tall boots

  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hello all! My question is this: do you think the extra stability that a tall boot can bring to your lower leg is "cheating?" For years I rode in paddock boots and half chaps, and have admittedly had a very difficult time keeping a solid, quiet lower leg position - namely in posting trot...

    Hi! So my new pair of Ariat Heritage field boots just came in the mail, and they need to be broken in badley. The problem is I have a show on sunday, and I need them then.

    I am currently trying to break in a new pair of tall boots, and had some questions about the "tub method": 1. Why do people say to walk around the house for the day as they dry? Why not wear them to the barn and/or go riding? Do you need to keep them clean during the process or something...

    So, being the stubborn stupid person that I am, I wore my brand-new tall boots to a show last weekend from 7am to 5pm. I figured this would be a good way to break them in... so. wrong. I basically have no skin left on my heels and they are killing me! Every time I take a step they hurt and...

    Many of us are looking for new boots for this winter! So, for those of you who already have winter boots you love, tell us about them! What brand are they? What do you like about them? How have they held up? How is the sizing? Links, pictures, etc would also be awesome, but not necissary :D

    I am looking for three things. haha they are pretty simple :-) First. I am looking for an english saddle. I would prefer a brown or reddish brown in color. Brand does not matter to me as long as it is in working order and has a regular size tree. It needs to be either 17 or 18 inches. The...
