First tall boots!

Okay so I'm officially too old for short-stirrup, and today my instructor told me I'm going to need tall boots for this show season. Anyone know good tall boots that aren't super expensive???!?! (Don't really want to start up another dog walking business!!!!) Thankssss!!

Ebay used is your best bet, used anywhere is your best bet. Tall leather boots are pricey, even the lower end ones.

What size are you? :) I have a pair of these I might sell in a few months...not 100% yet though. If I don't you could still buy them right from Greenhawk for what I think is a really fair price - I love mine! Even though GH is a Canadian chain they do ship to the US.

Avoid rubber boots unless you want to sweat buckets.

I got my first pair from this place (below) I love them I got a few blisters at first but that's normal I got mine at a reduced price to because they were not going to be selling them there anymore that it the same situation with these and they look pretty nice!

I would just spend the money and get them or spend days and days like I did looking for some cheap ones! Lol

I wouldn't go the rubber boot way...........my daughter is in 4H and has done some other shows. The judges openly stated no rubber boots. You would be better off going synthetic over rubber if you need to. Try watching ebay or tacktrader for used boots...........4H tack sales are great to find them at too! If you really search the internet for sales/closeouts too. Dover has some great deals at times! Good luck!

There are two things you need in the saddle.....patience & a sense of humor.....

Even though you are still growing, invest in a good quality pair of leather tall boots. You will be very thankful for soft, broken in leather that will last you a while (an look much better in the show ring). Go to your local tack store and try on a few different brands and to get an idea of what size you are, and then look online.

I would say no rubber boots as well.

Ebay has the best deals :) I always select 'top rated sellers' to make sure the boots are as described.
