Western Riding Boot Question

Hey y'all,

I'm looking to buy a pair of boots for riding and some barn work this summer (I'll be working add a riding instructor and horse hand at a ranch).

I'm looking at Justin sorrel Apaches, Justin gypsies with a steel toe, and Ariat western heritage, round toe. Does anyone have experience with those?

Thanks!

I have a pair of Ariat heritages and so far I like them and they're holding up well. They did take a long time to break in though and definitely are made for people with narrow feet!

I've owned both Justin's and Ariats, but not the specific boots that you mentioned. I've had 2-3 pair of Ariats, but no matter how well I take care of them they still only last about a year. I literally had a reminder on my calendar to wash and condition them and they still didn't make it much longer. So I'm back with Justin's so and so far so good. I personally have trouble riding in the roper heel, and I'm short, so I ride in the higher heels and semi square toe. Either one is a good boot and should work well for what you're doing.Steel toe would be a nice plus.
