Ovation (English Riding Supply)
Gold Circuit Pro Dressage Boots
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Ovation (English Riding Supply)
Model: Gold Circuit Pro Dressage Boots
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: These boots were purchased on line from Four Winds Tack Store for $180 although on line is misleading since you have to call or send an email to place the order. I'm glad I did call since their customer service was quite helpful in accurately describing the product. I needed a stock dress boot to show in while I waited for my custom boots to be made.

Likes: These were the only boots I could find that fit my size 8 foot, 15 1/2" calf, and 19" calf height. Most of the off-the-shelf boots were neither wide enough nor tall enough. At this price point, manufacturers make a profit by using less leather. I even tried to buy the Petries that are stocked by Dover, but was disappointed with the fit compared to the Gold Circuit Pros.

Dislikes:

Quality: These boots are the best in their price range. They are made in Brazil and good enough for smaller shows, shine to a mirror finish with no buff polish, and are comfortable with little break-in time. The zipper is a nice feature, but don't be vain and expect to squeeze into a smaller calf size. You'll break it. Another reviewer complained about the leather quality. Do NOT use a leather conditioner or any kind of soap on these boots. Wipe them off with a damp cloth and polish with regular shoe polish. I do the same for my $900 Cavallos.

Summary: For such a low price, I got more than I expected in these boots. The price of Petries has risen about $75 since I bought these boots. If you're not ready to spend $500 or more, buy the Gold Circuit Pros before the price of leather goes up even more.
