I am looking to purchase new boots for barn work and riding. I am fairly new to the horse world and would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!
Well, it will depend on the environment you're dealing with. IF your horse is stabled so it can get messy then I would suggest having a pair of rubber slip on boots for mucking about and pair of lace up boots for riding and riding. If you can find a source for a reproduction of the boots the US Cav had gone to by the 1930s (and the money to buy them) I would go with those. I take the cheaper way and army boots which are about the same, just not as tall as the old Cav boots.I am looking to purchase new boots for barn work and riding.

My boyfriend pulls out his Corps boots all the time when we go hiking. For the same reason. He knows he can walk as many miles in whatever terrain as necessary in them.I ride in regular Marine Corps combat boots as well now days because they work well for riding but I can also get off and walk for as far as need be when necessary. I know I can walk 33 miles a day in combat boots and not have any issues. I wouldn't recommend it but I know from experience I can do it.
