especially if you don't show. I have Smokey's now. Half the price of Ariat. Sure they aren't as "pretty". But hell, I could sleep in those boots they're so comfy.

I wear both. But, the tall field boots SUCK to break in! Once they are broke in, they are fine. If you are just playing, go for the half chaps & paddock boots.

I love the way tall boots look, but I love my half chaps and paddock boots. I usually run around in the mud a lot and being lazy like I am, I don't like cleaning my tall boots too often. My paddock boots are easy to clean and I don't have to worry about their shine and the bottom of my boots being clean.

Tall boots only.

I have a pair of zipper back field boots, a pair of pull of field boots, a pair of US Army M1940 cavalry boots, and a pair of pull on dress boots.

The dress boots get used for showing only. All the others get ridden with on a regular basis.

I ride in Paddock boots and half-chaps at the moment, but next summer when I start showing I plan on getting a pair of tall boots.

My tall boots lasted 3 months were as I love my wee boots! I have been known to ride in mucker boots as long as they're clean. I have a pair of regretta polar boots (yard boots) for the winter.
