Thank you so much for the wonderful responses!
The project won't be done until late November, early December though. But, I will certainly let you all know the results!

I can't comprehend how boots can cost as much as a saddle. I mean, at the very least, you are using less leather, right!?

It's the custom molded stiffner in the dress boots that make them so expensive. A good dress boot fits snugly, but not tight, lies flush with the thigh/knee at the top, has a custom molded whalebone, high quality zipper and sole, is very hard and the leather is of such high quality that it shines without polish and has no blemishes.
A mid/low range saddle can have blemished leather, especially buffalo, there is no custom fit, etc. Mass producing something with the same parts every time is far cheaper than doing something very custom.

I've been riding about 16 years and my boots cost me about $25 bucks thanks to Smart paks clearance section!! xD I don't compete so my boots just need to work, not look all that pretty.
The boots I want and will never have are $550, custom made leather knee high boots with colored leather *-*

7 pair of quality dressage show boots: $270

Normally wouldn't spend more than $100 but these I'm planning on having for a while haha

Here are the results:

There's no statistical correlation between the number of years someone has been riding and the cost of their/ how much they are willing to pay for boots. So, just because you've been riding longer doesn't mean you'll pay more for your boots than someone who has just started riding.

Thank you all so much for helping me collect data!
Overall, I got a 100% on the stats project!!!! Have a Very Merry Christmas everyone!!

25 years I think?

Paddock boots: $200
Tall boots: $600

(although I think I got both of these on ebay so they may have been a bit cheaper)
