Your boot or foot wear,should easily come out of the stirrups
I trail ride in foot wear i do not ride in, when just riding around home or at shows
I have trail ridden with hiking boots,esp in late fall, out in the mountains, but I also change to extra wide stirrups.
There are times I have to get off and walk, and for that I need boots with traction,plus some i can wear extra socks with
I use my English boots when riding English, as I also find other wise my legs get rubbed.
I keep western riding boots in the barn, to put on when I ride, as I hate walking with them for any distance, thus wearing runners for chores.
I was asked at one show, if I was making a new fashion statement, by I trainer i know.It was a very rainy weekend, and we had to warm up for trail outside.I thus put spurs on my rubber boots, to warm up, and to keep my show boots clean
Agree those combat boots have too much tread
