I am looking to purchase new boots for barn work and riding. I am fairly new to the horse world and would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!

Western or English?

I bought a pair of Durango Rebel square toe pull on work boots about 4-5 months ago and they have been the most comfortable boots I have ever had. Then to top it off they are waterproof and I have waded creeks in them many times as well as all the mud we have had this winter. Great boots!

I love these boots by Ariat. They are basically a hiking boot with a heel. I got them originally because if you need to get off your horse while out riding you'll want a comfortable boot to walk in. I've had my first pair for years and can't seem to wear them out! Worn them all over riding and hiking--they are also waterproof--I tested it. My sis bought me a new pair for Christmas so I'm good to go for years more. :) 075 TAU/?srccode=GPSLTB&msclkid=35ddc0785cb21cf6b7a59cd

I have a pair of the Big Bass Anderson Bean boots and love the looks of them but they don't hold up to riding/being at the barn every day. They'd be better off as a nice pair of boots. Before these I had Ferrini's and I loved them! They lasted quite a while and they're really cheap!

Paddock boots, I like Dublins. For tall boots, Ariats. I use runners any other time, just get a pair that have a water resistant outer, not mesh.

I have found it much the best to have two pair of boots, one for cleaning and the other for riding. Otherwise I trash my riding boots right away.

I like Mucks for cleaning and Ariat Terrains for riding. I ride english trail. If I rode western I'd probably wear the same though.

What type of riding are you doing at the moment?

Like Avna, I also use two different pairs of boots. I like to have one pair of waterproof muck/rain boots for barn work and switch into another pair of boots for riding. Ariat paddock riding boots such as the Terrains or heritage are a good brand for both quality and comfort.

I always wear packers unless I am just hiking then I wear Kennetrek Mountain Extreme but for riding and general work lace up packers are great. Wesco, White's, Boulet, Nick's, Hathorn etc.

Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.

I swear by Ariat. My last pair of boots where Dublins that lasted only a few months but I have had my Ariats for over a year and they show no sign of breaking!
