Riding Boots and Chaps

Riding boots and chaps are staples for both Western and English riders. Finding the right pair is key for hours of comfort and style — both in and out of the saddle.

Types of Boots and Chaps 

Western riders, regardless of their discipline, use western boots. These boots, which are commonly called either cowboy or cowgirl boots, are usually made out of leather, have a mid-calf shaft and come with a moderately angled heel. Styles of western boots can range from ropers, with a shorter heel and round toe, to stockman boots, with a tall shaft and deep scallop. Western riders can pair their boots with chaps for added protection or warmth when riding.

English riders use either paddock boots or tall riding boots. Paddock boots, also referred to as jodhpur boots, come in either synthetic materials or full-grain leather. Because these boots are shorter, English riders pair them with either leather, synthetic or suede half chaps.Tall boots come in field, dress or dressage boot styles. 

How to Choose the Right Boots and Half Chaps 

When trying to decide on the right boots and half chaps, you first need to decide what type of riding you plan on doing. Some disciplines have traditional styles of boots as well as requirements for what riders can and can't wear when showing.

Field boots are worn by hunters or jumpers because their design and soft leather allows the rider to easily drop their heel and get into a jumping position. Dressage boots, on the other hand, are designed to offer security in the saddle while allowing the rider to keep a long leg.

Regardless of which type of boot you need, it's important to try them on while wearing the same attire and socks you typically ride in. Changing the thickness of your breeches, for example, could affect the fit of your boots and half chaps. 

The Importance of Choosing Top-Quality Boots and Chaps 

No matter which style of riding you prefer, you want to choose top-quality boots. After all, whether you are in the saddle or walking around your barn or the show grounds, you want your feet to be comfortable and safe. For added protection from the elements, some boots also come in waterproof or all-weather designs.
