No. Gypsy's are HORRIBLE riding boots. Trust me. The girl who rides with me has a pair and hates them and i gave MINE away as soon as i got a pair of riding boots. The toe part of the boots is crazy thick and makes it difficult to get your foot in and out of a stirrup. Also they have insanely thick soles with grooves that makes you get even MORE stuck in the stirrup. Meaning if you fall there's a high chance of getting dragged by the horse because your feet don't come out of the stirrup.

I have a pair of justins that I love. I wore them all over NY when I went there for vacation. They are really comfortable and super cute. That being said, I don't ride in them because I use my old broken in smokeys. I would love to get some new boots someday but will probably go with a more classic type style for riding in. I used to ride in my fatbaby's all the time though and those are actually wider in the toe than the justins. I'm not sure I would have any issues with them. I bought a pair of pro-babys that were uncomfortable....

Ariats seem to hurt my feet (that's the fat baby/pro baby). The justins are more comfortable to me but if you are the kind of person that can wear any shoe and be comfortable then you have tons of different brands to choose from. I like this style of justin although I have not tried them on myself.

actually, these look comfy: http://www.rods.com/ladies-black-justin-q-crepe.html

I had a pair but I hated them. My foot kept sticking in the stirrup, so I gave them to my mom since she nevers rides.

I have a pair of Justin Gypsy boots that I LOVE. I have had them forever and they are falling apart and super old I still wear them over all the other boots I have. I actually just ordered a new pair!

I don't have problems with getting them in and out of the stirrups..They are super comfortable too. By far my favorite boots I've ever owned...
