    I heard a saying once that stuck with me that I really loved. "I have never had a run away horse, I can ride just as fast as any horse can run."

    OP, I'm impressed for this being self-taught. Nothing screams out at me except your legs popped forward a little when you jumped.

    Also, tall boots are wayyyy expensive. Invest in a $30 pair of non-leather paddock boots instead unless you're planning on showing :).

    Thank you! Ahh, yes that terrible leg. I will work on that!

    The tall boots Im looking at are about $250... Probably not too much for tall boots, but I sure don't have that sitting around. And honestly... I hate paddock boots... Lol... just... ewe... I would prefer riding in Cowboy boots over paddock boots But, it still might be something to look into. 30 dollars sounds SUPER cheap though! How well would they hold up to daily wear and tear?

    Hmm...as far as the paddock boots, I have had a pair of Ariats for about 3 years, but the outer side of each toe on the boot has completely blown out. I was wearing them as work boots, though, for two whole summers. They have been through a ton! Bathing, running way too far, riding, and muck. If you do get paddock boots, I personally would go for leather. They are about $60-100, but they will last quite a while....

    If you like the look of tall boots but don't want to buy them, paddock boots and half chaps are a good alternative, especially if you want to do small shows where they can be allowed.

    That being said, I've had a pair of leather Ariat paddock boots for at least 5 years and they're still great. Albeit, I haven't used them heavily until the past year, but they are holding up nicely.

    However, I personally prefer tall boots. I don't know what is, but I feel much more "secure" in them. My horse is slab-sided, and I feel very "loose" sometimes when I ride. Since I got my tall boots (also Ariats), I feel much more secure in the saddle and more capable.

    I have a pair of Saxon paddock boots that were $30. I originally rode in them every other week, then once a week, and now twice a week. I think I've had them for about one or two years now. They just have lines where they've been broken in from use and one rip on each boot from falls. If you don't like them, however, it might be worth it to just go with the tall boots. I wouldn't know since I've never worn a pair, I just know paddock boots are cheaper lol.
