So, in the whole time I have been riding I have never been able to purchase a pair of boots. There was always something else my horse needed more. But now, I have set aside the money and am finally going to get a pair... But, I have a few questions; First, Im looking for tall boots, and... should I get pull on, or zipper? < that's my biggest question. I would prefer zip up's, and I would be using them a ton, riding 5-6 days a week, and lots of ground work, and if I ever did kick up some dirt on them (it will so happen) I would kill myself if the zipper broke... Are they prone to breaking? Or should I just stick with pull ons? And, would a soft leather, or a harder leather be better? My budget is 200 dollars max... I just can't personally afford anymore...
Currently, these are the ones I am looking at purchasing. Thanks to my dear friend VanillaBean who showed them to me.
