    I think hiking boots (given they have hard toes) are OK for sometime. I ride in cheap rubber boots when it's too wet. If you have TSC nearby they have number of different boots so you can try before you buy (like this one: Ariat Ladies' Fatbaby Boot, Brown Bomber - 707933599 | Tractor Supply Company ).

    As for helmets I know of 3, which looks "Western" (but you really want to try before you buy or buy from some place you can exchange, sometime it's hard to find a helmet that fits your head): Dover Saddlery | Troxel Sierra Riding Helmet. and Browsing Store - Troxel Cheyenne Rowdy Western Helmet and TROXEL Dakota Duratec Western Helmet Helmets Protective Equipment Western HorseLoverZ.com )

    These are my boots. I got them at RCC, but I've seen them at a couple tack shops. I've had them since July of 2009 and they are the comfiest shoes I own. I wear them all the time, even if I have no intention of riding or going to the barn. I have really narrow feet and a high arch, so I have to wear a 7. The pointed toe makes them long enough, while still narrow. Rounded boots don't do that as much.

    I love Ariat boots.

    As for helmets.. I generally don't wear one, but the wranglers had to start wearing them at camp after a freak accident with another wrangler. We have Troxels. http://www.troxelhelmets.com/products/legacy These ones. They're comfy and do their job.

    Hmm I am definitely seeing a trend with the Ariat and will be heading in that direction for sure. Those Fatbaby ones are pretty adorable but yes, I would need fancy socks. Will keep my eyes open for those!

    Fatbabys tend to be quite wide. Obviously I don't know the shape of your feet, but if you go to like RCC and talk to the people there, they very helpful in finding the perfect fitting boot.
