Fatbabys tend to get stuck which makes me nervous but for going out boots the fatbaby saddle brights are super cute! i ride in the traditional ariat cowboy boots and they are great i water proof them every three months or so and they hold up really well, i think they make shorter versins of the cowboy boot. ebay is the cheapest place to get brand new never worn ariats as long as you know your size.

I have these boots they are "Justin Ladies Gypsy" they come in lots of colors and are extremely comfortable. They keep your feet dry and warm also :) I paid about $85.00 for them (not including shipping)

I have Phat babies, never ride in them though, toe seems kinda wide. I find them very comfortable to walk in though.

Going to get my daughter some boots for Christmas.... was looking at Fatbabies but am reading those are not good for riding. True? I also have some of the Justin Gypsy boots in mind.... not real expensive (plus I have a coupon) and since they are her first pair, figured it would be smart to get her something to beat up and wear when she's riding or doing chores at the girlfriends place. She was "given" a 23 year old mare as her first horse and Roxy is about bulletproof but I want my daughter to have a boot to ride in instead of wearing tennis shoes all the time. Here are some pictures of my daughter and "Roxy". Obviously riding in low cut Puma's is not "ideal" although she's wearing some sort of boots in these pictures. Oh... and she's bareback just for a quick couple pictures. Normally she rides in a western type saddle.

My daily barn boots are plain ol' Justin ropers. My favorite boots I own are made by Olathe.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

It matters the kind of Fatbabies you get. Some have a grippy sole and look like this:

Others have the riding sole that looks like this :

Those are what I have. They have a smooth sole, they slip easily out of my stirrups and I can't see them getting easily caught. Though I would make sure the stirrups ore wide enough.

Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.
