Model: Open Front Leather Lined Boots
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: I bought these boots on ebay slightly used for 70 dollars.
Likes: When they came in the mail I was ecstatic. These boots are super pretty, they are the color of most pessoa tack so I had to use hydrophane darkening oil to get them down to the shade I wanted to match my non-pessoa tack. It took quite a few coats, but they match now. They were already broken in when I got them and very supple, but they were not like some leather boots with leather so soft that it would scratch when your horse hits himself.
Dislikes: They don't fit! I got the smallest size possible and they don't fit my 16hh TB mare. They look nice on her, but I can't ride in them because they are really just too big. I tried cutting some leather off and punching a hole, but I have come to the sad realization that these boots just don't fit smaller boned horses.
Quality: Construction is great, seem hardy enough. I have never been able to ride in them but the quality really doesn't seem to be an issue.
Summary: If you have a bigger boned horse (warmblood) you should get these boots because you will love them. If you have a TB, arabian, or small quarter horse, you will still love these boots but you will not be able to use them since they will be too big and they will just sit in your tack trunk. Even though I plan on selling these boots again, these boots deserve a look if you are in the market for equitation boots.
