I've always been taught that a smooth leather sole is the best when riding horses but these days I seem to see a lot of boots with some kind of rubber sole on them. I was looking specifically for a tall pair of western boots.
Has anyone ridden in these?
I could see it being useful if you need some extra grip, for example if you do roping, but all I do is trail ride. I would be worried about my boot getting stuck in case of a mishap.
I suppose I could just get an extra size up, but I'm curious to see what everyone else thinks...
