Shopping Guide for Winter Riding Boots
Wearing proper footwear while riding is always crucial. However, when it comes to the winter months, proper footwear becomes even more important. During these frigid months, you need footwear that can keep your feet warm and dry. Furthermore, should you fall while riding, good winter riding boots can keep your foot from sliding out of the stirrup. All of the winter riding boots we carry at HorseLoverZ.com are created with the cold months of winter in mind.
Our winter tall boots are available in leather or a synthetic material. All of the winter riding boots we offer are lined with material to ensure your feet stay warm. Also, many of the winter tall boots we carry are easy to get on and off because they have a zipper up the back. We also offer waterproof riding boots. Some of the top brands available at HorseLoverZ include Ovation, Ariat and Dublin.
Boots that are designed specifically for riding come in a variety of styles. The riding boot you choose should have a heel that is 1 to 1 ½ inches high and a small tread. This slight heal keeps your boot from sliding through your stirrup. Wearing boots with heavy treads (snow boots or hiking boots) is not suitable when riding because they tend to be wider than winter riding boots and they have a big boxy toe. These characteristics could cause your foot to get caught in the stirrups, making it difficult to dismount the horse. In addition, the heavier treads on these boots may make sliding your foot out of the stirrup more challenging.
Types of Winter Riding Boots
At HorseLoverZ, we have something for everyone. Our paddock and rubber riding boots are perfect for use while schooling, working around the barn or when it is wet outside. We also have waterproof insulated field boots, English riding boots and Jodhpur boots.
The winter paddock boots and jodhpur boots are also easy to get in and out of because they only go up to the ankle. Children frequently wear jodhpur riding boots while in the show ring because when they wear jodhpurs and leather gaiters there are straps that wrap around the child’s calf to prevent bunching up of the pant leg. However, adults wear Jodhpurs with or without half-chaps for their everyday riding. Jodhpur boots are available in laced, zipper and pull-on styles.
Ariat Winter Boots at HorseLoverZ
