I have a pair of Ariat Pro Baby's and I LOVE LOVE those boots, they have the wide toe too so you can add an extra pair of socks!

sorry Missy, I ride in a saddle with sneakers also

I usually just wear heeled boots (not my tall show ones!) for just riding around; they are comfy yet still have a heel & work well. With sneakers, you just don't have the same feeling.

Ride more, worry less.

I am another Ariat Pro Baby fan!!! I LOVE THEM! I wear them all year long but in the winter I bought some good socks...they kind of look like they have tinsel strung through them.. but they are thin and built for warmth. I love my boots too much to switch back and forth for the seasons. It's cheaper to buy good socks than another pair of boots. just my $0.02

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Looks like I am joining all of the other Ariat fans of the world. I wear a simple roper style boot that is big enough for the really thick winter socks and if need be, I use the Hothands hand warmers in the toes of my boots.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
