Foal
Smile Please help me decide which field boots to buy

My hubby has finally agreed to let me order myself a pair of field boots and now I can't seem to decide which to order. It's harder because I've got big calves and have to order them sight unseen.

The first pair I am debating is a pair of Treadstone field master/economy boots - these have a 'snap' at the top of the boot.

The other pair are the Mountain Horse Richmond field boots - which have a 'velcro' closure at the top.

I'm really torn, because both seem to get good reviews, the Mountain Horse do cost a bit more and seem nice, but they've got a velcro closure at the top. I'm worried that by being velcro it makes it seem cheap or it's just going to end up coming loose and flapping around.

Any insight/suggestions on which pair would be better or order would be much appreciated :)

On the tab at the top of the boots - are your a velcro closure? If it is, how is it holding up? Does it come undone much?

You must be lucky. Other forums are full of Dover's customer service horror stories.

SmartPak Equine, however, gets nothing but rave reviews.

SmartPak has the best customer service and return policies (and free shipping!). I have had so many problems with Dover.

Really? That's weird.. cause I've been to Dover over 8 times and absolutely perfect service.

Smartpak is awesome though expensive..

I have hook and loop closure breeches (velcro) and despite being on my horse bareback, in the saddle, tucked into my boots, out of my boots, they've never come undone. So I suspect if you have velcro on your boots, they should stay closed nicely. But who knows for sure.

Do you have any other choices? I bought mine sight unseen and I absolutely love them.

Sky, Dover is awesome to shop "in person". However their delivery (from website) often takes forever (been there myself).

OP, I have 3 pairs of Mt Horse boots (one tall for shows, one winter paddock, and I got winter tall boots this winter). Really like all of them. I've never heard about other brand though.

I love these boots as you can chose your calf width, they are comfortable to walk in, great to ride in and cost less than $200
