Manufacturer: Pelham Ascot
Model: English Dressage Boot
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: I received these boots about a year and a half ago as a gift. They were purchased online from a major tack supplier. It cost about $80 for a set of four boots.
Likes: These boots are great! The velcro straps stay firmly in place, the elastic isn't stretched out from overuse, and the leather on the outside is still in great shape. I have 4 medium boots and they fit my small QH perfectly. I typically ride 6 days a week and use these boots just about every time. The fleece on the inside maintains it's fluffy shape and doesn't deteriorate, and I can keep the outside fairly clean by hosing them off once a week. The boots fit snugly, they don't slip down, and you can use them year-round.
Dislikes: My only disappointment with these boots is how much hair the fleece picks up. Even in summer, when the horses aren't shedding, the boots seem to constantly have hair stuck to them. However, I personally don't mind it too much, because you can't see it when the boots are on the horse.
Quality: The design of these boots is excellent. I have the black boots with white fleece, and the contrast is striking against my black horse. They are comfortable for the horse, and after a year and a half of use, mine are still in great shape. No cracking, stretching, splitting, or deterioration.
Summary: I have recommended the Pelham Ascot dressage boots to a number of people since I've had them. Everyone loves how well the Ascots stay in place, because many of the other dressage boots like these tend to slip down over the fetlock. They are not overpriced and they come in many brilliant colors.
