As with all boots it's hit or miss. I had 2 pairs of Ariat, and both fell apart after couple rides. With MT Horse I have their short winter boots, tall winter boots, and dressage leather tall boots, and all are very comfy and so far been going strong (knock on wood). I actually have heard not so nice words about Dublins and how long they last (but I never had a pair so can't really judge or share the experience).
