The Hunter Balmoral Equestrian Neoprene Stretch Wellington Boots were put to the test by a member of our team in the saddle and around the yard.
The Hunter Balmoral Equestrian Neoprene Stretch Wellington Boots are a fantastic pair of all round boots for the yard – and, unlike many other wellies, they can be worn in the saddle. I used them for everything and found that they were great for long hacks when your feet can tend to get cold after a while as the neoprene makes the boots extremely warm. I also liked that they had the added reflective features on the back, which is a nice safety extra if you plan to ride on roads.
The boots were extremely comfortable, I’d liken them to a pair of Muckboots but with improved grip. I was surprised at the way they felt in the saddle, I had expected them to feel a bit chunky but they didn’t – I certainly didn’t feel like I was riding in a pair of wellies.
When was the product used and for what activities?
Schooling, hacking, mucking out and walking through fields.
I always have cold feet but thanks to the neoprene my feet were very warm.
Reflective details for added safety
Extremely comfortable and the sole offers excellent grip.
Their adapted design for riding means that you aren’t aware that you are wearing a wellington when in the saddle.
My only observation is that these are a bit too warm on milder days – however as we’re based in Scotland these are few and far between!
