need help with my riding boots ASAP!

Okay I wore my boots for the 2nd time today and I was walking two horses out of the barn at the same time. Which is very tricky when one wants to be slow and the other one is like trotting =) so I stopped and when I started walking the faster pony stepped on my new boot! When he removed his foot he actually RIPPED THE LEATHER! I was going to kill him but what should I do to fix it!!!!!! Is there some kind of glue?

where did it rip? Along a seam? I'd take it to a shoe repair place and see if there's anything they can do. A patch, restich a seam, etc. they're normally very affordable. I've taken a pair of half chaps that were on their last leg get practically reconstructed for less then $20!

yeah.... i'm not sure how fixable that is. I'd either 1) take them to a shoe repair place (yes, just a regular place you can find in the yellow pages) and see what they have to say. 2) call up your tack store or company the boots are made from and complain that you had the boots just a few days, all that happened was your horse stepped on you and they ripped! :) some places are amazing about return policies!

see the place that I got them from doesnt know anything. The boots are Valentini which are from italy.......but there isnt like a website that I could find. Well the thing is that I got them the 31st of may so I have had them for a while but I only wore them on monday for the first time. I read up on something called stormsure but im not sure if that it the right way to go...i don't want the rip to get bigger.

You'd be surprised. I just got some boots by Smith Worthington which are in England. When I had issues with them - even though I'd bought them elsewhere (ebay) they were brand new. I wrote the company explaining what happened and they sent me a replacement pair. Which shocked me but that's just to say businesses stand by their products.

thanks I guess I will try and find an email. I just think that the pony shoes nails were sticking out because there paddock if uphill and they need there nails to stick out longer for traction so the nail might have ripped them.
