Western stirrups can be fitted with Trapadors. However boots do not have to be so slick that you cannot function in them otherwise. Just not with grippy things on the soles.

Go to a store and try on several styles and sizes. Figure out EXACTLY what you want. Then go to e-bay and find it. It may take a few weeks to find the style you want in the size you need, but eventually you will. I did, twice!!! Just decide how much you are willing to spend and go for it!!!

I suppose you could have them rhinestone-studded or something - and maybe big silver conchos for the Western rider

But I think more of the kind of trail riding where I might be spending a good share of the time leading the horse.

I've heard that you should stay away from those big grooves on the sides of your boots...Someone (Who's name escapes me) at a show told me that the grooves could get caught in the stirrup. I would go for a boot with a nice heel and a smooth bottom. Most riding boots are designed like that.

The grooves are my only conern, but they are definitely better than tennis shoes. I've seen a lot of people get thrown and drug because of tennis shoes. -shudders-
