Fashion Boots for Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding boots back then were supposed to be made of high heels to prevent the foot from slipping though the stirrup. To keep from the leathers of the saddle in contact of the leg of the rider, Classic boots are high enough to the leg.

Nowadays, horseback riding boots are low-heeled, less than one inch but typically Cowboy boots keep a higher heel other than modern-riding boots.

Because of each rider’s taste of fashion in riding, different styles of riding boots are made. There are horseback riding boots for pleasure riding and those for horse shows. However, there are also Tall boots that ends just below the knee of the rider including those of field, dress, and hunting boots.

While Field horseback riding boots have ankle lacing, for the rider’s easy fit with the highly flexed ankle made for shorter stirrup length required for work over fences. These boots are choice of preference in Hunt Seat Equitation (forward seat riding), show jumping and fox hunting. Police officers wear this type of boots as part of their Class A uniforms.

Dress horseback riding boots are made rigid than the usual. They are chosen by dressage riders, eventers and riders of show jumpers.

If you have Hunting as a hobby, Hunt or Top horseback riding boots are suitable, it usually comes in black and has a cuff which the end is generally turned up. Heavier versions are made for general work and gardening but are not fit for riding because of their heavy deep-ridged soles.

For Field and few Paddock boots, they have an extra layer of leather on the toe which is called a toe cap. And Brown Tall Boots or Field and Dress Boots were somewhat more common during World War II.

For pleasure riding and everyday use, paddock boots are used that often comes just above the ankle. These are generally chosen or children because of their less expense for fast growing children rather than tall boots.

Your horseback riding boots doesn’t have to a ‘riding boot’, as long as the sole and heels are matched, just bear in mind that it will be your most important purchase.
