So, I have decided that I will be getting paddock boots and half chaps for showing and riding this summer. My reasoning, is simply because I can easily remove the half-chaps, and then put them on before riding/showing, and just have to wipe down my paddock boot. I will eventually get a pair of tall boots, but not yet.
So question one, wold you mix and match half-chaps and paddock boots?(paddock boots from one brand, half chaps from another)
Second, is half-chaps and paddock boots a better idea then just going out and buying tall boots?
My second question is for around $100CDN in ariats what would you recommend?
I seen a really nice pair of ariats that would cost me about $109CDN, but were comfy but had a more show boot design. I think they were one of the heritage styles.
