The right boots.

I can't decide if I want to go with paddock boots and half chaps or if I should just grab a pair of justin gypsy's and be done with it.

What is everyone's preference for trail riding?

Back in the day with my first horse when I was a kiddo, I just wore combat boots and that was fine with me! ;)

this time of year, I ride in winter paddock boots so that I can feel my toes when i'm done riding.

Once the weather is more reasonable, I ride in sneakers and half chaps. [i have cages on my stirrups, so getting a foot caught isn't an issue.] I simply haven't found anything else to be as comfortable for me.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

I love my ariat tall boots! They give me much more grip than my old chaps did.

I have a new pair of Justin Gypsy boots, a pair of Ariats that are getting pretty beat up, and a dressy pair of Chappel or Corral something like that boots that are too fancy to ride in!!

Gypsy's seem to be working out just fine.
