Packer Boots anyone.

I usually ride in Red Wing Heritage boots and half chaps or sometimes Cuban heeled cowboy boots. Wish the tops and heels were higher on the Red Wings. Hate walking in the cowboys. With the right stirrups I could ride in my hiking boots and half chaps. Don’t suggest Ariats toe is too narrow and heel is too loose for me. Thanks.

This is what I have always ridden in. I normally wear an 8 but I get these in an 8.5. very comfortable for riding and walking, it has a bit higher ankle support. they don't have a very big heel, but I also use caged stirrups so I don't worry about that. and I wear half chaps.

My normal riding boots are these Red Wings:

Decent for walking. I think they are fine for riding:

Ariat made the only packer boots I've tried and I wasn't fond of them.

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

My son wore woman's boots until he hit the top of the sizing chart. We tried several brands but he found for a narrow heel and foot (liking space in the toe too) that the Justin lace up work boots worked really well. Rides in them and works in them. Wears with half chaps for riding.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.
