I've been riding english for a few years, but decided I wanted to give Western a try. So I've had a couple lessons and I really love it, so I'm going to change over and wanted to get myself some western boots.
I went to check them out western boots and I admit I'm so confused by all the variations. I'm so use to tall boots, they are basic black and hunt or dressage - nice and simple. I tried asking a salesperson for help, but she just kept trying to show me really ugly ones that were way out of my budget
I'm just looking for a basic pair that I can wear for lessons and maybe some small local shows - nothing fancy. I like ones that are kind of like these:
Justin Boots Justin Gypsy® L9905 BLACK DEER COW
Fatbaby Ranchbaby Square Toe - Ariat
I get confused when I see the thick soles, thin soles, square toe, rounded toe etc. I have no idea what is the the best 'style' - is it just a personal preference? I don't know if thick soles are bad for shows or if round toes are out of style, etc. - I'm finding it all so confusing. I'm not even sure yet what type of showing I would do, I just know that I've really enjoyed doing it english, so I'd love to get into it western as well
