Horse Podcast Ep 201: Riding Boots – Essential Gear

What kind of riding boots do you wear? If you are an English rider are there a pair of tall boots in your closet? perhaps a short pair of paddock boots. Now a western rider probably has a couple of pairs, one for riding and one for going to town. Do you prefer the classic or are you more of a roper wearer? Join Ute and Heather in today’s podcast as the cover off Riding Boots your essential gear.

Riding Boots – English

For the riding disciplines that fall into the category of English Riding, there are a number of different styles of riding boots, intended for different styles of riding, from horse shows, to pleasure riding. Tall boots, which end just below the knee of the rider, include field, dress, and hunt boots. These are standard show apparel, worn by all competitors in the hunter/jumper and dressage disciplines. A lower paddock boot that stops just above the ankle, is worn by children, by some show competitors in the UK, Australia, and by those that.

Riding Boots – Western

There are two basic styles of cowboy boots, western (or classic), and roper. The classic style is distinguished by a tall boot shaft, going to at least mid-calf, with an angled “cowboy” heel, usually over one inch high. A slightly lower, still angled, “walking” heel is also common. The toe of western boots was originally rounded or squared in shape. The narrow pointed toe design appeared in the early 1940s
