Petrie
7000 Dressage Boots
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Petrie
Model: 7000 Dressage Boots
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: My show boots died on me unexpectedly this summer, and I wanted to replace them with something really nice but quickly obtainable. I purchased these boots from Dressage Extensions for $700.

Likes: These boots are semi-custom fit. DE will take your leg measurements and send you the boots that most closely fits your measurements. They are very elegant for the show ring, and the soles are simple and non-technical. Because they are semi-customs, the boots come off easily enough using a boot jack.

Dislikes: The break in period for these is probably going to be years at the rate I'm wearing them in the show ring. They are slowly molding to my foot and leg, but it is a painful journey to that perfect fit. I wish the leather wasn't quite so stiff in the ankle area, and the cut wasn't quite so high onto my anklebone. That's the only problem area I have right now. Putting the boots on, mounting up, and riding is fine, but if I have to walk any real distance in them, that's when the problems come in.

Quality: For this type of boot, you get awesome construction, quality, and materials. These boots will last forever if I continue to wear them only in the show ring.

Summary: I like these boots, and I want to recommend them to everyone, but given my trouble with the ankle area, I have to offer a word of caution during the break in period.
