Boots (for me!)

I am just planning on riding my horse around the property and on trails, nothing fancy.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good pair of boots?

I think the Justin Gypsy's look really good.
Does anyone have any reviews on these?

Thanks!

Do you mean boots for cold weather? If so, I highly recommend Mountain Horse fleece lined boots. I just got a pair this season. They are sooooo warm. Hopefully the zippers on those things hold up.

I have never had a pair of gypsies, but I hear they are comfortable. I absolutely love my Tony Lama's. THey are super comfortable and kind of warm. I had a pair of Ariat Probabies. They were comfortable, but the inside lining came out of them within a few months of purchase.

The liners on some Ariats are suppose to come out for those who need a 1/2 size difference :)

The lining on these was not supposed to come out. I bought them brand new and there was a small tear in the inside. It eventually grew and the whole lining came out. These are the boots I had: Ariat Women's ProBaby Western Boots - Driftwood Brown

Ahh that's sad... I would not have been a happy camper at all in that situation.

I've just been wearing my hiking boots. I wore my cowboy boots last fall, before it got too cold for them. The problem with any kind of cowboy type boot is that they are lousy for walking or rock crawling. And I'm likely to do both during the course of a several hour trail ride.

I read somewhere that it's better to ride in hiking boots than hike in riding boots. True statement!

That being said, I'm going to be looking for a pair of hiking boots with less of a lug sole come springtime. I use endurance stirrups and I'm not terribly concerned with getting a boot hung up in one of them--but less lugs makes it less likely!
