I wouldn't want them to be slouchy though so I'm not sure how loose we are talking about. What brands were you trying? Was some one at the tack store helping you? I like ariat if you can swing the expense.
I tried on a bunch of different brands, a few of them were ariat, I ended up getting ariat paddock boots, I can't afford to get tall boots now, but hoping next year to get a pair of tall boots
