best riding boots

We know that with so much choice and so many different riding boots on the market, it can be tricky to find the very best riding boots for your needs. We’ve put together a handy guide which should help you to find the perfect pair of equestrian boots whether they are for the field, the yard or in the saddle.

Long riding boots

Traditionally, long riding boots are made from leather and are designed to be close-fitting yet comfortable. Due to the materials used, long leather boots can often be an expensive option, however are designed to last and mould to the rider’s leg for optimum fit and comfort. Long leather riding boots are popular for competition use and come in a variety of styles – including dress boots, field boots and hunt boots – to suit a variety of disciplines including show jumping, cross country and dressage.
