I use two boots to ride and work around horses.

One is a pair of Ariats. They are plain black, but look more like a pair of English-style paddock boots. However they are SO comfortable. I could wear them all day... and by the looks of them you could probably tell that I do. Time for a new pair!

A more Western style boot that I wear are my Tony Lama 3R series (which stands for "ranching, riding, roping" I believe). The are have a gorgeous design and are very comfortable and flexible. Didn't take much to break them in. The sizes seem to run small however; I usually wear a 8 in womens... my Tony Lamas are a size 6 1/2 womens.

Let's see, all I wear are Olathes when I ride. I have rubber boots or workboots for mucking. Then I wear tall brown or black 21" boots when I go ride Western and (with a pair of schooling chaps when cold or half chaps with English

I have a pair of fat baby's. They are very durable, provide great protection, last long, and have great traction too.

My sister has worn these and I wear these. but for riding, I DO NOT suggest to wear these because they will get stuck in your stirrup. however, if you were looking for some great barn boots -I would recommend these. just don't use them for riding - my foot has gotten stuck several times.

See my user name lol? Go get you a pair of Ariat Crossfire Caliente's

You'll pay about $250 for them unless you can find them cheaper than I did. They are my favorite Ariat's so far... And I've had a ton lol

I like my Justin laceups with the leather sole. It was ingrained into me to ride with a leather sole be it english or western, for safety. For about 15 years my favorite boots were Acme cowboy boots. They seemed to fit me better than other brands. I'd wear each pair until resurrecting them was impossible.

Get some Laredo boots! I got the copper kettle that's real leather and their so awesome! And they look good too and I only ride with them. My previous pair of boots were laredos that came from goodwill an they were in good condition. I wore them when I slipped off my horse into mucky water halfway up to my knees and they didn't get ruined or leak.

I only ride in horse shows I'm on my feet for 8+ hours, and they are awesome. They also fit my WIDE feet really well! I get the square toe, because I like the look of them and they are very comfy. For wearing them 5-6 days a week, they hold up pretty well and last a long time.

i love my ariat boots! i got a pair for x-mas, and im like peter Griffin with his footy pajamas-- I refuse to take them off. Lol. i don't recall what my boots are, but they are somethin like the legend-- i cant remember-- real comfortable and i wear them 24/7. :) they are so comfy to ride in too.

ive also had justin boots in the past and loved em too-- they lasted me years-- i could show halter in them, work in them, and go for casual trail rides in them too.
