Field boots (laces at the ankles) are standard for jumping because they allow you to bend your ankle more.

Dress boots (no laces) are standard for dressage and are much more stiff.

I hope this helps :)

Yes, if you're a hunter or a jumper you'll want field boots. Ideally you want them to be as tall as you can and still be able to bend your knees. As they break in they'll drop down almost an inch so don't buy them at the perfect height, you want them just a bit too tall to start off. You also want them pretty snug without cutting off your circulation. You shouldn't be able to stick your hands down your boots. I'd also try and buy the best quality you can afford. The difference between cheap leather and quality leather is amazing.

Also, make sure you try them on with the pants AND socks you'll be riding in.
