    I prefer a good roper with a heel, lessons the chance of getting hung up and dragged.

    Is it just me, or does time go by faster the older you get?

    CW - I'd start out with a good pair of paddock boots and half chaps before investing in any "horsey" items. A good pair of paddock boots are going to get much more use if you are going to start taking lessons or leasing. The boots you posted wouldnt be allowed for safety reasons at the barn I'm at.



    Another "getting old" realization...
    You realize you are getting old when you no longer care about barn drama, in fact, you didnt even realize there was barn drama going on!

    Too much tread on those boots could get stuck in the stirrup.

    That's a phenomenon experienced by everyone in every culture across the globe, Susan. There are various theories about why time appears to go by faster the older we get.

    I have found a pair of Ariat paddock boots at one store for 239
    And the same boots at another store for 139

    Both stores are close to me

    Scour online and ebay for deals...

    Some of my best purchases have come from ebay..head to a store, try on what you like, note the size and style, then hunt on ebay...I've purchased some high end items there for pennies on the dollar!

    I must be a glutton for punishment..anything under 16 hh is just too small for me, I like em tall! Grace is 16.1...a friend of mine offered to let me ride her 15 hh AQHA, I declined knowing that if I did the next time I climbed up Grace, the ground would look awfully far away!
