Cant get riding boots off

I have Long moulded riding boots. The are easy to get on but i have trouble getting them off. I genrally have to get my dad to pull them off and even its a struggle for him. I just wear jodphurs and ordinary ankle socks with them. Any ideas on how it can be made easier to get them off. Someone told me to wear stockings will this help??

I would try using slippery knee socks; they are really thin. I forgot the brand though.

And yeah a boot jack will be very helpful.

I don't wear riding boots but my mud stompers are tall rubber. They are a bugger to get off without the boot jack. Get one and try it, I think they work great. I have just a wooden one, they make all types but the bug one is cool.

Boot jack for sure! I can't get my boots off without one unless I get help from people around me. :) I also wear 'sox trots'. knee hi thin stockings made for tall boots. I honestly don't know if they make a difference, but they're cute and my friend at the tack shop gives them to me for free sooo....
