I have some Rock 47 jeans. They are okay, but usually have quite a bit of bling on them. They are a lower rise, which is why I didn't like them for riding. I could never find any long enough for me either. They are very trendy, but when it comes to durability they are not that great. The fit is a little different to. Fairly narrow in the thigh and seem to cut in around the waist some. Defiantly try them on before you buy them.

The Q-Baby jeans are great. Another one you may want to try are the Cowgirl Tuff jeans. Some have bling, some don't. I mainly wear the "Don't Fence Me In" jeans. They are easy to get in my size, a 27inch waist and a 36 inch inseam. They are pretty much the only jeans that I can find that fit around the waist and thigh, and are long enough and boot cut to fit over my boots. They are long enough that when I am on a horse they still stack around my boots. I am really picky about that. But they don't stretch as much as Q-Babys, at least for me. But I love them. Strong and durable to.

I have the guys version of Ariats that smrobs has and love them. No bling, straight forward everyday design, low walking heel and just really comfortable. Once you get them broken in. Mine took awhile, until I dropped them in the water trough and wore them until they dried.Also like smrobs I buy my jeans long at 38 inseams(I'm 6'2") and that works for me. I'm not sure they even make anything longer than that without paying a good bit more. OH, wrangler 13mwz cowboy cut jeans are my jeans. Sorry , not much help for you girls.

I have Ariats with the buckaroo heel and THEY ARE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE.

For riding. Not so much the walking, but when you have a horse, who needs to walk?

Here we have Mr. Pepper testing my new boots out -_-

FF, you've got great taste!

Exact same jeans my brother wears . Up until just a few years ago, he and I wore the same waist size. I borrowed a pair of his once when I went up to work in the feedlot with him. Granted, the 38" inseam was a little long for my 5'5 self. My only complaint is that they don't have the flat seams and there is a bunch of material right where the seams meet... in a very unfortunate place for women.

I've always been taught that the first thing you do with a new pair of boots is soak them in warm water for about 10 minutes and then wear them until they're dry...then oil the bejeepers out of them. Mine fit like a glove from day 1 after doing that.

But, that's probably not something folks would want to do with blingy "town" boots LOL.

I have a pair of square-toed Ariats and a pair of Justin Gypsys. The Ariats lasted me 6 years of riding, walking around, and doing barn work. And are still in great shape, just a bit too small for me. The Gypsys aren't even a year old and are already showing some wear. They also stretched way out and now I have to wear them with thick wool socks to keep them from falling off.

Both were/are very comfortable, but the next boots I buy will not be Gypsys.

Justin Gypsys and the Ariat Fatbaby boots aren't necessarily made for work. They were originally designed to be more of a fashion style boot. Now that the "fashionable" style has changed to pointed toe, tall-shafted, tall-heeled boots, (for women anyway) they have been set to the backburner.

For most people, they are comfortable, and they are nice because they are cheaper than most boots. They can fit well under some jeans because they have a short top. A 6" I believe. Ariat does have a taller style, the Probaby, that runs about 8" tall. The sole on those boots is a foam component, with only a very thin rubber lay on the bottom of the sole. And with it being a lug sole, (one solid piece) they cannot easily have heels replaced. For a basic boot they are okay, but if you are working in them they will not last very long. They also tend to stretch quite a bit, and have a shorter, wider, fit. So be sure that you get the right size if you get them.

I actually got a pair of Justin Gypsys ( My first pair of boots that weren't ariats! ) and they fit under all my jeans. Must have been my old stretched out tall ariats that were causing my troubles. Thanks for all the help everyone!!

Quick question here, so I am looking into starting western riding and I had a question in regards to the heels.
Justin Women's Sorrel Apache Boot - L2552
Besides the fact that I would consider these more for fashion, are the heels safe to ride in?
And other than fit and comfort preferences, is there a reason pointed toe boots should NOT be worn for riding?
I like taller boots and it seems harder to find taller boots with a shorter square heel so when these came up in my search I was happy but wasn't sure whether the heel would pose a problem?

Smrobs and KayceeJo, thanks for commenting on the Wrangler Q-Babies. I was reading this thread and JUST about to ask about good riding jeans. I go for trail rides with a group at my barn every weekend and have to change into my breeches and chaps. It would be nice to show up in the jeans I plan to ride in so I don't have to announce "I'M CHANGING!!!" to the entire barn to keep them out of the tack room for 5 minutes so I can have some privacy I'm the only horse person in my family so bringing barn clothes home has been's like they think they're dirty or something

Anyway, I'm excited to buy my first western trail saddle for trail riding and was looking for good jeans to go with it (and liked the look of the Q-babies), so thanks for the comments!

Haylee, I love your avatar pic, btw. It looks so peaceful and kind :).

OP, Ariats have a wider shaft than Justins or even Tony Lamas. I know because Ariats are the only thing that fit my man-calves.

Right now I have a pair of Ariat Tombstones and I love them. I wear them everywhere, even to work and just out and about. They have the longer squared toe, which takes some getting used to walking in, but they look good on me because I have longer, thicker legs and they help elongate and slim my leg. My go-to boots for trail riding, though, are Ariat Terrains. They're a cross between riding boots an hiking boots, so if I do have to get off and walk, I've got traction and comfort.

As for jeans, I wear straight leg jeans and my boots fit under them just fine without the tops showing. In fact, most people don't know that I'm wearing boots unles they look all the way down at my feet.

These are my every day boots:
I have them in the Sassy Brown.
