Recommended Riding Boots

A great pair of riding boots look great, while also helping you stay safe as you ride. The heel of a riding boot keeps your foot from sliding through your stirrups, and offer protection in the event that you are stepped on by a horse. They can also protect your legs from uncomfortable rubbing as you ride.

The Ariat V Sport Zip Tall Riding Boot (link to check price on Amazon) is a durable multipurpose riding boot that feels great. The only issue with this boot is that prices can run a little high if you’re aiming to keep your costs low.

The TuffRider Belmont Field Boot (link to check price on Amazon) look more like traditional riding boots, are made from quality materials, and hold up well over time if you take care of them.

If you prefer shorter boots, the TuffRider Starter Front Zip Paddock Boots (link to check price on Amazon) are my top choice. The price is very reasonable, making them a good entry level pair of riding boots.

If you’re looking for a western riding boot, our favorite pair are the Ariat Round Up Wide Square Toe Western Cowboy Boot (link to check price on Amazon) because they look incredibly classy, offer lots of colors, and they’re made to last.

If you’re planning to do some riding in the snow, the Muck Boot Arctic Sport Ll Extreme Conditions Tall Rubber Women’s Winter Boot is a rugged option that will keep your feet nice and warm as you ride.
