Some boots never break in. I had a pair of Dr Martens (not ridings boots but a pain to break in) and I tried everything. Oils, balms, soaking wet and wearing, wearing for weeks, stuffing with wet newspaper etc. Never fit, my feet and those boots just don't match.
I had my ariat riding boots for years (short ones) and when I walked for more than half an hour in them they'd hurt - just the way they were. With your daughter though, I'd suggest oiling them and wearing them more.
