  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have been struggling the past four years to find a western boot that actually holds up to daily work in caustic environments, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg (which, at this point, I'm willing to pay for a more expensive boot if it means I will be wearing it longer that 6-8 months).

My thing is I really want to trail ride her but I'm nervous about all the rocks out on the driveway at our barn...

  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Ok, we measureed my purebreed Appaloosa. Her back were 10" (length) and 12" (circumference), and her front her 9.5" all round. According to the sizing chart for SMB boots, she is a small on her front and medium on her hind. Does this sound right? Since they don't have her exact length and...
