Tall boots! Hahaha *raises hand for being the odd man out* My ankles are extremely sensitive so tall boots, with their uniformity, don't hurt my ankles as much as the constant scratch of paddock boots. Also, chaps don't fit my calves, I rip every pair I use to get not even 3 days out of the package. The only paddock boots I've ever worn were when I was extremely young, or in pony club SPECIFICALLY for jog out. I never wore them after that, and when I quit I gave them to my riding buddy Brooke. Hahahaha. I don't find tall boots a heat problem. And as you know CYN, im a Texan too ;) haha. Its just whatever your preference is! I have always ridden in tall boots, and our group except 1 new girl, rides in only tall boots. I feel it also gives you an advantage in the show ring, because you know how its going to feel to ride in the same "outfit" you will be showing in. Idk, that's just me :) Im weird and I accept it. Hahahha
