    I am in search of some basic breathable boots for my OTTB that are quite durable. I don't need anything as protective as tendon boots yet as I am still training her and trying to get her consistent over cross rails, but I hope in the near future to be moving up! Breathable splint boots would...

    hi! I live in Iowa and it snowed TWO days ago and I do barn chores at 7am. I'm worried we are staring another Polar Vortex directly in the face and I am worried it will come sooner than we think. I have a great pair of insulated boots but I kind of hate them because of how bulky they are and...

    Hello! I am currently looking for a new pair of XC boots because my last pairs have not worked too well for my pony. He jumps fairly straight and doesn't knock his legs together, the problems are them getting wet in the water jump and rubbing his legs, scraping and breaking if he hits a jump...

    My thoroughbred is pretty clumsy and slips and falls occasionally. Last time she fell, she pulled a tendon or ligament, and her upper canon bone swelled. What type of boots or wraps would be best to help protect her tendons and ligaments in her canon bone? Thinking polo wraps, dressage boots, or...

    Hi! I want to buy my first leather riding boots, which I'm going to use with leather half-chaps. I have looked at Jodhpur ankle boots at Decathlon, they have a slip-on model, and a lace-up model. What are the pros and cons of each type of boot? I'm leaning towards the slip-on one, as I've...

    Hi! I've had these particular combat boots for a while now. They're government issued and were used in the Army and such. I was wondering if they'd be suitable for both english and western riding (more so english) since they do have a heel and, personally, they don't have a lot of traction...

    Hi I am looking for a pair of good quality western riding boots. I like the Justin Gypsy boots because of the style and the price. I noticed they have a thicker soul kind of like the Ariat Fatbaby's. Fatbaby's have a tendency to get caught in the stirrups because of the tread and the wideness of...

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a brand of tall boots that would be show worthy, yet comfortable? I've heard horror stories about boots that are hard and uncomfortable. Any advice on preferred brands/ styles would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi all, new member here :) I'm just getting back into riding again after a number of years off, and I bought myself a pair of the Fuller Fillies field boots (say that five times fast) because, le gasp, they will fit my calves! It's a miracle. I could only order online based on measurements as...

    Hi, folks! My partner and I are both planning to start taking riding lessons soon. Right now, we're sort of saving up and preparing. We've acquired a helmet for her, so far, and our next big item is boots. I thought I'd ask you fine folks for suggestions, as far as exactly what to look for...

    Hi everyone! I want to get my horse a pair of exercise boots. I'll have a link to pair I'm going to buy. Nowhere can I find how to size my horse for these boots. He's an average sized horse; 15.1 hh Quarter/Paint horse. Should I just wing it and get a medium, or is there a certain way to size...
